“I’m hungry”… Yes, that is what my stomach has been saying to me a lot lately! Even though its not really hungry, it just thinks it is!
My physical activity has been very limited due to my hurt knee. So why is it that when we are sitting around we decide that we need to be eating something too?
I am taking suggestions for healthy snacks. I believe my body will thank me later for not eating a whole bag of potato chips, but hey chocolate does have health benefits, right?
As for my knee, the Dr. has reached a diagnosis. A injured plica. Its a tiny part of your knee that is like a strand of spaghetti. It may be tiny but it can cause trouble! Especially when walking or trying to go down stairs. The knee pops and it feels like its going to buckle on me. A very weird, painful feeling.
Fortunately it is something that can be fixed fairly easily. I had a cortisone shot and I am supposed to give that 7-10 days to work. If that doesn’t work then I will most likely have arthroscopic surgery done. So there is a light in sight. May take longer than 7-10 days to see it, but it will come!
In the meantime I have plenty that I can do while sitting. Reading, writing, editing, and the list goes on. I can still fold laundry too. Oh yay! I can go out with friends to eat, which I just did today. Yes, there is that food thing again, but I had healthy food this time. Grilled chicken and salad.
I can also still cry while sitting and watching “This is Us” That show is everything that people were telling me it was. A powerful drama. “The Good Doctor” is another very good show. I just found out that “The Good Doctor” is filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia. That was cool to learn, considering that I have a dear friend from there. I will pay more attention to the the outdoor shots now.
Time will heal and before I know I will probably be back to running again. Wait a minute, I don’t run! I will be back to long walks again, until then … I will be grateful that at least its not both of my knees that are affected and I will wish for snow. Watch the beauty of the falling snow as I “patiently” wait for my knee to heal.
