Today's goal: My goal today was to not snack. So, I put the snacks up high enough that I couldn't reach them. I feel like I did a good job of that. I've been hankering the Reeses Puff's cereal so I was trying to not go overboard with eating it, so that's why I measured it out. The part where I should have restrained myself today was snacking with over 300 calories in the evening.

Actual fitness: none. I'm a slacker.

Note on knees: I think they are healing. when I was sitting reading a book with my knees in a bent position...and then after a while I unbent them...they felt sore and in pain. Sitting the way I sat is probably the true test of how much better my knees are feeling because of how bent they are. So, I think there is more healing that needs to happen. On a positive note, The fact that I can sit with my knees bent like that, at all, is an improvement. Also, when I was dancing around in the kitchen to some music tonight, my knees felt decent, but after a bit I noticed they did start to throb a bit.

Looks like I'll be donning a swimsuit folks and learning how to swim...and run in the water. I think I'll try to run tomorrow to see how the knee feels. Maybe I'll do that during lunch.

Note on picture: Remember when I said I'd pick up some more vanilla type of teas. I came across this on the last shopping trip. I've only had one so far and so I need to have a few more to decide if it's better than Twining's vanilla chai tea.

Hey, I think I might need a taste test to decide what is the better vanilla chai tea.


  1. Taste test! Taste test!

    I would actually like to know what you think because I really like chai tea but some of them are too spicy for in the spices are too overwhelming to enjoy. Maybe the addition of vanilla tames it a bit? You'll have to let me know.

    Sounds like positive progress with the kness.
    You are not a slacker - you are taking care of yourself because your knees need rest so they can heal.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Let us know how the water work outs go. I have heard that those are very helpful to a lot of people. Keep going slow and steady, you'll be hitting the pavement in no time.
