Today's challenge: After the church Christmas play, they served cookies and a drink. I had three items. I didn't finish all the cake ( I did the frosting, however.) and the chocolate chip cookie was the bomb. I felt like I was controlled at this event. I knew I'd use my 200 calorie mid-morning snack for these treats. I was estimating, but I felt I did well on that too. Also, had a toasted Subway sweet onion chicken teriaki sub. Wow. Think I've found a rival to those Jimmy John's subs.
Actual fitness: none. Plan on doing some abs tonight yet.
Note on knees: They still hurt. However, the concern I had over my left knee still being an open wound after seven days of healing time....when I took the band aid off today, I could see that the two wounds had finally started scabbing over. Thank God. Maybe after a few days, I can try going swimming to burn some calories.
As for the pain in my right knee, I googled "contusion to knee" and found out that it can definitely take longer than a week to heal. So, I will continue to do my arm work-outs this week and test out the knee here and there to see if it's ready to be used. And wait.
Note on picture: After we got home from church today, my husband snapped a few pictures. I liked this one in black and white. I curled my hair again today, but tried to get it done more quickly so that it wouldn't take so long.
