My knee is better.  No where near 100%, but if not walking a great distance or going up or down stairs, I don't need the cane.  It's still a little tender when I try to sleep on my right side, but left side is ok.    I'm hopeful a 3 day weekend will help a lot.  Thanks for all of your well wishes.

Nothing else going.  Trying to stay non-political, but getting excited (in a good way.)  Other than, of course, the carnage that happened in Florida.  I didn't respond to your replies yesterday, and only posted that picture, because again, trying to stay non-political.  It's not always easy but for me, it's best for my sanity and blood pressure.

Going to spend the weekend resting and watching the Olympics.  Hope you are well; I plan to get to each of your blogs over the next couple of days.  :)

big oops

Monday around 3:30 pm, I tripped over a co-worker's dog.  Black dog, black carpet.....  I hyper-extended my right knee.  Never been in so much pain, short of a big ole kidney stone years ago.  Had to go the ER.  That officially turned it into a Worker's Comp claim.  Today was an improvement, until about 5 pm, then it started hurting again (could be from being elevated for most of the day.)

Ugh.  Back to the doctor Wed. morning.  Hope I can sleep tonight.  :(

No mas

I gave up grains yesterday.  I didn't lose any weight the week before, and my body is finally back to being able to handle veggies (including raw in salads), so I'm ready to give up grains.  (again.)

I had a lot of luck with this about 5 years ago; lost over 70 lbs. and kept it off over 2 years.  (I was stupid to go off of it.)  With my ulcerative colitis diagnosis last summer, it's been a struggle to regain the ability to digest veggies, but now that I can, I don't need the crutch of grains anymore.

I also danced yesterday; almost 30 minutes, so that's good.

So saying 'no thanks' to the donuts in my department this morning was easy.  We also have a department lunch at a restaurant today; I've already perused the menu, and will be having the spinach-strawberry salad.  Sounds delish.  Hubby will get the zucchini bread that comes with it; I even brought a zip lock baggy for it. 

I got this!

they lied!

Rain is maybe on the way!  For next week:

FEB 12
S 10 mph78%
FEB 13
PM Showers
SE 10 mph71%
FEB 14
E 7 mph61%
FEB 15
S 9 mph72%

Yeah, 50% is no guarantee, but this is the first time over 10% since I think this year?  Certainly in the past 3 weeks!

Heaven knows we need it!

I ain't got nothing.  A big, fat nothing burger.  Work is busy, I come home, do things, I go to bed.  Wash, rinse, repeat.

But I didn't want you to think anything was wrong, so I'm posting.  Just not inspired to post at the moment.  No real reason why.  Just is.
