Not much going on. Two weeks ago I decided to push it a bit and start walking four miles. Now, my knee is starting to bother me again. I've been stretching and icing and praying.
My endurance is great! I just need to see what's going on with my knee! I've been paying attention to my gait. I have the right shoes.
So....I'm back to the doctor next week.
My birthday was Monday. I did most of my celebrating over the weekend because I wanted to spend a quiet, reflective day alone. It was wonderful. I spent the entire day at Jeju Spa.
It may have been a little mistake because now I am quite dehydrated. Saturday I had a birthday lunch of fajitas, margaritas, and a shot. I was determined. I went to the park and walked four miles before going out to the movies. Sunday a did a little more drinking. I should have been doing a better job with my hydration considering all the walking and drinking I was doing.
Bottom line...I had fun but my body is paying for it. It felt great to sit and meditate while detoxing. It's been a challenging and wonderful year.
So I decided to look up what Louise Hay had to say about knees.
Knee problems - Stubborn ego and pride. Inability to bend. Fear. Inflexibility. Won't give in. "Forgiveness. Understanding. Compassion. I bend and flow with ease, and all is well."
Sounds just right. So, I had to swallow my pride and admit I made a mistake about something and did something I really didn't want to do. While my action is justified, I still feel awkward about it. However, I am accepting life on life's term. Hopefully, now that I've moved forward, so to speak. My knee will begin to feel better. I really want to get back to my Couch to 5K running goal before the end of the year.
I haven't forgotten about swimming lessons. Right now I do not have a bathing suit that fits. It's just a matter of purchasing a bathing suit and signing up for lessons. I'm working on the nerve and will probably sign up when I return from my last trip at the end of October.
