Thankyou for all your comments on my last post. I took your advice and swapped my run for a doctors appointment (I really don’t think this is a fair swap haha). He says I have “Anterior Knee Pain”, which, from what I can tell is basically a posh way of saying my knee is hurting and not actually a diagnosis at all. Anyway, the jist of the meeting was that I should do no exercise (except walking) until it stops hurting, elevate it, ice it and take ibuprofen. So, thats what I’m doing. Its pretty funny actually, in every lesson at school you’ll find me sitting there with my leg on a chair and an ice pack on it. But hey, its doctors orders!
I’m not gonna lie, not running yesterday was hard, and I struggled a lot with the guilt of no exercise. But today I made a real effort to keep on track – wouldn’t want to miss out on WIAW !! Speaking of WIAW, this is what I ate:
cb&j oats. Nom, I love breakfast
Lunch was very nice actually, a quorn cottage pie, didn’t quite look like the box tho :/
Then for some epic fruit action:
For some snacking in the afternoon I wanted only 2 things, popcorn and these (I say these because I’ve had about 5 today)…
Dinner was chilli con carne with potato wedges, kinda nice but I feel very ill now. Meat doesn’t seem to like me and I don’t like it. But my mother thinks it’s an ED thing and makes me eat it (same reason why I’m not allowed to be vegan) eugh
I tried to disguise the taste with cucumber, it didn’t work. So, that is what I ate Wednesday. No exercise (rawrrr ) but I did go and visit a gym. Can’t wait to join!
How much do you pay for your gym membership? This one will be about £20 a month for full use of gym and classes (no pool tho).
Do you ever have guilty feelings if you are unable to exercise (eg. With an injury)? I’m struggling with this right now . Trying desperately not to restrict. Words of wisdom are welcome !!
