I am having a knee problem. My right knee is puffy and swollen (not terribly bad, but definitely noticeable), and walking is ok, but going up and down stairs hurrrrts!!! :( And I have to go up an downstairs a lot...both at home and at work.
I took some ibuprofen, and I'm going to try to stay off it/away from stairs, and see if it gets better. I didn't do anything to it, that I can recall. But I've been having this problem off and on over the past few months. I am wondering if it's because of the weight I'm carrying is finally getting to me, or what.
Still trying to eat well. I had some frosted mini wheats for breakkie, tomato soup and an apple for lunch, more cereal when I got home for a snack, next time I feel peckish I'll probably have some chopped veggies or something, maybe some nuts. I'm feelin' some spinach artichoke dip, too. Not sure about dinner yet.
I guess I'll give cardio a break until my knee sorts out, but I'll do some strength stuff to work my arm muscles and leg muscles (but not weight bearing stuff).
I'm a little disorganized right now, also getting school stuff in order, but I will settle into a groove with this soon, I hope.
