One more time

This week has not been good. Earlier in the week, my knee was really painful and I was afraid to Crossfit. In fact, I even considered quitting Crossfit for a while so I wouldn't be tempted to do it. The pain peaked on Monday or Tuesday night, I forget which. I tossed and turned most of the night because my knee was hurting. It was not really the knee though, it was the inner quad muscle above the knee.

See that Vastus Medialis Muscle? I'm pretty sure that was the one that was so tight I could hardly bend my leg. Anyway, that muscle was throbbing all night long. In my half awake state I thought that it was the muscle relaxing. When I woke the next morning my knee felt good. Wednesday night I went to Crossfit and we did 60 wall balls and a bunch of other stuff. After the workout my knee felt really good. I slept well that night and when I woke Thursday my knee felt awesome. I didn't go to Crossfit Thursday for some reason that I forget now, but Thursday night my knee felt so good I took my brace off all night. I did wear it to bed though. Friday morning my knee felt so good that I went without my brace all day and felt good. Then I went to Crossfit last night and ran. This morning it is feeling good again. I want to be careful. I don't want to push it, but I need to start building it up again. It feels good to feel good.

Now, back to the title of this post. Using the knee as an excuse, and just feeling sorry for myself, I have been eating like crap all week. Knowing that we had nothing for me to take for lunch, instead of making something I bought lunch everyday. Yuck. There was also a lot of candy involved. A. Lot. I have got to get a handle on things. I have to.

Today I have Crossfit in the morning while my car is getting new tires. Then I have nothing for the rest of the day until evening. This evening we have a beer tasting at the box. I haven't reminded hubby of it and I think I may not. If he remembers we'll go, otherwise I may pass.  I don't know. We'll see. Right now getting my eating back on track is more important to me than hanging out with the Crossfit folks. I'll play it by ear and see what happens. But today, food will be better. No candy.
