I had knee surgery on Monday and so far so good. Tuesday I was in a lot of pain, less pain yesterday, but the rest of my muscles were hurting from babying my knee. Today I am almost pain free. The knee is very tight and I can barely bend it, but at least it doesn't hurt.
Got to get up and shower today which is sooooooooooooo enjoyable after 3 days. Isn't it funny how something so small as a good shower can make you feel like a new person? On Monday I will have my post op appointment and hopefully after that I can get back to working out. I am so excited to get my step count back up to 10K per day. I hurt my knee in September, then had hysterectomy in December, so I am ready to get this new body back on the healthy trail.
Today is about day 18 of healthy eating (I forgot to look to see how many days on this streak). It is getting easier everyday to stay on track. Actually I think the surgery has been helpful to take my mind off of cravings, that's probably because of wanting to drink lots of water and eat lost of fruit and veggies so I wouldn't get constipated from pain pills. Haven't needed any of those pills today, but I know good eating habits will help with healing faster.
