Th New Goals.

Me and my mentor were talking last week and she thought setting goals for me would be a good idea, as I'm a very goal oriented girl. I've been thinking about them, and I've come up with a few, feel free to add any of your own!
1. Stick to 3 meals a day no matter what, even if the meal is small, always have 3 meals a day.
2. Weigh myself once every 2 days, instead of every day. This one is really hard for me!
3. I am only allowed to go to the gym 3 times a week max, and if my knee starts hurting I MUST stop.

Number 3 is because last night I went to the gym with my knee already a little painful. I did 40 minutes on the cross trainer, got off and thought it would buckle. I tries to walk on the tread mill but the knee went crazy. So I went on the bike for 10 minutes and then did weights. All I could think was keep working through the pain. I left the gym and could barely walk, my knee buckled a couple of times on the way home. My dad (doctor) thinks it's chondramalacia patellae, which is common in teenage girls.

On other news my friends have calmed down a little, they are still mad with each other but they are being civil.

Also I've lost 5lbs in the last 2 and a half weeks, which I'm really happy about, because for me that's taking it slow, and not rushing into weight loss. Here is what I normally eat:
Breakfast: 20g ready brek and water with 20g raisins.
Lunch: Yoghurt, 2 satsuma's.
snack: a cracker.
Dinner: What ever my family are eating.

I like these goals! You need to look after your poor knee, and I know what really helped me in recovery was the three meals a day. As long as I had these regular foundations, things were off to a good start.

hehehehe
I had chondramalacia patellae when i was 12-16 and it was super annoying, but i grew out of it, and it doesnt trouble me at all anymore! a knee support helped a little while i was training and riding-but i have to admit, i stupidly ignored the pain a lot as well.which just maesa it hurt for longer!ibuprofin was always good for the apin, and i used to icepack my knee a lot as well, and use ibuprofin gel-but your dad would know a lot more about that than me!

how are you anyway my dear?

Goals are usually good things. You're making me want to make some goals too. I particularly like goal # 1. My knee does the same thing... it hurts and, when I use it "too" much (read: at all), it buckles too. I never knew what it was... thanks for your dad's thoughts. Keep up the good work with the meal-based eating. And, if you eat more than you are now, that'd be totally fine too because that list of food is definitely on the too-small side But one step at a time.
