I've been having knee pain since mid August. After a visit to my PT and an orthopedic surgeon, consensus so far is that my knee symptoms are consistent with another meniscus injury. I'm going for an MRI today to find out for sure. Whatever the problem is, I am determined to have it under control soon, be it surgery, more rest time or physical therapy. This time around, I plan to keep my hips strong and muscles balanced to prevent any further knee problems.
I'm a total chocoholic. This week I challenged myself not to eat any chocolate - and I succeeded!! Since chocolate is really my favorite sweet, I didn't consume any other candy - no real desire for it. The big challenge will be to see if I can keep it up through the end of the month. The past couple of years, we've allowed our children to sort and play with their candy and then choose 5 or so pieces to keep. The rest we pack up and send to work with K (can only imagine what happens to it there :) This year, however, our Healthy Kids Committee at school is collecting Halloween candy to send to the troops - not the healthiest thing for them, but less temptation for us...
Have a great weekend!
What do you do with your child(ren)'s Halloween candy?
