I started out ok, with yogurt, fruit, pb and a mini waffle - then I got to work. The big boss brought in "breakfast" - I had a asiago bagel and veggie cream cheese - and a salad at lunch. But then I had 1/2 a chocolate donut, then a honey donut, then a pecan roll - plus about 6 pieces of candy. So I came home and had 6 almonds, then I ate about 1/2 cup of granola ( I served half, then ate the other half).
No shock, I am feeling sluggish.
I have stopped eating for today. Tomorrow I will do much better.

When I am not thinking about all the things I haven't done yet that I need to do, I am thinking about love. I have been listening to "Tuesdays with Morrie" by Mitch Albom. One of the themes and quotes in the book is “Love wins, love always wins.”
Am I being loving enough? Am I choosing kindness most of all? That is, am I mostly choosing to be kind over choosing to pass judgement? I want to be the kind of person that is attractive because I am interesting, kind and engaged in living until I die.

I went to the doctor, and my knee, while still seriously swollen, will get better if I am smart about activity. She gave me a stronger anti-inflammatory, and told me that I would need to limit activity in the next two weeks, especially involving twisting. That puts a huge hitch in my giddy-up!
She also wants me to make sure not to sit for more than an hour without getting up. That is often a challenge.
I am thinking very much about exercises I can do that are not going to involve much knee activity.

Well, I am having trouble with my right knee. Any time I exercise with any intensity, I use a support on my left knee. Well, I am not sure why, but my right knee is swollen and painful. I worked from home yesterday to stay off it (mostly).
I see the doctor later today. This weekend I planned to do a lot of activity, with WinterFair (art show), Winter Warm up (contra dance weekend), my regular walk in the park with my buddy, and then a ballroom lesson on Monday. I have to figure out what I can do, if any.
In a couple of weeks I go to Cancun, and I do not want my knee(s) to be a problem.
Of course, I have Christmas parties this week and next, a major update at work, and a lot to do to get ready for the trip.
I guess this forces me to slow down - not my favorite mode.

Some time ago, I bought "Betty goes Vegan" - well, tonight I actually cooked up one of the recipes (vegan Beef Brisket and Cabbage). Actually I was so late from work, we both ate something quick and just had a some of the cabbage when it was hot. I also tasted the "beef" part (using Gardein's Beef tips - which is not actually a meat product). Well it was terrific!
I'm looking forward to eating this tomorrow!
Also, for the last 4 days in a row I have gotten in 10,000 steps! I'm on a roll!
