Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation

After a knee injury you’re supposed to use the RICE method. Rest your knee, ice the injury, use a compression sleeve, and elevate your leg whenever possible. Or, at least, that’s what the internet has told me! I’ve had a few knee injuries in the last couple of years, most notably in the Summer of 2015 when I blew out both of my knees and could barely walk around at all. This time around the pain is only in my left knee, so hopefully I will be back in business in no time.

Speaking of rest, I’ve been trying to do as much of that as I can today. Trampolining still did a number on my body, folks. My entire back, the arches of my feet, and, weirdly enough, my elbows all feel very sore. It’s crazy because while I was jumping on the trampolines I felt great, but this morning I woke up and it was as if I’d fallen off the edge of a cliff and landed on a bed of jagged rocks. Either way, I have no regrets about going trampolining. It’s just a shame that my knee is messed up, despite having stretched beforehand. Ah well, at least now I’ve got a reason to get more rest during the day!

Today we decided to go see Moana for the second time, and man am I glad that we did. Ever since we saw Moana at the beginning of December both my husband and I can’t stop singing the songs and thinking about how much we loved the movie. It’s honestly my favorite Disney film of all time, and that’s coming from someone who isn’t a huge Disney fanatic. Anyway, I’m just glad that we were able to see the film for a second time in the cinema, and I hope we get to see it again on Christmas Eve with my husband’s family, too!

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for today. I better go make sure my knee is well rested and I will see you tomorrow!
