The doctor said my knee is fine. Perhaps a contusion?? I took X-RAYS and paid $30 in co-pay fees. But my knee still hurts. I walk with a limp and it's hard to walk for more than a few minutes. I've been using a cane. Using a cane is interesting as people seem to be nicer to you when you have one. Perhaps I will use one no matter what.

I had only been to an IMAX theater a few times in my life. Mostly at amusement parks that have that as an attraction. Well, yesterday I went to the IMAX in downtown San Jose to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Guess what? Those movies are tough to watch.. The screen is so big that I can't concentrate. It's like riding a dizzying roller coaster for 2 hours. I had to close my eyes for long periods of time to stop myself from getting sick. The cost is $13 for an adult ticket. That's a lot of bread my friend. I could have gone to a normal theater and paid $6 for the matinee. Oh well. You learn.

This morning I woke at 7:15 AM and went for a bike ride. The doctor said that riding a bike is actually good for the knee, so I've decided to start riding three times a day. Morning, Mid Day, and at night. We'll see how that goes. I stepped on the scale at the doctors office and I weigh a stunning 218 pounds. DOH!! That's a lot of stress on the knees. I weighed 176 in high school. That's 42 pounds more. But I love food so much. I just want to eat and eat. It's tough. I don't think I'm fat. I excercise way more than the normal person, it's just that I love to eat. And in large quantities. It's so enjoyable.

I'm gonna try to take this training very serious. I'll post any weight differences in the upcoming weeks. Wish me luck.
