brunch: left over sausage/potatoes
dinner: spaghetti squash with lotsa meat sauce
gratuitious snack: popcorn and some almond joy chocolate things at the movies

workout: went to a BJJ seminar. shouldn't have, but I did, my knee is okay though i took it easy.

I need to really watch my food... I'm trying to build mass and so far it's working and looking like mostly muscle but it's snowing tomorrow and I'm depressed about my knee and also without BJJ I don't ever leave my house since I work from home, so I feel trapped and want to eat crap all the time (and drink more than normal) so I need to be careful not to.

breakfasts:
eggs and bacon
almond milk/protein powder/banana smoothie

lunches:
chicken fajita salad
tuna salad (x2)

dinners:
frozen chicken masala or something (Paleo)

I did eat both popcorn and jellybeans one day though.
Oh and a whole chocolate bar.

Using my far infrared lamp on my knee since acupuncture, ice, Aleve/extra strength tylenol, Epsom salt baths, traumeel and Po Sum On haven't worked yet.

Trying kinesio taping and soft tissue release tomorrow. If those don't work, will try ART and/or ARP next.

My chiropractor told me to do my previous workouts again, with the knee brace on, to get it stronger while it still has kinesio tape on. So did workout #1 today. Then took off the brace for more rehab exercises.

Realized I actually did workout 2 on the 11th. Workout #1 yesterday. #3 today. I didn't finish the squats or romanian deads b/c my knee started feeling a bit sore, even with the brace on.

Did jits on Tuesday. Not a lot of time for workouts since I was working on a half dozen projects and barely sleeping several days last week, but I did manage to squeeze one in today. Just testing out my skill levels in Convict Conditioning.

3 sets of 50 wall pushups
3 sets of 50 shoulderstand squats
3 sets of 40 vertical pulls
3 sets of 40 knee tucks. which i can't do off a chair for some reason but can do off the floor (harder). i have a serious problem with balance
3 sets of 50 short bridges

Then tried and failed to do a wall handstand
