A month away from RNS :(

Hi ladies,

It’s now been just over a month since I’ve set foot in the gym at Rock N Shock. I miss it so much! I had knee surgery on 2/24 and I’ve been in recovery and physical therapy ever since. I am seeing my doc tomorrow for a check-up and hopefully will get released to come back and start modified workouts. Fingers crossed!!!

It’s been a long month. I have been missing the cameraderie, the support, the workouts, the push to work my hardest and keep focused on my goals, the feeling of strength and empowerment, Master Breaker and all of you. Just everything about RNS!

I’ve learned a lot about myself in this month and it hasn’t always been easy. I hate pain and there’s been a lot of it. I hate weakness and not feeling strong, and there’s been a lot of that too. I also wish that I could say I’ve been 100% committed to my eating since I haven’t been able to work out, but unfortunately that is just not the case. I feel like I let myself down in this way – and I am trying not to beat myself about it, now that I’m back on track with my eating!

I will admit, I turned to food while I was sad, mad or in pain – an old habit that I’m continuing to work on. Fortunately the worst is behind me and now I’m on the mend, seeing good progress in physical therapy and hopefully will be able to return to RNS for workouts soon! I’m so thankful for the friendship and support and I am LOVING the new Goal Getter teams and especially the team I’ve been placed on! 🙂

Can’t wait to see you all at the gym soon. If anyone else is struggling, you’re not alone and you CAN get back up and get going again! I’m living proof.

    […] not all of it was fun – there was pain and stress and way too much eating bad stuff. I complained about it over on the RNS blog so I won’t go into it too much […]

    Yay! I look forward to seeing you. Take it easy on your knee! PT is key! You’ll be back to 100% in no time.
