So, I’m going to try this again.
I’ve been off track for so long it’s just been frustrating. I know what to do, it’s just been damn hard trying to get my head screwed on right enough to do it. I have one goal right now: lose inches to fit back into the majority of my pants. I’m way out of shape because of poor dietary and workout decisions during season and the “I don’t give a shit” syndrome that hits when I get super busy at work.
I throw in the Highland Games heavy events and it’s a ton of fun. My lightweight status means I have to have better technique to throw stuff so that it doesn’t end up throwing me. I’m working my way back to being fully healthy after ignoring the bursitis in my left knee and then rehabbing it enough to get through 5 months of throwing.
Lots of rotation, pivoting and posting on that left leg. It’s a lot better than it used to be (couldn’t sit down or stand up on it at one point) and I think I’ll have this thing nailed down by the end of the year. Little setbacks happen, but that’s to be expected.
Right now my workouts consist of deadlifts and ohp for the base and I throw in stuff on top of that if I feel like it. I’m working out in a gym that has a prowler, tires, kbs, bumper plates and a large variety of machines. The world is my oyster there I still like bringing in my own mini and micro bands to mess around with and to do my rehab stuff with.
By April of next year I plan to be fully healthy and to have put a little more muscle on my frame so I can kick some butt and make the other girls afraid of me. Not that that will likely happen… but it’s the thought that counts
