It's been a month of me being out of commission, injuring and re injuring my knee over and over. I finally sucked it up and bought a knee brace, and holy crap does that thing ever help, I'm finally being able to bend my knee fully again.

I am slowly working Turbo Fire back into my life, heavily modified and every day my knee is getting stronger. I'm going to post my shameful progress pics soon to help me get re-motivated to continue my journey, either tomorrow or the next day. Strange how I've lost weight since I hurt my knee and yet my belly and legs have gotten fatter looking. Must have lost a lot of muscle while I was sitting around resting my knee. Fortunately my size 16 pants still fit as do all of my new XL (as opposed to XXL)shirts.

As soon as my knee is 100% I will be jumping back into my official Turbo Fire schedule and finishing up Phase 3. I can't wait I've been so bummed out and grouchy not being able to get my routine in every day.

Today I managed to do a very heavily modified HIIT 20 class followed by stretch 10 class, it felt AMAZING, I've missed Chalene and the music and the sweat, I hate sweating and I missed the sweat!

Check back in either tomorrow or the next day for my new progress pics! Won't be fun for me to share but I need to.


  1. Kat - I am glad you are getting back into it. I was wondering where you were.

    As for the progress pics, I posted my quite shameful start pictures the other day. No matter what your pics look like now you are inspiring.

  2. Hey Becky! I know I haven't been around much too busy moping and painting. I've only worked out 5-6 times this month and only 2 times with my knee brace, trying to take it slow enough that I don't re-injure it but fast enough that I don't get fatter. It's an annoying balancing act.

    I'll have to check out your pics, hopefully YOU can inspire me to jump back in there when my knee is fully healed! :)
