karinajean heard there was going to be necromancy!?

Hi, I'm karinajean, and I'm here for necromancy.

 

I MEAN IT MAKES SENSE, RIGHT?

after having 2 ACL repairs with cadaver ligaments, I'm just going to lean on into this one.

(also the memes are fire!)

NO SERIOUSLY THOUGH:

HIIIIII I haven't been here for like a year and even before that I was struggle bussing to stay on the boards.

I'm not going to lie. it's going to be a strugglebus for me. I don't have the computer time that I used to have and honestly the value I've gotten out of NF has always been keeping up with the other threads and making friends! SOOO I need to work on how to engage meaningfully, and within the time that I have.

buuut super mad huge props to my wondertwin @Starpuckfor posting about this 10 year celebration on fb and kneebuddy @Terrafor the earburn!

 

(reason number tenthousand and four that I might be a necromancer: I'm really good at making friends on the internet, and WHO KNOWS if you are all real live human beings, right? amirite?)

 

Since I've been here last:

* I've kept up with the crossfitting, kinda. I took some time off over the summer when my xfit coach abruptly got a new job at a local school district. I took a little break and joined a local-to-work xfit box and have been going before work 3-4x a week fairly regularly.

* I'm still doing the tkd, but I tweaked my left knee (original ACL repair about 15 years ago) several weeks ago - it popped during a lateral jump, and has been.... delicate? ever since? I mean, I finished the workout and it never really HURT. it just is stiff now, like, every day. So I haven't been doing all of the martial arts like I would like to be doing.

* ALSO, I am heavy. I know I'm really STRONG right now, and my muscles are a source of never ending joy for me. but? the thing I didn't expect? is that when my butt started to get bigger (AWESOME!) and my belly didn't start to get smaller (um, kind of whatever).... my pants don't fit now. I am using all my spare butt room currently, which means there's no spare BELLY room, which was also previously using, and I do NOT want to buy new pants. I'm a giant and hard to shop for already, and I do NOT want to do this any more. So I'm thinking... I need to work on that belly bit, which means I need to dial in the diet.

 

without further ado....

challenging challenge

* FOOD STUFF: I'm not doing terribly on food, but I could do better. I need to track my food and understand how I'm sabotaging myself (helpful hint: it's probably beers at home, sweet snacks at work, and also probably not eating enough vegetables with lunch and dinner so I'm filling up on delicious starches). Track food on loseit every day. if this isn't working out for me because I'm a whiny baby, just freakin' write it down on a piece of paper.

* EXERCISE STUFF: I think if I walk a little more, it will give my metabolism a little jump start. this plus food seems like a good plan. PLUS I still kind of play pokemon go, but rarely get a lot of steps in. Add in 3x 20 minute walks per week. This feels achievable and like a good first step.

* KNEE STUFF: I need to figure out my knee. I have been treating it like it's a sprain but I have no freakin idea. my worst fear is that I retore my ACL. Because I'm still waking up sore sometimes (which means swelling), and because I can't do a full TKD class with good stances, I need to figure this out. This 5 week challenge is a good bracket to get my guts up, go to an orthopedic doc, and figure out what my next steps are. Go to the doctor, find out if there's anything wrong with my knee and if there is, what I can do to fix it.

 

OK, got it? GO!

 

backstory. I'm karinajean, 42 FOR NOW, live in NY state, commute to NJ about an hour each way where I manage projects and clean up hazardous waste. I joined the NFA in October 2013 and transitioned over to the big scary boards (ahem, these forums) in April 2014. Since I discovered NR, I've lost about 25 lbs, tore my ACL / had it replaced with a cadaver ligament and rehabbed it, ran a bunch of running things, took over instruction for a class at the dojo, started with some weight lifting, and have reincreased by weight by about 20 lbs (note NOT all clean muscle lolz). CURRENTLY I practice tae kwon do several times a week, take weapons and boxing classes in addition (but am taking it easy because I have a kind of tweaked knee), and have a long-time overarching fitness goal of doing good form push- and pull-ups. I accidentally started doing crossfit in February 2018 and have transitioned from a baby xfit class near me to an actual xfit box near my work. I have a crazy mean (yet super sweet) cat and live with my husband full time and my younger stepdude 1/2 time. the 2nd stepdude is a real life working adult. I motorcycle, knit and spin, and am endlessly ignoring how messy the house and yard is.
