Thank you @justin.ahrens of @treelinecrossfit for allowing me to really be a part of our #athleteprogram as the rehab continues! This 45# DB crushes my soul the last two rounds. Goal was 6-10 reps of Hang DB Clean & Jerk 1:00 work and 1:00 rest for 6 rounds. #bionicshoulder

NEWS FLASH🔥🔥🔥! Be sure to watch both videos😜Phase 1 completed #nomoresling #funeralpyre #notapyro Good news Is that I started physical therapy today and the next four weeks will include passive movement and range of motion only. The not so good news is that the doctor iterated my shoulder is the worst injury she has ever repaired and although she is confident in her work, she is not certain I will be able to return to violent movements like snatching and ring muscle ups due to the extreme shredding of my supraspinatus from the accident and “kersplat” on the asphalt. Taking one day at a time, staying positive is a full-time job, and recovering smart and slow. 5 weeks and 4 days post op. #bionicshoulder

5 weeks and 3 days post #bionicshoulder surgery. Follow up with surgeon tomorrow and first PT appointment right after. Trying to gently move that right arm/shoulder while doing a little exercise. A little time for me on this Mother’s Day. Miss you Mom and hope heaven is treating you very very well♥️ #faithgritdetermination #inseason @in3nutrition #itaintacomebackifyadontcomeback @treelinecrossfit @pangeabiomed @nova3labs @muscleupbars @crossfitgames @victory_coffees @blitzbelts @nutritionthatworks #homegym @assaultairbike #hopingtoburnmyaemslingsoon #ineedsomesleep😴

A little over 4 weeks post op and week two on vacation. So thankful for this man...not gonna lie, staying positive through this healing is not easy. Don’t like the changes in my body and decided to focus on replenishing my soul and not worry about getting into a gym and doing the same movements over and over. It’s easy to forget just how much trauma the surgeon had to repair as I sit on the sidelines waiting for my rehab to really begin on 5/15. Funny how many see my sling and tell me about their shoulder surgery; my takeaway is to balance finding common ground to have conversation vs trying to tell someone you know how they feel. No we don’t! This stinkin injury was massive and 360’, not “just” a partial tear, bone spur shaving or rotator cuff repair...nope, had this whole darn thing done remodeled. For whatever reason some days are just so hard. Elusive sleep, loss of muscle mass and shape throughout whole body and the never ending positive self talk to slay the dragon of doubt that perpetually tries to creep in. Did get into the ocean for the first time yesterday. The shoulder felt like it could handle the movement and the gentle waves, the cool water felt delicious. #thestruggleisreal #faithgritdetermination #bionicshoulder #itaintacomebackifyadontcomeback @treelinecrossfit @wodgear. @nova3labs @muscleupbars @nutritionthatworks @pangeabiomed @blitzbelts @crossfitgames #FFF

Good morning Molokai and Lanai. #healing #bionicshoulder #faithgritdetermination

@s_mbunce congratulations on your epic performance the past three days and ALL your hard work the past season. I am SO proud of you. These photos really sum up the emotions of your grit and determination and how overcome with emotion I was after watching you do a total of 10 Cleans at your 1 rep max. Thank you for allowing me to live my #AGOQ through you this season. Let’s do it together next year and skip the surgery 😂😰#proudpartner #faithgritdetermination @treelinecrossfit

Get after it #crossfitmasters and #crossfitteens! While all my friends are crushing the #AGOQ in their quest to compete @crossfitgames, I’m dividing my time between cheering on my training partner and trying to keep my body moving. For those of you texting and commenting about my arm being out of the sling, the doc gave me permission when I do squatting movements and I’m balancing myself periodically with my “good” arm and squatting in a safe place as I’m known to be a bit of a #klutz🤷‍♀️. 4 more weeks in the sling and then I will start something more than passive movement with my #bionicshoulder. 9-12 months for full recovery. #shoulderreconstuction

Post op day #12. Two Consecutive days in the gym, woo hoo!Where the heck does @justin.ahrens come up with this stuff🤷‍♀️ 10 rounds of 8 Sling Shot steps front/back/l side/r side into a 70ft D-ball (50#) 1 arm push w said Sling Shot still on. My posterior chain is on 🔥🔥🔥. My right bicep has already shriveled, loose skin hanging and it’s only been 12 days😰, but so grateful I’m getting to train even if I look clumsy and ridiculous. Getting a little sweat on each day keeps me from being totally neurotic locked up in the house. Thanks Justin👌 #shoulderreconstuction

Day 7 post op. People ask me if my shoulder hurts, honestly, I just wish I could sleep more than 20 minutes. Sleep deprived for seven days does not make for a happy girl🤷‍♀️. When I feel up to it, I try to get into the gym and move, if I don’t feel up to it, I give myself grace and latitude to just chill and try to heal. Things to think about if you are planning shoulder surgery, especially as a woman: #1. you will not be able to comb your hair so plan to have somebody wash and braid it or just shave your head😜 #2: Shoulder reconstruction is relatively painful but nothing compared to how your neck feels when you have a big arm that hangs from your neck all day long, Make sure you have a good chiropractor on board. #3: getting dressed each day is an evolution, give yourself lots of time. #4: practice dexterity skills with your nondominant hand before shoulder surgery because learning how to eat left-handed for me has been entertaining as hell. #somuchfoodmissesmymouth #5: stay positive every single day. #6: have a great training partner who will keep you company, load your sled, set up your equipment, and make you laugh. Thanks @s_mbunce 😘. Today’s work: 20-16-12-8-4

Post op Day 6 update! First day back to my home @treelinecrossfit and what better day than #westernwednesday🤠 Thank you @justin.ahrens for making my first workout fun and spicy 🙌! EMOM alternate max cal on Assault Bike, Air Squats, Lunges, 3 scap shrugs+3 hammer head DB curls+3 DB Press. It was fun but scary to have my right arm out of the sling but the Doc said it was 👌 as long as I didn’t have an accident😂. #shoulderreconstruction #bionicwoman #faithgritdetermination #itaintacomebackifyoudontcomeback #2019crossfitgames And, here’s my two cents for those of you having shoulder issues that are significant. Stop asking your friends, your coach, or yourself if it’s a serious injury, and especially stop asking on Facebook. Get an MRI, I can tell you from my experience there is no way to tell until you actually have imaging. That’s all for my soapbox today🤗. @crossfitgames @pangeabiomedical

Heck yea!!!! 🙏. Feeling abundantly blessed this afternoon after such a great follow up with my doctor this morning! Moved the body a little on the assault bike today, and picked up branches with my one good arm after the big windstorm here this weekend. Excited to get back to @treelinecrossfit.

UPDATE: Day #4 post op and a follow-up with the surgeon this morning. It was great to sit down with her and listen to what she actually dealt with in my shoulder. If you flip to the second photo, you will see what a shredded supraspinatus looks like, something like string cheese, LOL. She thinks the impact with the asphalt on March 5 dislocated my shoulder, shredded the supraspinatus, and caused tearing in the labrum and infraspinatus and injured the bicep tendon. Instead of a biceps tenodesis, she stitched and anchored it to ensure in her words that “you will have full mobility to get back to CrossFit”. She said rehab will take longer because of all the competing tears but she is confident that I will have a full recovery! She has cleared me for physical activity, limited only by the fact that my arm is to remain in the sling at all times during exercise🔥. Physical therapy for the first six weeks will pretty much consist of pendulum swings and creepy crawlers with my hands on the table to allow all of the stitches to really heal. Once the sling comes off in six weeks, the real rehab begins! Super super fortunate that Mike Hill of @oregonsportspine insisted I only see the best doctor for shoulder surgery, Dr. Lisa Lamoreaux, forever grateful Mike Hill🤗. #positiveattitudealways #shoulderreconstruction #bionicwoman #2019crossfitgames #faithgritdetermination

The Black Stallion and my Love♥️ @clarkdstuart. He’s been by my side 24/7 since Thursday, tending to any and every need: ice machine, food, bathroom stops all through the night, physical therapy, meds and lots of kisses. I’m the luckiest lady ever and he makes my heart so full. Glad he’s getting a quick nap😴😴😴. I always root for the underdogs! Fun fact about me...I’m a lifetime equestrian but most of you know me only from CrossFit🤷‍♀️. #shoulderreconstruction #bionicwoman #faithgritdetermination @treelinecrossfit

We just took the nerve block catheter out,whew that feels better! #day2postop #shoulderreconstruction #bionicwoman #faithgritdetermination

WARNING Looong post so skip if it’s not your jam. Thanks for all the prayers and support! Surgery update-
Good news is that the surgery is completed. The less good news is that it took twice as long as scheduled, four hours and in the doctors’ words and whatever this means “it was the worst repair she has ever had to do.”
Mindset is strong but not gonna lie, a myriad of overwhelming emotions....grieving, anger, disappointment, grateful, excited. I wonder if this is what it’s like to be bipolar, I’m not being insensitive to those who have been diagnosed with this mental health disorder, it’s just how I am feeling.
************************************
There’s a lot of folks who have reached out in person, called, texted, emailed, kept me in their prayers, kept me in their thoughts, however or whatever worked for them but just took the time to give a sh_t. I’m am so thankful to you and each of knows who you are.
But there are some really special people how have literally set everything aside to make me their priority so an extra extra special thank you to my husband and best friend and love of my life @clarkdstuart, my chiropractor and fix it all guy who somehow kept me glued together the last three weeks (seriously, this man is a magician when it comes to keeping your body healthy and functioning) @mike.hill64 of @oregonsportspine, my friend and often times my virtual training partner @byoak, my everything friend (coach,mentor, adopted daughter etc etc)@michaelabeauvaise and three of my bestie’s and peers from my #FFF @crossfitgames family @amypistol, @lumjoaquin and @kim_rogers10 (love you thoughtful and badass ladies!) Finally, to my everyday and often time what seems like all day training partner @s_ bunce, thanks for you love n support

My favorite quote “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy” (MLK JR)
Today marks the end of my quest to return to the @crossfitgames in 2018. I had a training accident on March 5th. I was sprinting full speed around a corner and ended up being flipped up in the air several feet and landing HARD on my outstretched right hand/shoulder/hip. I had a tremendous support team that got me through the next 3 weeks of the Open, all the time we hoped and prayed that time would allow the pain and swelling to subside to be healthy for the On Line Qualifier. A follow up MRI yesterday and visit to the orthopedic doc today revealed worst case scenario....total tear in the supraspinatus, partials in the infraspinatus, labrum and the bicep tendon won’t stay in its groove. Surgery next week...So, rather than being sad, I’m staying positive and I know that #faithgritdetermination and God will get me through this road block. I will miss the hell out of seeing my #fff ladies in Madison and I wish you all the best now and always. Thanks for being strong and brave and beautiful inside and out! I am abundantly blessed and will always be proud of being the 3rd Fittest 50-54year old in 2016 and 2017 and look forward to working my way back and earning a spot at a future Games! #nevergiveup @treelinecrossfit
