Don't forget WE are by your side! Tho' not there in person, I and many others here support you and wish you all the best.
I know how it feels to work out alone...it is hard...and can get discouraging at times...but like you said, stay focused and continue to use your journal as your "check-in", letting us in on your progress, or thoughts, how you are feeling, when you need a little boost, or encouragement. You will realize that you are not alone, we got ur back!!
I am so impressed and proud of your growth and achievements in martial arts! I worked up to yellow belt in Taekwondo a couple of years ago. I loved the workouts, they are tough...and sparring was hard on me physically...always bruised up!
Take care of that lump, and your finger and don't let it rock your confidence in your fight abilities. It is a learning experience that will make you stronger and a better fighter in the long run. You go girl!!
Congrats on the 179.5!!
