Well, if you’ve been following me for a bit now, you know I’ve had some medical ‘things’ going on that I have mentioned a bit here and there. Well,  in this episode, I’m giving you a big update on it all and taking you along for the full journey. 

As this episode is airing, I will be roughly 4 days post-op from a microdiscectomy on L-5-S1. A Lot of you know that I have had back problems for a LONG time and twice it has turned into big-ass nerve pain starting from literally my ass to the bottom of my foot. Never in my life had I ever felt so much pain. 

Surgery was NOT what I wanted BUT it is what I needed. I had exhausted all of my options and my body just wasn’t cooperating with me. 

I had feared this moment would come and in my mind, I knew recovering from back surgery at age 49 was probably going to be easier than recovering at 79. 

Trust me when I say ALL the feelings came out, especially over the last 5 months when it all started to go downhill. Anger, frustration, fear, anxiety, defeat, fear…did I say fear?!?! That was the one that held me back the most. And possibly pride. I didn’t want to give in to surgery, I wanted to heal without having to be opened up. 

Well, in this podcast I give a little “pre-op” story that led me to the surgery and over the next few weeks and months, I will be taking you all on the journey of recovery. I have had many clients who have had setbacks and, like me, it IS the end of the world. It really isn’t but I was there and feeling sorry for myself and being severely pissed off because I was in a place in my fitness journey where I was kicking ass and taking names ( let me have my moment) THAT right there was a HUGE set back for me because I knew everything would have to come to a dead stop and I’d be starting over AGAIN…but this time, my mindset is different and that is what I am sharing in this podcast.

I am human, just like you and I have had BIG feelings on all of this BUT I know I will make a kick-ass come back and live to tell about it all.

    I am proud of you. It isn’t easy to admit when we need help or when we have to “rest” in order to heal. You keep on being strong. Be thankful for each day and strive to heal. We are all behind you to support you along the way.

    1. Thank you so much, Jen. I appreciate that more than you know.
