It's all in the perspective

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

So...I'm going in for surgery tomorrow (Open Ventral Hernia Repair, for the curious). I've worked through the fear and anxiety over the pain and recovery, and I'm focusing on some interesting things.
How am I going to get my Sparkpoints while in hospital? How much extra belly fat can I talk my surgeon into removing, and is that "cheating"? emoticon
How soon before I can go back to my cardio, and how long before I can feel safe about starting strength-training? I'm really anxious to start the last one, as I feel it's the puzzle piece missing from my current regime.
So, I'm in this weird place feeling a little anxious, but mostly hopeful about what this change will mean to my ever-improving health. All things considered, not a bad perspective!

    No, taking belly fat is not cheating, it's helping. Here's to all going well.
