Lifting Again


I’d been prohibited from weight lifting until I reached the six month milestone from my surgery for an incarcerated umbilical hernia surgery. That milestone came and went on August 21. Did I start lifting immediately. Um, no. Why? Fear.

I feared another hernia and another surgery and another recovery. I finally decided the fear was simply False Evidence Appearing Real. So on September 6 I faced the fear. After 2o minutes of cardio, I cruised over the machines and did a light upper body weight lifting workout. It wasn’t much but it got me past the initial jitters.

People a lot smarter than me have told me that I can’t jump over fear. I can’t run around it. I have to push through it. And that’s what I did.
