Why I cried today. Lumpectomy: A Speed Bump on the Road to Healing:

MRI before lumpectomy

I've been known to shed a tear or two at the end of a long workout program, but today was day one, so I was surprised when the tears started to flow. The instructor was talking about how so often we sign up for some physical challenge for clout, to lose weight, to prove something to somebody, or to just have our jeans fit better, but at the end of the day, our reason for putting up with his S&#T is often deeper.

I thought about heading into surgery next month feeling the best I could feel. I thought about how I wanted to come out of this lumpectomy, knowing that my body was ready for healing. I thought about how, mentally, I don't want to live in a world of fear and doubt, but instead, I want to feel whole and grounded in the faith that this is just a minor speed bump on the road of life.

So yeah, I cried after a workout. Not on day 84, but on day 1. I cried tears of determination, and for that, I am thankful.

Of course, you can join me on this journey. Registration is open for this 12-week weight lifting program. You can start early or wait to start in the new year; it is totally up to you. There are also pricing options, so why don't you do this alongside me? I know I won't be able to finish all 12 weeks due to my impending surgery, but I will be there alongside you in spirit (and in our online wellness group chat) while I heal.
