Back Surgery and Fitness Motivation

127// My back condition, back surgery consult and how to create impact and fitness motivation

Today is a different episode than we’ve had before on the podcast… I am taking a break from this podcast .

I have loved creating content, doing the interviews and creating a conversation around fitness being the access point to your highest version.

I am taking a pause to honour my own self care through the journey of deciding whether or not to get back surgery, an L5-S1 back fusion with a year recovery…

Our health is our wealth, and this philosophy and COVID has given me an opportunity to step back and evaluate how I’m showing up to myself, my clients, my family and all of you.  And I need to practice what I preach- practicing compassion and self-care.

I am taking a break from weekly podcasts to intentionally build a team for my body and my back, to build a structure of integrity so that the integrity of the broken structure of my back can be reinstated if possible.

Furthermore, I am on a mission to create change in the conversation around Social Justice for Black Lives, and Indigenous Lives.  My mission involves fitness as the access point to empowering others and as such, it take a tribe, and time and resources that I dont’ have the bandwidth for right now- so taking a pause from the podcast will allow for space and creation of what next. What the next conversation that will enable, inspire and move you.

 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for listening, for following along and for taking a stand for yourself, your health, your fitness and your life.

You are worth every micro step and every mini success.  Keep it up. I am cheering for you every step of the way even when I’m not on the microphone.

You’ve got this.

 

This isn’t goodbye, this is a pause.  Like the famous words from the classic bodybuilder himself, “I’ll be back”.
