I'm here with a bit of an update for the final phase of 2014- and the update is that I'm not in it! I had surgery on December 1 to fix some old, painful scars on my stomach (from fertility treatments and surgeries) that had never healed properly. This is something I've needed to do for a long time, so I finally “bit the bullet” and got it done before the year ran out. I've been stitched up and had a few radiation treatments on my skin to encourage proper healing this time around, so I haven't been able to work out. I'm bummed about that, but at the same time, this surgery is another thing I've taken initiative to get done and stop neglecting to take care of myself as I've done over the past few years. I still have some healing to do, but it already looks so much better- all ready for me to get some IWF abs!
