After 2 weeks of taking it easy while my hernia and back pain calmed down I was able to lift again today (with hernia belt this time) and it felt great. I did take it easy and knock my weights down by about 10 Lbs, did not want to over do it. I am going to run tomorrow but, were getting warnings here in Ottawa for the tail end of Hurricane Sandy so I may have to run on a tread mill tomorrow.
As I have to work afternoons on my Birthday my Wife and Daughter threw me a dinner this weekend, we had a blast eating good food and drinking great wine. I only drink like 2 maybe 3 times a year and never enough to lose control. We had a Raclette for dinner, there is nothing better than sitting with the ones you love cooking and eating, we over did the food but lots of left overs 🙂
