Help me somebody!!!!!

What am I doing???? My body is soooooo sore!!! Goodness gracious. My legs and knees, lawd ham mercy!!!! I want to quit! I want to quit!!!!!!!! WAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!!

I will not quit though, hell to the no!!!!!!!!!! I will not quit! I'm a survivor!!! I beat cancer's ass and I shole can do a 5k. Might be slow as a damn turtle, like a little old lady with her flippin cane but I'm gonna give it my all. I am behind in my training. Like by a week. Missed working out two different times. I made it up, I'm just behind on the schedule is all. *sigh* This is hard to do alone but I can do it. I have to talk to myself while I'm working out. I keep telling myself, "You can do it, don't stop! Yes it's hard but don't you quit, don't give up. You're almost there and think of the rewards." This goes on and on and on til the workout is over and then I feel amazing!!!

I have yet to jog outside. First off I'm scared as hell. This body is so not the best and I am so not graceful. I'm really afraid that I'm going to fall. I am not steady on my feet at all ever since the leg surgery of 2007. *Humph remember that one?* I will test it out in the backyard first before I go out to the park. Gotta register for the race too. Keep trying to talk myself out of actually participating in a "real race". Just doing it for myself. Giving me something else to focus on now.

*Bunny running/jogging a real race, GTFOOH*

Who would have ever thunk it? Not me and that's for sure. Gotta get over this hump. Week four starts in two days. Heaven help, heaven help me please!!!!!!!!!!! Week three is soooooooooo hard!!!!!!!!!! I'm feeling like a failure but then again not, all at the same time. Does that make sense? Oh man I have to read that quote again. How quickly we forget.

Dollface fell off the schoolbus last Friday and hurt her tailbone. I say it wasn't bad because they were having a Halloween party and she didn't want to leave school. That evening I had her soak in the tub in epsom salt and wintergreen alcohol. She said she felt better because we had major events to participate in on Halloween. But now 3 days later her lower back is stiff, sore and swollen. *Major sigh* I looked at it tonight before she went home and girlfriend didn't look so good. Man is this gonna be a crazy year for my babydoll or what? Talked to her mom and she put one of those medicated patches on her back but she said she didn't see any swelling. 0_O

My baby better be ok. She was really uncomfortable this afternoon. It's about to rain again and I think she's feeling it in her body. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for her. I sure hope so, cause if Dollface ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. TRUST.


  1. Just stretch, soak and stretch some more Sis. Helps get blood back in the muscles and increases circulation which reduces pain.

    Are you replenishing fluids/protein/carbs?
    Do you have a masseuse?
    Are you getting your rest?
    Are you using the green alcohol and epsom salts?

    I hope so.

    Baby girl will be okay, but you need to be too.

  2. So when is the 5K anyway? Cheering you on over here.

  3. wow you entered a race? go girl! I hope dollface is feeling better. the last line made me smile.

  4. @The Brown Blogger, man that's it! Thank you so much, nope I am not hydrating properly at all. I drink a couple of cups of coffee and maybe one bottle of water. Not good, not good at all. I was rubbing that green alcohol all over my legs but I stopped about a week ago, damn what is up with me? Just seems like common sense but then again common sense ain't too common.

    @Queen, it's on Turkeyday. Going back and forth with the decision but I'm signing up by the end of the week for sure, I think, lol. If I give them my money, I'm not gonna back out of it. Thanks for being my cheerleader from afar :)

    @MsB, yep I think I'm running a race, mind playing tricks on me and Dollface is getting better, makes me smile too.

  5. I have to talk to myself constantly on the treadmill ... "you can do two more minutes" over and over again. Stay hydrated!

  6. How are things going? Still making progress?

  7. Wow this is great that you are doing this....keep pushing daily and you;ll be surprise at how far you can go. I hope Doll face is better now. Congrats to you for going after this.....

  8. Happy Belated Thanksgiving to you and the family
