The Bumps (& scrapes) on the Journey to Wellness
*this post was inspired by a post from the blog that introduced me to the "blogging world" and brought me this far *
A couple of nights ago I was swimming.
This was the night I decided I would really go for it and make a new record... and I did.
I swam 49 laps in 49 minutes. I was ECSTATIC!
I walked out of the pool feeling preeety cool:
But then tragedy struck. SLIP! Woop! BAM!!
I slipped and fell:
The men in the pool with me were worried. I waved it off and said it was just a scrape... but that didn't stop me from complaining like a baby by the time I reached the showers:
"hisss~ Aaaah.. dam***, sh**, you freaken klutz!"
My earlier high quickly diminished and sadness swept in:
But after a shower and a few minutes of complaining I told myself to stop acting like a baby.
So I put some ointment that I found in my first aid kit:
I brushed my hair and my teeth:
I put on my lucky socks:
Laughed it off and told myself this is just one small price to pay for getting healthy and well.
I put a smile on my face (and popped an advil LOL) and went to "town" for some soup and some company!:
I can do it!! You can too!
