I got a smile reading today's Feature Article about how to love your body - because I remember when i realized that Fitness Magazine had used the same body on their cover for months and just airbrushed a different head on top. The body was long-limbed with absolutely no curves. Whoever was in charge of the art department never swapped out the belly ring either. The boy cut bikini bottoms were always the same style filled in with a different color or texture. Kinda made me disregard all the information inside - what with the fake presentation and all.
I still love magazines - even fitness ones - but I never buy them unless I think they've switched out the body. It doesn't even have to look like a familiar body - not curvy or ethnic. Just different. Then I feel like there might be something new to read inside.
How will I love my body today? I will take it off to the gym this morning for a weight session. I love it that he always has a surprise for me - a new exercise - something I've never done before. Some I can do without supervision ... some I need a spotter for. All of them leave me feeling stretched and wonderful at the same time. Love me a session at the gym.
After that I'm going to go visit my mother.
And sometime today there will be chocolate.
Day to you all
