Random thoughts about body image

I was watching “What Not To Wear”, a show that takes a sans-style chic, goes thru her closet and throws her favorite clothing into the trash because she agreed to get made over with a $5K wardrobe. Ok, I admit it, I would love to do that, I think. They would probably tell me that I wear too much black. I need to wear more things that are fitted and not loose and flowy….I get it.

Personally, I think if you have developed your own personal style, why should you change it to fit someone else’s definition of style. (Unless you clearly don’t have any, like the chicks they choose for this program)
So I love my leggings and boots and loose flowy tops. I’ll probably not change my fashion style…until some day, one day, I lose about 20 pounds, and I can wear the cute little fitted tees and dresses:) ala Carrie Bradshaw.

Which brings me to another story:
My friend and I were at Barnes and Noble before Christmas and we both bought a food journal and a bargain book, The Abs Diet. We planned on being accountable to each other, to be each other’s support and encouragement to lose weight. I have yet to start. I need a kick start!

I’ve been to the gym twice. I have the Isagenix program that my husband and I get automatic monthly shipments. I need to cleanse, detox. I just can’t get started. My resolution: Just show up. Just do it. Easier said than done. I wish I enjoyed running. I wish I had better workout shoes and cute yoga outfits. I wish I could get rid of the’tire’. I wish I had a good writing pen. (really.) I miss that hard sweat, the 2nd -day-after-a-good -work -out muscle pain.

Things I’m doing Tomorrow:
I’ll take a full body picture of myself http://fittipdaily.wordpress.com/2008/02/06/picture-your-weight-loss/ and post where I can’t miss it!

Going to Lainey’s Zumba class for a good hard sweat.

Logging my caloric intake.

Fish and Veggies.

Take down my Christmas decorations.
