I missed putting up a post yesterday. I was too busy doing this.
It looks a lot cuter in person. Plus, I love waking up and not worrying if I have bed head.
Yesterday's topic for the August Healthy Living /Fitness Blogger Writing Challenge was about our worst injuries. At first, I thought I've been so lucky to not have had any major injuries.
While that is true, I did experience a few years when I had shin splints so bad that I could run. It could have been lots worse, it was so frustrating to think that I might never run again. Slowly, but surely, I was able to work my way back into it. Yay!
Today's topic is about body image and the media. I haven't really given this much thought. I like having role models that are skinny, but I think there is too much emphasis, at times, on the super-skinny. I do wish there was more emphasis on FIT and STRONG and HEALTHY - with less emphasis on WEIGHT.
