Hello everyone and welcome to my new personal blog. Here, you will find entries about the things that I want to write about. It’ll be funny and witty and sometimes insightful. But right now, I just want to talk about my body image.
I posed a question to my partner earlier today: “Do you think the Olympics makes people go to the gym more?”
Response: “No. It probably makes them sit and watch more television. That’s what it’s doing to me.”
Me: “Well, it motivates the heck out of me. Those Olympians sure do work out a lot.”
See – I told you this blog would be insightful…
Yes, Danielle, they do work out a lot. They also get paid to work out. A lot. You… not so much.
Well I think it’s a good reaction to have. If I have to watch beautiful bodies parading around being the very best in what they do, I could at least try harder to do what I do better. So I am running more and lifting more weight. Surely in a few months, I too will be on television. I’ll let you know when to tune in.
