Fitness Friday: Love Your Body edition

Time for Fitness Friday (graciously hosted by Brenda at The Family Revised)! This week we're supposed to share one thing we really like about our bodies. I thought about this for a while today, and my answer is...*dundundun* back. Wierd, right? But I like the curve of my back. I think there's something uniquely feminine about a gracefully curved back. I'm reminded of a scene from one of my favorite movies: As Good As It Gets, where the artist is re-inspired by seeing Helen Hunt's back as she's getting ready to bathe. 

I also like my feet, but I'm a sock girl so nobody ever sees them. As Robert Jordan would put it in his Wheel of Time series, I have a "well-turned ankle". Don't ask me what that means.

To summarize my "fitness" week...hmm...not so great. Not terrible, but hardly stellar. I only made it to the gym once. I'm not entirely sure why, which makes it even worse. It probably has something to do with why I haven't blogged all week: my intense concentration on a submission for RPG Superstar 2009. (By the way, wish me luck! I'm submitting my entry tonight.)

Have a wonderful weekend! I'll be back on Monday with some fun pictures and a summary of my anniversary out on the town.


  1. So I'm hearing everyone say that they love the uniquely feminine things about themselves...interesting as the world tries to make everyone look unisex!

    You made it to the gym more often than I did! :)

  2. And you made it to the gym more often than me as well!! UNIQUELY FEMININE....I need to think like that more often and like the things that are unique to us women only. My mind hasn't ever gone there.

    Have a great week and good luck!

  3. I've never seen the curve of my back. But it could be worth photographing with the self-timer, just to see.

    Can't wait to hear about your anniversary.

  4. The curve of the back indeed is uniquely feminine. I love how many of us are embracing our femininity more - it is beautiful.

  5. Socks are evil! Let those cute little feet free! ;)

    I can't remember if you've ever met Karen's mom but when I stayed with her for that week she wore capris one day and I thought, "wow she has great ankles!"
    Although I thought it was a weird thought at the time. :)

  6. Yes the feminine things are to be treasured for sure! I never thought about my back. Hmm..

    Thanks for coming out of hiding to post. :0)
