day 144: shadows, tone, and curves.

    Newer Older

    i realized today that if i'm to come home mentally exhausted every day, it just can't be an excuse to NOT exercise. i can't NOT exercise every day. it used to be one or two days a week, usually monday and friday, but i have a feeling that, in light of recent events, it will be increasingly frequent. and so this is to remind myself that i need exercise as stress relief and confidence maintenance techniques.

    Also,
    you really need to watch this.
    It might make you cry, it might make you laugh, but if nothing else, it WILL make you smile. Thanks Jordy!
    OH yeah, and it really might have pushed me over the edge to do a strangers project

      what an inspired shot, love the position
      it is easy to slip out of routine, but you are right, the rewards are so worth the work
      and commitment, as with most things.
      gorgeous shot

      I've been so lazy latly when it comes to exercising last year I was on a role exercising everyday and now it's more like 2 or 3 days a week. So don't feel bad. I love your pose ... you look stunning and I don't think it would really make a difference how often you worked out cause you look hott! :) Hope your having a great week! <3

      This is so beautifully posted, captured and presented. And to top it off, it's inspiring me to follow-up on some those little voices that have been whispering in my own brain (the ones that have been stiffled by the temptation of the coach for far too long).
