So anyway, back to my body. I was inspecting myself in the mirror last night, and actually *gasp* liked what was staring back at me. I don't think I'll be posting bikini pics up on Facebook any time soon, but here we have it, readers—things I love about my body:
1. My shape. I've always had a hard time putting my body into a category. I'm not pear-shape or apple, or any other fruit. And I'm not long and lean, or even petite really. One time Liza suggested that I might be square-shaped, to which I decided once and for all I'm going to stop trying to figure out where exactly I fit in. I'm Ellen-shape, and the thing I love the most about that is my proportions—I'm pretty even all over. I'm not top or bottom-heavy or too soft or muscular in any one area. And I've got subtle curves in just the right places. I can honestly say I love my shape.
2. My feet. They're small, but not freakishly so, and I have pretty, long toes. (Apparently that means I'm going to be rich one day or something?) And when my toenails are perfectly polished, I feel confident I could have a successful career as a foot model. Right, need to look into that!
3. My legs. When I was younger, I used to hate how muscular my legs were, but now I've come to appreciate them—I love feeling strong. I even caught myself checking them out in the gym mirrors the other day when I was doing lunges. Daaamn, girrrl! Oh and I can't even tell you how many compliments I've received on my sculpted calves—they do look killer when I'm wearing heels!
4. My booty. My derriere has been a work in progress over the years, and I must say I am quite proud of it. (Walking lunges work, y'all!) I'm not packing too much back, but I've got just enough to nicely fill out my jeans.
Whew, I did it! It does feel nice bragging on myself every once in a while. I highly recommend it. Here's your chance: What do you love about your body?
