An online blogger friend TJ is doing an amazing project, in which she takes a picture of herself everyday and posts it. It's not about diet, or exercise, or to hear criticism or praise. It's about looking at yourself every day until you like what you see -- either through change or acceptance*.
Here's a link to her latest post regarding this: http://bit.ly/aA1qJN
I think it's a fabulous idea, and I'm joining in! Therefore, here's my Day 1:
Just home from work (yay Jeans day!)
Some amusing notes on this pic:
1. I had to unbury that mirror from behind my dresser, where it was covered with a blanket, and then wash it 3 times with windex to get all the dust off of it. That's how much I hate looking in the mirror.
2. Look! laundry baskets! Yes, they are almost always in my room, and almost always filled with clean laundry that needs folded and put away.
3. I had to borrow a floor lamp from downstairs for more lighting, apparently my room is a cave. Which is how I like it.
3. My expression isn't really smiling-smiling, because I'm trying not to laugh. My daughter was in the bath across the hall, and I could hear her humming and singing the whole time I was trying to setup the mirror. I asked her after what she was singing, she said: "oh, it's a translation of one of the Swedish songs I like." (Which is Dota, by Basshunter) Understand she will NEVER sing in public where she knows someone can hear her. She's so cute.
Oh and I'd take a FULL body pic, if I had a full-body mirror. This is all I gots.
