day at my school.
I must admit, that I truly enjoyed
my pink streaked hair
black nail polish
It was fun!!!!!
The kids got a kick out of it too.
I had a student come up to me and say,
"What happened to you?"
My comment was,
"What, this I what I look like on the weekend."
She replied with a horrified look
crossing her chest in the sign of the cross,
"Heaven help your soul."
The above picture reminded me of something
that happened earlier this month.
At the beginning of September
there was a Health Fair at my school
for all the employees.
The kind of health fair where they
check your BMI
do a few blood tests
administer flu shots.
They always hold our health fair in the library.
Pretty close quarters for
As I was analyzed by a nurse
with a line of my colleagues waiting behind me
I was told the following,
your BMI is way to high
you are 31
and your body is as strong as it ever will be
YOU HAVE TO WORK OUT
(basically, its all down hill from here, so its now or never!!!!)
I glanced around to see who heard
my great assessment
and grabbed a chocolate donut
--- Just Kidding---
I didn't grab a chocolate donut
I felt like I wanted to puke
Seeing the picture above reminded me of this.
Now the weather is not so stinkin' hot
I am ready to get out
get my body stronger
and lose the obscene spare tire around my middle
it's true I HATE getting my picture taken
its true I have very bad body image issues
but its also true that i need to start taking care of myself.
I am not getting any younger.
I want to be a rock star and I need to get in shape
--guess I could have said all that in one sentence.
P.S. A big hug for the lady at church who told me I looked beautiful
Don't ya just love compliments???
