Slouching through life...

I am a sloucher.

There. I said it.  I am not proud of it.  Not proud at all. In fact, I am horribly embarrassed at how I'm slouching through life, looking frumpy and old and hunched over.  Ugh.  Double ugh.

On Wednesday, Ragnar sent out a link to the course photos.  I found our team's pictures and moments later wanted to delete every single one that had me in it.  I looked terrible.  The running shirt that I thought was cute looked shiny and showed off every last bulge.  I was all hunched over and....blech.  All the other runners on our team look tough.  I just looked pathetic.  Even thinking of them makes me want to crawl in a hole. 

So I have a new goal.  I'm not going to slouch anymore.  I think I'll put signs everywhere (my car, my mirror, my wall, my microwave) to remind myself.  I notice myself doing it everywhere.  So if you know me in real life and you see me slouching, slap me.  Eventually I'll learn.

I love the new look of your blog, it's fabulous!

I am a sloucher too. I think it stems from my desire to not be seen, if I am shrinking away, people won't notice me as much...right?

PS, can you share the link to the photos? I would love to see the pictures of you and my cousins.

It was seriously one of my NY's resolutions to stand up taller. I am still working on it...it is my body' instant habit but I feel so much more lithe if I'm standing up straight!

And I agree: you should share the link if you can!
