I’m hot. (And a challenge)
This is not something I talk about here much. But did you know I’m hot? I dress well, sometimes wear make up (look equally good without), and I make sweatpants look like a deliberate choice.
I think about body image a lot. I spend my day surrounded by teenage girls and well that’s what happens. We talk about things. I didn’t really know about body image until high school. You see my mother doesn’t wear makeup and never ever body shamed. It just wasn’t a thing.
Now, I’m 28 and a sort of role model for girls I teach so I feel as though I should do/say something. Today I read this (trigger warning: eating disorders) I thought about how I need to be more visible about positive body image. But also, I don’t.
Because I promote this by just being me. I am supporting my girls by not body shaming, dieting, or worrying over food. I am promoting healthy.
So here is my ridiculous challenge. For the month of February I will be taking a selfie a day. And I will post the first one I take. Because here’s the thing: I’m, just like J.Lo, real.* I am hoping you will join me. Pick the social media platform of your choice, I think I’m going with instagram, and let me know. I have a lot of hot readers and I want to see you.
I know this is silly but you know what? It’s the dead of winter and I need some silly. So shut up and duck face.
