Health and Body Image

1) If you could magically change one thing about your body, what would it be? 
My skin. I have yucky skin. I already have wrinkles and stretch marks (non pregnancy related, boo), and my arms have these funky red bumps on them. yuck.

2) What is your best physical feature?
 I would have to say my eyes. They're blue, with a little bit of green sometimes. And I got really blessed with long eyelashes. And whether I'm big or small, my eyes are always the same.

3) Do you weigh yourself daily? Hourly? Weekly? Bi-weekly? Never? 
I weigh in weekly. Because I am prone to throw tantrums if things don't go my way, I usually leave the torture to once a week.

4) Do you workout regularly? If so, how does if affect you from day to day? 
I run (slowly) three times a week, and I swim at least once a week. Next comes weight training. I have to get my butt in gear!

5) What is the healthiest thing you do for yourself on a regular basis? 
Sleep. I love sleep. I would sleep all day long if I could. But three small children are dependent on me all day. So for now, the sleep comes at night. And yes, my kids sleep through the night. Don't hate.

6) If you could look like a celebrity, who would you choose to look like? 
Drew Barrymore. Cause she's my husbands one "gimme".

7) What do you do to make yourself feel pretty/handsome?
It's amazing how much better I feel about myself on the days that I actually blow dry my hair. I know. What a concept.

8) What are you most attracted to in the opposite sex? 
Tall, dark, and handsome. With blue eyes of course.

9) Have you ever avoided situations because you didn't want people to see your body shape? 
Um. Always. I'm really good at avoiding most situations. It's one of my strengths. And I hate it. I wish I could walk in to any room or any situation and feel comfortable, but I don't.

10) How do you feel about your overall appearance? 
Um, embarrassed? Disappointed? I'm tired of being that girl that has "a pretty face". I want to be pretty inside and out. Face and all.

I love this post Turtle! I loved getting to know you better. You do have beautiful eyes, and why do I get the feeling you don't even weigh 200 lbs?? ;)

Thank you. And yes I weigh over 200lbs. And I'm only 5'4". I have a long way to go.

Lets see... I hate my stretch marks too (pregnancy and non pregnancy related), I weigh myself weekly, I workout a lot and run slowly, love sleep, and feel so much prettier when my hair is fixed (I love my hair but rarely find the time to fix it), and am attracted to tall, dark and handsome not yours though, my own. He has brown eyes like me! LOL Plus I'm 5'4" but no longer weigh over 200lbs... but I did. I think we have a lot in common. You do have beautiful eyes! It's nice to get to know you!

Gawgeous eyes woman!!

LOL @ Drew Barrymore!

I love sleeping too, but I've decided God doesn't want me to sleep more than 7 or so hours ;) But I do miss it! Maybe when the kids go to college-LOL

NO KIDDING! You have GORGEOUS eyes! Holy moly!

I wanted to send you a personal note to thank you for your kind words on my blog yesterday.

You indicated that you have some of your own hurdles to over come - and knowing that helped me out a ton. I guess it just helps to not feel so alone.

Anyway, thank you again for reading and commenting. I very much appreciate it.
