Thanks to Twitter I have learned about the “Exposed” movement…
A movement in which people (men and women) photograph themselves. Post the photos on their blogs. And comment away, on their photos, to try to share who they really are. All with a healthy focus on body image.
I have decided to Expose myself for my first Thursday blog of 2010. Thursday is the day I dedicate to posting my thoughts – about life, the universe and everything. And today, I post some thoughts about myself. And my reasons for getting involved in triathlon and being fit. As comments on my photo.
I asked DH to take this photo as my 2010 “Before Triathlon Season” shot. It will be interesting to see what my “Post Triathlon Season” shot looks like in September!
And the measurements I care about and plan to track monthly:
Ankle: (left) 21.0; (right) 22.0
Two inches above ankle: (left) 25.7; (right) 26.7
Calf (widest point): (left) 37.5; (right) 38.5
Medial quad (circumference just above knee when flexed): (left) 40.5; (right) 40.5
(Note: I also have some other measurements which I will post once I get my total body checkup in a few weeks… Things like % body fat, % hydration, stress response, and creatine level – the only amino I had a minor variance from normal with last year. I suspect I will post those on a normal Monday post…)
