Recapturing Beauty Day 5

The Challenge:
Exercise for fun- choose a form of exercise that you enjoy.
A form you wouldn't normally choose because it calls attention to your body.

WHY: Exercise is necessary for health, but we have turned it into a duty, obligation and punishment- something we do to "make up" for the food we eat. Women are bombarded with media messages that tell us we can't run, swim, do yoga or any number of things unless we have the "perfect" body. We must stop waiting to achieve perfection and live our lives to the fullest- taking risks, trying new things and utilizing the unlimited potential of our bodies. To be able to move is a precious gift.
