Vanitas Vanitas, All is Vanitas

We watched Atonement last night. I covet all of Keira Knightly's clothes in this film. It gave me a good kick to try to lose a few pounds for the summer. Just so I don't have to worry about what clothes work depending on 'muffin tops' and the like. I don't think I will need to do anything drastic to lose it. Just lay off the chocolate and walk Gretchy more.

I also have this slightly strange workout routine, just to sicken Shane, who pays gym membership. I put on some loud music and set the timer to 10 minutes and run about the house like a crazy woman till the 10 mins are up. And it works! My muscles ache the next day!! You just gotta keep moving, every muscle and no rest.

I listed this little clip-orama yesterday, you like her? The lime green part is made with super chunky lamps wool and the red part is high quality 100% crochet cotton. yum yum.

This is my incentive photo for my summer bod. Alas I feel I will always be trying to work my way back to this image. I wish I knew that then, I could have enjoyed myself a bit more. It was taken in Croatia the summer Shane proposed. Young love.

Knightley looks ghastly. She has no breasts, no derriere, no necessary body fat (essential for hormonal function). Consider that the camera adds 10 lbs, and have another look at her. In actuality she will looks even thinner and more cadaverous than this picture. This woman has a disease, and she is not to be envied for it.

You're a beautiful young woman just as you are.

Please don't propagate the idea of self-abuse, for you or any woman.

for what it is worth.
