Admit it’s true. When I wear leggings, I dream about my legs being as long as Betty Grable’s and as thin as Twiggy’s. Just to complement this post with pictures, as I like to do, here are three of my all time favorite models: Betty Grable, Twiggy, and Hyoni Kang.
No, but this blog post is not to whine about how unshapely I have become since school started. As model-like as you look while catwalking in your bedroom or posing with a blowdryer in front of your bathroom mirror, we could take a more realistic step to looking like a model. Thus, I would like to introduce to all you fashionistas: fitness.
That’s right, this means that after you finish reading this blog post, I would like you to get up and go work out. ;D
Here’s my typical workout routine for the day, in addition to the names of the songs that I normally play on my iPod while doing that exercise. Feel free to share your workout routine in a comment below, or tell me of any additions I can make to what I gave so far.
