A 5'3 Perspective

A Gold Star from Anonymous

I work on the third floor of an office tower and every morning I face the elevator versus stairs dilemma. I know I should take the stairs because it is only a few floors, but I feel lazy in the morning and the elevator is just so much easier. For the past week I have been forcing myself to take the stairs, mostly to avoid dirty looks in the elevator, but also for a little extra exercise. Monday is always the toughest; I am tired and lazier than any other day of the week. This morning I convinced myself I could do it and thank goodness I did! This is what I saw written on the stairs! 

I must admit I felt great! I have no idea who wrote this positive message, but it was the gold star I needed! I am doing something good for myself and my body and that is great! It was such a wonderful start to my day and set the tone for a great week.

To whoever wrote that little piece of encouragement, thank you, you made my day and I won’t be taking the elevators ever again!

The Winter Tan

This year I made a pact with myself that I would do everything I could (minus going to the tanning booths) to avoid matching the snow! A few weeks ago I bought the “Gradual Tan Everday Body Lotion” from St. Tropez.


I left the store excited to try my luck with this new self tanner, but after realizing that I need to shower and exfoliate before using I decided to put it aside and wait until the time was right. Unfortunately that time never came, the bottle is still sitting in my bathroom cabinet. So, here we go. I am going to try it out and document my results. I will post before, middle, and after pictures. It will be like going on vacation, without going anywhere… and you won’t be going, you’ll be watching me. Hmmm. Forget about that! Anyways. Cross your fingers and pray that I don’t turn orange!!!
