Image

As I log into my Facebook account, I let out an envious sigh as another one of my distant friends has posted a Transformation picture. For those who are unaware, this is not some sort of photoshopped car-robot ‘Transformers’ image. This is actually a collage of a ‘Before & After’ picture which may or may not include the many touch-ups of Photoshop. Podgy, pimply girls magically convert into stunning swan-like women and grouchy, flabby boys turn into sexy, muscular men. Continue reading “A Fitness Foot Forward”

The sky is like…

The sky is like a monochromatic contemporary painting, drawing me in with its illusion of depth, pulling me up. -John Green, Paper Towns
