When Joshilyn first suggested we gear up for a fashion challenge, I have to admit—I felt rather smug. “This will be easy for me,” I thought. “I like to shop. I like clothes. I’m relatively happy with my body, and I’ve seen nearly every episode of [...]
Yesterday I was at the gym. I realize that starting every post like that makes it sound like I spend every day at the gym. I don’t. But Wednesday is my day to go to the gym and my night to post, so let’s enjoy the illusion, shall we?
