Writing 101 Day #7: Give and Take

Rise and shine! It’s a lovely day. The sun is even out today. Yay! A nice run in the woods sounds good. Try that new trail.  In a bit.

Stumble from bed to the kitchen table. Turn on computer. Check Facebook.

– Good morning, how are you?

–Good, sleepy.

Yawn. Eyes blurry. Brush away the sleep.

-Did you have a restful night’s sleep?


-And how are you feeling about your body today?

Eyes snap open. Back straight.

–Well, that’s a bit personal, don’t you think?

-Do you feel good about it? You should.


-That’s the most important rule to remember. Love your body.

–Right, ok. I’ll keep that in mind.

-Really, check out this inspirational video! She used to be a model and now she looks like this. Best before and after pictures ever, right? She is happier looking like this.

–Wow! That was inspirational. Thank you for sharing.

-Like that? Look at this too! 40 promises every woman should make to her body. Good, right? Especially #29, stop looking for validation or cues in the pages of magazines, or on movie or television screens.

-A smoothie? How about an organic, vegan, super green smoothie like this one here?

–No, that looks gross, thanks.

-Maybe an alternate to green smoothies?

–I’ll stick to banana mango.

Check the news really fast. See what is happening in the world. More shootings in the US.

-Banana?! First look at this list of 10 foods women should never eat. Might want to think again.

–Erm…no thank you. I like bananas.

-Perhaps this list? 13 foods people think are healthy but actually are terrible for you.

–Really, I just want my smoothie.

Into the kitchen. Blender, fruit, yogurt. All set for breakfast.

Beep. Another message from Mum.

-Oh hey, you’re back. Look what I found while you were gone. 10 superfoods you should be eating weekly. Oh! And 41 powerhouse fruits and vegetables you should eat regularly.
