I am thinking of starting up my Digging for Truffles food blog again. Whenever I do it inspires me to eat well and record my food habits, something I really ought to work harder on as there have been rather a lot of chocolate bars passing my lips recently! Of course, my body doesn’t crave or desire chocolate bars that often – I just eat them because somewhere deep down I feel I ought to! I also need to started using the Wii fit and exercising, so it is time for some real change to occur!
Other than food thoughts, however, I have been thinking about women, and our hips. My hips have always been a bit straight and boring, and I have this habit of assessing other women’s wonderful snake hips with utter jealousy.
How do their hips wiggle in just the right way? I have no natural swing to my hips, no rhythm – they just twitch occasionally and that is about it. How I long for svelte curvy hips swinging seductively from side to side. I have heard that practise can make perfect, but so far my hip swinging efforts have been failing terribly!
It doesn’t help that I am a straight figure, with few of those womanly wiles that make our bodies quite so beautiful, no matter what size they are.
The most wonderful hips have to belong to the stunningly curvy Christina Hendricks, and the equally brilliant Kate Winslet. Something to aspire to!
