Oh, Marilyn! Or… A Mini New Year’s Resolution

I like regular days that turn special more than I like official holidays. I like truck stop coffee more than fancy la-la lattes. And I like chipping away at being the best me possible more than setting sweeping resolutions on New Year’s Eve.

However, I’m making a tiny exception this year, inspired by this photo of Marilyn Monroe.

I, Melissa “Melicious” Joulwan, hereby resolve in 2010 to summon the glamorous spirit of Marilyn Monroe during my heavy lifting workouts at the craptastic gym. I will engage my core. I will hold my head high. And I will dig my heels into the floor while pretending to be en pointe to display my elegant calf muscles.
