these used to be a snap - a few years of not doing them makes it a little more difficult to do. If you're doing them now, don't stop - if you're not doing them - start exercising for your health! :-) A few every day helps your muscles get stronger.
I never buy fashion or women's magazines because it promotes this kind of shackling of women. We are not what we wear or put on our faces or into our stomachs. Why do we do this to ourselves, to our self-image and confidence, and self-esteem? Rise above.
