"Me Right Now" Challenge

Let's face it, most of us (yes me) try to post only pics of ourselves that we feel look decent. In fact, most of them are usually pictures that we are freshly showered (not making any promises), make-up applied, hair done, cute outfit, etc. But really, that's not me on a daily basis.

I thought it'd be fun to do a "Me, Right Now" Challenge. Let's embrace who we are when we aren't all done up. Let's show ourselves right now, at this very moment. You may be reading this late at night, early in the morning, or mid-afternoon. It doesn't matter when it is, just do it now, whatever time it may be.

So here I am, about to finish up my blogging, still a little sweaty from my run, sportin' what's left of some minimal make-up that was applied at 5:30 a.m. this morning, and in desperate need of a shower.


See, I'm being extra honest. I didn't even wipe off the water marks on my mirror! Just ignore them (like I do)!

So, will you take the challenge? Take a pic of yourself right now, just as you are, while reading this blog. Now, some of you might be looking your best, which is okay too. Post it anyway because we wanna see you, right now!

Leave a comment to let us know if you did it so we can all go and check it out! Come on, I dare ya!

***Edited to include: I'm trying Mr. Linky for the first time. I'm not sure if it is installed correctly but try to click it and add a link to your site if you decide to take the challenge. If it doesn't work, you can just leave the comment to direct us. Thanks!

Angela said...

I'll do it when I get home today! But I did post what I considered to be a not-so-flattering picture of myself last week. I even captioned it "me and my greasy self"!

Carolyn said...

GAH how do you always look sooooooo pretty??!! Its nauseating, really. I look like death runneth over when I get done running. ;)

Megan said...

Girl....if I look half as good as you do after running I would put a picture of myself. But I don't. So I won't. :-) And my battery is dead. O yeah and I don't run.

Kristy said...

I'm playing too!! Except I just got home from work, and you still look better than me. No Fair.

Lianna Knight said...

Okay...I posted my RIGHT NOW pic! Great idea :) And WAY too much fun!

Kristen said...

I don't think this post is fair...you still look adorable, even after a run. You should see this sweaty mess after a run - yikes! I'll post a pic in a jiffy!

Cindy said...

All right, I did it and posted to Mr. Linky. I'm not sure this fair though, because you look great!

Lane said...

Oh my, you look so cute!! I wish I looked like that after a run! I look like doo doo (that's a nice way of saying it!) after I work out!
Very cute idea!

Megan said...

Ok, Ok, I'm not good with peer pressure and I gave into it. I posted a picture of myself, because you made me feel all prideful for not doing so! :-)

Carolina Girl said...

This is random, but have you always been a runner? I'd love to start - any advice?

I'll post a pic tonight when I get home from the gym. That should be a doozy! and PS you look awesome!

Trina said...

I took your challenge! I am here via Kristen's blog :)

to answer the question above....I've been running consistently for about 12 years now. I ran track a year or two in high school but never ran outside of practice or meets. But then my senior year, I didn't run track and just ran on my own time. I loved it so much more that way. I really got into running in college and have been doing it ever since.
My advice....don't push yourself to run so much that you start to dread it or hate it. Run when you can, and it is okay to take walk breaks when you need to. And try to run outside rather than a treadmill, the scenery is much better! Also, in my opinion, music is a must!

Carolina Girl said...

Thanks girl! I'm gonna start trying it out...baby steps :) I think it'll be a great way to burn some calories.

Lindsay said...

I ran last night and my legs are killing me! I walk a lot but I don't run so I guess that tells me I need to more huh??? ok i'm at work so i will take a picture when I get home and post it! :)
