Is this as good as it gets?🤔
Great class today with former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders choreographer Stephanie Dibiase-Wheat & Crunch Instructors! Got lots of ideas for my Zumba class! It’s fun to have fun! #danceislife #dancingasfastasican #fitnessmotivation #dance #choreography #dancefitness #danceclass #crunchgym #waco #zumba #zumbafitness

I was walking up the stairs and loved the way the antler chandelier gave off a prism-type effect on the walls. It was stunning! But of course, when I tried to take a picture it just looked dull. So I turned the camera-thingy around to face me, and I was shocked! Although I’ve been sick all week, that particular lighting looked pretty good, and girl, you gotta take advantage of a good selfie when you see one, right?
We’ve had the opportunity and privilege to host a lot of military veterans at our ranch. (Stay with me here…I’m getting to the super selfie tips in a minute). I’m big on offering snacks – nuts, cheese, meats, veggies, etc.. – coffee, tea, wine, depending on who’s visiting and the time of day. I’ll never forget one soldier saying, “Never miss an opportunity to refuel or reload” to me when I presented a tray of appetizers.
So, the moral of the story here is….Never miss an opportunity for a good selfie. Seriously, I don’t know how I pulled this off. Might not seem like a big deal to you, but I have wrinkles that somehow missed their debut in this pic and I swear, there is no filter. But here’s what I did to make it seem not-so-bad-without-a-filter, and at my age, that’s a big deal:
1. Face the light
2. Hold the camera/phone high
3. Suck it up buttercup. (Your tummy)
4. Turn your hips one way and you’re shoulders the other. Trust me, this works
5. Lift your head – ok, this might only apply to those of us over 50 who have extra neck skin. Figure out what your best angle/side is.
6. Think of the camera/phone as your lover – I swear, this works!
I hope this helps you take your next selfie better, or at least give you a good laugh. 😂
