My goodness, I have become hypersensitive to looking at necks. Wassup with my focus? Everywhere I go, I see necks – turkey necks, floppy necks, mottled necks. Why is that the single source of my displeasure? For most of my life – as I can remember – I have focused on one body part until I have either done something about it or I’ve managed to move it off of the hotspot. This one seems to be keeping me way too focused.
Several years ago, I purchased a video of a woman demonstrating that if you regularly exercised your neck and face, we could all put the plastic surgeons out of work. This was a hilarious video of a woman leaning forward, pushing her chin as far up as she could, and holding it for a count of …. probably 15. I remember laughing my arse off while watching this surgically enhanced woman claiming that her tight face and neck were due to an exercise regimen I had never seen before nor since. Now I’m wondering.
When I do crunches – which is working the muscles in my abdominal area – I am forcing that muscle to tighten and grow stronger. I think. Would working my neck do the same? Are there muscles there which could be enhanced with a regular “crunch”? I’m not an anatomy person. I’m a writer, entrepreneur and historian. But I know that if I want to gather information, I do research. This one is worth looking into because it could – possibly – get my neck off the hotspot so that I could then focus on another body part that drives me nuts. So I’ve found that, according to e-how, you possibly can tighten your neck. And face. We can work on stealing money right out of the pockets of the surgeons. I will give it a try. Heck, its free.
If this works, my lips are next.
