Yes it is luck of the draw I suppose but I can’t help but be intrigued that Christie Brinkley gets the 8 foot leg arrangement and I get the hairy stumps. So I have investigated how to get legs like Christies. Here she shares her secrets. There is a slight discrepancy between her lifestyle and my own of course.
This is how she clenches her way through the day.
Christie: “I’ll dry my hair as though I’m sitting on a chair, even though there’s no chair there,” said Christie to Shape magazine.
Alison : I’ll dry my hair lying in my bed with a coffee in one hand, the hairdryer in the other with my eyes shut putting off the inevitable vertical raising of the imperial body said Alison to anyone who’d listen.
Christie: “When I’m brushing my teeth, I’m bending my leg behind me or I’m lifting my leg and holding it in that position so I’m squeezing my butt in.”
Alison :When I’m brushing my teeth I am trying not to burst into tears as I see the pug faced harridan that squints back at me in the mirror.
Christine tries to do 100 push ups every day and does yoga, surfs, kayaks and runs on the beach.
Me? Push ups? Bugger off.
Her advice to anyone looking to get a supermodel figure like hers is to keep exercise varied.
“I think variety is the spice of sticking with an exercise routine, whether it’s getting a dance tape one day, or getting a tape with those stretchy things to work with resistance on a different day.”
“Arm yourself with a few different things. Ask your friends to go jogging or on a long walk. Sign up for a dance class. I really think that mixing it up it keeps it fun. And that’s really the only way that you can stick with it.”So with summer looming and the low slung black jogger not really the look I want to follow I decided to take her advice and at closing time, just after we got the last round in I asked Dynamite, my pal to go jogging. Her reaction?
She wet herself laughing. Well you would.
