What Did We Learn This Month? 

 SELF: May 2013

SELF Cover Star: Kelly Osbourne

I think Kelly looks fantastic and am very happy that she is seeking to be a healthy role model to young girls rather than being just another skinny famous person. But I don’t know—there is something a little strange to me that as a teen she felt harassed by the media for talking how her looks and then she gets a talk show where she makes fun of people for the way they dress. (E’s Fashion Police)

Anyone else feel this way?

Or am I over analyzing this one? (It wouldn’t be the first time!)

Really love Kelly’s bathing suit on the cover by the way. (OMG it is from Betsey Johnson—no wonder I love it so much!)

So What Else is in the May SELF?

“Drop 10 Workout”

Trainers Karena Dawn and Katrina Hodgson of Tone it Up are back at it with a whole new workout this month that you can tear out and take to the gym.

“Dying to Try it—Pull-Ups”

Trainer Kiley Schoenfelder (http://kfitnyc.com/) shows women how to do a real pull-up. (It’s not that scary, people!)

By the way, Kiley is a Type 1 Diabetes athlete! How incredible is that? Go Kiley! (SELF editors—you must do a story about her!)

Pull Ups 001

“5 Minute Abs”

SELF asked exercise physiologist Michelle Olson her favorite quick abs moves. They ask and ye shall receive.

“How Did I Ever Bike Without This?”

SELF knows how to make this Fit Chick happy—put in some bike gear! (So who is going to get me the Stella Mccartney-designed Adidas jacket?)

“SELF: 2013 Healthy Beauty Awards”

I love beauty stories and here we get the best of the best in lotions and potions as decided by SELF readers.

The Rest of the Best of the March SELF:

  • “How Bad Is It to Have a Drink Before You Work Out?” I was ready to make fun of this article when two (count ‘em two) of my friends told me they have worked out “tipsy” before. So apparently this is a real thing that happens. (Gawd—I am so out of it!)
  • “Why Didn’t I Step In?” Here we get a very interesting and thought-provoking essay from Sushma Subramanian whose friend died of liver failure at 26. Holy sh*t!!

Overall Grade:

B+ It was a great issue but I wish they not make the copy so young sounding. It comes off a little teenager-ish at times.

Have you read the June SELF yet? What do you think of Kelly Osbourne? One a scale of 1-10, how cute  is her bathing suit?
