Being Fit Is Always In Style

“Each morning, after I brush my teeth, wash my face and shake off the first deep layer of sleep, I lie down on the floor beside my bed and begin my first exercise. It is a simple bust-firming routine which consists of lifting five-pound weights from a spread-eagle arm position to a point directly above my head. I do this 15 times, slowly. I repeat the exercise another 15 times from a position with my arms above my head. Then, with my arms at a 45-degree angle from the floor, I move my waits in circles until I’m tired. I don’t count rhythmically like the exercise on the radio: I couldn’t stand exercise if I had to feel regimented about it.”  – Marilyn Monroe,   How I Stay in Shape, Pages 122-123  from the September 1952 issue of Pageant
