Have you guys been watching the Olympics? I've been following swimming and gymnastics and boy, watching their form makes me want to do sit-ups and start eating healthy everyday - ha!
Read: Modcloth's feature about 7 inspiring women Olympians from past decades.

So much grace and power and she makes it look so easy.
And just because I miss watching these two, a behind the scenes photo of American gymnasts Nastia Liukin and Shawn Johnson from the 2008 Beijing Olympics. (Photo via)
