Accept No Limits.

Hello people of all ages,
.

I had a birthday recently and had to face the unwelcome thought that I am getting to be significantly aged.
.

That brings with it many stereotypes which are held by other people.
It covers stuff like expecting to see excessively wrinkled decrepit looking people, who cannot function without all kinds of walking aids, home helps, doctor’s visits and significant medication.
.

It definitely does not pay to buy into this idea that life is over and there is nothing ahead except felt slippers, faulty parts and Horlicks before bed.

.

We can be who and what we wish to be.

We are all original one-offs.

And some of us start very early too.

It is up to us really.

.

Once again there is a very interesting award from the Guinness Book Of Records.

This one is for ‘The Oldest Female Competitive Body Builder’.

.

This award winner is a very beautiful looking lady called Ernestine Shepherd.

She lives with her husband of 54 years, Colin.

They live together in Baltimore, in the USA.

.

Ernestine is an amazing 74 years old.

.

She does regular training with a Mr. Shamburger, who was an American bodybuilding gold medal winner and a former  Mr Universe.

He helps her train and tone her formidable 6-pack to perfection.

.

Ernestine has a tight schedule every day.

She makes a point of always arising at 3am, in order to spend time in thought and reading.

She then runs about 10 miles before she has lunch.

The rest of the day is then filled with training and her other work as a personal fitness trainer.

.

Her husband is immensely impressed with how lovely she looks and obviously enjoys having such a total ‘hottie’ for his wife.

He supports her efforts by cooking for her and doing various chores.

.

She keeps to a good plain diet and drinks 3 glasses of egg white daily.

This is not a lady who indulges a taste for junk foods or sugar.

She is in total control of hers life and has made herself into a fine example of fitness, one for other people to be encouraged by.

.

Ernestine also finds time to teach a fitness class at a church and she does some modelling work too, as well as promoting the idea that no matter how late you leave it there is no reason that you cannot become super-fit.

.

Ernestine.

She is not the only one though, get a look at some other bodybuilders who are taking part in a bodybuilding competition in Japan…one that is only for the over-70 year-olds.
.
I am sorry about the completely juvenile and irritating commentary that accompanies it. I thought the eventual winner was quite a stunner myself.
.

.
Wow, it makes me feel good to see what is possible if you just regard age as a number and do as you please with life.
.
I really would like a six-pack too….and now I know where to get one from!
.
Have yourself a muscly day.
J,x.

I am not drinking yukky egg whites though, or delibarately getting up at 3am unless I have to….it happens to me enough times anyway!
