This is a must watch…

SO INSPIRATIONAL!

She said something towards the end that really resonates with me:

Not everyone wants to be a body builder not everyone wants to be a runner but find what you like to do and — I say to my senior ladies and the men — don’t forget age is nothing but a number and we can get fit.

It reminded of my old post find your basketball. Once I stopped forcing myself to do what I thought I needed to do to exercise I actually ended up exercising and exercising for years consistently.

Funny how that worked.

Food Journal

  • 5:45 a.m. half banana on the way to the gym
  • 7 a.m. recovery shake
  • 9:15 a.m. Scramble with 2 eggs, leftover baked potato, cubed ham and bell pepper with a drizzle of sriracha
  • 10:30 Super duper hungry for some reason.  Dipped into my beloved chocolate coconut chips.
  • 12:45 Taco salad with chicken, cheese, salsa, avocado and a side of quinoa chips
  • Dinner was a fun night of nachos and leftovers. I had some chocolate with the kids too.

Activity Journal

  • 6 a.m. Workout: Bench Press Challenge Max Effort at 58lbs – I did 58 reps
    Modified “Grace” — 30 Clean & Jerks at 83lbs — I did it in 4:25

Misc. 

  • Water could have been better
  • Supplements taken

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    For those of us who have already gotten there, yes, it’s only a number as my training tells me. Some clients I work with listened, most don’t or think they can’t, so sad! What you do in your 20s-50s will come back to hail or haunt you in you 60s-90s.
    Excellent video:)
