What a great day today is becoming. I was at the gym earlier doing some leg workouts when this 84 year old man came up to me and he says "You look great, don't ever stop taking care of yourself. I am 84 years old and I work out everyday, I still go bowling once a week, and I feel blessed!" He went on to tell me how his father was overweight, had heart and back problems and spent the remaining years of his life a couch potato. He said that INSPIRED him to take care of himself. I love that word. INSPIRED. It is such a great, positive word. I am inspired by so many people and this man is now one of them. He even gave me knuckles as he was walking away and told me to stay fit and teach my kids the importance of it.

Great way to start my day. I feel pretty good considering how exhausted I was this weekend. I saw my neighbor at the grocery store yesterday and she said that I looked exhausted. Well I was! But today I woke up full of energy. Probably because I got more than 4 hours of sleep. I have hit the gym twice and even on my carb depletion still feel pretty energetic. I have already almost had a full gallon of water and its only noon. That never happens. That is probably the one thing I am worst at. WATER, well that and sneaking little bites of my kids cereal! Ha ha!

Crunch time baby! Time to shower and do some posing!


  1. What a great way to have a workout! I love when people approach me with stories of why they are inspired! He inspired you and now you've inspired me!

    Oh and btw, nice job on the water!

  2. How nice of that gentleman! And kill your workouts today!!!!


  3. I love when older people are still fit and healthy. It just proves that people need to shut up with their excuses!

  4. I love your positivity here! It's funny when those compliments come when you need them most =)
