Never Too Old To Start...or Stop Exercising!

If you need a little inspiration to get moving today...here it is! Ernestine Shepherd is 74years old and can run circles around most of us! She is amazing!

Just a few interesting facts about Ernestine:

Shepherd runs about 80 miles per week and bench presses 150 pounds.

Bicep curls are done with 15- and 20-pound dumbbells.

Once she began to see the effects of lifting weights, Shepherd dedicated herself to becoming the oldest fitness competitor. Then, she took up running, which led to her completing eight marathons.

She eats smart. She eats several small meals a day as part of a diet plan she formulated with her trainers. She takes in 1,700 calories a day, mostly comprised of boiled egg whites, chicken, vegetables and a liquid egg white drink. And she is adamant that she does not use performance-enhancing drugs or even supplements beyond vitamin D. Read the full article to find out more on how this grandmother went from Flab to Fab!
