A word of warning: Don't EVER tell me I look "good for my age". I just might smack you with a dumbbell.
I'm fifty(ish), and I'm not at all shy about letting people know my age. But I am on a bit of mission to prove that getting older doesn't mean slowing down, or behaving more sedately, or dressing like a granny. If people expect to find me sitting in a rocking chair knitting, they'd be sadly mistaken. I'm way more likely to be over at the park, doing pushups, squats or even swinging on the monkey bars.
I want to show folks that no matter what your age, you're never too old to make positive changes to your health and fitness. You don't have to start running marathons or do anything drastic to see results. You just have to make progressive, consistent improvements on your current lifestyle and commit to sticking with it.
Sometimes I'm serious, sometimes I'm a little bit silly. I like to share recipes, exercise tips, my own personal experiences and interesting stuff I find on the net and I try to practice what I preach. Hang around and have some fun with me! :)
The back story
|December 2000 - close to 90kg|
|September 2004 - 58kg|
|October 2008: ANB Figure Masters|
The past couple of years have been interesting. I've suffered a series of annoying and sometimes debilitating injuries, had a battle with hormonal upheaval, moved house and had a lot of stress going on. Throughout all of that, I've been far from perfect. But I've learned some valuable lessons and am still moving forward.
That's my story in a nutshell. Stick around and see what happens next.
