Never Say It’s Too Late…

Whenever I need a boost of equal parts ambition/motivation/shame, I re-read the story of Ernestine Shepard…

I  actually descended into some weird self-pity fugue  today, where I decided that since I wasn’t 25 anymore and would never be a Victoria’s Secret model, well then…I’d just stop working out!  Forget it!  I needed a shot of Ernestine.

Ernestine Shepherd is 74 years old. She is a personal trainer, a professional model & a competitive bodybuilder. She started exercising at the age of 56 & took up body building at age 72. Kinda makes my excuse of: “but I get up eeaaarly…I’m too tired…waaaahhhh…” look a little pitiful.

    Girl, it’s not too late. I turn 33 in a few weeks and I am still trying to get it together–and I can!
