If you’re like most people, you’ve tried to lead a healthy life many many times, only to find that your cravings drag you back into the pit of despair and self-loathing. If this is sounding familiar, don’t worry, you aren’t alone. Not even close. If you’re looking for motivation to keep going and try again to live a healthy life, take a look at this 80 year old grandma who has been named the oldest body builder in the world and just celebrated her birthday. She looks stunning in her body, and the best part about looking at her is the fact that she has a huge smile on her face which betrays her commitment to living healthy and happy.
She didn’t start getting into fitness or exercise until her late 50s, and from there on, she simply fell in love with the idea of it and formed herself into a body builder. It’s so inspiring to see that she works the way she does because she loves it. It just goes to show you that anyone can get the body that she does simply by finding the right way to exercise. After all, if you love doing it, you’re going to want to do it more often. This is how she – and we, after reading this – looks at keeping herself in shape and loving every minute of it.
1. I think it’s in your twenties when you finally realize that life is finite. As a kid life is just this thing that goes on forever. Consequences don’t matter as much because the future in unfathomably far away. It’s a good time for making bad decisions but as you progress through your twenties you start realizing that the future is coming up fast and how it looks actually does depend on what you do now.
You learn that relationships aren’t like in the movies, that they take work and thought and that everyone is flawed and damaged and that they’ll probably kick you in the gut at least a dozen or so times.
You learn that the friendships you took for granted as a kid actually fall away pretty quickly if you neglect them and that even if you don’t, time has a habit of changing people and your best friend from school is different since he got married or that guy you did a bunch of blow with at university never really got the hang of stopping that and isn’t as much fun anymore.
You learn that being healthy isn’t an autopilot thing anymore. That if you eat shitty food and sit on your couch too much, shit will start to hurt and you’ll feel more tired and grouchy. There’s a similar lesson with booze and drugs.
You’ll have known more people who are now dead, or hear of more deaths than you used to, even if they’re not someone you knew particularly well and, as you get to the end of your twenties you’ll realize that there’s a good possibility you’re a third of the way in and that’ll freak you out a bit but it’s a good thing.

4. I once got asked “What’s it like having a sister?” right in front of my sister and I said “Imagine the person you hate most in the world. Now imagine being obligated to love them.”
She didn’t disagree.
5. How one moment you hate them with every inch of your being and the next carrying on like nothing happened.
6. Oldest gets Mario, yongest gets Luigi.
7. When me and my brother were kids everything had to be equally shared. Especially food.
To the point where we put the glasses side by side to get exact the same amount of juice for each one. I recall one time we counted the amount of Pringles chips and split in two equally amounts. The crumbles and broken chips went to parents of course.
