The man who started me making all these crazy faces in addition to marching in place and doing arm exercises has passed away at the wonderful age of 96. The one and only Jack LaLanne had been my inspiration for all of these years as he convinced me way back in the 60’s with his television show that if we ate right and moved our bodies, we could live long healthy lives. Even his facial exercises promised results and one in particular guaranteed no double chin and that one definitely worked for me as it helped me look years younger than my counterparts.
I can only imagine how great I would feel if I had listened ( just a little bit more with regards to smoking). I didn’t smarten up until twelve years ago but unfortunately the damage to my lungs was already done. And, so I became determined to work out 3-5 times a week and also eat properly. In return I am feeling strong, toned and fit.
My goal today is to keep my wits about me and use my brain to learn something new every day…This way I too can live to that young age of 96 and still be doing my push-ups and downward dogs.
Thank you Jack LaLanne for being my motivator. I will never forget you!
