At 87, what’s your secret to keeping fit?

I’ve always exercised, and of course I’ve always danced. I tell people my motives [for exercising] have changed. In my 30s, I exercised to look good; in my 50s, I exercised to stay fit; in my 70s, I exercised to stay ambulatory; and in my 80s, I exercise to avoid assisted living.” Dick Van Dyke

My Motivation: BLM! Damn son, as Jay-Z would say, "you cracked the can open again." Meaning me. I feel so good! One of my buddies came over while I was home in the fitness center doing my second cardio session, he will be taking the pictures on Friday morning, thinks I look awesome but he has other motives....LOL. I really turn heads now when I am walking with my short shorts on. This won't be a competition body but it sure as hell will turn heads on the beach. For competition, which I am NOT doing will probably take about four more months at this pace. Hell no!

@VA: No doubt. However, after I eat something, I am usually like, did I really have to have it. At least me, when I stay away from something for a long time and then go back, it's not all that great. I absolutely love sweets and if I want a dessert I'll just have it because if I don't, when I do eat it, I'll binge and that's how you develop an eating disorder. I will never purge. I had a gf who did though.

In my experience, when I am consistent in my training and I see changes, I am motivated to workout. And when I feel the urge to slack off and eat a bunch of shit, I am reminded of a slogan my friend, owner of Body By Denise. tells her clients. "Nothing tastes as good as feeling fit feels."

Being in The Lifestyle certainly is motivation to work out & eat right. Everyone may slack off now & then, but ya gotta get back on the horse.

I have been on and off the bandwagon so many times in my life despite knowing how amazing I feel when I am back on. Often times when off the routine it becomes a downward spiral of months trying to gain that mojo back. Now I am back in the "swing" of things. The LS has helped motivate me as has the almost complete elimination of sugar from my diet ( wow that stuff really has a crack affect on my brain)

I want to feel fit. I want to be strong. I know what I have to do to get there. Plus there is nothing like being a 45 year old woman and having that strength and discipline. Being more fit now than I was in my 20's and having the confidence and security that age brings. That in itself is another motivator to stay the course.

My Motivation is intertwine with discipline and lifestyle I've been doing this for so long now its become second nature and ingrained within me. the results that drive me are the physical changes that my body goes thru, the constant mental challenges that I face when I battle the Iron and how I face those challenges.
