Fun Exercise vs. Work Stress:
Ernestine Shepherd, former Guiness record holder for the World’s Oldest Bodybuilder. From her Wiki…
Her diet consists of 1,700 calories a day, mostly from boiled egg whites, chicken, vegetables and a liquid egg white drink, and she runs about 80 miles a week; she does not take supplements
This radiant, smiling athlete could and should inspire half our nation, half her age, to maintain our physical well-being with more fidelity as our years advance.
“Ernestine Shepherd, age 75, wakes up at 3 a.m. every day to meditate, and then clocks up runs totaling 10 mi (16 km) before lunch. In 2010 and 2011 she was recognized by Guiness as oldest competitive female bodybuilder in the world.”
