When I saw this strong black woman in my Yahoo stories feed i was just like WOW. Just beautiful. Ernestine Shepherd aged 77 years old started body building at the tender age of 56 years old. Yes you read right 56, all because she was suffering depression. You see what can happen when you channel your problems and chose to be the winner and not the victim.
Here’s me trying to motivate myself to get my squats and press ups in before i decide it can wait till the next day. Then i read Ernestine gets up at 2.30am to prepare her egg whites, before going on a quick 10-mile jog with her husband of 55 years, Colin, 83. A 10 mile run.
She is an inspiration and when i reach her age i hope my body, is as beautifully toned and as strong as hers. An have a loving husband would be great too.
Let me know in the comments your thoughts on Ernestine.
