Why wait? I'd be pretty happy if all women looked like her by the age of 40... (ok, don't flame me for the sexist comment Smiley Tongue)


You know what? So would I! I'd be thrilled if more women took fitness as serious as does Kay Glynn. Imagine how much more we could do! It is really amazing we run the world in the shape we're in. Smiley Wink

 

Anyway ... I'm most the way there. I'm just working on 4 stubborn pounds of flab. Very. Stubborn. Flab. Ugh. (we're lifting weights and doing targeted exercises: I'll get there)

The National Senior Games asked top competitors for pearls of wisdom. Then they put these bits in a downloadable pdf on their web site. Here are a few...
