Da su godine samo broj, dokazala je Joan MacDonald, 74-godišnja baka, koja je želju za promjenom životnog stila dobila prije dvije godine.
Njena transformacija mnogima je inspiracija pa je na Instagramu prati preko 840 tisuća ljudi. Objavila je hrpu videa u kojima radi impresivne vježbe i pokazuje vještine na kojima bi joj mogli pozavidjeti i upola mlađi.
“Kad sam počela trenirati, nosila sam široku odjeću jer sam se sramila pokazati tijelo. Jednog dana kći mi je kupila novu sportsku odjeću i vidjela sam promjenu. Imala sam mišiće, moje tijelo je počelo poprimati drugačiji oblik. Osjećala sam se dobro samo zbog nove odjeće. To mi je bila motivacija”, otkrila je nedavno u jednoj objavi, prenosi “Index“.
Kako kaže, ako je ona mogla savladati lekciju u sedamdesetima, mogu i mlađi.
Volite se dovoljno da se odlučite na promjenu i pokazujte si tu ljubav svakodnevno”, dodala je.

My biggest advice to all of you trying to make a big change is: JUST DON’T QUIT! 💪 When I started out on this journey (that I’m STILL on, mind you), I didn’t have high expectations. I just wanted to get off my medication and stop racing towards that hospital bed! 😩 My daughter had tried for years to persuade me to stop snacking and start following a proper eating routine, but I was just too exhausted and depressed to make it stick, or so I thought. Watching my own mother sicken and pass away in a nursing home, and hearing my own doctor tell me I needed to increase my heart medication, was the final straw. 💪 When my daughter pleaded with me one last time to join her online transformation group, I went for it. Even though I didn’t own a cell phone at the time, or know a darned thing about apps or even how to take a picture and “load” it ! 😳 t#This was a Big Leap moment for me. I did it for my health, and I did it so that I could try to enjoy my last years on this earth happy and energized. 🙏 If I could persuade you all to do it for your own health and well-being, to invest in your strength and flexibility so that you can really enjoy being in your own body, then I will be a happy woman. When you improve your health, it’s like taking a whole new lease out in life. You don’t even know all the benefits that will come your way, so you can enjoy a heap of wonderful surprises there, too. 💕 . For those of you that are unable to work with a coach, my team and I are finalizing my first ebook to help you get started. It will cover training at home, a meal plan that I am helping to put together with some of my favorite recipes, and some of my own top tips on mindset. It will be available soon, and I will keep you all updated. I’m working very hard on the exercise videos myself. 💪💪 . Have a beautiful Sunday everybody. Let’s all get through this by spreading some positivity and light on the situation. With love, Joan xx . #transformation #health #fitover70
Njena trenerica je njena kći Michelle MacDonald, kojoj je to ujedno i zanimanje. Inače, Joan je skinula 27 kilograma te vježbanjem preoblikovala tijelo. Danas je utegnuta, zadovoljnija i nasmijana, ali i zdravija, što je i najvažnije.
