Ernestine Shepherd is an inspiration to me and should be an inspiration to everyone in the
world that thinks they are to old to get into shape. Ernestine and her late sister Velvet decided to get in
shape at the age of 56 because they didn't like themselves in bathing suites! After her sister died she fell
of the wagon so to speak because of her grief but her sister came to her in a dream and told her she had to keep
going and inspire other and so she the story goes with her at the age of 71 deciding she also wanted to be a body
builder when she was asked to give out prices to other body builders. Her moto today is Determined,
Disciplined & Dedicated and she always tells people that age is just a number and so continues to
inspire anyone wishing to get in better shape.
MY TIPS FOR WEIGHT
Exercise is the key to losing weight, you may find it hard to
change your eating habits at first, I did. That's where exercise comes in to help turbo boost your body
to burn the fat and with the right eating plan of course, the weight will drop off. I also use my Slim
& Sassy in my water to give my metabolism a kick start because you really need to keep hydrated when you work
out, even doTERRA's Peppermint oil has been found to oxygenate the blood so you can keep going longer and feel
refreshed and cool.
It has to become a way of life for you not just something that will give you a quick weight loss you know you
will only put it back on and more beside. I'm not a fitness trainer, I'm just someone that has struggled with
my weight in the past. I've never been happy with how my cloths fit and it just made me miserable all
through school and into young adult my life I am just a middle age women with a disability due to Polio that has
decided to make the best of what she has and make it stronger and enjoy life.
In my main collection I have an elliptical machine in my
living room now and a Tread mill in my kitchen and in the last 12 months I purchased an Aero Pilate machine which I
have set up in my bedroom. Marjolein Brugman was and still is an inspiration to me and that is why I have
embedded her Youtube exercise video for you as she goes through her exercises on the Aero Pilate
Being out of shape or having some form of disability doesn't mean
the end to life as you knew it, it just means you have to learn to adapt and build on your inner strength (look at
the Paraolympians, did they give up hell no). I had a vision of what I wanted from my body and with that
determination I set the wheels in motion. I workout daily either doing cardio or working
on muscle toning, I love using my flexi-bar to help strengthen my arms and core muscles. Having
everything handy means that I wont just sit there just watching TV when I could be exercising, the time goes
faster and before you know it you've burnt 100's of calories while watching your favourite soap! what ever
helps encourage you to keep going do it.
My tip is get yourself checked out first by your GP then start off
at your own pace. If 5 minutes is all you can stand then so be it. Listen to what your body is
tellingyou when you've had enough, but do try to push through it by 5
minutes or more each time. You will get better in time as long as you keep at
it, your body will start to recover and get stronger (muscle knows no age limit).
I find that less is more these days I do 15 minutes on my
elliptical machine and 15 minutes on my Tread Mill (You don't have to run for it to work) or 30 minutes or more on
my Aero Pilate machine as it's very addictive. I also bought some stretching bands to use before and after
exercise it makes your muscles more flexed and ready for action so you don't end up pulling a muscle.
To tone up my muscles I use a 4Kg kettle bell, a Flexi-bar, An Abs
lounger, Abs Revolutioniser (Ab Revolutionizer is actually it's correct name being from the UK I mispelt it by
mistake)- I like them all for toning and building muscles I just interchange them depending on how much
time I have and I only tone my muscles 3 days a week and I always have Sunday off from
exercise. I have had the Ab Revolutionizer now for over 5 years and
now. I use it with just 4 Kg weights on the flip down pole at the back, right hand side, which you can buy any where and use one of the clips that comes with them to hold
them in place.
I dare say heavier weights would have a greater effect, but I don't want to give myself a
hernia just yet!
You need a yoga mat under it because it can be pretty dam
painful on your spine otherwise. I didn't get the head rest with mine but when one is needed I just used a
rolled up towel. there's nothing to the kit really its just the science behind it, in that it puts your
pelvis in the correct position and engages your abs to have the maximum effect. I would definitely say it
works but wash board abs wasn't what I was after when I bought it just a stronger core. If I continued to get
my fat loss down and use this machine I would definitely see a ripple effect using heavier weights, but I am 53 now
and will keep using this machine along with the others I have bought over the year. Non of this equipment
will give you the desired look if it's cover in fat as my mentor Tom Venuto has always taught me, "muscle burn
fat". So burn the fat and feed the muscle.
I have even used the 6 second Abs machine all that did for me I'm afraid was give me blisters
pushing it up and down on my legs, I eventually gave it away.
The 6 second Abs machine can be purchased with stronger resistance bands to help build your abs - some people may
have enjoyed using it but it wasn't for me.
If like me you will find that exercising can be very addictive once
you get into it, so set yourself reasonable targets and don't use the scales as your guide to weight loss because you wont get an accurate reading because in the beginning you
will be losing water, gaining muscle and losing fat. Your clothes are you best guide but make sure you
use a tape measure all over your body and keep a little notebook to check your results each week. If
your going to measure your weight always do it on the same day and before food and drink and in your smalls to get
a more accurate weight.
Tip! I think we all know which food is our downfall and if you can either stop eating it
altogether or reduce it! already we are on the road to weight loss! Bread was mine - did you know
that one slice of bread can have upto 150 calories if it's brown and thick sliced and you may find your having
several slices with a meal. An average meal should only be 500 calories on it's own so the bread is like
having another meal on top. Author: Angela Ashton - age 55
