Awww. You made me cry and that's a good thing:) I remember doing Jack Lalaine with my mom when I was like 4. Loved the dog, but really loved watching mom. She was so beautiful to me. I would lay next to her doing sit ups or copy her doing arm circles. Phew...misty now.
Tosca is one of mine too. Ran into her at a book show for work and she gave me a book and her and Robert signed it for my boyfriend. She and Robert are so gracious and down to earth. Very sweet people that simply glow:)
As for the husband, my boyfriend is the best and a wonderful guy, but he is not one to compliment. He is a jokester. Has surprised me by saying that he loves watching me lift and thinks it's sexy how into it I am. loves the focus and flex:)
Bet your daughter already sees that in you. We love our mommies:)
Good question! Thanks for the info on Ernestine Shepard. Not only is she phenominal, but I actually had a little tear reading about how her husband fully supports her (love my husband but self donation is not his thing at all, he's read that and say something, like see that's what you should do for me. LOL) She is definitely an inspiration.
My husband inspires me by me trying to be a good example to him.
My daughter, in that I want to show her that being a strong capable woman is possible but also desirable in life.
Tosca Reno is an inspiration going from middle age flab to that fit and fantastic woman she is.
My mother, though she is now in her 80s, and never was one to do heavy weights, I grew up with her slant board (I used to put it up on the couch and use it as a slide) and 5 lb vinyl dumbbells in the house. There was a mini trampoline once too. And she still walks or does water aerobics, although she has arthritis and cannot be as consistent. She may not have a slim and trim figure anymore, but she still watches what she eats (healthy but always tasty) and tries to do some activity.
