Jack LaLanne...Live young forever!

Sunday, May 09, 2010

I heard about this book somewhere on the web (Is anyone out there "old" enough to remember the JL show? lol!) Yesterday my son wanted to stop at the library, so I had to look to see if the book was available, Sure enough, I found it and checked it out. Started reading it as soon as I got home. That man is amazing! He's 93 years young now! Just goes to show that eating "clean" is what more Americans ought to be doing instead of using the drive thru burger joints!
I also have been more serious about lifting weights as of January 2010 but have been slacking lately, so this is the inspiration that I need to get going again!
If you read this blog, I suggest you go down to your local library and check it out today!
Thanks for reading my blog!

    Oh yes! To think that Jack Lalanne started out as a teenager eating unhealthy and having headaches,now look at him.I am so thankful you did this blog,he deserves so much admiration and recognition for his contriabution to his emoticon example he continues to be at 93.Is there a Jack LaLanne team for Spark? I would join,hmm,that gives me an idea.Do you want to be the leader? I am not experienced enough and not savvy with our pc yet. Power to the Jack LaLanne! Hugs,Diana emoticon emoticon emoticon If he can do it so can we! emoticon emoticon

    Okay - so you are telling me he is still ALIVE and KICKING? I remember Mom watching and exercising to his show on our black and white TV!

    By the way, she is 80 something now (she won't tell us exactly!) and now she exercises to Richard Simmons!

    GO MOM GO!

    I'm also old enough to remember him. My mom and I exercised with him every morning starting when I was very young--before I started kindergarten--and every day I had off school until I graduated from high school. That is probably why I never minded exercising. A few years ago reruns of his show were on ESPN at 6 a.m. For all these years he was telling people to eat and exercise exactly as Sparks suggests today. I recently found his book in the bargain section at Border's.

    I too am old to remember his show. My mom used to watch it. I have seen him on some of the shopping shows selling his juicer with his wife.
    Have a great day.
    Happy Mother's Day.
