Baka (73) je imala višak kilograma, a onda je kupila nov telefon i počela je TRANSFORMACIJA koja ostavlja bez daha!
Džoan Makdonald (73) iz Ontarija celog života borila se sa kilograma. Kako kaže, hranom je pokušavala da pobegne iz lošeg braka i uskoro je dogurala do 90 kilograma. Nakon što je operisala koleno i smanjila kretanje, dodatno se ugojila i zdravstveno stanje joj se pogoršalo.
Time je jako zabrinula svoju ćerku Mišel (48) koja ju je nagovorila da se pridruži programu za mršavljenje.
Tako je januara 2017. godine Džoan počela da vežba u teretani četiri puta nedeljno i potpuno je promenila ishranu. Sve to radila je uz pomoć aplikacije na telefonu koju je prilagodila svojim potrebama i pomno je pratila.
- Bila sam prestrašena i potpuno zbunjena. Nabavila sam novi Ajfon kako bih mogla da skinem sve potrebne aplikacije i naučila da ih koristim. Par puta sam se rasplakala jer nisam mogla da razumem kako to sve funkcioniše, ali na svu sreću, tvrdoglava sam. Ćerka i zet bili su sve vreme uz mene i učili me kako da koristim telefon. Verujte mi, i ranije sam uspevala da smršam, ali kilogrami bi se uvek brzo vratili - kaže Džoan medijima.
Flashback Friday! ??? I just can’t remember being this big! ??. How did I even manage to walk around with that extra 60 lbs on my back for so long? What was it like to not be able to move around quickly? To not be able to bend my knees properly? To huff and puff going up and down stairs? What was it like to be in this body? To see my face like that? ? What was it like? . If you know of anyone suffering from being overweight, give them hope. No matter how old we are or how stubborn and set in our ways we are, we CAN CHANGE! ???? . Encourage. Support. Protect! . #transformation #fitspo #fitspiration #inspo #fitover70 #aginggracefully #aging
Mišel je majci otvorila i Instagram nalog kako bi Džoan kačila slike napretka i time se dodatno motivisala. Džoen ga redovno koristi a tamo, kaže, ima gomilu znatno mlađih udvarača.
- Ranije sam pila gomilu lekova, za visok pritisak, holesterol, želudac... sada više ne pijem ništa - tvrid ova baka.
- Fitnes mi je mnogo olakšao život. Nekada sam imala blizu 100 kilograma, a sada toliku težinu dižem kukovima - hvali se Džoen, dodajući i da ne možeda se odbrani od komplimenata kojima je obasipaju znatno mlađi muškarci. Kaže da joj to dodatno diže samopouzdanje.
Naravno, za sve je važna i njena promena u ishrani.
Okay so a lot of you are wondering about my training schedule and what a typical day looks like. I train 5 days a week, and I have been doing this since I started working with my daughter @yourhealthyhedonista January 2017. This is a typical leg day training session. I start off with 5 minutes of cardio to get the blood flowing and then I do about ten minutes of mobility exercises to oil up these old joints. ? You can see one of my everyday yoga flows in one of the frames down below ⬇️⬇️ . After that’s done I’m ready to train! ? The first exercise is usually a light weight going through a range of motion working on mind-body awareness. This is really important as you get older so you don’t get injured and you can really be present in your training session. Then I follow with heavier work where I really give it my all, get a nice sweat going, and get my heart rate up. Then I usually do some single leg or single arm work to correct any imbalances. Finally I do about 10-15 minutes of cooling down with foam rolling and stretching. ? my favorite part of my session! ???? . Here is my workout: 1) Smith Machine Split Squats. 3 sets of 12 reps per leg. My shoulder hurts when I have a bar in my back so I use a wide grip which helps a lot. I position myself so that my knee travels just past my toe which puts the emphasis on my quad muscle. Slow and steady I really feel a good burn in my legs. I prefer to wear knee pads on leg day but I forgot mine that day. What about you? 2. Narrow stance leg press! ? 4-6 sets of 8-10 reps. I’ll either try to add weight or I’ll try to do more sets to keep getting stronger week to week. 3. Belt Squats! ? 3-4 sets of 10-12 reps These are tricky but I really love them. Having the weight around my waist helps me to stay more upright and I really feel these in my quads! 4. Dumbbell Reverse Lunges 3 sets of 12 reps per side. Another favorite as I really feel these in my glutes as well as my legs, and I can see I’ve really improved on these over the years?. You all know I used to have high blood pressure, acid reflux and arthritis when I was 200 lbs. Getting my health back is the best! . Try this out and tag me if you do it! ?

- Najviše mi znače pohvale od muža koji mi ponovo redovno deli komplimente. Meni je sada potpuno normalno da zaobilazim masnu i nezdravu hranu jer želim da održim ovaj izgled a za sve koji traže inspiraciju mogu samo da kažem da ne očekuju čuda i promene preko noći. Menjajte sitnicu po sitnicu, rezultati će biti vidljivi a vama neće biti previše teško - poručuje ova baka.

I’ve been at this body recomposition thing for over two years now and I have to admit, even I get a little shocked at the changes. ? Listen, if even I can build up some muscle and tighten up my skin at 73 years old, you can to. The key is consistency . Trust me, I AM NOT PERFECT! Far from it! ?? ??? . . I am always getting in trouble with my daughter @yourhealthyhedonista for not eating enough vegetables or mixing up my macros. BUT I keep trying, I take every day with a grain of salt and a dash of sweat. I try to really lift hard at the gym but I also know when I need to see my chiropractor. I still spend lots of times with my friends and my hobbies. I really try to stay balanced. ? Just stay on track and go at your own pace. Don’t ever stop. This is for YOU ?? . My daughter tells me we will be putting together three months worth of programs for beginners when I’m in Tulum June 12th. These will be available as e-Books on her website . If there is anything you want to know about or have me talk about, please start asking now so I can address it in these little books and videos. I hope all of this will help you as much as I’ve been helped. ? . Have a wonderful day everybody. Be proud of yourself. Make yourself proud through your actions. Chose optimism. Smile inside and on the outside. Love yourself. Live! ??? . . #transformation #age #ageing #grandma #fitspiration
