Still Doing It

86-year-old gymnast, Johanna Quaas, pulled off some moves most people don't ever come close to achieving at the Pre-Olympic German gymnastics trials. She now holds the world record for being the oldest gymnast in history.

Holy smokes missy. Talk about keeping your groove on.

Here is her floor routine, which has also received over 3 million hits.

I've been meaning to write about someone I know who has been struggling with both weight and knee issues over the passed several years. The good news is that before she launched into what she knew was going to be a very stressful summer for her logistically, because of her life being tipped upside-down temporarily, she decided to greatly reduce the amount of sugar she ate. She also cut out white flour. So instead of potentially putting on more weight and experiencing more knee pain with all the stress, she lost twenty pounds over the summer. And don't you know her knee problem resolved itself? Like magic.

Eating sugar, as you may already know, causes inflammation.

I always say that sugar is like poison.

And the more we eat it, the more we crave it.

Sugar is kind of like crack and is bad for us in so many ways.

And have a wonderful fall weekend, dear readers of mine,
