Fifty, Fit, and Fabulous!!! Barbara Server, Age 53 (She lives around the corner from the Fountain of Youth)
Posted Sep 01 2013 12:43am
The fun thing about having started the elite "Fifty Fit and Fabulous" Club for my blog, is, speaking as a guy for a second if I may, is going through their AMAZING photos, and reading their stories. These are some amazing ladies (I suppose I'll get around to doing some men at some point I guess).
But my gang of "Fifty, Fit and Fabulous" ladies is still growing, and welcome Barbara Server, and meet the rest of my Fab-Possie, which includes amazingly youthful Carla Kemp, as well as my my alter ego, the actress turned wellness coach A.J. Johnson, the "you have to see it to believe it", age "Fifty plus Ten" but looks 35 Wendy Ida, and my girls, the dynamic duo of Theresa "Raw T" Jordan and Gervel Sampson.
We are no doubt taking over, defying the logic that age means anything……..except what you mind determines that it means.
Going into "Super Sleuth" mode to dig up some info about this Super Fit Bombshell, I found out she is a wife of 26 years, a mother of a 22 year old daughter.
Barbara says that…….
"I would love to say that I have been an athlete all my life but in fact I only started working out in a gym about 10 years ago and seriously for 4 years. I got into competitions less than 2 years and have become to love the fitness industry"
Just like many of us in my "Fifty, Fit, and Fabulous Club" club, Barbara's fitness motivation came partially out of fear.
Barbara says…….. "My motivation came from my families health history, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, thyroid, heart disease and all of those diseases are on both my mother and fathers sides.
…at 48 years old I knew if I didn't change the way I was eating I would inevitably end up with one of these family diseases"
Barbara works with other women, and comments on women breaking barriers to achieve their fitness goals ……
"A lot of it is emotional eating and for them to have someone to talk that listens to their needs, wants, dreams and desires motivates them, they want someone to hold them accountable, make them believe in themselves again.
We [women] have a tendency to be the care taker and forget to take care of ourselves"
Hey let's face it, this thing is about health and wellness for sure, but we all want to look as good as we can.
I love the and respect the way Barbara Server has the courage to acknowledge that when she says……..
"I believe we should be as beautiful on the inside as we are on the outside. We have all been given a "body" to shape and sculpt and make the most amazing physique possible. I love that we can transform our bodies to an amazing and beautiful piece of art."
You can check our more of what Barbara is doing at her "Rock Your Age" website where she sells her weight loss and cleansing products.
Michael Franks: The Fountain of Youth
I haven't posted my Theme Song from the Fifty Fit and Fabulous series, dedicated to the ladies, so I better post it here.
Folks may not get into my boy Michael Franks, and his groove is a little too slow and "grooveless" for my hip-hop friends,, but I'm a big fan of his, and this cut is where I get that infamous line "She lives around the corner from the Fountain of Youth".
Dedicated to Barbara Server and all the other "FF&F" ladies for "Keeping it Real"!!!!.
