Daily Inspiation: Amazing Athletes

I want to start off by apologizing for missing yesterday’s posts. However, I have a good excuse. I was traveling all day. I spent the day in airports, flying to South Dakota to attend my Grandmother’s 100th birthday party. She Officially turns 100 today, March 2nd, 2017. All posts today, will be in honor of her. Later today, I’m going to post a few of my Grandmother’s personal recipes. But first, Β I’m starting off with a quick post featuring videos of 2 of the most amazing women I’ve ever seen. I hope you enjoy the videos.

First up is 80 year old Ernestine Shepherd: World’s oldest Female Body Builder

And, here is 91 year old gymnast, Johanna Quaas.

About Tamara Hoerner (1258 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes β€œGood, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
