Joan MacDonald tiene 73 y tras sufrir depresión y diferentes problemas, tras divorciarse, decidió comenzar una nueva vida que hoy la tiene como influencer

Después de un crisis matrimonial que derivó en una profunda depresión, Joan MacDonald, una mujer canadiense de 73 años, decidió dar un extraordinario giro a su vida, dándole al ejercicio la oportunidad de ayudarla a salir adelante y convirtiéndose así en una influencer fitness con casi un millón de seguidores en Instagram.

Joan MacDonald ha relatado en varias ocasiones a medios locales su historia y su motivación para convertirse en lo que hoy es: un matrimonio fallido que la dejó con grandes problemas de depresión además de problemas de salud físicos como artritis, hipertensión y niveles de colesterol por los cielos.

Let’s talk about progress! Sometimes we get so fixated on where we want to be VS where we are not, that our eagerness actually sabotages our progress. What do I mean by that? I mean that body transformation, especially BIG transformation like mine, is going to be a very long, slow process. If I woke up every day expecting to see big changes, I would be one very disappointed lady. I can’t say it enough, focus on doing the best you can with the day right in front of you, and the future will naturally take care of itself. On the picture on the left, I was already down close to 20 lbs and I was so happy that I’d made it that far! This was real progress for me, and already beyond my wildest dreams. I was already starting to fall back in love with myself and to trust myself more, that I was capable to do the right thing and take the best care of myself.Fast forward to the photo on the right, and I have that exact same attitude of just doing the best I can with each day and letting the future take care of itself. I am doing the same things as the girl on the left: training with weights 4-5 x week, doing my cardio, measuring and planning my food, checking in with my coach regularly to make sure I’m on track.By focusing on your day-to-day habits, they become so polished and smooth that success is guaranteed. And when you finally arrive at that big transformation, you will find that the habits you gained are what it’s really all about anyway. I hope you understand what I’m trying to explain. Love yourself each stage of the journey, fall in love with your habits, focus on the day right in front of you, and success will take care of itself . With loveJoan

Sin embargo, la mujer no se dejó vencer, y con ayuda de su hija, la entrenadora Michelle MacDonald comenzó a entrenar para cambiar su estilo de vida. Así, con esfuerzo y dedicación, la mujer logró bajar más de 24 kilos en tan solo 3 años y tonificar su cuerpo.

You can do these at home or in a gym. DB Romanian deadlifts♂️.These are a really terrific exercise for your hamstrings, glutes and back. I’m using 20 lbs weights in each hand for sets of 20 reps and I just love how they make my backside feel.My big keys are to keep the core muscles really tight, keep the back flat, and keep the arms straight. I’m just hinging at the hips and pushing my hips back as far as I can, and then driving them forwards so they lock out nicely. I make sure to really feel this in my hamstrings and glutes and that there is no strain in my back.Wearing (as always!!) my @womensbest camo leggings and True tank top.@womensbest is now coming in XXL sizes! I wish I had these clothes when I was first starting out instead of wearing all the saggy baggy clothes I used to wear when I was 200 lbs. you have to celebrate where you are gals! You are working just as hard, if not harder, at the start of your weight loss journey, and deserve to look good and feel good every step of the way.With love,Joan ❤️#womensbest #womensbestwear #legday

"Cuando comencé nunca creí que llegaría hasta aquí. Yo sólo quería recuperar mi salud y dejar los medicamentos. Espero que todos sigan eligiendo crecer y atreverse a soñar otra vez, dijo MacDonald en una entrevista con un medio local. Joan se dedica ahora a compartir sus rutinas, fotografías y su día a día para tratar de motivar a otras personas.
