That’s awesome! I’m a (good bit) younger than granny, and I groan when standing from a seated position; and then I hobble the first few steps because my feet are achy.

Well, there goes my excuse for not getting in shape at 40 years her junior.

Right? Now I know that I am less fit than a 91-year-old. :flushed:

Is OK, these cookies will make me feel better :cookie::cookie::cookie:

Is this because muscles don’t atrophy as you age as long as you exercise them? I’m sure i read that somewhere and it’s been stuck in my head ever since.

Oh, and wow. :open_mouth:

Ahh, cookies. The cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems.

Yeah, Cookie Monster was my hero/mentor when I was an impressionable child.

But now that I am an adult, with logic and reason, I can see he was more of a god.

It’s inspiring to see what a ton of genetics and a little willpower can yeld!
