I don't know her age, what she does for a living, or even what her name is, but my healthy role model (MHRM) is already doing the healthy things I want to be doing. She's definitely closer to my mom's age than mine, has shortish red hair in a sensible haircut, and is very fit. MHRM must live near my neighborhood because I see her regularly. Whatever I'm considering, she's already got down pat.
When I belonged to the gym, whenever I got there in the morning, she'd already be there, lifting. And not the light weights, either. When I go for long walks in Rock Creek Park, MHRM's already there. I'm not exaggerating when I say she laps me.
MHRM is not a young woman and of course she has wrinkles and laugh lines. She is beautiful and strong and confident. When I see her, I am inspired.
