Rhian Allen is an Australian blogger who started Healthy Mummy, a weight-loss and exercise plan for moms shedding post-baby weight. The site sells everything from DVDs to smoothies, but it also offers an inspirational blog filled with success stories of women who live healthier lives.
A few days ago Allen posted this photo on Instagram. Allen is the blonde woman on the right. At first glance, the woman wearing the cargoes and red bikini top looks a bit older than Allen--even though Allen, at 38, looks about 10 years younger than HER age. But the woman to Allen's left is actually her mom--and she's 60!!!
Allen's mom, Eryl Jones, is from Wales. She's retired, and, though not a vegetarian, says she eats lots of fruits and vegetables. The grandmother told the Daily Mail that she also goes on long walks, meditates, and believes in moderation. But Jones does have her indulgences: a glass of wine a day and dark chocolate. Her biggest secret, though, may be her outlook. She thinks people need to stay positive about getting older and see it as "a new stage of opportunity. The only way of not aging is dying young so I am very grateful and proud of my age and really glad to have got here. I'm a healthy granny and I hope to be a healthy great granny one day too," she told the Australian site.
