A Grandmother with Muscles

In Brooklyn, New York, a little girl was playing with some boys. They were riding I bicycles and playing ball.

"Diana!" the girl's father called. "Play with the girls! You're a girl, not a boy!"

Diana's father sounded a little angry. But Diana knew that her father was proud of her. He was proud that Diana was strong. He was proud that she was good at sports.

Diana grew up. She stopped playing ball and riding bicycles with the boys. She got married, moved to California, and had two sons. The years went by.

One day, when Diana was 48 years old, she went to a gym. She exercised and lifted weights. She really enjoyed it, so she went back a few days later. She started going to the gym three days a week; then she began going every day. She got stronger and stronger, and her muscles got bigger and bigger. Diana became a bodybuilder. Today Diana Vasquez is a champion bodybuilder. She has over 24 awards for bodybuilding.

Diana is proud of her awards, but she doesn't exercise and lift weights only to win awards. Diana's father said, "Good health is very important. If you don't have good health, you have nothing." Diana thinks that her father was right. She says, "Bodybuilding keeps me healthy. I feel better today than I did 20 years ago."

Diana says, "Good food is very important for health, too. Diet is 50 percent of bodybuilding. I don't eat butter or oil. I don't eat a lot of sweets. I eat a lot of fruit, vegetables, yogurt, and rice. I also get plenty of sleep and fresh air."

Bodybuilding and eating good food keep Diana healthy and young-looking. Look at the picture of Diana. How old does she look? Does she look 30. . . 35. . . maybe 40 years old?

Diana Vasquez is a grandmother. She is 51 years old.
