Michelle Obama Wins Push-Up Challenge
(BlackDoctor.org) — Michelle Obama has been busy promoting her healthy eating and fitness program for two years. But how fit is she herself?
The U.S. first lady accepted a push-up challenge from Ellen DeGeneres on the comedian’s TV talk show, and completed 25 in front of a studio audience on Wednesday.
DeGeneres was beaten.
“I thought it wouldn’t be good to show off the first lady so I stopped,” quipped DeGeneres after quitting. “I thought this looks bad that I’m going to beat her. I’m 54 and you’re 48.”
Obama has been in Los Angeles promoting her “Let’s Move” campaign and on one of her stops, she brought food from the White House kitchen garden for to show host Jay Leno in a visit to “The Tonight Show” on Tuesday. She also visited a neighborhood market that plans to increase the availability of fruits and vegetables to customers.
