Michelle Obama has paid tribute to 'my girlfriends who help me stay sane and grounded through all of life’s ups and downs' by sharing an adorable throwback picture.
The former First Lady shared the photo her best girlfriends to Instagram overnight. Everyone in the photo is wearing colourful '80s-inspired activewear, but Michelle stands out in a belted leotard, leggings, and, of course, leg warmers.
Michelle gave her pals a big shout-out in the caption: 'This #GalentinesDay, I want to shout out my girlfriends who help me stay sane and grounded through all of life’s ups and downs. Whether we’re catching up over the phone, venting over a cup of coffee, or laughing it out during an 80s-themed workout, I know I can lean on these ladies—and that’s made all the difference.'
She added a question for her followers to answer: 'How do you show up for your best friends? Share in the comments below and don’t forget to tag your favourite girls to give them a little extra love today. #ThrowbackThursday.'
Michelle's workouts, with or without her friends, are important to her. In fact, she and husband Barack talked about their fitness schedules during marriage counselling. She is also super consistent with her sweat sessions.
Michelle's trainer, Cornell McClellan, told NPR that she doesn’t skip workouts at all. 'One of the things that I noticed from [the Obamas] and from herself initially is that this was something that was important and that she prioritised and found a way to fit it in,' he said. 'And I remember that when I was working with her all those many years ago, you know, she would be in the gym sometimes at 4:30, 5 o'clock in the morning.'
