My New Guru

Forget your Doctor Phils and Paul McKennas, I've found a new guru for healthy living. Shaquille O'Neal started Twittering towards the end of last year (he's the Real Shaq), joining the growing ranks of celebrities sending out their thoughts in 140 characters or less.

Shaq has a great turn of phrase and is full of inspirational quotes. Most of all I love hearing about his yoga classes, getting a haircut and trying to resist the siren call of McDonalds. See, he's just like us… except really tall and wealthy!

  1. I love that Shaq goes to yoga. I’m picturing him needing a custom made yoga mat, because he would be too long to do downward dog on a regular mat. Tee hee-thanks for sharing this-it gave me a giggle.

  2. I’m not quite sure what to say besides – hilarious! I’ll have to follow him for some comedy gold. πŸ™‚

  3. That is hilarious! Loving the fact he felt an extra slick and it stayed with him so much that he had to share it. What a cutie pie.

    How was le grande pomme? x

  4. @flossy-p – I hadn’t seen that, thanks πŸ™‚

    @Lainey – it is tres jolie! πŸ™‚

    @Chantelle – I didn’t realise he still played either! I swear he was playing when i was at school…

    I loved this tweet yesterday:

    “Cant sleep after a loss, watchn maury povich, i am not the father schwwwww”

  5. I like that shaq is sending millions lbs of peanutbutta to africa. I hope he is also sending something to wash it down with πŸ™‚

  6. I’m going to be thinking of the ‘gotta get my stretch on’ phrase whenever I exercise now…I love it (and McDonald’s fries too incidentally!)

  7. That is so stinking hysterical.

    Can’t wait to see you on TV on Wednesday. Hopefully no more planes will go in the Hudson & you’ll make it on this time. Enjoy NY while you can!

  8. Hello! I just read your story, the top 20 tips. I just have to say, you are an inspiration. So many people could go bonkers with weight loss, I just say KUDOS to you for managing it properly! You seem like such a kind person, too.
