Jo De La Rosa turns 40 in six months, and as she approaches her milestone birthday she's on a mission that has her rolling out of bed at an early hour. In an Instagram Story from March 3, The Real Housewives of Orange County alum shared her motivation to get in the best shape of her life — even if she was going to need a stronger cup of coffee to achieve it.
"I woke up at 7 a.m. today, which is very different for me," she shared. "I typically stay up until 2 a.m., working, creating, and then wake up around 8:30 or 9:30, so this is different for me. But, I'm turning 40 this year, in September — what? And I just decided that I want to get into the best shape of my life. So, I have six months. I'm going to try this whole wake up in the morning, work out in the morning thing, like a lot of people do, see how I feel." She panned over her outfit to demonstrate her commitment: "Gym clothes on!"
"Day one, guys!" she added. "For those of you that know me, I do not work out. I just ... try to eat really clean ... So, we're off the gym, say a prayer for me that I don't die."
Well, at least Jo doesn't have far to travel: She later revealed that the gym in question is in her building. But sending a few prayer emojis Jo's way wouldn't hurt, so let's all send this Orange County OG some love — and perhaps a flexed bicep or two.
