Michelle Obama and Barbara Walters
First Lady Michelle Obama has been designed as “The Most Fascinating Person” of the year by Barbara Walters. And the competition was a rough one! Michele Obama placed the first in ABC journalist’s cast of 2009′s Top 10 most memorable people, leaving behind stars as Lady Gaga, Republican Sarah Palin, crooner Adam Lambert, Michael Jackson’s children, and the First Lady of South Carolina.
With this occasion, Michelle Obama was invited in Barbara Walters’ show on Wednesday and asked about her well-toned biceps. “Why would you want to talk about my arms?” Michelle asked. “I have to say that my personal routine hasn’t changed much in the past 11 years. I really started right after I had Malia, our oldest, and some of that, in all honesty, it was a little revenge because I’m married to man who has worked out all his life. Regardless of how busy he is, he finds the time to work out. Malia was four months old and she was still waking up for that 4 o’clock feeding and I’d get up because I’d be the first one to hear her. I thought, Well, I’m up, I might as well go to the gym and if I get to the gym, then he’ll have to wake up and do that [next] feeding. I’ll get a work out in and everyone will be happy. So if there’s anything that I can attribute these arms to it’s probably just determination”, the First Lady said.
