For decades, Ólafur (the Icelandic president) has made sure to exercise at least 50 minutes a day. “We usually start the day with a power walk with Sámi. But I think he started eating healthier food after we met, he now eats more vegetables and less wine bread,” says First Lady Dorrit Moussaieff in an interview with Fréttatímann (News Time) when she is asked about her husband’s physical condition.
The couple were visiting LazyTown, and although Ólafur Ragnar didn’t do the flip-flops and handstands in Sportacus’s costume, Dorrit didn’t forget to put on Stephanie’s pink wig and take a few exercises. Dorrit, who is 62 years old, is absolutely gorgeous and in great shape.
In an interview with Fréttatímann two weeks ago, Dorrit said that she has always paid attention to her diet and exercise. “I go to yoga, do Pilates and stretch. I have never smoked, do not eat much flour and not much sugar. I have always thought about what I eat. That makes me feel better. But I eat sugar when I’m in a bad mood and then I can’t pull my pants up the next day,” said Dorrit.
The couple have closely followed the rise of LazyTown in recent years. “It’s amazing to come into the world of filming the episodes and meet hundreds of people who are working to make Magnús’ dreams come true. The message of the shows is extremely important. Obesity is one of the biggest health problems in the West and the episodes encourage children to exercise more and eat healthy food. The LazyTown adventure is an example of a project that we have contributed to by introducing it to people, among others in the United States, China, Mexico and elsewhere. It has been a pleasure to watch it grow and prosper. LazyTown has shown that everything can be done in Iceland,” says Dorrit.
