Monday was Academy Award-winning actress Mo’Nique’s 50th birthday. And while we marked the big 5-0 by looking back at her transformation over the years, the star actually chose to at least kick start the day with an intense dance workout. You know she loves a great dance workout with her trainer, Dwight Holt, Jr. She shared the routine, otherwise known as the “birthday dance,” that they came up with for her special day. But before she bust that serious move, she shared this message with her followers about being grateful to make it to 50, and how it’s the perfect time to live life to the fullest.

“Today, I am officially 50 years old. I take that back. Today, I’m 50 years young,” she said. “Listen, my sweet sisters, 50 years young is a beautiful place to be. If you’re not there yet, take your time. If you are there, welcome. And if you’re over there, baby, listen here, what a journey it is. Don’t be afraid to live.”

The funny lady is going into her 50s in perhaps her best shape and spirit thanks to her workouts and change in diet over the last few years.

Looking good! She’s always moving and motivating others to do the same. Here’s to another 50 years of health, wealth and happiness.
