AL Roker’s wife Deborah Roberts has admitted she forced herself to “push out negative voices” this week.
In a candid video shared on her Instagram Story on Thursday, Deborah filmed herself going for a jog in Manhattan.
Dressed in a black shiny puffer jacket and a bright green beenie hat, Deborah began by saying: “Good morning! How are you? Admittedly I’m a little sluggish today.
“I was trying my darnedest to talk myself of getting out. I don’t feel quite up to it, my knee is bothering me, but guess what? That voice did not win!” she continued.
“What are you doing to push out those negative voices that are holding you back?” she then asked her 238,000 followers before adding: “I hope you do, have a good one!”
Moments later, Deborah posted a video of a lake as she appeared to be standing in Central Park.
Earlier this week, Deborah stunned her fans by wearing a beautiful royal blue dress when she appeared on rival network’s Good Morning America to talk about an important topic.
On Tuesday’s show, Deborah appeared in a segment about Madonna and the problem with ageism in America.
The ABC contributor posted photos to her Instagram, where she wore a long-sleeve blue dress that came about four inches above her ankles.
Deborah styled the look with pointy blue heels.

In the second photo, she stood in front of the light-up Good Morning America sign with her arms raised in the air.
“At @goodmorningamerica shining a light on a major problem in society: ageism and women. A controversy is swirling around comments made about Madonna at the Grammys. #women #respect,” Deborah captioned the post.
As Michael Strahan, Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, and Lara Spencer, sat on the side, Deborah took on the important topic.
“There’s been a lot of chatter around this because for four decades, Madonna’s trademark had been about shock and awe on stage and off,” she reported.
“After the reaction she got at the Grammy Awards, some people are asking if this is less about how we treat Madonna and more about how we treat women who are growing older.”
After clips of Madonna at the Grammys and all throughout her career aired, along with the backlash she has faced, Deborah said that a statistic showed that “2/3 women over the age of 50 experience discrimination”.
“We need to talk to our children about ageism and not the women who are coping with it,” she ended.
ALL OF THE PRAISE!
Fans of Al‘s wife took to her Instagram comments to send her praises on her outfit and coverage.
“Love!” one simply wrote with two blue heart emojis.
“Love this!” said another, while a third added: “Loving this outfit.”
“You look beautiful in blue,” commented one fan, while another told her: “You look gorgeous… your dress.”
Someone else wrote: “Amazing reporting as always! And I must say you’re looking stunning in the blue!”
“Good morning. You look beautiful,” commented another fan.
