Time to Shape Up and Meet life's challenges head on

I find myself this year at age 56. I was living in the middle of Iowa, in the country, for five years. Then my husband, James, was stricken down suddenly by liver cancer, turning my world upside down on July 2nd, 2015. Heartbroken, I carry on, moving into town.

Up until now, no problem bested me. So I have hope that I can make a new life after 37 years of marriage.

I realize I must still focus on my health, that it is never too late. I mostly use wii fit and exercise ...

Up until now, no problem bested me. So I have hope that I can make a new life after 37 years of marriage.

I realize I must still focus on my health, that it is never too late. I mostly use wii fit and exercise videos.

I enjoy the blogs of people with the same goal - getting healthier. I am inspired by so many!

I like all the resources on this site, but especially all the like minded people that really understand working toward fitness and health.

I keep a smile on my face and a thankful heart.
Most days.

Fitness isn't owned, it's rented.
..& you have to pay that rent EVERY single day.

Keep pushing. Keep striving.
Keep working hard. Keep giving it everything you've got.
Keep paying that rent each & EVERY day!!
It WILL pay off.
It will make you better.
It will make you stronger.
YOU are capable!! YOU are deserving!!
YOU are a top priority!! YOU are worthy!!
Stay Motivated, Change IS Coming!!
Hugs,

Jes
