Proud to be a member of the Black Panthers Shape Up for Spring Challenge 2016

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 ...

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.

Yesterday, I did some things to unwind. By evening I was right back into it. I don't think I'll ever drop out of political awareness. It actually is one of my passions. Glenn
