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 ...

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.

Hi Karen. When I saw your responses, I thought "How's Karen doing?" Are you going to stay in the same area? That's Iowa, right? Hope things work out okay for you. I just learned this week that my older brother,70, has advanced prostrate cancer. I don't know if you know about the scale they use for prostrate cancer, but it goes from 6 to 10, from what I understand. My brother is at a nine. Then, my younger sister has pancreatic cancer. I guess you take things as they come. Best wishes to you, Glenn

My message to help motivate you & ( Especialy ) Me this week is


“Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”
~Mark Victor Hansen

Have A Wounderful Week !!!

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. I just turned in my first card so maybe I will win for the drawing this week. If not that's ok since I feel better.
