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.

Thanks for checking in to my blog today, but in defense of my hubby, he's been told when I go down to the basement to exercise, dance or walk on the treadmill, that he would have a death wish to come down. I'm a very private person when it comes to my body, and I refuse to allow anyone to see it flopping around! He said he knew that I was okay because he could hear me moving around, and the treadmill go off and on. He didn't know my "moving around" meant I was getting beat up by the treadmill, hahah!

I think they may need some educating about what that job entails. I don't know how you did it for 8 years. I bet others burn out a lot faster. Hope the one taking over Jan. 1 knows what o expect.

Keep the smile going.

Hugs, Linn
