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.

Heyyy panther Sister

I'm a wii fit and exercise videos kind of lady. My favorite videos are anything that comes from Leslie Sansone (walk away the pounds) and Zumba and I was just gifted a wii so that I can do Yoga AND just dance (if you haven't noticed.. i like to dance! lol)

I adore all the bling on your panther page! I'm so happy you're on the team with me we are going to ROAR away the winter blahs

Thanks for your comment on my blog. It's so hard to get through the holidays without gaining weight. Most of all, I want to feel good. I've spent too many holidays exhausted and sick. Not this time!
