Michelle Obama Made Me Do It!
Happy Wednesday, Grown Folks! If you didn’t know, we launched June 1st and since that time so much has happened! To kick off the launch of the site we decided to hop on board and participate in the #GIMMEFIVE challenge!
This challenge is to basically get Americans active and motivate them to remain active. It’s been awesome to see all of the posted challenges, on the web. I have seen schools, celebrities, fitness experts, and many others participate in this challenge. However, I notice that there were hardly any people in 50+ community being represented. (FYI: There are over 76 million Americans us!) The last time I checked, we still had pizazz, wit, and were more than capable of completing a challenge!
Turning 50 has opened my eyes to the importance of getting out there and making it happen. My hope is that I can motivate you to take on new challenges in bettering yourself. Life is an ongoing process. We either have a chance to grow worse or better, and hope is that all of the GFE supporters experience the latter! Despite our age, we still have a chance to morph into better beings. So whether it derives from us taking on #GIMMEFIVE or us randomly waking one morning and deciding to make better health choices, we can do it! It doesn’t matter how we get there just as long as we arrive.
The 50+ community is a special group of people who have made great impacts on society, and now is the time to do something for ourselves. In ode to your ongoing service of helping others, we want to be of assistance and help our readers/followers. GFE will now dedicate Wednesdays to health & fitness, on our social media sites. We’ve given you five and now we’re giving you Wednesdays!
To kick off health and fitness Wednesdays, we are challenging you to give us your five! For more information on how you can join in on our version of the #GIMMEFIVE challenge, click this link to see how you can get involved!
