I do a variety of exercise from walking, hiking and running to swimming and biking. I like the variety to keep my interests and to challenge different muscle groups.
I grew up on a farm in Kansas and now live in the panhandle of Idaho. I love it here. There are lots of recreational activities to participate in - I just wish winter wasn't so LOOOOONG.
I have 2 children, Mark and Joshua. They are both on the autism spectrum. I started exercising about 5 years ago to help me deal with the stress of raising a special needs child. I LOVE my children and they are the reason I want to be healthy - physically and mentally.
Thanks for the nice comments on my blog. It's intersting, but some people think that once you are doing a job, that's all you're qualified to do. I tend to look at jobs as a skill set that can be applied to many different areas.
