Spring Into Action-Go, Panthers, Go!

I find myself this year at age 54. I am in the middle of Iowa, in the country. I do not drive and our road turns to mud when it rains, so I stay put often. Countryside is pretty, but I was city raised and feel totally out of my element after living in a small town with sidewalks from age 18 until 50. I am slowly adapting & enjoying all the new outdoor space.

I find myself this year at age 54. I am in the middle of Iowa, in the country. I do not drive and our road turns to mud when it rains, so I stay put often. Countryside is pretty, but I was city raised and feel totally out of my element after living in a small town with sidewalks from age 18 until 50. I am slowly adapting & enjoying all the new outdoor space.

Many nights I hear coyotes very close to the house, such a lonesome sound. Sometimes I startle a very large possum in the old barn or garage lean-to. Lots of wildlife for this quiet country life.

I am pleased that finally this year my yard has bird's foot trefoil growing in it! The bright yellow flowers bloom all summer & it has became my favorite volunteer plant in my yard next to purple sweet clover.

I realize it is high time to focus on my health, that it is never too late. I mostly use wii fit and exercise videos.

I 'just' have enough internet here for video streaming and for that I am grateful! Another half mile out, and I would have been internetless!

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 tend to fall off the course but then get back on, over and over. I really miss being in good shape.

Living in a much smaller home has helped me pare down my possessions, though I am still working on that as the barn has lots of goodies in it waiting for the right home.

I keep a smile on my face and a thankful heart.
Most days.

Cease negative mental chattering. If you think a thing is impossible, you'll make it impossible. Pessimism blunts the tools you need to succeed. Bruce Lee
