BL Fall Fitness Frenzy Go, Panthers, Go!

I find myself this year at age 55. I am in the middle of Iowa, in the country. I do not drive. 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 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 ...

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 & a challenge here on Spark.

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.

Living in a much smaller home has helped me pare down my possessions. I am debt free and plan on moving back into town when my old home is renovated.

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

Thanks for stopping by my blog on 2yrs 0 cigarettes. Loving the new car. Took awhile getting used to not shifting. My left leg didn't know what to do for awhile. LOL

Thanks for the support today. I was too sick/angry yesterday to put all the details in. My neck measurement is UNDER 16". Not by much, but still meets guidelines. And with new federal and state regs, you have to go to a provider on the federal registry. At $100 a pop for cdl physicals and $3+ a gallon for gas, finding another provider is harder than you would think. (The one I'm having problems with is the only office in the county). Sigh. God will just have the work it out.
