BL Winter Freeze Off Challenge! ---- ---- ---- --- 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.
