It is amazing what you see when you get outside for a walk. I live in the Cleveland suburbs and while I love to complain about the winter weather, this area is very beautiful year round. I live very close to a National Park, the Cuyahoga Valley National Parkway. Today I took a short hike on the Towpath trail that follows along the canal and river and came across a natural Bald Eagle nesting habitat. It was soo amazing. I saw many eagles and tons of nest. This is not something I would have ever seen had I not taken a hike through the park. You don't get views like this in the gym and especially not in the house. I feel very blessed to be able to enjoy nature in this way. I keep thinking about what or where I would be (unable to walk or leave the house or on the other side of the grass) if I don't keep up with my healthy lifestyle. Even though I am still obese I know if I keep doing what I am doing I will get there. It seems like it will be a lifetime to reach my goals..but I am okay with that as long as I am reaching them!
