3 Week Blog-A-Day Challenge

3. What is your big picture, long-term goal? Why is this goal the one you work towards?

That's a great question! Even though my current efforts feel as if they're part of something big, they are still rather short-term (1-3 months).

I'm working on my educational endeavors for a better/different job, but even that doesn't seem like a long-term goal. Well, maybe in hindsight it does.

Overall, the quest for better health is ultimately why I do many things: Eat well, hydrate, get sufficient rest, add better habits and routines to the mix. I want to be healthy and mobile well into my later years. I don't want to rely on a notebook to track my medications or dietary requirements.

That's plenty to work towards, no?

    I'm with you on not wanting to rely on medications or restrictive diets because I've neglected myself and my health. No way do I want to have diabetes or heart disease.

    I echo your words "I don't want to rely on a notebook to track my medications or dietary requirements." Thrilling this week to hear my doc say, "I think we can get rid of your cholesterol medication and HRT." WOOHOO! It feels good to know you're where you should be because of you, and not a Rx. Good for you -- and the educational part is important too. Feeling good about who you are, how you are, and what you can accomplish is a great triumvirate to aspire to.

    Keep up the good work!

    I'm also working on blogging everyday, and I find that it really helps me to get some perspective on my hurdles and struggles. It also helps me to vent or turn the frustration into laughter.
