There are so many things to consider when you decide to live life to the fullest. Of course I want to be healthy and fit, but why? To feel good, to be able to do more things, to have the ability to help others too. I want to be strong for my kids and a set a good example. When I work out regularly I tend to think I can eat whatever I want to. That has not produced the results I want. So goal one: healthy food. Also when I work out I tend to focus on one thing, like running, and then my abs stay flabby and my arms are not toned, so goal two: balanced exercise. When I do eat healthy and exercise regularly I start to feel as though my creative side starts to lag, I start craving the 'other' stuff (like crafting, or time with friends, or remodel projects or...) So goal three: balanced activities. And of course when I have all those things in place and still feel like something is missing I soon realize that it is the need to give back. I live in a small town where meth use, childhood obesity, high school drop out rates, and child abuse thrive. Now that my life is perfect (right? Ha ha) isn't it time to find a way to help the other people find their path as well? Goal four: help others.
