Hi Cherie. I’m a true believer in the saying that “life is a journey, not a destination.” I love setting and achieving goals in life – it gives my life purpose. That being said, I think that in the area of health and fitness, achieving and maintaining it is truly a “journey,” as how we do that, and how we define that, changes as we age. What I think is truly the satisfying part of that pursuit is what comes with it. By pursuing health and fitness throughout our lives, it opens up a world of possibilities as to our ability to enjoy other pursuits. It’s truly sad to see someone who, through inactivity has prematurely become less mobile, less vivacious, and unable to perform even simple day-to-day tasks. By pursuing the goal of wellness, fitness and health, we enable ourselves to enjoy the many simple pleasures that life offers us everyday.
I hope that this helps.
