Why I write about my health...

I'm not exactly sure how I got on this email list, but I got an email from WEGO Health about National Health Blog Post Month.

I had no idea this existed. I also almost didn't open the email and was hovering over the trash can when I took a longer look at the subject line.

Glad I opened it and checked it out!


Are you excited? 'Cause I'm excited! Another challenge! This makes how many challenges now? The answer is A LOT. I don't know why, but there's something about it that makes me giddy. I realized that several of my challenges involve writing now. YEAH! Actually, they all do if I journal each thing, which I need to.

Since there's so many I might have to do little sections for each in my daily blogs. Just quick "how it's going" type blurbs. 

I received NaHeBloPoMo's (seriously? ...hahaha) Prompts PDF, which looks like it gives you a couple topics/questions to choose from for daily blogging. I'm hoping that I don't have to ONLY do these and that I can talk about whatever. I'm assuming so. Not that I don't want to do them...they just don't really tickle my fancy upon first glance. Perhaps they'll make me delve into topics I've never thought about.

First one!


Day 1 NaHeBloPoMo:

Why I write about my health...

It keeps me accountable. It lets me reflect on my choices for the day, my thoughts, and ultimately allows me to think out loud without looking like a crazy person talking to myself (which I totally do driving alone in the car). 

Having written about my health in the past, I can easily go back and review what worked back then and what didn't, how I've fallen into the same ruts and what I've done to flourish into the person I currently am. It's quite interesting! 

I also write about my health because I use it as a personal journal. I realize that I can easily lie to myself, but if I'm writing it down there's no REASON to. It's silly to pretend that I lead a perfect life and I don't want to leave details out, especially when I KNOW I'm not being honest. That is what this is for. Honesty.
