I'm going to use this blog post to keep track of efforts I make to be healthy in my Honda while I live in it for a year.

The average car in the US is 11 years old, like mine. I wanted to keep my car for 20 years, but that’s not going to happen. It creaks and groans, and I have to add antifreeze more often than most people do. Maybe I can keep it four more years. No more road trips.
I have super motivation to take care of it since it's also my home, although I’m tempted at times to try to get a new vehicle NOW to make car-living more comfortable. A newer car (a small SUV) would be more spacious and fuel-efficient. It’s currently not part of my plan, though. When I think about deviating from my plan, I look at my written plan and bring myself back. Whenever I get my next vehicle, I hope I can pay it off in a year, if not pay cash.
