Vision statement: To live a long life, to look and feel better around others and feel better about myself, to make long term changes to have a more productive and enjoyable life. I can do this by being more active physically through exercise activities and opportunities like bike riding , swimming, and walking nature trails. Visit parks and walk at a pace where my heart rate isn't going wacky, having a sexy body and remembering, "...the body is the temple of the Lord...". Also, to learn not to be self-critical when things go wrong but to pick up the pieces and move on. To remember laughter and venture in the great outdoors to lift spirits, to find hobbies that promote healthy habits and to seek comforts outside of food. Most of all, celebrate life and embrace its treasures.

    Thank you so much for commenting on my friend feed , I am going to go back to checking it daily , but the truth is I attempt to spend a lot of time checking my friend feed at least once a day and encouraging others , so sometimes the human side of me gets a let down when I go to my feed and see nothing . That being said thank you for the comment ,knowing that you are helping and encouraging others is so important ! You are really stepping up your game and that's awesome , don't stop the new you is emerging from that cocoon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon and don't forget to stretch daily after walking they have a couple stretch videos by Coach Nicole that are short and sweet !Have a very Blessed day ! emoticon
