Working on getting healthy in mind, body and spirit. It has been a long rough road but making progress. If I just concentrate on my body it appears I am not making progress but when I concentrate on mind and spirit there is progress. That now is my priority and doing 30 minutes of workout everyday because when I exercise my mind is clearer.
This quote by Dr. Wayne Dyer has had a big impact on me.

"Consider that the number one health problem in America seems to be obesity. How can you feel inspired and live in simplicity if you're gorging on excessive amounts of food and eliminating the exercise that the body craves? Recall that your body is a sacred temple where you reside for this lifetime, so make some time every single day for exercising it. Even if you only manage a walk around the block, just do it. Similarly, keep the words portion control uppermost in your consciousness-your stomach is the size of your fist, not a wheelbarrow! Respect your sacred temple and simplify your life by being an exerciser and sensible eater. I promise that you'll feel inspired if you act on this today! " Dr. Wayne Dyer, in Inspiration: Your Ultimate Calling.

I started an exercise program in June 2010. I started walking as far as my body would take me. Now I am walking 3 days a week 4-5 miles each day in an hour. I also do resistance and flexibility exercises the other days and rest on Sunday. Eating healthy, watching portions, eating less meat more veggies. Still working on my Living Healthy Recipe Cookbook.

    “The most influential and frequent voice you hear is your inner-voice.
    It can work in your favor or against you, depending on what you listen to and act upon.”

    "If you celebrate your different-ness, the world will, too. It believes exactly what you tell it—through the words you use to describe yourself, the actions you take to care for yourself, and the choices you make to express yourself. Tell the world you are one-of-a-kind creation who came here to experience wonder and spread joy."

    PS: Great to have you with me to make as much progress as we can by New Years day. How awesome that you could possibly be at goal by then. Even if you're not, just imagine how close you can get and how wonderful you will feel. I look forward to hearing about your successes so keep me posted, ok?
