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.

Still working on my Living Healthy Recipe Cookbook.

    "Time always moves forward whether you move forward or not. Your most effective strategy is to make use of each moment as soon as it arrives.
    There's no end to what you can accomplish if you'll just go ahead and get going. Now is what you have, so make now your time to begin."
    -- Ralph Marston

    “The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation.
    Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or
    whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what?
    After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation
    comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.”
    -John C. Maxwell

    To make something great happen you must get busy and make it happen.
    Take that action step today that will put you on your path to achievement."
