I have been Challenged! I'm stepping away from the plate and getting ready for the race of a lifetime!

Commiting to transforming my body & mindset, focusing on building a healthy lifestyle, finding a strong support, building a team and helping others along their healthy lifestyle journey.


I carry 30 - 10lb bags of potatoes around with me Everyday! That's right...300lbs!

When it comes to my family, career and leisure time...I play hard and always put my best foot forward. I set the bar high and I strive for excellence in everything I do. Somewhere along the way I forgot to focus on the best part of health.

2 months ago ask me to join a "90 Day Challenge". a month later I took her up on it! That was the BEST decision I have ever made. My journey has just begun and I cant wait to discover me all over again Xoxo

This is one of most life altering challenges i've every committed to, but I'm READY!

    emoticon Hello Sparkie emoticon dropping by with support and encouragement.........

    When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

    When the road you’re trudging seems all up-hill,

    When the funds are low emoticon and the debts are emoticon high,

    And you want to smile emoticon , but you have a sigh,

    When care is pressing you down a bit,

    Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

    Life is strange with its twists and turns,

    As every one of us sometimes learns,

    And many a failure turns about,

    When we might have won emoticon had we stuck it out;

    Don’t give up though the pace seems slow emoticon

    You may succeed with another blow,

    Success is failure turned inside out…

    The silver tint of the clouds emoticon of doubt,

    And you never can tell how close you are,

    It may be near when it seems so far;

    So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit…

    It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit Author Unknown

    I like interior design also, but I never studied it. I live in a Chicago bungalow. It gives me pleasure to add new things to the house!

    @FORBANDE - Thanks! Im even more special because Lola Falana Scheltens is my legal name (lol). Yes after the sassy Las Vegas showgirl. My daddy had a crush on her, and so I'm named after her. #makes for great conversation
