Thank you for visiting my Sparkpage. I'm Vicki and I'm back after quite a few years of not really paying any attention to my physical health. Took a break to look after some other health issues. It became quite a struggle to just get through my days and paying attention to my nutrition and physical activity became too much for me for quite a few years. I'm starting over and hope that I can find the same amazing support from this community as I learned to count on then. I promise I will provide it to anyone who needs anything that I have to give as well.

Motivational Quotes:

"Talk is cheap. It’s what you do that determines the script of your life. Translate your insights, understandings and awareness into purposeful, meaningful, constructive actions. They are of no value until then. Measure yourself and others based on results — not intentions or words."
-Dr. Phil McGraw

"The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don't define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them."
-Denis Watley

Success is falling down nine times and getting up ten.
-Jon Bon Jovi

    I’m just cruising around cheering folks through their journey to health!

    “Without passion man is a mere latent force and possibility, like the flint which awaits the sock of the iron before it can give forth its spark.” ~ Henri Frederic Amiel

    “Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” ~ e.e. cummings

    “Excellence is not an act but a habit. The things you do the most are the things you will do the best.” ~ Marva Collins

    Have a healthy week!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog! I've decided that if we just ignore those power hungry appliances, we in turn, regain the control emoticon They definitely aren't interested in making peace, but I'm compiling a plan of action to defeat her! If I keep on my healthy track, she's going to have to give in sooner or later! Have a great weekend!
