Chris and Jill talk with Vicki Prussak in episode 22 of the Fit, Strong Women over 50 Podcast for the Becoming Elli community.  Vicki is a life-long learner, the eternal optimist, a certified wellness coach, ACE Fitness Nutrition Specialist, animal lover, artist, retired belly dancer and jewelry maker.

In her latest career, Vicki has developed a line of jewelry to encourage others to stay focused and positive. Vicki's previous careers have included wellness coaching and graphic design for various large corporations. 

Vicki describes how she overcame the despair following an accident with her eyes and how she got the weight off after three years of sedentary life following that accident.  As part of that discussion, Vicki talks about eating naturally and how she uses intermittent fasting or, as she calls it, intermittent eating.

Mainly, though, Jill, Chris, and Vicki discuss the power of words  and how focusing on the positive improve our self-esteem, increases our ability to make a change. Vicki explains how internal inspiration—those things we say to ourselves—is more powerful that external motivation. It’s this that allows you to use your strengths and natural abilities to excel. During the discussion of the power of positive affirmations, Vicki gives us the three words she uses for her inspiration: feel, focus and flow.

Chris and Jill conclude the episode by discussing some healthy tips for the holidays, focusing mainly on how to work in some fitness and how to manage food and alcohol at social events.
