A gardener, philosopher, writer, reader, dreamer, animal and pet lover, friend, optimist, philanthropist, do-gooder, designer, artist, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. I am determined to move toward continued good health and the energy to enjoy it with a few less pounds.

I have some physical limitations - As a passenger in a car accident when I was 25 I sustained permanent nerve damage that leaves me with about 20% of the use of my left arm and I was born left handed. I have spinal compression from the accident that minorly limits me. I have trick knees and foot problems - but I stay as active as I can.

I love to garden and that gives me plenty to do at this time of year. I ride my bike, try to walk 10,000 steps a day and love cardio dancing and short (10 minutes or so) workout videos. I try to read one book every week or so. I'm a good cook and am having fun creating new recipes for the Fast Metabolism diet phases.

In Irish Gaelic "Thank you very much," is written "Go raibh m�le maith agat" and is pronounced gurrah meel-ah mah hahgut. I am told the actual translation is: "May you have a thousand kindnesses."
So, I wish you Go raibh m�le maith agat!!

    There is a butterfly inside each one of us waiting to come out- the challenge is to recognize that truth with grace and in faith to experience the transformation.” - Danielle Coulanges

    Just when the caterpillar thought the world was ending, he turned into a butterfly. ~Proverb
    "Happiness is like a butterfly. The more you chase it the more it will elude you,
    but if you turn your attention to other things it will come and sit quietly on your shoulder."
    Enjoy the day I hope your bags are packed for the new week as we journey to good health. Happy Day and enjoy being butterfly of the day.
