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!!

    Thanks for the comment on my blog.Interesting that you are doing this 10 minute thing too. I find I just feel like I have enough time for everything in my life right now, and most days the thought of 30 minutes exercise just doesn't seem possible - but 10 minutes I CAN manage. Glad to hear that it is working for you. I WILL persist.

We could use a new member to help keep our city in the top 10 cities for Spark America minutes. So, remember to log your fitness minutes on your tracker here. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle!

    Thank you for your kind words and encouragement! You cannot imagine how happy I was to see them there on my page. I have saved the Portobello mushrooms recipe and have them on my grocery list!
