Hi. Thanks for checking out my Spark Page. I'm Eileen and people call me Ei or IRISH. I live in Ohio!

I am in the PROCESS of reviewing my written Goals and updating them. I will Focus on Small Changes one at a time.

Member Since: 9/2/2010

My Goals:
1. To lose the weight needed for a healthier life.

2. Plan ahead + track meals, use portion control , plan my snack for the day.

3. Exercise at Silver sneaker classes or home

4. Drink 8 glasses of water daily

5. Eat 3 veggies + 3 fruits

6. Eat whole grains, poultry + fish

7. Get 7-8 hrs of sleep each night

8. Get needed rest daily. Do not overextend myself

9. To feel better each day as my goals are reached. Making sure to focus on plan.

10. To be well enough to continue to enjoy my grandchildren and spend time with them.THey are growing up
so fast.

My Program:
Currently following the WW plan + freestyle

I use my Recreation center for classes, walking track, and treadmill.
Go back to using the SPINNER once my doctor allows me to.

When not at the gym, plan at home dvd or walking outdoors on nice day.

Remember to PRAY + Thank God daily for all my blessings, follow his Will + guidance in all things. Without HIM I am nothing. My faith is very important to me.

Personal Information:

I have 3 wonderful adult children, one son and two daughters. I also have 3 grandchildren that I enjoy spending time with and taking care of when needed. They are a JOY to me.
I volunteer at my church, love to read, play games and cards and spend time with friends and family.

I have some health problems and this keeps me from doing as much as I used to. I do the BEST I can each day and make sure to stay active doing something physical even when I am unable to go to the Y or the Rec. center. I always say, I can't complain, some have things much worse than me. I am really blessed.

Other Information:

    Yes! We did go out to breakfast before hitting the road to get Lilly.

    Cold here. 42f right now and the winds are wicked cold.

    Ry seems to be enjoying school much more this year than last. Glad.

    Hope all is well with you! Have the heat on here, too. BRRRrrrr.

    Lilly is a yorkie-poo (yorkie and poodle). She has the yorkie hair and poodle temperament. Smart as a little whip.

    It was just meant to be. The groomer my Mr. Spot had when we lived in IL was fostering Lilly, but ended up spraining her ankle and couldn't keep up with the demands of a 4 mth. old puppy. She made us an offer we couldn't refuse, so yesterday we drove the 2 hrs. there and the 2 hrs. back. Lilly is a good little car rider!

    And thanks for reading Mother Goose is on the Loose. Yes, it's been a busy time, but still standing! So, all good!!


    Such a joy. LOTS of energy. Wish I could bottle it!
