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:

"Happiness is a mode of travel, not a destination. Enjoy the ride." Jim Smith

    OH my dear, yes, I will add your sister to my prayers. Sorry to hear she's struggling with so many issues.

    HUGS my dear.

    Raining here. We do need it, just not storms!

    Thanks for the prayers. Jas is feeling slightly better w/physical Therapy, but . . . PT isn't going to fix the problem, so he just wants the surgery over. ME, TOO! Want him to feel better.

    HUGS and hope all is well w/you.

    Never lose sight of how important that you are, regardless of your education or society-based designation. Penny Kane

    Tuesday: Rain overnight, and boomers this morning. We need the rain! Not as warm today, but near or @ 90 tomorrow. Looks like it may cool down on the weekend after some rain.

    Oh my gosh, the whole situation in Kenosha is so upsetting! My heavens. Not only was that guy shot in the back, but he had 3 kids in the back seat of the car. **SIGH** People have lost their minds, I think.

    Refrigerator is leaking somewhere, but still cooling (TWO YEARS OLD!) Tech out tomorrow.

    Let’s make Tuesday terrific.

    Have all Jas' appointments confirmed now. Hotel reservations. We'll leave on the 14th and leave for home on the 20th. (His surgery is on the 17th September). So, it will be a busy time.

    Have my packing list good to go. So, getting prepared and doing a little ech day.
