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

    I see families and friends getting together baking cookies and making pasties ahead of time for the Holidays. I think this is a wonderful time for sharing. My younger daughter and I had intended to do this as well but, life has other plans. I call these special sharing days" memory days" . Making memories, sharing the gift of each other , celebrates our love. I am always pleased to see generations getting together.

    A Christmas or New Year's baby! How exciting! Congratulations! What a fabulous event to celebrate!!! What a fun time you will be having with your oldest granddaughter. Kids are amazingly funny!

    Thank you for the lovely comment on my blog.

    It is difficult for me at times to break routines. I could go to a strange city and be perfectly at ease exploring it on my own.. but, here at home I have a tendency to stay in my shell more.

    Enjoy your day! emoticon emoticon emoticon
