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.

    Saturday: We’re going to have our video breakfast. Haven’t decided what I’ll make for breakfast, but it’ll be something involving bagels! Ah, Breakfast Burger Bagel take-out. Scrambled eggs w/ham and cheddar cheese, on top of a sirloin burger sandwiched in a bagel w/hash browns. At least 2 meals out of this. It’s ginormous.

    Snow, snow, snow expected.

    HUGS and enjoy Saturday.

    HUGS ladies.

    Jason had a laminectomy from C4-the top of C7 (they shaved bulging disc from between those neck vertebraes.). The recuperation is up to 6 mths. BUT he has had improvements (2 mths. later) and it continues day by day.

    Definitely need a 2nd opinion. That’s what we did, too.

    Oh, both kids have had their share of miseries this past year and this year. BUT they’re young. They’ll bounce back!

    How is your family doing with this virus? I will feel so much better when we can get the vaccine.

    HUGS and stay safe, stay well.

    Jas is doing well post op. LOTS of work doing the rehab but he's doing it and making progress.

    We're doing well, considering! Our DD did have Covid in November, but she did pretty well. Still gets fatigued and short of breath. Has to keep following up w/those issues.

    OH so sorry to hear that you are having spinal problem as well. **SIGH** HOPE that the steroid injection helps. Glad you’re getting a 2nd opinion. We did that, too.
