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

    Well, it warmed up nicely yesterday into the 60’s. We may get warmer than that today. Ready for it!

    Jas and I are going to BBQ tonight. The kids are working, but Clara’s birthday is on the 15th of June, so we’ll be able to get together sometime near her birthday.

    Here’s to a peaceful, grateful Memorial Day. Never forget the reason we remember this day . . . for all those who gave their lives so we have the freedoms we do today.

    Being fully present is being awake to the movement and creation of life, being alive to the process of life itself. Pema Chodron

    Beautiful day yesterday . . . cool but lovely sunshine. Today, supposed to be the same. . . maybe a little warmer! I will be happy with that.

    Have a blessed, peaceful Sunday.
