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

    emoticon on the 32 pound loss! Don't be like me and gain any back! Don't let anything get in the way! That's awesome about your exercises! I don't know why the experts feel walking is best for getting rid of belly fat. But, it does work- I'm proof positive for that. Since my main exercise these past 10 years has been walking. I've lost lots on inches on my gut/ belly due to that. I hope as time goes on, it will go off that area again. It has too! I cannot stand it!!! Ugh
    Have a good rest of the week sweet friend. Stay warm. I see Ohio is getting chilly. emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Oh yeah, I posted a new blog too. Sent you a sparkmail invite to hear my good news.

    Yes, storm was in our area, but fortunately south of us got the worst of it. You don't do the friend feed for friends do you? That's where I post updates, as I did during the storm. You can access friends feed from your start page on the far right under community links. Or on the actual pages of friends at the top. Some don't know about that.
    I'll tell you a tip or two on belly fat, helping lose weight green tea and 1T. cider vinegar in water before meals. You can look it up online. Also walking a lot. Not many exercises help. But core exercise may help with the strength and help. Like sit ups, leg lifts,etc. When I gained my 30 pounds I think half of it went to my belly----Ugh! So mad about this coronavirus hitting when it did. But, we'll get through it. At least I'm maintaining and not gaining anymore! Hang in there. Thanks for stopping by. emoticon
