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:

    Rather than search for love, be love. Rather that wish for change, be the change. Embody kindness, and let your generous spirit guide you. Chrissy Carew

    Yesterday was again a miserable weather day. Rain that changed to snow in the afternoon. Just ugly. I really feel for those trying to return home and to work from the long weekend.

    Karleigh’s Mom suffered a 3rd stroke yesterday. That is 3 w/in 5 hrs. Prognosis is not good. She cannot speak. Karleigh and Ry are going to Alaska tomorrow afternoon. Waiting for a phone call to tell us when to pick them up to drive them to the airport. John has to work So sad.

    Please remember them in your thoughts and prayers!

    Sunday: What a completely miserable weather day yesterday. Rain, sleet, wind, UGLY. Miss Lilly was not enthused at all about going out, but I reminded her that I was out there w/her, too! She would ‘forgive’ me when she warmed up in my lap.

    ANNNNND today is a repeat of the ugliness. Rain, wind, dar, dank, UGLY.

    Have one more Christmas gift to buy then it’s time to start wrapping.

    Just got word that my daughter-in-love’s Mom in Alaska has had 2 strokes and is in ICU. Prognosis sounds grave. Please send prayers or good thoughts for Karleigh and her family.

    Hope you have a blessed Sunday.

    HUGS and blessings. Happy December!

    Out to breakfast! OF COURSE. Looking forward to it.

    Had a quiet day yesterday. Ready for that! It was fun to spend family time, but for sure, always good to have a bit of a rest, too.

    HUGS and enjoy the weekend.
