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:

    Thanks so much for your comment on my page. I really appreciate it. I've been out of the hospital a week today and am feeling better, though I still have knee pain. Combined with the years before the surgery that I was in pain, it seems like it's been forever! But I'm not giving up! I will keep trying to get better and someday hope to get the other one done. My stroke didn't do much damage. I think it's what they call a ministroke, which only temporarily affects balance and coordination. I couldn't type or write for a while, but I'm almost back to normal now, thank God. I have to take medication, however, and having had a ministroke does increase my risk of a more serious stroke in the future.

    Time really flies! I can't believe it's been four years since you lost Bill. I remember how sad you were because he had been your precious companion for six whole years. It is hard to lose someone, and he can never be replaced, but I am glad that you have found someone good to spend time with, to make your life richer and more fun. It's so great not to be alone! I hope you can both get out more now that the pandemic seems so much less threatening than before.

    I hope you have a wonderful Sunday! Take care, dear Ei!

    Drama does not just walk into your life. Either you create it, invite it, or associate with it.

    Ei, thank you so much for reading and commenting on my blog about having knee replacement surgery and a small stroke. When it rains, it pours, as the saying goes. I'm feeling better, but still feel pain in the knee five weeks out from surgery, and it's reassuring to hear others' experience. I'm sorry you felt pain for six weeks, but it helps to know I'm not the only one. The stroke slowed me down and made me worry about rehabilitation, but I'll do my best from here on out.

    I remember your shoulder pain. Has it already been that long?! Time sure is going by fast! I hope you are feeling good in every way now and can do everyday activities with no trouble. Also, hope you're enjoying a lovely spring by now!

    Hope you had a good time with Jack and Edie the other day. Our organizing has been fun. The paper shredding not so much! Ha! I'd like to get rid of all papers, but I don't trust too much on the computer or never use the CLOUD. Too much is being hacked these days. Good old paper still works, like for medical records, tax returns, receipts, paid bills, contracts, etc.
    I'm now at my lowest weight in a year!!
    emoticon Still have 25 more to go of the regained weight to go though. I'll get there, feeling good about it all!
    Have a good night. Later gator 🐊
