Welcome to my blog of Everyday Eileen!
I am a Mom of 4 who I adore and they make me laugh and I love them beyond anything!! I have been married for a very, very, very long time - did you see how many very's there were :)!! He is funny and works a lot !! We have a lot of fun and laughs! I am excited to share recipes with you all that are delish and healthy!! That being said - I believe in everything in moderation so there will be that delish cake, cookie or cupcake every now and again - probably more now then again - we just need to spend a little more at the gym or a longer walk that day! In Family ~ Fun - I hope to share things about my experiences as a Mom - it ain't easy all the time 🙂 - we all have those bad days but families can be hilarious - I hope to share more of the good days than bad days. I exercise based on knowing it is good for me - some days I enjoy it and other days my kids shame me into going to the gym or they switch out the cookie for a peach! One thing I really enjoy doing is walking and it is good for me. I hope to share the things I learn along the way of fitness and exercise and eating correctly. Like drinking lots of water, leaving out some carbs and doubling my veggies - and eating breakfast!
When I had my stroke in March of 2013 I had a reality check! As a Mom - I have found that so many of us take great care of everyone around us and not ourselves. I had ignored some things that I should have gone to the doctor and discussed. Would it have prevented what happened to me - I doubt it but at least I could have had some issues like high cholesterol and blood pressure addressed by my doctors. I will be reminding of regular check-ups and the dreaded gyno visits that we put off - have to do it!! Okay enough of the medical stuff - I hate dwelling on the negative!
I am going to share some things that I really enjoy in Fun - I have found some really cool things that I can not live without - like my juicer , my Fitbit , and water with crazy things in it - I am looking forward to sharing and hearing some things you love too!
So again, thanks for stopping by and I hope you become a regular!
