Looks good to me, similar to mine actually. Your HDL might be a bit lower than some people like, but factoring in low total cholesterol and trigs I say don't sweat it.

I think your job as a waitress would cover most of your needs, assuming you were busy and not sitting around, it's a lot of movement and carrying stuff around. I'd probably still try and lift heavy weights once or twice a week if possible.
