Hello from Costa Rica!
This is a Costa Rican, living in Costa Rica ;-))

I'm a happy member of the 5% Challenges with the Awesome A Team. The wonderful friends I've made through Spark Teams keep me motivated. Though I'm always in a constant battle with my weight, I can say I've learned what's good for my health and what works for me not only from SparkPeople's wonderful information, excellent blogs, and superb tools but from these well-organized challenges (5%, BL, and BLC seasonal challenges).
These challenges have made this lifelong difficult journey towards a healthier me, into a more joyful one.

"On any one day, you can massively change the direction of your life.” ~Jim Rohn


Member Since: 12/5/2010

My Goals:
To reach my normal BMI and stay there (the hard road of maintaining).


My Program:
*Exercise commitment:
A minimum of 60 m of exercise, walking/hiking/dancing, 5 days a week. This may include 30 min or more of yoga, stretching, ST, once or twice a week.
*Nutrition Commitment
To eat as healthy as possible within my calorie range to lose weight.



Personal Information:
I live in Grecia, Alajuela, Costa Rica, in the mountains (at an altitude of 4757 ft). I'm 60 (what a milestone!) and married for almost 42 years (another milestone!). Three grown children already gone, and three grandkids. I like to help with my DD with her two kids. I'm also fully in charge of the well being of my elderly mom unfortunately with advanced vascular dementia.
My first SparkFriend in this page is my daughter and my granddaughter Desiree quite some time ago.


Other Information:
Besides my family, I enjoy my daily routine of walking, usually 2 hours, with my walking buddies or my doggies. I also like to care for my pets, 5 dogs - 3 cats, Sparking, reading, watching movies or TV series. I also love to travel overseas, but can't afford to do it as often as I'd like to.

    I keep thinking how much I'd love a return to YOUR part of the world, Costa Rica -- which is so very very beautiful. I'd love to see a resplendent quetzal . . . have you? And if so, is there a particular eco resort where you think our chances would be pretty good?

    It’s about dog-gone time that Friday is here! Happy Friday! I hope it’s not been too ruff a week for you. Time to sit down with your cuppa coffee, tea, or whatever, and get your Happy On. I hope that this week’s dog jokes will make you howl with laughter!

    We named our dog Rolex because he’s a watchdog. He just sits there and watches. . .

    What did the Dalmatian say as its owner scratched its neck?
    Ahhhh . . . yeaaah, that’s the SPOT!


    What happens when you cross a rooster, a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle?
    You get a Cockerpoodledoo.

    What’s a dog’s favorite food?
    Anything that’s on your plate.

    Today’s Closing Thought for the Day: Never take your dog to the flea market.

    Enjoy your day! emoticon
