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 and new to the Amazing Amber Bears ABS-olutely Awesome Biggest Loser Fall Challenge. 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.

    emoticon Attention! It’s finally Friday, and the beginning of a 3 day weekend to celebrate our veterans on Veterans Day. We don’t want any good jokes MIA (Missing In Action) so fall in and march on in and take a seat. Make yourself at ease, and get ready to have some giggles with a few military jokes illustrating humor in uniform. emoticon


    A major was assigned to his new office on a military base. While he was setting up his office, a private knocked on the door. The major quickly picked up the phone, and motioned for the private to enter.

    On the phone the major said, "Yes sir, General, I think that is an excellent idea. . . . No sir, that's fine, feel free to call me any time. I'm glad I can help sir. . . . Yes sir, I will, and please give my best to your family as well. Thank you sir, and a good day to you too, General!"

    As the major hung up the phone he turned to the private and asked, "What can I do for you, private?"

    Sheepishly, the private mumbled, "Um, sir . . . I'm just here to hook up your phone, sir."

    You would think that being a submarine captain would pay well, but I hear they can't keep their heads above water.

    Paratroopers pull all the strings to stay on the job.

    When the sailor failed to report for duty, he really missed the boat.
