The other day we went for breakfast to a marina (this is a sea side city) and we found an ad for free spanish lessons. Well, that was fantastic. I emailed the lady and she told me all the opportunities for free lessons with a group. I definitely wanted to be a part of a group. So I started with the beginners and then then the intermediates. This morning I will try to make it to the regular 9 o'clock classes. Yesterday we went on a field trip to the Tecolote beach. I love how windy it is there and I just love to stand in the waves and get knocked over. The dogs enjoyed it a lot too and spent time just running around. Met a couple from Vancouver and told them a few hints about how to survive here in La Paz.
I am supposed to talk about my weight loss journey, so a couple of sentences about that. Being part of Spark keeps me somewhat accountable. I do lots of exercise but also find I still eat a fair amount. I have lost 25 lbs. and am stuck there for now. I still need to lose 20 lbs. but it is a journey. Spark has made me far more aware of what I am doing and I really eat in a far more healthy manner. I have gained a lot of knowledge.
