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

I'm taking a long break from the amazing 5% Challenges. 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.

For the sake of my knees screaming 'lose weight, please!', I'm going to try to lose weight. Doctors suggestion also.

"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.


My Program:
*Exercise commitment:
A combination of walking/recumbent bike/yoga stretching/pilates ST for a total of 60 to 120 m every day at least 6 days a week.
*Nutrition Commitment
To eat as healthy as possible within my calorie range to lose weight using SP.



Personal Information:
I live in Grecia, Alajuela, Costa Rica, in the mountains (at an altitude of 4757 ft). I'm 61 and married for 43 years. Three grown children already gone, and three grandkids. I like to help my DD with her two kids (she has a full time job). Though I'm in charge of the well being of my elderly mom with advanced vascular dementia, she's being cared for by my youngest son and his wife at their home.
My first SparkFriend on 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 1 to 2 hours, with my walking buddies or my doggies. I also like to care for my pets, 4 dogs - 3 cats, knitting, Sparking, reading, watching movies or TV series. I also love to travel overseas, but now, until further notice.

    It's freeky Friday, and the day before Halloween! Welcome to my Pumpkin Patch. Take a load off and come sit for a spell.
    I've been busy brewing up these little frog kisses of humor for you. I'll be trying to scare up some good ol' fashioned Halloween fun and giggles for you. Some of these might seem a little batty, but make no bones about it - I'm sure one will scare a good laugh out of you. And now, my little pretties, let the spellbinding undertaking begin . . .

    Why do skeletons have such low esteem?
    They have no body to love.

    Why don't mummies take a vacation when Halloween is over?
    They're afraid they'll unwind.

    What's it like to be kissed by a vampire?
    It's a real pain in the neck!

    What streets do ghosts like to haunt best?
    Dead ends.

    What's a ghost's least favorite room in a house?
    The living room.

    What food do witches like to eat at the beach?
    Sandwiches

    How do you make a skeleton laugh?
    You tickle his funny bone.

    Why are ghosts such terrible liars?
    You can see right through them.

    What food do Italians like to eat on Halloween?
    Fettucini afraid-o.

    Knock, knock. . .
    Who's there?
    Orange. . .
    Orange who?
    Orange you glad these Halloween giggles are finally over?!

    Tip of the day:
    1. Give out apples for Halloween.
    2. Wait for teenagers to T.P. your house.
    3. Collect T.P. from trees and shrubs.
    4. Now you won't have to buy T.P. for the next 6 months!

    I hope you had a howlin' good time, and wish you a very Happy Howl-oween, along with a spooktacular weekend!
