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

I'm a happy member of the 5% Challenges. The amazing 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.


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.

    How is a flag like Santa Claus?
    They both hang out at the pole!

    Teacher: "How did the Founding Fathers decide on our country's flag?"
    Student: "I guess they took a flag poll!"

    What did the patriotic dog do on Flag Day?
    He flagged his tail!

    What would you get if you crossed the Stars and Stripes with a cookie?
    A Flag Newton!
