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

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.

My Goals:
To reach my normal BMI and stay there.


My Program:
*Exercise commitment:
A combination of walking, stretching yoga, and some ST for a total of 60 to 120 m every day from 5 to 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 62 and married for 43 years. Three grown children that are already gone, and four precious grandkids. I help my DD with her two kids (she has a full-time job). I'm in charge of the well-being of my elderly mom with advanced vascular dementia, she's being cared for in a 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 walking buddies or 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 when possible.

    I can't fully espresso my excitement because we've come to the bitter end of this week. Happy Friday to one and all!
    Time to rise and grind and get our happy on. How about we share a few giggles over our morning cuppa coffee?

    Why did the kangaroo stop drinking coffee?
    It made her too jumpy.

    How do you make beef jerky?
    You give it a cuppa joe.

    I do some of my best thinking over my morning cuppa coffee. I tend to have a latte on my mind.
