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.

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.

    Welcome to Friday once again! I got a call today to remind me that have a dental appointment next week, and of course, that got me quite down in the mouth. . . So to cheer myself up, I decided to brighten my outlook and smile with some dental jokes. After all good dental hygiene is no laughing matter. I hope these don't leave you with a bad impression, feeling numb, or in need of some laughing gas.

    What do you call a dentist that doesn't like tea?
    Denis

    What is the most popular time for a dental appointment?
    At tooth hurty

    What the dental term for X-rays?
    Tooth pics

    What did the dentist say to his patient, the golf pro?
    You got a hole in one!

    What's the definition of a toothache?
    A pain in the mouth that sometimes drives people to extraction.

    What's the best way to get a job in the dentist's office?
    By word of mouth.

    What do you call a lecture from the dentist?
    His floss-ophy.

    Here are a couple more that should make you smile. . .

    My dentist was voted the #1 dentist in our county. All he got was a little plaque.

    A buddist monk went to the dentist, and he needed a cavity filled.
    He refused any novacaine or pain killers when they were offered.
    He decided to transcend dental medication.

    I guess these jokes must be getting a little long in the tooth, so I'll stop for now.
    But before I go, please tell me the tooth, the whole tooth, and nothing but the tooth . . .
    Did you REALLY like these jokes?
    Thanks for your support and encouragement this week, or just for dropping by to say Hi!
    Have a great day and a wonderful weekend!!!
