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.

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.

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 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.

    Thank you for reading my blog about my dress code rebellion.
    I loved the Capenters music. Karen's story is so sad, but it did shine a lot on a problem most people never knew existed.
    It’s hard to imagine now how many obstacles, great and small, that women faced and how we once just accepted it as “the way things were.”
