Hello from Costa Rica! I'm a Costa Rican, living in Costa Rica.

I'm also a proud member of the Awesome A Team - 5% Challenges. They, my awesome partners and challenges, keep me accountable at all times. 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. If I don't put it into practice it's solely due to me ;-))

I am extremely happy I've found invaluable friends along this lifelong journey here at SP.

"On any one day you can massively change the direction of your life.” ~Jim Rohn


Member Since: 12/5/2010

My Goals:
To have fun by sharing and accomplishing goals together with my SP friends in this lifelong health journey.


My Program:
The Summer 5% Challenge 2018
*Exercise Commitment
A minimum of 60 m of exercise, walking/hiking/dancing, 6 days a week. This may include 30 min or more of yoga stretching and ST, 2 days a week.
*Nutrition Commitment
To eat as healthy as possible within my calorie range to maintain or lose weight.



Personal Information:
I live in Grecia, Alajuela, Costa Rica, in the mountains (at an altitude of 4757 ft). I'm 59, married for 41 years. Three grown children already gone, and three grandkids. I'm a part time caregiver at home for my granddaughter 8, and her toddler brother 3. I'm also fully in charge of the well being of my elderly mom. She's currently living in an excellent elderly care facility which she loves.
My first SparkFriend in this page is my daughter and my granddaughter (pic taken about 7 years ago).


Other Information:
Besides my family, I enjoy my daily routine of walking -1 hour with my doggies & 1 hour with my walking buddies-, caring for my pets, 4 dogs - 3 cats, Sparking, reading, watching movies or TV series. I also love to travel overseas, but can't afford to do so as often as I'd like to.

    Thanks for dropping by my page to visit!

    It’s Motivational Monday!

    "Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. You don't fail overnight. Instead, failure is a few errors in judgment, repeated every day," ~ Jim Rohn

    Failure serves to remind us that the greater truth about your ability to endure is throughout the entire journey - not just one outcome. The deepest confidence comes not from that single moment in time when you cross the finish line to your goal, but rather in the countless moments that you experience - good or bad - which get you to the finish line.
    Wishing you a great week with many small successes!

    emoticon for taking the time to read and comment on my blog. You are so right that it shows you another side to dealing with obstacles. We do have to live with permanent obstacles in our lives and we have to learn to live with them. You are also right in that in a way we are overcoming them day by day. I know quite a few people who have fibromyalgia and are learning to live with it. Thanks again, for your comments on my blog.

    Have a great week!! emoticon
