Hello from Costa Rica!

I'm in for the 2014 Fall 5% Challenge.

My team: The Awesome A Team.

Thanks to the 2014 Summer 5% Challenge, I lost 5.4 pounds! I was unable to get the motivation (a big push) necessary to embrace and enjoy a complete change in my lifestyle seriously, until I got into this challenge. I was always procrastinating that big start. I feel very happy I found them and extremely happy to have invaluable friends in my other teams as well. ...

I want to send special hugs to my mentor, GODS_TEMPLE (Ramona), to CHANGING-TURTLE, to SONGBIRDPAULA, for their friendship, constant sharing and support.

Member Since: 12/5/2010

SparkPoints: 115,813

Fitness Minutes: 132,045

My Goals:
To have fun, sharing and accomplishing goals in the life long journey towards our health, in our life style change.

My Program:
I aim to do 120 minutes of exercise or more per day. My rest day is Saturday, which I try to have it as an easy going but active day. As for the rest of the days, I do hiking as my main exercise. Three days a week I do a shorter hike with 6 lbs on my waist (the pounds I've recently lost!) plus 15 m ST and 15 m relaxing/stretching yoga. I complete the days with what I call moving around as much as I feel like it (dancing, playing, etc.) or the keep-moving approach ;-)

As for my diet, nothing specific but to eat as healthy as possible within my calorie range to loose weight.

Personal Information:
I live in Grecia, Alajuela, Costa Rica. I'm a Costa Rican. I live in the mountains (at an altitude of 4757 ft). Married for a lot of years. 3 grown-up kids already gone. An adorable grandson, Jose Antonio, and a lovely granddaughter, Desiree, whom I take care of, weekdays. My elderly mom also lives with us. She has senile dementia. I'm a TEFL (teacher of English as a foreign language), but currently not working on that, but as a caregiver at home.

Other Information:
My interests:
Besides my family, I love walking/hiking, my garden, Internet forums, reading, watching movies, my pets, 2 dogs - 4 cats. Oh, and I'd love to travel overseas often, but can't afford it :-))

emoticon for stopping by and brightening my day. It is chilly and dreary outside again this morning so I am trying to practice this quote by Anthony J. D'Angelo:

"Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine."

So, here is some emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon to brighten your day and mine! Have a Terrific Tuesday! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
