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: 110,714

Fitness Minutes: 128,745

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. Today's food for thought is by H. Ross Perot:

“Most people give up just when they’re about to achieve success. They quit on the one yard line. They give up at the last-minute of the game, one foot from a winning touchdown.”
