Hola from Costa Rica! :)

I'm sitting in an Internet Cafe looking at the sunset out the window while typing this. We went on a fabulous hike today, through and along a river, then on a dirt road through jungle and a bamboo forest. Earlier today I went on a hike where we saw monkeys and two of them had babies with them. The babies rode on their backs and then would climb around on their own when they stopped. Some of them were hanging upside down and eating. Cool to see them jumping from tree to tree.

I'll try to catch up on these posts as I can.

They're closing now so I've gotta' go.

Adios and Aloha!

Sleep:
woke at 4:30am for temp. & pee
up at 6am to run

Food:
1 watermelon for breakfast
15 bananas for lunch
Dinner: small avocado, small head of cabbage, large tomato, some baby carrots

I ate dinner rushed 'cause I wanted to finish it before we left, rather than eating it at the Internet Cafe. I think it will still digest well enough though - hopefully. Heh, we'll find out!

Exercise:
1 hour run/walk in morning breakfast & before it gets too hot :) ~30min. give or take running in that
calestenics before lunch: 10 jump squats, followed by 150 squats, slight rest followed by 3 or 4 sucky jump lunges, followed by 10 jump squats, slight rest followed by about 5 or 6 more sucky jump lunges LOL
Did 10 pushups after dinner, just before leaving for town

Exercise:
sort-of run/walk thingy in the morning
4 or 5 pushups or so later in the day - still tired from travel, etc.
Hard to run with dusty roads for me - when cars go by dust comes up & I want to cover my face in order to keep the mucus reaction down - can't breathe well through hankercheif or something else when exercising.... I also haven't been fueling myself as much lately, so felt that too
I figure I'll try the beach tomorrow - wear my Tevas 'cause it's got sand in places, large pebbles/small rocks in others and large rough rocks in yet others...

Detox:

4 peeled broccolli stems from stuff packed for airplane for later snack

We went to a neighbor town to get food 'cause we heard there was a farmer's market of sorts there. We missed the market 'cause it ended at 11am, but it was still good to get groceries there 'cause the market there stocks up during the farmer's market. LOL They probably needed to stock up again after we left... I haven't been as hungry so I got the least amount of food. I got:
3 small watermelons
6 cantelopes
4 large cucumbers
1 large lilikoi (passion fruit)
1 small cabbage
Which cost 6,143 colones, which is abot $12 - not bad, eh?

Just adding in here from Costa Rica that I made it to the beach with my hubby today for a while, which was really nice. I took another video with my cell phone of the beach too. I figured out how to do a little better quality, so it looks better. I'll post it here when I'm back home.

I should get some videos of here too... will get the beach & try to get howler monkeys too.

K, bye for now!

LOL yep - still from da' avocado and older salty stuff... I was semi-fasting, so that helped things too.

Slept in and did mini-fast 'cause of the gas and constipation last night and BMs early this morning. Interesting how it turned out to be right in the hours the hygienists say elimination happens: between 3:30am and noon. At a certain point…

Went to the beach & took short video from cell phone (doesn't view very well in Firefox, but works in IE, didn't test on anything else):
