2015 Summer 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment:

Consistency is my number one exercise goal. Therefore, my plan for the summer 5% challenge is to do a minimum of 15 minutes of exercise every day,. My aim is for 30 to 60 minutes of cardio 5 days a week, 15 to 30 minutes of strength 2 days a week, and 60 minutes of yoga 2 to 3 days a week. Saturday and Sunday will be rest days but active. My goal is to cover 7,500 steps daily, or an average of 7,500 steps every day.

Summer 5% Nutrition Plan:

I am currently on a fairly restricted diet due to tummy issues. I plan to stay on this as long as necessary before slowly re-introducing foods back into my diet and ultimately I will be following the Weight Watchers nutrition plan, but also aiming to eat clean, limiting processed foods and sugar.

My pledge for the Ssummer 5% Challenge is to make this the time to achieve my goals while continuing to heal from the loss of my best friend and husband on November 12, 2013. I am here to inspire, support and motivate others in their journey while receiving the same on my journey.

On my team page I will daily record my exercise and Living the Good Life points, and I will weigh and record my weight weekly. I will check with my team at least three times per week. I will visit team members' pages and blogs as much as I can.

What can I do in 8 weeks?

Personal Information:
My name is Barbara, aka Barbie. I live in Roseburg, Oregon. I am 65, widowed on November 12, 2013. I have three children, a grown daughter who has a 22 year old daughter and a 16 year old son; a grown son who has a son who is 18 and just graduated high school and entered the work force for the first time, and I had one son who died 22 years ago at the age of 15+ in a downhill skiing accident. I retired just a couple of months before my husband became so ill, so now that he is gone, I am still learning how to fill my days, and fix meals for one.

Other Information:
I got a dog after my husband's death, a Padderdale Terrier (looks like a miniature black lab), named Marv in memory of my husband who had a collection of Marvin the Martian things.
I enjoy reading, scrapbooking, card making, quilting, and knitting. I am learning how to take care of the lawn and garden which were Bill's pride and joy. I love the sunshine and being outdoors.

Quote by Coach Nicole: Exercise is not a means to an end. It's a tool for living your best life.
