Fall 2016 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment:

As I get ready to start the 5% Fall 2016 Challenge, I have been suffering from sciatic pain and bursitis for nearly a year now which has definitely interfered with my motivation to do my regular exercise. However, I recently received two shots for the bursitis which has helped immensely so I am determined to persevere and get back into my regular fitness routine and show the scale who is boss.. My exercise plan for the Fall challenge is:
1. Walk daily at least 5 out of 7 days a minimum of 30 minutes
2. 60 minute yoga class twice weekly
3. 60 minute Enhance Fitness class three times weekly
4. Strength training 30 minutes twice weekly
Fall 2016 5% Challenge Nutrition Plan:
My pledge for the Fall 2016 %% challenge is to achieve my weight loss goals. I plan to eat clean at least 75% of the time by limiting processed foods and sugar. I will eat more vegetables and fruits and less white carbs. 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.

I will STAY FOCUSED and NEVER GIVE UP!

Personal Information:
My name is Barbara, aka Barbie. I live in Roseburg, Oregon. I am 66, widowed on November 12, 2013. I have three children, a grown daughter who has a 23 year old daughter and a 17 year old son; a grown son who has a son who is 19 and working in the woods as a logger, and I had one son who died 23 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.

    Love your goodie and your note, Barb! Thanks so very, very much! It is so true, and the very reason that winter is my second favorite season of the year. I love the serenity and sheer beauty of Mother Nature as she slumbers.

    Wednesday quote
    Work hard for what you want because it won't come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive

    I made myself a snowball emoticon
    As perfect as could be. emoticon
    I thought I'd keep it as a pet, emoticon
    and let it sleep with me. emoticon
    I made it some pajamas, emoticon
    And a pillow for its head. emoticon
    Then last night it ran away, emoticon
    But first,...it wet the bed. emoticon

    This made me smile....hope it made you smile too!!
