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.

“Remember, life is a journey. If you got everything you wanted all at once there'd be no point to living. Enjoy the ride, and in the end you'll see these 'setbacks' as giant leaps forward, only you couldn't see the bigger picture in the moment. Remain calm, all is within reach; all you have to do is show up every day, stay true to your path and you will surely find the treasure you seek.”
