Winter 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment:

As I get ready to start the 5% Winter Challenge, I have been suffering from sciatic pain which has limited my fitness activities, and I am starting this challenge with the scale being higher than when I finished the Fall 5% challenge. However, I am determined to persevere and show the scale who is boss. I am upping my exercise goals for the Winter 5% challenge. My plan is:
1. Walk 60 minutes daily
2. 60 minute yoga class twice ...

However, I am determined to persevere and show the scale who is boss. I am upping my exercise goals for the Winter 5% challenge. My plan is:
1. Walk 60 minutes daily
2. 60 minute yoga class twice weekly
3. 30 minutes strength three times weekly
Winter 5% Nutrition Plan:
I have been following the Weight Watchers nutrition plan, but also aiming to eat clean, limiting processed foods and sugar.
My pledge for the Winter 5% Challenge is to make this the time to achieve my goals. 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 65, widowed on November 12, 2013. I have three children, a grown daughter who has a 23 year old daughter and a 16 year old son; a grown son who has a son who is 18 and just graduated from high school and entered the work force for the first time, 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.
