Fall 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment:

I have a tendency to over commit on exercise so for this Fall 5% challenge I am going to make it simple: Do a minimum of 10 minutes of exercise every day, and aim to consistently do 60 minutes, or more, of exercise a minimum of 6 days per week. My exercise will include a variety of: yoga, aqua zumba, qigong, walking, and strength. My goal is to cover 7,500 steps daily, or an average of 7,500 steps every day.

Fall 5% Nutrition Plan:

For the Fall 5% challenge I will be following the Weight Watchers diet plan while aiming to eat clean, limit processed foods, and limit sugar.
My pledge for the Fall 5% Challenge is to make this the time to achieve my goals while healing 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.

I will STAY FOCUSED and NEVER GIVE UP!

Personal Information:
My name is Barbara, aka Barbie. I live in Roseburg, Oregon. I will turn 64 in May, recently widowed on November 12, 2013. I have three children, a grown daughter who has a 21 year old daughter and a 15 year old son; a grown son who has a son who will be 17 at the end of April; and I had one son who died 21 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 learning how to fill my days.

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.

I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month.”
~ Harlan Miller

One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day. Don’t clean it up too quickly.”

There's nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child.--Erma Bombeck

Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we’re here for something else besides ourselves.”

He who has no Christmas in his heart will never find Christmas under a tree.”

My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?--Bob Hope

Of course, this is the season to be jolly, but it is also a good time to be thinking about those who aren't.--Helen Valentine

Unless we make Christmas an occasion to share our blessings, all the snow in Alaska won't make it "white".--Bing Crosby
