Spring 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment:

Consistency is my number one exercise goal. Therefore, my plan for the spring 5% challenge is to do a minimum of 15 minutes of exercise every day, while aiming to consistently do 60 minutes, or more, a minimum of 6 days each week. My exercise plan is: Monday walking and yoga; Tuesday walking or elliptical and strength; Wednesday walking and yoga; Thursday walking or elliptical and strength; Friday walking and yoga; Saturday walking or hiking; Sunday rest day but active. My goal is to cover 7,500 steps daily, or an average of 7,500 steps every day.

Spring 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 Spring 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.

I will STAY FOCUSED and NEVER GIVE UP!

Personal Information:
My name is Barbara, aka Barbie. I live in Roseburg, Oregon. I will turn 65 in May, 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 will be 18 at the end of April; 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.

People will hate you, rate you, shake you and break you.
But how strong you stand is what makes you.
