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.

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.

    “For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case,
    too early to be whoever you want to be.
    There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want.
    You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing.
    We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it.
    And I hope you see things that startle you.
    I hope you feel things you never felt before.
    I hope you meet people with a different point of view.
    I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not,
    I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”
    ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald ~
