Summer 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment:

As I get ready to start the 5% Summer Challenge, I have been continuing to suffer from sciatic pain which has limited my fitness activities, and I am starting this challenge with the scale being higher than when I finished my last 5% challenge. However, I am determined to persevere and show the scale who is boss. I am upping my exercise goals for the Summer5% challenge. My plan is:
1. Walk daily, 30 to 60 minutes
2. 60 minute yoga class two to three times weekly
3. 60 minute Enhance Fitness class three times weekly which includes some strength

Summer 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 Summer 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 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.

    I'll go out there and make my mistakes. I'll fall down,
    get hurt, cry, laugh, love, and get back up.
    I'll stand on the highest mountaintop and go into the deepest caverns.
    I'll roam across the world, visit the moon and swim in outer space.
    I'll let my imagination run wild and let my spirit soar.
    Why?
    Because when my life flashes before my eyes in those final moments,
    I want to have something worthwhile to watch, with plenty of love and laughter,
    good times and bad. I don't want to regret a thing and I plan not to.
    Remember, it's not usually the things you do that you regret,
    it's the things you don't do and leave unsaid. Laugh out loud.
    Cry in the rain. Love with all your heart and soul. Get hurt.
    Tell the truth. Go crazy. But never forget that you only get one shot.
    One shot at this day, one shot at this minute.
    One shot at this age. One shot at life.
    So make sure your life is one you will enjoy watching in your final moments.

    Everyone says love hurts, but that isn't true.
    Loneliness hurts.
    Rejection hurts.
    Losing someone hurts.
    Envy hurts.
    Everyone gets these things confused with love,
    but in reality love is the only thing
    in this world that covers up all the pain
    and makes someone feel wonderful again.
    Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt.
