Spring 2017 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment:

As I get ready to start the 5% Spring 2017 Challenge, I continue to suffer from sciatic pain and bursitis after over a year which has definitely interfered with my motivation to do my regular exercise. I have had some shots which only temporarily relieved the pain so now I am trying to establish a habit of stretching and strengthening to help alleviate the pain. 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 Spring challenge is:
1. Monday/Wednesday/Friday - 30 minutes or longer cardio, 10 minutes or more stretching and strengthening the IT band area, and 60 minute yoga class.
2. Tuesday/Thursday - 30 minutes or longer cardio, 10 minutes or more stretching and strengthening the IT band area, and 40 minutes or more strength.
3. Saturday - 30 minutes cardio and 10 minutes stretching and strengthening the IT band area.
4. Sunday - 20 minute walk and 10 minutes stretching and strengthening the IT band area.

Spring 2017 5% Challenge Nutrition Plan:
My pledge for the Spring 2017 5% 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.

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.

    Don't ever let somebody tell you...
    You can't do something.
    You got a dream...
    You gotta protect it.
    People can't do somethin' themselves,
    they wanna tell you you can't do it.
    If you want somethin',
    Go Get It. Period.
    ~Quote From the movie The Pursuit of Happiness

    Weight loss is a journey, so tackle it in stages.
    Some may get there very quick, while others may take ages.
    Weight loss is a journey, some take the stopping train.
    And they get off at the station, and then get back on again.
    While other lucky people seem to travel by express.
    With no apparent effort, each week they weigh in less.
    For some of us, the journey too often seems uphill.
    We never seem to get that far, struggle though we will.
    Weight loss is a journey, that anyone can go.
    But as you travel on your way, there's something you should know.
    Losing weight is a journey, that's different for everyone.
    Some are happy to stroll along, while others need to run!
    If you want to complete this journey, then forget about the rest.
    Each of you must travel the way that suits you best.
    As long as you believe it, you WILL get there some day!
