Winter 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment:

As I get ready to start the 5% Winter Challenge, I have been suffering from sciatic pain which has limited my fitness activities, and I am starting this challenge with the scale being higher than when I finished the Fall 5% challenge. However, I am determined to persevere and show the scale who is boss. I am upping my exercise goals for the Winter 5% challenge. My plan is:
1. Walk 60 minutes daily
2. 60 minute yoga class twice ...

However, I am determined to persevere and show the scale who is boss. I am upping my exercise goals for the Winter 5% challenge. My plan is:
1. Walk 60 minutes daily
2. 60 minute yoga class twice weekly
3. 30 minutes strength three times weekly
Winter 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 Winter 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 65, widowed on November 12, 2013. I have three children, a grown daughter who has a 23 year old daughter and a 16 year old son; a grown son who has a son who is 18 and just graduated from high school and entered the work force for the first time, 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.

emoticon emoticon emoticon ~~I HOPE~~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

I hope that one day you buy every pretty dress you´ve ever wanted.
I hope you wear them and dance barefoot in summer and laugh.
I hope you smile at all the little things, like flowers, the wind blowing in your face. raindrops,
the smell of fresh cut grass and the laughter of children.
I hope you get that tattoo you´ve always wanted. I hope you learn to speak French Fluently.
I hope you go to Paris and NYC and get lost, and you will be found.
I hope you never stop singing, even when people tell you that you can´t – in fact,
especially then, that´s when I hope you´ll sing the loudest.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
I hope you buy a bracelet everywhere you go,
or something you´ll always remember that place, until your whole arm is filled with them.
I hope you Love God with all your heart. I hope you stop beating yourself up
about everything that´s out of your control.
I hope you have the guts to speak up when something is important to you.
I hope you step out of your comfort zone.
I hope you fall insanely in love with someone unexpected.
I hope you forget about your scars – inside and out –
and in the middle of all this strange and beautiful world you learn to be happy.

emoticon emoticon I hope you have a Sensational Sunday! emoticon emoticon

“Once in a while, amidst all your bad days, you’ll have a good day. A great day even.
Make sure you remember those days. Keep them safely in your pockets,
maybe even in a jar on your desk because you need to know that there are and will be
better days. You need to remember how on those days you felt warm inside,
like you’ve just drunk a hot cup of tea; like a small fire was ignited inside of you.
Hold on to that warmth. And never let it go.”

emoticon emoticon Have a very, very warm Friday, hold on to it & enjoy it! emoticon emoticon
