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.

    Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400.
    It carries over no balance from day to day.
    Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance
    you failed to use during the day.
    What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course?
    Each of us has such a bank. It's name is TIME.
    Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds.
    Every night it writes off as lost,
    whatever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose.
    It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft.
    Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day.
    If you fail to use the day's deposits, the loss is yours.
    There is no drawing against "tomorrow."
    You must live in the present on today's deposits.
    Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success!

    Love yourself more tomorrow than you did today. Never give life to the thought that it is ever acceptable to stop learning or to stop teaching. Dan Stotridge

    ~ emoticon ~Interesting things about Friends and Friendship~ emoticon ~
    Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something
    you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship,
    you really haven't learned anything.
    ~~~Muhammad Ali~~~
    emoticon emoticon emoticon BEST FRIENDS emoticon emoticon emoticon
    They know you are crazy, and still choose to be seen with you in public.
    Life's journey is easier when you hear a friends footsteps behind you.
    Friends are like your backbone. They are always there when you need support.

    The most memorable people in life will be the friends
    who loved you when you weren't the most lovable.
    If you really want your friends to remember you, give them something cheap.

    A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart,
    and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.
    emoticon emoticon Does this describe your friends? emoticon emoticon

    ==== emoticon ====AND IMAGINE==== emoticon ====
    Recall the things that have held you back.
    And imagine how you now can get beyond them.
    Think of the problems that have frustrated you so.
    And imagine how you can now rise above them.
    Look at how far you've come.
    And imagine how far you can now go.
    Think of all that you've learned.
    And imagine what you can now do with that knowledge.
    Consider all you've done in the past year.
    And imagine what you'll now be able to do.
    You're now in a better position than ever to imagine the very best.
    And what you can imagine will lead to what you can be.
    ~~Ralph Marston~~
