Spring 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment:

Consistency is my number one exercise goal. Therefore, my plan for the spring 5% challenge is to do a minimum of 15 minutes of exercise every day, while aiming to consistently do 60 minutes, or more, a minimum of 6 days each week. My exercise plan is: Monday walking and yoga; Tuesday walking or elliptical and strength; Wednesday walking and yoga; Thursday walking or elliptical and strength; Friday walking and yoga; Saturday walking or hiking; Sunday rest day but active. My goal is to cover 7,500 steps daily, or an average of 7,500 steps every day.

Spring 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 Spring 5% Challenge is to make this the time to achieve my goals while continuing to heal from the loss of my best friend and husband on November 12, 2013. 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 will turn 65 in May, widowed on November 12, 2013. I have three children, a grown daughter who has a 22 year old daughter and a 16 year old son; a grown son who has a son who will be 18 at the end of April; and I had one son who died 22 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.

Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave and enjoy each moment
as it comes. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, retrace your steps
and go back to the purest place in your heart - where hope lives... and you'll find
your way again. - ❤ॐ❤ Everwood

THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND THE VERY GOOD QUOTES YOU LEFT ME. I just haven't been spending as much time Sparkin' as usual. I log on every day, though. We came home from FL and have lots to do in the Carriage House and now we are at the Lake House (both belong to son and wife) with much more to do. I do a lot of the cooking for 7 of us and over the week-end there were 11. I like to do it, but find I run out of steam.
Haven't been exercising due to pain from arthritis, but now it has warmed up enough that I think I can get in pool next week. Water aerobics really do keep me limber.
I am about 8 lbs. above goal and really do want to get them off. I just keep bouncing with those 8 lbs.
Once again, thanks for keeping in touch!!!

If one day you feel like crying,
call me..
I don't promise
I'll make you laugh
But I can cry with you.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
If one day you want to run away,
Don't be afraid to
call me
I don't promise to ask you to stop.
But I can run with you.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
If one day you don't want to listen to anyone.
call me...
I promise to be there for you,
and I promise to be very quiet.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
But if one day you try to
call me.....
And there is no answer,
Come fast to see me.
Perhaps I may need you.
