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 ...

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 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.

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why its called the present.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon ~~"A SMILE"~~ emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive
without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment,
but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it,
and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it.
Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours,
as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.
