My pledge for the Summer 5% Challenge is to make summer 2014 my time to achieve my goals while healing 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.

My pledge for the Summer 5% Challenge is to make summer 2014 my time to achieve my goals while healing 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.

Summer 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment:

I have a tendency to over commit on exercise so for this summer 5% challenge I am going to make it simple. Consistently do 60 minutes of exercise a minimum of 6 days per week. My exercise will include a variety of: yoga, aqua zumba, qigong, walking, biking and strength. My goal is to cover 10,000 steps daily, or an average of 10,000 steps every day.

Summer 5% Nutrition Plan:

For the summer 5% challenge I will be following the Weight Watchers diet plan, lessen sugar intake by substituting fruit for the less healthy junk food sweets, increase my vegetables to 3 per day most days, and eat minimal processed foods.

I think that tracking is very important for success and I haven't been doing that so well, so my commitment for the summer challenge is to track even if it is just writing down everything I eat most days.

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 64 in May, recently widowed on November 12, 2013. I have three children, a grown daughter who has a 21 year old daughter and a 15 year old son; a grown son who has a son who will be 17 at the end of April; and one son who died 21 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 learning how to fill my days.

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.

THank for the flame goodie, yes we must keep the spark ignited throughout our journey. It's up to each of us to do so with our own spark, but support from friends like you keep it fanned & ignited.
Have a Wonderful Wednesday.
