Summer 2017 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment:

As I get ready to start the 5% Summer 2017 Challenge, I continue to suffer from sciatic pain and hip bursitis after over a year and a half which has definitely interfered with my motivation to do my regular exercise. I have had some shots which only temporarily relieved the pain so now I am trying to establish a habit of stretching and strengthening to help alleviate the pain. I am determined to persevere and get back into my regular fitness routine and show the scale who is boss.. My exercise plan for the Summer 5% challenge is:
1. Monday/Wednesday/Friday - 30 minutes or longer cardio (walking preferably), 10 minutes or more stretching and strengthening the IT band area, and 60 minute yoga class.
2. Tuesday/Thursday - 30 minutes or longer cardio (walking preferably), 10 minutes or more stretching and strengthening the IT band area, and 40 minutes or more strength.
3. Saturday and Sunday- 10 minutes cardio (preferably walking) and 10 minutes stretching and strengthening the IT band area.

Summer 2017 5% Challenge Nutrition Plan:
My pledge for the Summer 2017 5% challenge is to achieve my weight loss goals. I plan to eat clean at least 75% of the time by limiting processed foods and sugar. I will eat more vegetables and fruits and less white carbs. 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 67, widowed on November 12, 2013. I have three children, a grown daughter who has a 24 year old daughter and an 18 year old son; a grown son who has a son who is 20 and working in the woods as a logger, and I had one son who died 24 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 BITS OF THOUGHTS ABOUT PARKING emoticon emoticon emoticon

    "Always look at the brighter side of things..whenever a car is stolen,
    it creates another parking place"

    "One of the best bargains you can get these days is parking what's left on the other fellow's dime"

    "A hick town is where you can park as long as you want to, but don't want to."

    "Once it was ambition that kept people on the move. Now it's NO PARKING signs.
