Spring 2021 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment:

As I get ready to start the 5% Spring 2021 Challenge, I continue to suffer from sciatic pain and bursitis which definitely interferes with my motivation to do my regular exercise. Also, my furry walking partner has been suffering from an infected paw which means he can’t walk with me and our trips to the vet are taking up a lot of time. Additionally, I have been having pain ball and toes on my feet. However, 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 Spring challenge is:
1. Walk daily, at least 6 days a week.
2. Yoga class twice per week.
3. Stretch and foam roll daily before and after my walks.
4. Do a variety of strength training three days per week.

Spring 2021 5% Challenge Nutrition Plan:
My pledge for the Spring 2021 5% challenge is to achieve my weight loss goals. I plan to eat a whole food, plant-based diet at least 90% of the time, 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 70, widowed on November 12, 2013. I have three children, a grown daughter who has a 27 year old daughter and a 21 year old son; a grown son who has a son who is 23 and working in the woods as a logger, and I had one son who died 27 years ago at the age of 15+ in a downhill skiing accident. I also have one great granddaughter who is 2-1/2 years old. 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.

    ”Every minute someone leaves this world behind. We are all in “the line” without knowing it. We never know how many people are before us.
    We can not move to the back of the line.
    We can not step out of the line.
    We can not avoid the line.


    So while we wait in line -


    Make moments count.
    Make priorities.
    Make the time.
    Make your gifts known.
    Make a nobody feel like a somebody.
    Make your voice heard.
    Make the small things big.
    Make someone smile.
    Make the change.
    Make love.
    Make up.
    Make peace.
    Make sure to tell your people they are loved.
    Make sure to have no regrets.
    Make sure you are ready.”


    Just do it! And, do it now!
