Winter 2019 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment:

As I get ready to start the 5% Winter 2019 Challenge, I continue to suffer from sciatic pain and bursitis which has definitely interfered with my motivation to do my regular exercise. 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 Winter challenge is:
1. Walk daily at least 5 out of 7 days a minimum of 30 minutes
2. Pilates class one day per week for 75 minutes
3. Yoga class two days per week for 75 minutes
4. Strength training two days per week for 30 minutes.

Winter 2019 5% Challenge Nutrition Plan:
My pledge for the Winter 2019 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 68, widowed on November 12, 2013. I have three children, a grown daughter who has a 26 year old daughter and a 19 year old son; a grown son who has a son who is 21 and working in the woods as a logger, and I had one son who died 25 years ago at the age of 15+ in a downhill skiing accident. I also have one great granddaughter who is 3 months 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 rvin 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.
