Biggest Loser Spring 2018 Challenge Sapphire Ravishing Ravens

As I get ready to start the Spring BLC, I continue to suffer from sciatic pain, hip bursitis, and low back pain after over two years which has definitely interfered with my motivation to do my regular exercise. I have had some shots which only temporarily relieved the pain, and I am still going through Physical Therapy which has been somewhat successful. 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 2018 BLC challenge is:

1. 30 minute walk daily 5 to 7 days per week
2. Daily 30 minutes stretching and strengthening exercises
given to me by PT, including any PT exercises given
3. 60 minute yoga class twice per week.
4. 60 minute Mindful Movement class two days per week.
5. 15 to 30 minutes of strength two days per week.
5. Minimum of 10 minutes movement on the weekends


Spring 2018 BLC Challenge Nutrition Plan:
My pledge for the Spring 2018 BLC challenge is to achieve my weight loss goals. My nutrition plan during this challenge will be 5 freggies daily, limiting sugar intake, limited white carbs, and make healthy choices including foods touted to be helpful in getting my cholesterol to a healthier number. Water is a minimum of 80 ounces daily.. 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 other achievements, 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 25 year old daughter and a 19 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 25 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 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.

    This Part FOUR of a “To Be Continued Wonderful Woman” message that will be completed by the end of the month. I hope you enjoy it.

    It's Wonderful ~ Woman ~ Wednesday!
    ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸♥ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ To my very strong and powerful friend`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ reading this message right now `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ The dominant force in our whole body`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ Is the foremost guiding standard which guides us`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ That which we call the “mind”.`*•.¸`*•.¸

    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ However, contrary to popular belief,`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ It is not located within our head.`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ It is firmly lodged in the middle of our breast.`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ The “real mind” and all of its “knowing” `*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ Resides deep within our heart. `*•.¸`*•.¸

    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ We must decide to be an indomitable sleuth, `*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ To uncover the cleverly disguised untruth.`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ We must summon the courage to face the plight`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ To probe, discover, and bring forth the truth`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ Out of the darkness and into the light.`*•.¸`*•.¸

    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ Once we do this, we are able to clearly see the illusion; `*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ All the smoke and mirrors strategically placed to distract`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸And we clearly see through our mind’s delusion`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ Now that the truth is exposed we will clearly see`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ The way that things are meant to be.`*•.¸`*•.¸
