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.

    emoticon emoticon FOR MOTHER'S DAY~~JUST A MOM emoticon emoticon

    She cant stand it when people say, "You're JUST a mom?"
    Yes, she is JUST A MOM!!
    That makes her an alarm clock, cook, maid, waitress,
    teacher, nurse, referee, handyman, security officer,
    photographer, counselor, chauffeur, event planner,
    hairdresser, personal assistant, & an ATM machine.
    She scares away the boogieman. She doesn't get paid holidays,
    sick pay or days off. She works DAY & NIGHT.
    She's on call 24/7 for the rest of her life.
    She's 'JUST A MOM'!!!
    She is a Mom to someone or to many and she would
    do ANYTHING on this planet for them!
    She's..... 'JUST A MOM"!!.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the MOTHER'S,
    the Mother's you have, and all the Mother's you know! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    MOTHER'S DAY

    You can see it in their eyes,
    in tender hugs and long good-byes,
    a love that only moms, sons and daughters know.

    You can see it in their smiles,
    through passing years and changing styles,
    a friendship that continually seems to grow.

    You can see it in their lives,
    the joy each one of them derives,
    in just knowing that the other one is there...

    To care and to understand,
    lend an ear or hold a hand,
    and to celebrate the memories they share.
