Winter 2021 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment:

As I get ready to start the 5% Winter 2021 Challenge, I continue to suffer from sciatic pain and bursitis which definitely interferes with my motivation to do my regular exercise. I am also having pain in the 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 Winter challenge is:
1. Walk 30 – 45 minutes Monday, Wednesday and Friday; walk 45 - 60 minutes Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday; and take Sundays off from walking.
2. Attend Yoga class Monday, Wednesday and Friday for 60 minutes if the gyms open back up and, if not, practice a minimum of 15 minutes daily at home.
3. Stretch and foam roll daily for at least 10 minutes.
4. Do a variety of strength training workout videos on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Winter 2021 5% Challenge Nutrition Plan:
My pledge for the Winter 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 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.

    As simple as it sounds, we all must try to be the best person we can; by making the best choices, by making the most of the talents we've been given.
