Spring 2020 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment:

As I get ready to start the 5% Spring 2020 Challenge, I continue to suffer from sciatic pain and bursitis which has definitely interferes 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 Spring challenge is:
1. Walk daily at least 5 out of 7 days a minimum of 30 minutes
2. Yoga class three days per week for 75 minutes
3. Strength training two days per week for 30 minutes.

Spring 2020 5% Challenge Nutrition Plan:
My pledge for the Spring 2020 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 69, 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 26 years ago at the age of 15+ in a downhill skiing accident. I also have one great granddaughter who is 19 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.

    Hallelujah! It's Friday! What a blessing!
    Here are some funny church bulletin postings.

    Mrs. Jones remains in the hospital and needs blood donors for more transfusions.
    She also is having trouble sleeping and requests tapes of Pastor Nelson's sermons.

    The Choir director invites any member of the congregation who enjoys sinning to join the choir.

    The ladies of the church have cast off clothing of every kind.
    They may be seen in the church basement on Friday afternoon.

    Our new associate minister unveiled the church's new tithing campaign
    slogan last Sunday: I upped my pledge - up yours!

    A new cookbook is being compiled by the ladies of the church.
    Please submit your favorite recipe with a short antidote for it.

    Ladies don't forget the rummage sale. It's a good chance to get rid
    of those things not worth keeping around the house. Don't forget your husbands.

    Tip of the day: How do they make holy water? They boil the hell out of it!

    Enjoy your weekend!
