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.

    Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. A smile. A world of optimism and hope. A 'you can do it' when things are tough.

    emoticon “Every time I imagine a garden in an architectural setting, it turns into a magical place. I think of gardens I have seen, that I believe I have seen, that I long to see, surrounded by simple walls, columns, arcades or the facades of buildings – sheltered places of great intimacy where I want to stay for a long time. ”

    emoticon emoticon Mix it up – January is the month when people start a routine of running, going to the gym or include some form of exercise in their weekly routines. But beware of getting into a rut. Aim to try a new workout each month, and schedule your weekly exercise sessions in your diary.

    emoticon Phone Fitness – How much time do you spend on the phone, whether it is on work or social calls even Facebook. The chances are it’s hours a day. And this is usually spent sat on your bottom! Make the decision to take phone calls while standing up, walking around and even doing light exercises such as squats or lunges. You’ll burn extra calories without taking time out of your day, and your posture and back will thank you too!

    emoticon Pre Plan – Preparation and planning is the key to success when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Use your diary to note all your workouts. Olympic athletes always keep a training diary, to ensure they complete their weekly workouts and see what type of training was most successful.
