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.

    A Friend's Greeting
    I'd like to be the sort of friend that
    you have been to me;
    I'd like to be the help that
    you've been always glad to be;

    I'd like to mean as much to you
    each minute of the day
    As you have meant, old friend of mine,
    to me along the way.

    I'd like to do the big things and
    the splendid things for you,
    To brush the gray from out your skies
    and leave them only blue;

    I'd like to say the kindly things that
    I so oft have heard,
    And feel that I could rouse your soul
    the way that mine you've stirred.

    I'd like to give you back the joy
    that you have given me,
    Yet that were wishing you a need
    I hope will never be;

    I'd like to make you feel as rich as I,
    who travel on
    Undaunted in the darkest hours with you to
    lean upon.

    I'm wishing at this time that I
    could but repay
    A portion of the gladness that
    you've strewn along my way;

    And could I have one wish this year,
    this only would it be:
    I'd like to be the sort of friend
    that you have been to me.

    ♥*´`*♥The Golden Chain Of Friendship♥*´`*♥
    Friendship is a golden chain,
    The links are friends so dear,
    And like a rare and precious jewel,
    It’s treasured more each year…

    It’s clasped together firmly,
    With love that’s deep and true,
    And it’s rich with happy memories,
    And fond recollections too…

    Time can’t destroy its beauty,
    For, as long as memory lives,
    Years can’t erase the pleasure,
    That the joy of friendship gives.

    For friendship is a precious gift,
    That can’t be bought or sold,
    But to have an understanding friend,
    Is worth far more than gold…

    And the golden chain of friendship,
    Is a strong and blessed tie,
    Binding kindred hearts togeth
    As the years go passing by.

    It takes more than caring
    To be a real friend;
    The nature of friendship;
    Requires a blend
    Of warmest compassion
    And love deep and true
    To reach and to comfort
    The way that you do.
    Because I can see
    That your kind of friendship
    Is priceless to me.
