Fall 2020 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment:

As I get ready to start the 5% SFall 2020 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 Fall 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 75 minutes.
3. Stretch daily for at least 10 minutes.
4. Do a variety of strength training workout videos on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Fall 2020 5% Challenge Nutrition Plan:
My pledge for the Fall 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 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.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon September emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    September brings fall, with the leaves falling, changing to colors of red,
    orange, gold, yellow, and brown. It brings cooler temperatures, shorter days,
    as we start to wear long-sleeved shirts, bring out the sweatshirts we've had
    packed away for months, and the jackets we wished we did not have to wear
    for awhile. We smell fall in the air, as we the pick the vegetables from
    the gardens, & the plants we bring in before the frost.
    We see flocks of geese traveling to warmer weather, and enjoy watching
    the children playing in the leaves, as they laugh, smile, & have fun.
