Let’s Get Physical

You wake up before the sun rises and you get home when the
sun is setting. When do you have wholesale MLB jerseys time to work out? There Emery is just not enough
time in the day to teach, Inspirations grade, plan and organize your classroom for the next
day. I barley have enough energy to cook dinner and often find myself trying to
find a healthy alternative to cooking. Did I mention that I don’t have any
kids? Trying to imagine my fellow colleagues who are 10 years older with kids
who not only need feeding but have extracurricular activities.
I’ve read
recently from other bloggers they Down! are no longer staying past their cheap NFL jerseys 3:30 obligation.
Instead, leaving when their contracted hours Aktuelle are up. This doesn’t mean they
care about their students any less but how successful can you be if you are not
taking care of yourself?
This
summer is where wholesale MLB jerseys I am Awards implementing my change for the future school year. Making
sure that I work out on a regular basis. This should help continue into the hectic
school year ahead. I already have a healthy diet that HaCkEr has become part of my
lifestyle. Be on the lookout for smoothie recipes, salads, quinoa dishes and
even desert alternatives.
I would love to know
what you do to stay fit during the cheap jerseys school year.

Looking forward to no longer passing up those delicious birthday
treats. 🙂

  1. In our passion of traveling, adventuring, hiking, climbing cliffs and mountains, scuba diving, etc., we always make sure that we’re healthy and fit. When the body gives out, it’s all over.

    So, every afternoon, after our work, we always make it a point to go to the gym and spend one and a half hours working out. Having a healthy body always feels great!

  2. One of the single best pieces of advice I ever received was to run every single day. I used to run every once in a blue moon, but when I tried daily running within 1 week it had changed my entire mental and emotional state. It’s good to take some breaks, at least a day or two off per week to rest your knees. But regular aerobic exercise has a profound effect on both mind and body. I’ve discovered that at the times when I am most stressed out and feel like I have the least time for running (i.e. half the school year), I actually need it the most. The endorphins do amazing things for your confidence, happiness, and clarity of thought, all those tools that make you effective in front of 20-30 tiny humans all day. I’ve found that length of run is way less important than frequency. Even 1 mile (~10 min) daily will do a ton. 3 miles is my favorite. Also I have up and down days so I give myself permission to alternate walking and jogging as much as I feel like, and I’ve never had a problem. I end up going farther because I know I can walk for a while if I start to feel overheated etc. then after a while of walking I start feeling like jogging again.

    Anyone who says they can’t find time to jog is misunderstanding. Do the 10 minute run if you need to. If you add in changing clothes we’re talking 20 min total. If you can’t find 20 min to do that you’re either an investment banker, a single parent of young children, or your making excuses. Got 1 hour worth of grading to do an 1 hour before bedtime? Do the 10 minute run and grade less. Your kids will be better off I promise.

  3. Towards the end of last year, our school started a new healthy school initiative with teachers. On Tuesdays and THursdays–unless we have meetings– we are allowed to use our after school time to work out if we stay at school and do it. The only problem with this is that there’s always something to do. Our kids leave at three so I tried to get myself organized for the next day, packing away any grading for at home (hah!) and cleaning up, within fifteen minutes so that I was dressed and ready to work out at 3:15. The really good things about our school is that most of our teachers and staff are really health orientated and so many people work out on their own so it’s easy to feel the pressure to participate (in a good way). Also, when I get home I feel happier and less stressed from the day so that playing with my two-year old is more fun. Then she goes to bed and I’m not trying to convince myself to get up off the couch. I can sit there and grade instead. 🙂
