I've been gone, but it's time to come back.

Just simple tracking and hopefully lots of support!

I need to exercise and stay healthy, which can be challenging as a teacher.

 

So, simple goals:

1. Meal prep breakfasts and lunches for the work week every Sunday.

2. Exercise daily. Anything counts - yoga, walking, body-weight. To help with this I signed up for the assassins' mini-challenge.

 

That's it - move and eat properly. I'm excited to be back!

I did box jumps, some negative pull-ups and wall push-ups for the mini-challenge yesterday,  plus two gonoodle dances with my class.

That tiny amount made me sore so I may go for some yoga this evening.

I prepped lunches and smoothies, but not breakfasts for this week. Not too bad, but I need to get that piece figured out.

Yesterday I didn't get any movement in. :( I worked late and was busy until bedtime. Work is crazy busy this week, but I still need to move!

I did do a 15 minute yoga session tonight though! It felt good to follow through with something, even a short something!

Tomorrow I'll try to get some strength in for the mini.

I definitely understand work being crazy busy. Is there something you can do while at work? Do you have stairs, or maybe you can do a quick walk around the building or something?

Great ideas, but unfortunately not as I'm a teacher and have my kids with me all day. I could maybe do some squats during lunch on days I don't have meetings though - the few kids in the room then will think I'm crazy, but oh well! I'll give that a try next week. Remembering will be the new challenge!

 

I got in some last minute squats last night and am hoping to go for a hike today! (Have to get grading done first though...)

Hey Welcome back :)

 

 

What if you make your squats part of your teaching?

Won't hurt the children to get a little movement after lunch, will it?

Of course you have to demonstrate ;)

I keep forgetting! Maybe I'll set some fun alarms and whenever they go off everyone has to get up and do X 10 times. Squats, jumping jacks, push-ups, etc. Once the kids have it down they will be able to jump up do the thing and go right back to work - big surprise for anyone observing me! Maybe we'll change the thing each month so they can really get the hang of it.

 

I went for another run/walk today after work with my husband. It felt good to go out after work, I never do that as it starts getting too dark. I need to get out there while I can!

Didn't do great this week, but I'm trying. Missed my run this morning, my running friend got sick and cancelled and I stayed in bed, but I helped my husband stack wood this afternoon and have plans for a run after work later this week.

Ran last Thursday and went for a hike today. Today was supposed to be a run but my husband got distracted by a new trail. Prepped lunches and smoothies for the week too!
