Well hellllooo there my lovely friends!
How was your week? Hopefully not too wild and crazy...mine managed to be a bit more hectic than I planned, so a few of my workouts had to be cut short. However, no matter how hectic, I always prioritize time for fitness. Even if it's 15 minutes, it does my physical and mental health plenty of good. I sleep better, have an appetite, can work through any frustrations of the week (not that I ever have those while working with third graders...she said sarcastically), and feel better to get my blood pumping.
Whether you take a 20 minute walk after dinner or swing into the YMCA for half an hour during your lunch break, making time to workout can be and should be a priority. I've even done some before-school workouts, but I will NOT sacrifice my sleep for a workout. If I can't get 7-8 hours, then I won't get up early. The body needs the sleep more than it needs the exercise.
Sunday- rainy day+wonky back=total day off
