It's time to get back to taking care of YOU! Back to school also means getting organized and making priorities and not just fitting in your time to exercise but making that a regular part of your day.
Just like your kids need to prepare the night before and pack bags, lunches or plan your schedule if you home school, add your day to that routine and pack your gym bag, plan your fitness routine, your meals, whatever you have to do to be ready to just go.
One of the things that used to hold me back was the idea that I could not leave my house messy, dishes in the sink, laundry on the couch, etc... well guess what, those things will be there when I get back from my workout. Now I make fitness a priority because it makes me more productive and happier the rest of the day.
I do teach fitness classes, this is my job, however I have to fit in fitness for me that does not require me to plan or think about anyone else. Believe it or not, it's harder than you think to fit in exercise when this is what I do for a living. I make it a priority by going to a different gym, where people aren't looking at me as their instructor, I run local trails, and join outdoor bootcamp and yoga classes. Because anytime I'm doing any form of exercise I'm giving myself the gift of happiness and health.
Are you on board, let's do this!
