Day 2 into the 90 Day challenge and I feel like things have been just the same. I am going to work, coming home, cooking, cleaning, etc. But there is one difference. I have made movement a priority. Taking baby steps like walking the track when I take my students out to recess, walking the dog instead of just letting her out in the yard. I have always liked being active. I feel like I am typically fairly active in my daily life. But it is the above and beyond that I really need to focus on. Once I get home from my day at school, all I want to do is sit down because I have been running with my students all day long. My day usually runs from 6:30 am to about 6:30 pm, then I have another couple of hours of paper work at night. If I would just make it a priority to spend even a few more minutes moving, I know I would see better results and feel better in the long run.
It's only been a short time, but I feel like there has been an internal attitude change. I've worked hard to plan ahead with my meals, especially packing my lunch. The real challenge starts Sunday, at my initial weigh-in. Then the fun really begins!!! The intensity will really pick up! I am up to the challenge!!
