Shifting priorities - my most important syllabus

Saturday, January 19, 2013

Every semester I carefully plot out my weekly schedule, classes, labs regularly scheduled meetings, conferences, etc.

I put together my syllabus for each course making sure to cover all the essential topics.

The one thing I have always left off my scheduling is fitness time. Not this semester. Last semester I did pretty well making sure I got to the fitness center every day but this coming semester is going to be more of a challenge. However, I am committed to shifting my priorities and planning around my fitness schedule rather than vice-versa.

Each morning now starts off with "Fitness 101". The syllabus lists the course learning goal as "Maintaining a healthy fitness routine and healthy eating". The class schedule calls for alternating running, elliptical trainer, stationary bike and weight lifting. Exam dates are still to be determined but will include at least one 5K. However, the course will be graded as satisfactory/unsatisfactory (NOT Pass/Fail). Hopefully, my most enjoyable "class" this semester.

    Love it!!! This is a great outlook to have. True, we get so busy, why not add the fitness to our calendars for each day? I will go and think on this now....
