Lessons from the Teacher's Strike
Monday, March 25, 2013
Today marks the beginning of the 4th week of the Strongsville Teacher's strike. I have been absolutely obsessed with learning the issues surrounding it, gathering information, posting my thoughts and opinions online, to the exclusion of just about everything else in my life.
I have still been running on the treadmill here and there, kept up with my 3x a week at Curves, but it's only been in the past week that I've really put attention back into better eating habits.
What I've learned is, if I have such ability to throw myself into a community issue over which I have no real control, I could redirect that time/energy into getting more serious with my nutrition and exercise.
So, it will be my intent this week - while the kids are on Spring break, and there are few news reports of the ongoing strike - to redirect my energies.
