Hi, Emily from NH here. I'm a teacher's aide so have a schedule similar to yours. It's hard to carve out extra time during the school year. I have been involved with Jazzercise for 16 years and make the time to get to 3 or 4 classes a week throughout the school year.
This year the principal of our school has made fitness a priority for the staff. She has brought in a trainer to offer a 40-minute workout twice a week, after school. The program is voluntary, and each teacher has to pay her own fees for the class, but it's a great way to get in some extra exercise without having to pack up and get to a gym. Here's a link to a story about our program in our local paper:

Hi from Rochester, New York. My name is Tracy and I am a working Mom who struggles to find time to take care of myself. One of my goals is to fit in smaller bursts of exercise during the day especially when Mom's Taxi Service is in full swing. My husband and I enjoy taking walks together but our 19 degree weather has taken away our motivation to be outside.
Hi. My name is Peggie and through a Best of Spark e-mail this morning, I heard of this team. I would like to join you. Although I would like to lose some weight, my main concern is fitness. In past years I've worked on my diet (to some degree), but essentially neglected exercise. It shows. I love to walk, ride my bike, and use exercise games on the Wii. All these things take a back seat, however, during the school year as I am a teacher. I am hoping this team will help me stay active throughout the winter and spring months, and beyond. Thanks.
