Just started week 2 of teaching remotely. I was going in last week to teach from my classroom, but this week I haven't been motivated to do so. I am teaching from home instead. I need to go in tomorrow and switch up materials.

I am trying to get motivated to exercise more. I have been avoiding a lot of my usual outdoor activities in an attempt to try and avoid my annual Fall allergy attack. I can't afford to stay home from work because my symptoms could be COVID. Even if I get a negative test I have to be symptom free for 48 hours. Now that I know I am home until at least the end of November I have been trying to get out more. I went for a walk on Sunday. It was cold and snowing yesterday, but I hope to get out to walk again later this afternoon.

I have started a new goal for myself. I hate strength training, but I did a 9 minute arm workout today. I have it written down in my calendar for the next 21 days to remind me to do it every day. I am hoping to develop a habit. After that I want to go down to 3 days a week and add a leg routine. I am allowing myself one rest day a week until I can get into the routine. I have seen it suggested that going every other day is best, but I know me. If I don't try for a daily routine it is just not going to happen.

Happy Tuesday.

    If you are going to try every day, consider mixing it up. Biceps and triceps on different days, Mix in different exercises for front and back of shoulders, etc. Muscles need a day of rest to repair themselves.

    I like the Total body strength work outs. It gets it all done at once.

    Good luck with your allergies. It's tough in the fall.
