Girl, I completely understand. I work for a school district in SC, and my hours are from 7 a.m. until- There are days that I work until 6, 7, 8 at night. So, here is what I learned. Of course, this is just me, so no guilt and no throwing anything at you in this. Even working those hours and being completely wiped out mentally and emotionally after work, I somehow found time to do stuff at home or go get dinner with friends, clean the house, organize something, or sit on the couch and veg out because, hey- I just worked 10-12 hours and I DESERVE and have a right to rest/relax. While that is true, the truth in that was that for me, it was excuses. If I couldn't find 20-30 minutes to do some form of movement, at least 3 times a week, yet could sit and do nothing, or find "something" else to do, I was becoming to comfortable where I was. I gave great lip service to wanting to change, but no action in showing that I wanted to change. I used my kids, my job, my house, my husband, my church activities, work, and anything else as an excuse as to why I couldn't go to the gym that day, or put in a Jillian Michaels 20 minute video (30 Day Shred) and work out. One day I just made up my mind that nothing would interfere with my health, my well being, and my life and I finally took charge of my calendar, my time and my life. My schedule for the past two weeks has been ridiculous, but I am making time to do what is important to me. So, in saying that- I ask you to carve out time (EVEN WHEN you are exhausted and just want to go home and crash) and do something that will benefit you. You said yourself that you feel better afterwards. So, let that be your drive and your focus. Don't go by what you "feel" before- Go by what you KNOW you feel afterwards. Good luck on the journey!!!

I'm a band director and I have to be at school early in the morning as well as stay late after school. I live about 40 mins. away from the school I work at so it is very challenging to come straight home to work out. I have been doing it on my own for a while now and I ALWAYS feel better AFTER I work out than I do starting! Its a daily battle and so I have joined this team because I realized that I can't do this on my own. I need help and daily motivation. Even though I have support from family members, they really don't understand what I have to go through everyday and then come home to work out. I hope being on this team will hold me more accountable and I want to be there for you too! Thank you!! :)
