No More Excuses

It was a little after 6pm. In my head I made every excuse I could think of to not go. I had a long day and I was really tired. I had a lot of work to do at home as well. I deserved to leave “early”. I was about to leave my classroom, but then I decided to grab my gym clothes and sneakers and head upstairs to the gym. I decided to stop making excuses.

I did make it to the gym upstairs and ending up having a good workout. Sometimes we just need to fight the excuses and suck it up. The same thing goes for writing. There’s no cutting corners in becoming a better writer, you just have to practice it. Hopefully, writing this blog and the Slice of Life entries every Tuesday will help me become a better writer and ultimately better at teaching writing to my students.

    I’m glad you’re going to be part of this weekly. Yea!

    As far as the exercise is concerned, the best thing I ever did for myself was to leave school at 4:00 p.m. two days a week (granted, it took me five years to get to the point where I could do this) starting in August 2008 to go to do Pilates after school. It helped me so much!

    I have a writer-friend who was going through a period of writer’s block. A coach of hers suggested she write right after her yoga – it was a wonderful idea for her and opened up all sorts of ideas.
    I don’t like it when it gets dark early – all inspiration to do anything after work evaporates as the sun goes down! I’m taking advantage of these last few evenings to walk!!
