Wanted: Exercise

The mentor text that inspired my writing tonight is from Kathleen Cushman's Fires in the Bathroom: Advice for Teachers From High School Students. There is a Want Ad for teachers in there crafted by student writers. I've written about many different topics. After a great workout, this want ad seems fitting. 

                                              WANTED: A Routine Workout

Must inspire the desire even when tired. Must be engaging. Must fit into my schedule. Must pass by quickly. Must be intense. Must be accessible. Must not take too much equipment. Must build my cardiovascular endurance. Must make me sweat. Must increase my muscle strength. Must improve my flexibility. Must help me maintain my blood glucose levels. Must tolerate intermittent blood glucose checks. Must not harm me. Must strengthen me for ultimate. Must decrease my insulin use.  Must challenge all. Must not judge. Must gently push.  Must celebrate small victories. 

Thank goodness I've actually found this with my Camp Gladiator family.

  1. What a good idea! One that I may, perhaps, steal for one of these last few posts. I'm hanging in there, but each post seems more and more difficult. If I even borrowed the same topic, maybe I could take it to a personal trainer to help communicate what I want/need.


Thanks for stopping by and commenting! Your words matter!
