I schedule my exercise in – during the winter months when the sunlight leaves early I walk right after school, in the summer months I can wait until after dinner to get my walk in. I also track my exercise in an app on my phone to stay motivated. Kristy from 2 Peas and a Dog

When motivated, I wake up at 5AM, work out until 6AM and then shower and get ready for school. It’s not easy though! Meghan from Fun Fresh Ideas

It’s really important that I have a routine in order to accomplish this. The best way for me to be in an exercise routine is to do this after school. I commute 45 minutes away so when I exercise after school it is a great way to escape the day and feel good. Laura Zank from Research Based Teaching Tools

I selected a gym that is not necessarily the most amazing complex in town, but one that is directly on my way home. That way, it’s a lot harder to skip my workout. I’ve made it a habit to pack my workout bag every single day, and I keep spare socks and tennis shoes in my trunk. Also, I set a specific time that I have to leave school. For me, it’s 3:45. If I’m not out of the door by then, I can’t fit in my workout. Whatever else I have to do can wait until after I put the kids to bed. Eliminating excuses goes a long way in terms of motivating me to get it done. Melissa from The Reading and Writing Haven

I like to run for a half an hour right after school. This creates a solid break between my work and my personal life. It helps me de-stress from the school day, which means that I’m happier and healthier when I get back home. This means I can focus on my family without letting any negativity seep over. Danielle from Teach Nouvelle

After school I go to the gym. Angie Sherbondy from Best Power Points for Spanish

I walk my dog. Lisa Spangler from Mrs. Spangler in the Middle

Exercise is a key part of my sanity. I am willing to get up early, very early, just to run. If I leave it to the end of the day, it is too easy for something else to come up. Doc from Education with Doc Running

Exercise is built into my schedule. I find an exercise class I love and attend several times a week to relieve stress and boost my energy. That time is not negotiable. If you feel like you can’t make that kind of commitment, bring a clipboard with some marking to do to the gym and park yourself on the treadmill, elliptical or exercise bike.  Brynn Allison from The Literary Maven
