Metabolic aftershock

I just finished my 3rd week of metabolic aftershock. Oh my goodness. I was having a lot of joint pain before I started, but I realized that when I hurt my shoulder last spring, I’d quit moving because my shoulder hurt. So the shoulder got better and the rest of me was a mess.  I can’t believe how much better I feel today and how much easier it is to move!

The only complaint I have involved the ordering process. It took forever and was way too gimmicky, but well worth the hassel. 

NCAE’s Week of Action

NCAE has planned a Week of Action beginning May 8 to support PE, music, art, and foreign language teachers. Unfortunately media specialists are not mentioned.  

Please join me in sending NCAE a comment thanking them for their support of all these courses and asking that they add school librarians to the list! Please advocate for school libraries!
