Welcome back to Bi-Weekly Briefing! This is a round up of all the exciting (to me 😉 ) things going on at I Am Teacher Fit and other locations around the internet! Grab a cup of coffee and settle in for a few minutes. We’ve got some catching up to do!
Before we get into the roundup, I have a couple of “thoughts on blogging” I want to share. In the month since I’ve been blogging again, I’ve realized a few things almost immediately. Blogging has changed SO MUCH. When I blogged in the past, it was all about connecting with other bloggers and cultivating a community. That doesn’t seem to be the case so much anymore. In my old days of blogging, I could link up a couple of days a week and always count on comments and engagement (even it that was just “blogging etiquette”). Now, the comments are few and far between, even though the page views are the same. Why is that? Just the changing trends, I guess.
Anyway, if you are reading, I would love to see your comments and engage with you! If you are not a commenter, I would be so happy if you engaged by sharing my posts or following my platforms. Now… Onto the roundup. ♥
Some of my favorite blog posts from the last few days include Stephanie’s book recommendations list, tips for making the most of your nighttime workout by Fruition Fitness, and my old blog friend, Rachel, talking about her new sweet pup! 🙂 Also, my real life BFF, fellow teacher, and blogger, Kirstie, posted a fantastic blog about 7 Ways to Prepare for Maternity Leave! New mama teachers, check that one out for sure!
I shared one of my go-to smoothie recipes that is super quick, easy, and of course, so yummy! It’s perfect for busy mornings with no time to sit down for breakfast.
Last Friday, I discussed work-life balance — as a teacher! Work-life balance is important in any profession, but coming from a different profession into teaching, I can see how out of balance it can be! With my word of the year being balance, I’m trying extra hard to get some practice in for 2017.
Earlier this week, I linked up with Nicole at Fitful Focus for Wild Workout Wednesday and shared some of my favorite workout DVDs when short on time! Check this post out if you are needing some quick options on a busy day!
Yesterday, I told y’all I got a spiralizer attachment for Christmas. Of course, I tacked a recipe onto it as well. 😉 Zucchini noodles are quickly becoming a staple in our house and I cannot wait to try out more recipes!
Well, there’s the round-up for the last couple of weeks! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and come back on Monday for some riveting conversion on fitness and asthma. 😉 (Fun stuff, I know!)
