I'm joining Michelle over at Bigtime Literacy for the tail end of her Blogging Challenge. Michelle shared an App in her post. Click HERE to see what it's about! In this post, I also "interjected" an App to show you how I applied watercolor effects on a photograph, as well as shared additional possible uses for the App. If you get creative, it's an entertaining App that can be used for various purposes with your students in the classroom, too! :)
Day 28: Health, fitness and general wellness: What are your routines in summer and during the school year?
Growing up, I played various sports, rode my bike, skateboarded, played "Kick the Can" with the neighborhood kids and, so on, to stay active. All of these activities were considered fun, not exercise. I still keep that mentality in my adulthood. I don't hold the notion of movement being something to dread or something I have to make time for. Being active and eating healthy foods is a lifestyle choice. I choose these things because I know they make me feel healthy, energized and happy.
Besides playing with my children, taking long walks in the neighborhood or hiking on trails when camping, my true passion has become boxing. Yes, boxing! However, it's not the type of boxing where individuals are hitting one another, which is originally what I thought when a friend invited me to join Knockout Women's Boxing Club (WKOB). It's a partnership- one person holds the bag, while the other throws specific punch combinations, then vice versa. Trust me, no one is getting physically abused. Otherwise, I'd say, "No thank you."
Needless to say, the group of lovely ladies I join for special events and see 3 to 4 times per week in the club is a one-of-a-kind group. Everyone is so welcoming, friendly and supportive, which is why I love going so much. Below are some of them I band together with to get my sweat on. I'm in the center, back row. (Okay, here comes my App "interjection"!)
