What a great idea. Write a bunch of exercises (with res) on popsicle sticks and put them in one cup. Whenever you have a chance, grab one, do what it says, and move the stick to the Done cup.
I will definitely do this at school :)
Who wants to play cards?

I got this from http://365days-of-healthy.tumblr.com/
A wonderful Tumblr I just discovered, everyone should go follow her.
I am going to do this workout this afternoon, as my gym doesn’t open till 6pm on Sunday’s (from 8am to 1pm then 6-8pm), and wanna do something now. I can do these all at home too, which is great!
Wow..so I deleted this tumblr a few months ago and seriously…this picture I made has over 3000 reblogs! That’s CRAZY!!
The Benefits of Stretching
According to the Mayo Clinic, the top five benefits of stretching include:
Increased flexibility and joint range of motion:
Flexible muscles can improve your daily performance. Tasks such as lifting packages, bending to tie your shoes or hurrying to catch a bus become easier and less tiring. Flexibility tends to diminish as you get older, but you can regain and maintain it.
Stretching increases blood flow to your muscles. Blood flowing to your muscles brings nourishment and gets rid of waste byproducts in the muscle tissue. Improved circulation can help shorten your recovery time if you’ve had any muscle injuries.
Frequent stretching can help keep your muscles from getting tight, allowing you to maintain proper posture. Good posture can minimize discomfort and keep aches and pains at a minimum.
Stretching relaxes tight, tense muscles that often accompany stress.
Maintaining the full range-of-motion through your joints keeps you in better balance. Coordination and balance will help keep you mobile and less prone to injury from falls, especially as you get older.
