Unfortunately magazine subscriptions was one area that I completely cut out this year for economic issues but I do read them at the library.

I subscribe to SELF magazine, but I don't think it would be appropriate for the classroom. There is always a sex feature. I personally enjoy the feature (!) but I don't think I would want to share that with my students.

I used to subscribe to several fitness magazines, but I stopped because I started to get some body image issues that were exacerbated by seeing all of the perfect bodies in my magazines.

I have to say it's a constant balance. My family is supportive and eats what I cook, but I know that when everyone else is thin and healthy a cookie free zone is tough to live with.

I think I have to make the right choices when temptation is around.

Hi! My name's Nicole and I'm brand new to SparkPeople.

I just wanted to chime in about the magazines - I'd ordered a subscription to Fitness and Self for my classroom, using CokePoints. My students never look at them, but I find them really interesting.

I like Body and Soul, and actually I think of Sunset as being pretty healthy. There is always a healthy/outdoors focus, and most of the recipes are fresh and healthy.

At the end of June, I was so jealous because we had students until the 29 here. But you have to go back before the end of July! For us, that would mean that we'd miss the summer altogether. Enjoy the rest of your vacation!

I enjoy watching BONES also. The TV shows that involve using brain cells to solve a case a very appealing to me. I enjoy those because I teach kindergarten and need some adult challenging situations to resolve for entertainment.
