Worship is a very important part of the life at LCCR, and while our youth are welcome to participate in leading worship throughout the year, annually they plan and lead the worship service.
The final Intergenerational Event of the 2015-16 Educational Program year will be an interactive event about Prayer, asking questions such as: What is prayer? We will also reinstate LCCR's Prayer Partners, finding an adult to pray for each of LCCRa€™s children. Come help spiffy up the building and grounds for Joe Larsona€™s ordination at 2:00 and the dedication of the mosaic on Sunday as well as for the rest of Spring and Summer.
Members of the above committees have previewed two books that they believe would spark a valuable discussion within the congregation.
Wea€™ll discuss Toxic Charity: How Churches and Charities Hurt Those They Help ( and How to Reverse It) by Robert D. We believe a discussion around these books would help us think about how we as a community choose to give and volunteer and even advocate. Please take a moment to thank her and wish her and her family well, and join us on the 22nd to celebrate her accomplishments.
Our Middlers, a sixth and seventh grade combined Sunday school class, have been studying heroes of the Bible this year. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) provides two ways in which Holy Communion can be shared with homebound members of a congregation. The communion elements brought to the homebound person have been on the altar and consecrated along with the elements shared by those at worship that day. The Community Care Committee is seeking LCCR members interested in serving as Home Communion Ministers. This year the Mission Support committee has been actively engaging the entire congregation in discerning where our ministry resources will be directed for the coming budget year. Though we wona€™t be able to tithe 10 percent of our budget to the synod this year, we will increase it from the previous year. One of the requests from folks during our meetings to develop our 5 year goals was some concise information on what exactly our different committees do and what level of commitment is required. Adult Education a€“ This committee meets occasionally, usually Sunday after worship, and coordinates with other committees, to provide educational opportunities for adults. Childrena€™s Education a€“ This committee meets nearly every month, usually in the evening, and coordinates with staff to provide educational opportunities for youth and children. Community Care a€“ This committee meets every other month late in the afternoon on Wednesdays. Mission Support a€“ This committee meets as needed on the first Thursday evening of the month. Youth a€“ All parents and youth meet occasionally with the youth minister to plan youth activities. The Prayer Chain a€“ This group participates by email or phone tree and prays for members, family and friends for support and nurture. Assisting Minister a€“ If you would like to be trained to be an assisting minister please talk to Pastor Albing.
After the potluck at LCCR (see the announcement about the potluck on May 22), our family will go to Central Lutheran for the Luther Seminary Commencement ceremony, beginning at 3 pm. Summer Kick-Off bonfire: We are still working on a date, but we are working on an LCCR summer kick-off bonfire at Nataliea€™s parentsa€™ house in Bloomington. LCCR folks worked hard to make 66 West, apartments to be built across from Southdale to house homeless youth and give them the support they need to get jobs, finish their education and move on with their lives, a reality. Beacon is having this meeting where Beacon congregations gather collaboratively to ask public officials to stand with us to end homelessness by funding supportive housing at the county and state levels. Wea€™re really hoping that with 66 West and Homeless Youth as a focus LCCR will have a significant presence (15, 25 or even 35) as wea€™ll be asked to stand up representing LCCR.
Come help spiffy up the building and grounds for Joe Larsona€™s ordination at 2:00A  and the dedication of the mosaic on Sunday as well as for the rest of Spring and Summer. Dave showing off Zoea€™s balloon animals at the Talent show (bottom left) and our monthly senior high youth meeting spot, Butter Bakery Cafe at 38th and Nicollet Avenue (bottom right).
A Please pray for all of the kids who will be leading worship, and please plan to attend worship! Wea€™ll do the usual jobs: wash windows, put up screens, wash the pews, clean the kitchen, trim shrubs and dig weeds.
Joe graduated from Luther Seminary many years ago, but chose not to pursue ordination at that time. Mark's Lutheran in Fargo is the only RIC (Reconciling In Christ) congregation in North Dakota and first voted to become RIC over 25 years ago.
They are going to sell their home in Minneapolis and purchase a new house in Fargo or Moorhead.
Joe has created a number of hanging murals for our sanctuary and a new mosaic that will be displayed in the entry area of our church. It might also be helpful to many of us in determining our own individual giving, volunteering and even investing. May 22nd we will be thanking our pastoral intern, Michelle Lewis, and sending her, AJ, Kathryn and Zoe to their next adventure. We are grateful for her work with our children, her leadership with intergenerational learning, her presence in worship, her care of our homebound members, and the willing spirit and heart that she brought to all her work.
Wea€™ll be electing members of the Congregation Council, the Mission Endowment Fund, and delegates to next yeara€™s synod convention.
Don Luther, pastor of LCCR from 1979-2001, introduced the practice of LCCR members bringing communion elements to homebound members directly from a worship service.
The locations of a visit include the persona€™s home, a nursing home, hospice, hospital, or rehabilitation facility. Typically, the presiding minister gives the communion elements to the Home Communion Minister when the table is being cleared.
Please add your name to the sign-up sheet on the counter in the narthex if this ministry appeals to you and you would like to learn more about it. Carrying communion from a worship service to a member unable to physically be there is a powerful reminder of our oneness.
We are invested, interested, involved, not only as we gather here but as we are sent into the world. During two meetings in January, members were apprised of financial challenges and identified what is most important to them.
We will continue to give away the tithe to our 2007 building project and continue our membership in the Gathering. The executive committee has approved of Michelle Lewisa€™ offer to be an interim office manager.
They provide care to individuals where needed, and coordinate a variety of services for LCCR and for the community in coordination with other congregations. It seeks to relate our faith to matters of justice and peace, locally, nationally and globally, and so engages the congregation in projects and through education. Its responsibility is for nearly all things related to worship, including the services themselves, arts, and coordinating volunteers for Saturday and Sunday morning. Others are welcome to participate in supporting the youth, chaperoning events and praying for our youth.
While the past few weeks have been a busy time for many of us with work, school, and other spring activities, they have been fairly quiet in terms of official youth events.
Youth in grades 6-12 who are able are invited to A visit Sedrique and eat a meal at Nicollet Diner following the service.
To swap plants, they must be brought by 10:00 am to get tickets for discounts on new plants.
We went to meetings at Edina City Hall to show support, wrote letters, sent postcards to get the legislature to provide funding that could be used for the project and contributed $10,000 to it.
Alberta will tell stories from her involvement with the Roseville consortium of The Gatheringa€? representative of activities done with participants.
Wea€™ll have some equipment but it will help if you bring what you think youa€™ll use so therea€™s enough to go around.
He began the certification process for ordination a couple years ago and is excited to finally be able to serve as a pastor.
Charlie will probably stay a little longer in Minneapolis and will be looking for a job in a local school. Wea€™ll review the past year and tie up loose ends and then talk a bit about plans for the coming year. We had read the story of Esther and how she helped her people and were conversing about ways large and small that we could help the people around us who are struggling. The second is a service provided by a member of the congregation, who is sent directly from a worship service with a portion of the bread and wine (or grape juice) distributed that day at worship.
This was a ministry of hospitality to those who were unable to attend worship, but wanted to maintain a connection with the community gathered at LCCR. Additionally, Michelle Lewis will complete her two-year commitment as LCCR intern in mid-May (a new intern will not be assigned to LCCR for at least a year) and Niveen Sarras, cultural liaison, is seeking a full-time call by November.
Those who have served as Home Communion Ministers have been enriched by the experience in unexpected ways.
LCCR actively engages us and equips us to be sent out into the world to love our neighbors. We will also continue to support our youth program and supplemental activities and camps for our kids.
Though we can recall all that we have done together in the 21 months I have been with you as the Pastoral Intern, it is still surprising that nearly 2 years have passed since my family and I first joined you in ministry.
Despite that fact, our LCCR youth have still been extremely active in the life and work of our church.
Focusing on whole foods such as grains and fresh fruits and vegetables while minimizing processed foods, establishing and maintaining adequate hydration, and being aware of potential adverse reactions to food and food additives contributes to wellness. She will provide information about LCCRa€™s participation with The Gathering at Bethlehem Lutheran and the need for volunteers. Later that afternoon of the 22nd she will head to Central Lutheran for her seminary graduation.
Wea€™ll approve dispersal of Capital Appeal benevolence based on Council recommendations (or amend them).
Marka€™s in Fargo, there is more urgency in getting the final touches on, and our intention is to have it mounted on the entry wall before his ordination on May 14th. A In addition to talking about Esther, the students also learned about the lives of their contemporaries. This Home Communion Ministry was active until 2013, when interns serving the congregation began supplementing the regular pastoral visits of Pastor Albing by bringing communion to homebound members. Home Communion Ministers will be responsible for continuing the visits to the homebound that have been faithfully made by Michelle and Niveen. This is a symbol for those gathered in the assembly of the oneness they share with the person being visited. The guidelines for making a visit to a homebound person, and the short liturgy used during the visit, will be discussed. Membersa€™ feedback indicates people are supportive of having an intern at LCCR and that this ministry is a gift to the wider church. Additionally, I will return to LCCR beginning on July 1 as an Interim Communications Coordinator. In late March, a group of LCCR youth and adults worked together to clean up after a free meal provided by Loaves and Fishes at St.
There is no magic potion involved to instantly make you slim and fit, only a little bit of learning and practice.A The Body Mass Index (BMI) is the accepted measure for assessing weight most accurately. The color of the day is red, so plan on wearing something colorful!A A light reception will follow the service. A As students discussed a potential project ,one student talked about an encounter he had with a woman working at a Target store. By receiving communion elements that had been at the worship service, the person being visited feels a sense of participation in the service. Please deposit your pledge in the box on the narthex counter or email it to Pastor Albing by May 1.
I continue to thank God for LCCR, for the opportunity to join you in ministry, and look forward to the opportunity to continue working with you, though in a different role. He reported how unfairly she was treated by a customer and he resolved to be especially nice to her as she waited on his family.a€?This led to a discussion of people in all kinds of service jobs and how hard their jobs are.

As body fat increases and lean body mass decreases, the risk for cardiovascular disease increases. Pastor Mary was meeting with the students and responded, a€?Ia€™m not sure about people working at check-outs.
Several senior high youth also participated in our monthly meeting at Butter Bakery Cafe on April 3rd, and discussed upcoming events and plans including our summer trip (more info to come). But I know that many custodians start at only nine or ten dollars an hour.a€? A Another student said, a€?Wow! In addition our youth performed in the talent show on April 9th, played in the LCCR band during worship, met to plan the Youth Sunday service coming up on May 1st, and gave another fabulous presentation on the case for raising the minimum wage in Minnesota to a living wage.
This ratio is calculated by dividing the waist measurement in inches by the hip measurement in inches.
This month has provided many opportunities for our young people to engage in our community in their own unique ways, and it was truly amazing to just sit back and watch them in action. Your goal should be to take your body and make it as healthy, strong, flexible and well-proportioned as you can.


As an African American whose family had barely escaped Southern atrocities, she recognized the potential pushback when you stepped out of place. A Pastor Mary told them that this was an idea that many people in our community were discussing, and they responded that they wanted this to be their project somehow.
Thin or plump, young or old, you will be more beautiful, have a prouder carriage, healthier glow and a supple flow of movement which says that you are comfortable and confident about your physical self.i»?The fastest, healthiest, and most effective, interesting and rewarding way to lose weight is by combining 300 minutes of cardio exercise a week with a healthful diet. A As the project progressed, the students touched back on the question of, a€?Why are we doing this? The best results come when you simultaneously cut down on caloric intake and increase the calories you burn up through exercise.A A Some of what you'll learn is basic common sense, but hopefully you'll gain some insight into how you can change your bad eating habits into good eating habits so you can lose weight and keep it off.
How do we respond when the lynching is verbal, not physically fatal (most of the time) and the klan has its own network, which is the most watched in the US? In this guide I'm going to give you straight talk about what it takes to rapidly lose weight and get fit in a healthy way.
Telling the truth and exposing these people for what they are and what they do is important, but it won't be enough. I'm going to show you exactly what you need to do, step-by-step, so you can reach your weight loss goal and keep that weight off for the long term. That was so long ago that the small schools at Orr High School, whose LSC signed on as original plaintiffs, have been closed again and reopened under the auspices of AUSL (for more about AUSL, read the latest here). If you are going to lose weight and stay fit, you have to think i»?long term lifestyle changesi»?. You can't eat a banana or a bowl of cabbage soup for three days and think you've succeeded in your weight loss goal. You've only developed a nasty habit of yo-yo dieting.A I know that's probably not what you wanted to hear. Most people want instant gratification when they make that all important decision to get fit and lose weight.
Granted, obesity does run in some families, but that doesn't mean you have to sit back and accept your overweight as a kind of family curse.
More than likely it's simply the result of careless or naive eating habits and far too little physical activity - lazy habits passed on from generation to generation. Diet properly and you'll not only look better, but you'll eat better than you probably have in years. In that case, he's either being overly kind, or he's overweight himself, or he's simply telling a big fat lie! Let it show you how to add not as much as a single pound though you add five, ten, twenty, even thirty candles to your birthday cake.
It doesn't motivate many people to even try to lose weight because a vast majority of those who diet and lose even a little weight will eventually put all that weight (and many times more) back on as soon as they stop dieting.A Therin lies the problem.
Diets are doomed to fail right from the start because most people view diets as a short term solution, something they can follow for a set period of time to get the desired results and then just stop. But unless it's a diet plan they can follow for life, they're doomed to fail.A It doesn't really matter if you believe it or not. You wouldn't be reading this article if you did.A If you want to lose weight and keep that weight off, you need to stop thinking of a diet as a temporary fix. Unfortunately, most people follow an "unhealthy" diet which leads to weight gain, high blood sugar, and for some, obesity, high blood pressure and heart disease.A Weight gain is the product of not paying attention to what you put in your body, how often you do it and when. They also produce long term health problems, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, constipation, fatty liver, heart disease and more.A You may be feeling great because you've lost a few pounds.
But I guarantee you this - If you stop following that diet, and go back to your old eating habits, very soon you'll find yourself on the wrong side of that diet failure statistic.A When you crash diet, you put your metabolismon a roller coaster ride. Instead of speeding up and giving your body more energy, the lower calorie intake that normally goes with a crash diet puts your body in "famine" mode. It would also mean that it was more important to get accurate, useful information that could be used to help schools and students. Your body doesn't want to let go of what it knows it needs to survive.A You need to think i»?long term, healthy eating i»?that will help promote a healthy metabolism, not send it into shock.
Who needs that when you can damn schools with data?No, it's far more important for testing to be "standardized" - that is, given at the same time to everyone, according to state supt.
Chris Koch's rationale: "This is the state's attempt to say, 'How can we treat everyone the same and everyone fairly?a€?It may be standardized but that doesn't make it fair.
Some people are unable to digest dairy products because their body doesn't produce an enzyme called lactase.
However, because the culture in yogurt produces its own lactase it can be enjoyed by most people.
Eating yogurt can combat the bacterium that causes stomach ulcers.Eggs- Skip that stack of pancakes and get a fat-burning boost with a plate of eggs. The On the Issues site provides a list of statements by Kirk on education and his education-related votes as a congressman. Eating the right meal within an hour or two after exercise can make the biggest difference you've noticed yet. It suggests that he is a moderate on social issues such as school prayer and green schools.
That's the time when your body needs -and most effectively uses- food to turn your effort into stronger muscles and increased energy levels. Kirk got into some trouble earlier this year when he claimed that he's influenced by his experience as a teacher, which turned out to consist of a year at a private high school in London and another as a teacher aide at a church run nursery school. Starting a meal with half a grapefruit is an old diet trick that does seem to work, according to scientists.
There's a third candidate who deserves some attention, too -- LeAlan Jones, the Green Party candidate. In 2006, they found that this simple change helped a group of very overweight volunteers to lose weight. I remember him well when, as a 13-year-old, he and a friend reported on life in the Chicago projects for National Public Radio. Grapefruit is full of flavonoids that repair cell damage, combat cancer, and protect the heart.Avocados- They have a hunger-halting hormone called leptin.
Scientists have found people are more relaxed after a higher-fat meal, and even feel less pain. Some fat is also necessary for the body to absorb nutrients that can improve your mood, such a vitamin E. Avocados are the healthier alternative: instead of saturated fat, they provide healthy monounsaturated fat.
They are rich in tryptophan, along with vitamin B6 and folate, which helps the body turn tryptophan into the feel-good chemical serotonin.Mushrooms- Try swapping out meat for mushrooms in your favorite recipe.
Senator, and will have the responsibility to make critical decisions about education along with every other issue before Congress.
A recent study found that mushrooms were just as filling, but of course don't have the saturated fat that's found in meat. Mushrooms are one of the richest sources of a powerful antioxidant called L-ergothioneine, which combats cell damage. They are also rich in vitamin B3, which might slow the onset of age-related dementias, and potassium, which helps to regulate blood pressure. Research is being done into their cancer-fighting properties, including reducing the risk of breast cancer. Rick has been a staunch advocate for public school children and families, and for Local School Councils.
Mushrooms might also help to slow down age-related muscle loss, as they provide protein in a form that the body can easily use. Shiitake mushrooms, in particular, are rich in iron.Olive Oil- With all of its heart-healthy qualities, olive oil contains a hunger-busting acid too. We know that too many of them don't. Even on a traditional calendar, non-air conditioned schools can be ovens, places where it's too hot to learn and too unhealthy to stay. These three nutrients are associated with a lower risk of colon cancer, which becomes increasingly common in later age. Together, these nutrients protect cells from the damage that can lead to cancer, as well as causing heart disease, hardening of the arteries, and skin deterioration. The vitamin E content can reduce the severity of hot flashes.Whole Grains- To whittle your middle, go for the whole grains.
Folks who eat more whole grains have less belly fat.Red Pepper- Do you love crushed red peppers?
The heat-inducing compound (capsaicin) that's found in pepper actually cuts your appetite.Fava Beans- Bring on the fava beans if you want to cut that belly fat. CPS district offices? Most of our currently-used schools were designed to be closed during the summer, just as they were designed without lunchrooms because all the children went home for lunch. At least health codes address some of the worst sanitation problems that schools without lunchrooms face. So it stands to reason that the first step in weight loss would be cutting back on your food intake. You don't want to starve your body.A When you don't eat enough food, your body will begin to take whatever it needs in the way of nutrients from other parts of your body in order to survive.
CPS claims that its so-called year-round school schedule is better for students, but the proof of that is slight.
That means taking nutrients from your bones, teeth, and vital organs, leaving your body depleted. Your metabolism will shut down in order to reserve energy and your body will only use enough energy to stay alive. Teachers should move their classes to municipal cooling centers until CPS does the right thing and upgrades every school so that children have a reasonable chance to learn. So while you may think that by starving yourself you'll drop weight quicker, what you're actually doing is sabotaging your metabolism.A The operative word when thinking of food is "healthy". It's not enough to simply eat enough food to keep your metabolism running at optimal performance. You need foods that will give your body energy while allowing it to function with a minimal amount of effort.A It is true that there are no bad "foods" if you eat them in moderation and balance them with healthy foods. No one wants to feel deprived of having their favorite dessert or a fast food burger every so often.
However, if you have that fast food burger every day of the week or eat that piece of triple chocolate cake before you go to bed every evening without giving a thought to how your body will react to it, you've established a bad eating habit.A A The trick is to balance the amount of food you eat with whole grains, fresh vegetables and fruits, along with lean meats.
That's not much time, and the appeal is supposed to go to the Chief Education Officer, a position that has had no person in it since Barbara Eason-Watkins left for Michigan City. Usually the appeals go to the Chief Area Officers. Good News was a modestly successful program; the church was in the very needy North of Howard area of Chicago and ran a well-attended food program. That means that whatever it is you're eating is sitting in you while you relax rather than being burned off as you go about your day.A A Furthermore, when you skip a meal, you're famished by the time you finally do get to eat later in the afternoon or early evening. The down side we saw was a lack of interest in supporting the local school council at the nearby public school, which went through a traumatic time after the district refused to allow the LSC-appointed principal to serve. By then end of the day, you've already burned most of the calories you are going to burn during the day. Your body ends up storing those excess calories in your body fat and keeps them in reserve for the next time you skip a meal.A A This can become a vicious circle of you trying to desperately cut back calories by skipping meals and your body is desperately trying to hold on to whatever nourishment it can get. Instead of eating 3 big meals a day, eat 5 or 6 smaller meals.A A Start your day with proteins and any carbohydrates you might want to have during the course of the day. They claimed that the price of food was going down, so hungry people won't need so much. As House Finance Chair David Obey, who proposed the RTTT swap, said, "Well, isna€™t that nice. That fat contributes not only to weight gain, but other health issues that are detrimental.A A But not all fats are created equal.
Why is it the responsibility of Chicago community colleges to spend $30 million a year to pick up lost math and reading skills?" Chico said. "I'm not saying that as a society we shouldn't be charged with doing that someplace. But why is it placed in the lap of higher education?" (Sun-Times 8-8-10) I guess it just slipped Chico's mind that he is in large part responsible for the math and reading skills of these very students. A student who started preschool in 1995, when Chico was appointed president of the Chicago School Board by Mayor Daley, would have been in fourth grade -- when most of the fundamentals of reading and math should have been laid down -- when Chico left that position in 2001.
Monounsaturated fats can be found in foods like almonds, walnuts, peanuts, avocadoes, and olive oil.
Not only are they good for weight loss, as an added health benefit they help to lower your bad LDL cholesterol.A A Polyunsaturated fats also help lower LDL cholesterol levels as well as aid in weight loss.
Foods rich in polyunsaturated fat are salmon, cod, corn and sunflower oils, flaxseed and other fish oils.
Foods that contain polyunsaturated fat also contain omega 3 fatty acids, which help aid the body in weight loss.A A You want to avoid saturated fats such as foods fried in vegetable oil or prepackaged foods that add fat for flavoring. These books were written in 2004 and 2005 in response to many requests to help start PURE chapters around the country, and from folks who just wanted to know how to create a powerful parent organization. It explains why folks in power hate to fund schools adequately and demand "accountability" using methods that destroy rather than strengthen schools. I say changing lifestyle habits instead of focusing on just the kind of food you eat and when you eat it because losing weight, getting fit, and staying that way is not a short term gig.
The President's speech to the National Urban League was in large part a defense of these programs against the many concerns that have been raised about whether they are the most effective ways to reform U. Obama suggested in his speech that people who oppose his proposals may simply be a€?afraid of change.a€? A few days earlier, he threatened to veto any attempt to use even a small portion of funding for his controversial Race to the Top program to save thousands of teacher jobs. Education Secretary Arne Duncan stonewalls critics of his department's demands for charter expansion who cite the research on the overall poor performance of charters nationwide; he offers the nonsensical excuse that he doesn't support charter schools, he only supports good charter schools.
Stored calories are held in fat cells.A A Break this bad habit by replacing your sedentary lifestyle with exercise in the late afternoon or early evening. Today, columnist Leonard Pitts tells opponents of the President's plans to a€?lead, follow or get out of the way.a€? Perhaps the most important moment of the President's Urban League speech was his paraphrase of Dr. A Another reason why exercising later in the day is good is because not everyone has the time during the morning before work or the day gets underway to do justice to a solid workout.


If you are a busy mom of two and need to get your kids off to school or to daycare before you head off to work, when is there time to get to the gym to workout? In a democracy, education reform cannot be defined only by legislators, politicians, and corporate and media leaders.
More times than not the workout gets bumped from the daily schedule and all the efforts at eating right and trying to lose weight are reduced significantly. A Get around this by scheduling your exercise at a time you know you won't have any conflicts that will interrupt you. Pitts' piece repeats much of the empty, nonsensical rhetoric we just heard in the president's and Duncan's recent speeches to the National Urban League, speeches that were in large part responses to the powerful opposition that has been raised against RTTT and the proposed School Improvement Grant program by civil rights, community, parent and teacher groups.
For today's  Public School Action Tuesday, why not respond to Pitts by leaving a comment after his article here, or write to a newspaper or comment on a blog of your choice opposing RTTT programs such as test-based teacher firing, school closures, and expanded charter schools, and in support of fair, research-based teacher evaluation or other sound education reforms? Most people make the mistake of only writing down the foods they eat during a planned meal. But they forget about the cream they put in their coffee, a spoonful of ice cream they snuck when serving dessert, a few crackers they popped in their mouth because they suddenly had a sugar craving.A A Some people will find themselves disciplined enough to resist mindless eating. But if you're just starting out in your diet, or not sure how your willpower will hold out, the best thing you can do to kick this habit is to keep a small notebook tucked away in your pocket or in your purse. Every time you get the urge to bring food to your mouth, pull out that notebook and write down what you are about to eat.
That one small move will snap you into the realization that you might be consuming calories that will negatively affect your diet.A A There are a whole lot of reasons why people eat mindlessly. That depression can range from life changes or even frustration over your current health and happiness. It could be anything from a sluggish thyroid to faulty genetics to just not having enough time to think about weight loss.A A I'm here to tell you to knock it off!
One notorious example was when Mayor Daley's favorite "superstar" principal, Curie High School's former head Jerrylyn Jones, handed out folders with copies of petitions demanding that the LSC renew her contract, instead of the budget and school improvement plan information the LSC had requested as part of her annual evaluation.Other principals refuse to give documents to individual LSC members, and insist on a vote of the full LSC before they provide information, another ridiculous excuse.I recommend that LSC members download and file this article - you may need it! The only way you will lose weight and keep it off is stop making excuses for why you're not succeeding.
And keep the phone and address of the Attorney General's Public Access Counselor handy - they have become a great resource for LSCs. The web site also offers free online training in the Freedom of Information Act and the Open Meetings Act, which would be a good choice for your LSC lessons 7-8- or 9.
In fact, having a sluggish thyroid or other genetic problem may be an additional barrier to how fast you can lose weight. People with "bad" genetics and even health problems do manage to lose weight when they put their mind to it. The thing that keeps them from losing weight is falling back on the reason it is so difficult for them.A A Use symbols of physical activity to represent your new lifestyle.
This takes your attention away from food and refocuses it on the new behaviors that will make you feel good.
Put an apple, or a copy of diet books on your desk, put your walking shoes in a conspicuous place rather than in your closet. Buy some books on walking, yoga, or other physical activities and place them on tables in different rooms. Each time you lay your eyes on them, you can give yourself a quick pat on the back for all the changes you are making.
A visible token of the new you in every room of the house will stimulate you to keep up the good work, keep your eating under control, and remind you to keep up the positive dialogue with yourself.A A Deposit a certain sum of money to a savings account for the successful completion of your behavior change strategy each day. If you deposit a dollar for every mile walked you will soon have enough to buy the new clothes you are going to need. The dread Status-Quo is on the loose! Both Education Secretary Arne Duncan and President Obama are on the defensive this week about their education plans after a group of civil rights organizations challenged the basic elements of the administration's Race to the Top and Blueprint for Reform plans, adding a powerful voice to the increasingly loud complaints coming from other sectors across the nation about the direction Duncan and Obama are trying to take public education.
You deserve a good new wardrobe.A A Learn everything you possibly can about your "excuse" for not losing weight. For instance, if you have a sluggish thyroid, talk to your health care provider about being put on medication to regulate it, if needed.
Learn what foods interfere with thyroid hormone production.A Allowing yourself to use excuses for why you are unable to lose weight will only be self-defeating.
Empower yourself to change those excuses around and become proactive in your desire to lose weight.A A You may not lose weight as fast as someone else who does not have the same issues you have. And I can guarantee that you won't lose any weight if you continue to use your excuses as a crutch.A If it were really that easy to lose weight then everyone would do it. We wouldn't be a society of overweight people.Weight loss takes dedication and a conscious effort to eat healthy foods and exercise regularly.
It may not be intentional but most people underestimatethe amount of calories and fat they eat in any given day. If you're supposed to exercise for 30 minutes and you only exercise for 20, you're not giving yourself the truth.
Anyone would argue that 20 minutes of exercise is still better than zero minutes of exercise. But you will go further over the long haul and make more progress towards reaching your goal if you are honest about exactly what it is you are doing. Your Public Schools Action Tuesday assignment for today, if you choose to accept it, is to give a gift to PURE. If you're eating something healthy like fresh garden greens and lean meats it may not make a difference. But there will come a time when you've reached your weight loss goal where you'll start introducing higher calorie foods occasionally. The internet gives us so many new opportunities for reaching people with our message and our perspective.
Not everyone in your household will be on a diet and not everyone will want to eat the same foods you need to eat to lose weight. It's also tiring to have to make two different meals to satisfy different people.A A Remember that no one is going to keep you on track but you. When there are differing menu choices for the family, make sure you incorporate your diet menu into the overall meal plan. For instance, if everyone else is having tacos for dinner, instead of using high calorie, high carbohydrate tortillas, make a taco salad for yourself.
For every hour of the day, enter in what chores everyone in the family wants to do and needs to do for an entire week.
Occasionally, you will find that you have cheated on your diet or skipped your exercise program and think you've blown it. Instead of getting right back on the wagon after you've fallen, you continue cheating and then decide to start back up eating right and exercising the next day.A A While I applaud you for getting right back on that wagon and getting back into your weight loss and fitness program again, I need to caution you about the mindset of blowing it all the way. That's what it's like to be a CPS principal these days in terms of trying to figure out how to lead your school in the coming year. "I'm growing more concerned about the planned rise in 'combined-grades' [not to be confused with multiage or ungraded] classrooms, due to the teacher layoffs and increased class sizes. But there are mistakes, and then there are disasters.A If you overindulge one evening or cheat on your diet, the best thing for you to do as soon as you realize your mistake is to stop right there and make yourself get right back on track.
You wind up scrambling the days before school opens, and the week the students return, just to figure out who's who and 'where' they are in terms of their next learning steps, based upon their test scores from spring (=old data, let's face it) plus your expert judgment of children's learning needs.
But as soon as you recognize it, then make sure you stop and get right back on the program to prevent further damaging your momentum. THEN you have to scramble to quickly sort 'em all out into their learning groups so that by Week 5 you can administer the required District curriculum-based tests (half of which you'll now have to create from the new curriculum you're teaching, due to the other grade-level's children in your room).
It's not enough to say that you'll do an extra set of crunches or an additional 15 minutes of aerobics.
I fear not a whole lot of learning--through no fault of the teacher or the kids or the parents. "I also fear this will be the proverbial 'final straw' on teachers' backs--and we'll lose some fine folks in our system." What can we do? Join the CTU for a community summit on the CPS budget, Saturday, July 24, from 11 am to 12:30 pm at Ariel School, 1119 East 46th Street. Anthony House yesterday, opining that a field trip would have gone a long way toward improving my sense of local history. In this guide I'm going to give you straight talk about what it takes to rapidly lose weight and get fit in a healthy way.
I'm going to show you exactly what you need to do, step-by-step, so you can reach your weight loss goal and keep that weight off for the long term.
Not so surprising is that the Frederick Douglass museum, just down the block, is still very much a work in progress.Anyway, I loved the tour and especially loved the sculpture, in a little park midway between the Anthony house and the struggling Douglas Center, depicting Susan B. This means, he said, "notification, outreach, public input, and honest, open discussion about the right option for each community." Unfortunately, Duncan's track record in Chicago makes us skeptical that this is anything more than empty rhetoric. His efforts to "involve the community" in turnrounds here meant that perfunctory hearings were held where hundreds turned out to offer powerful testimony about a school's strengths along with thoughtful, research-based suggestions about how to support and improve the existing school, yet Arne Duncan ignored it all and shut the schools down. This means that Arne Duncan must begin really listening to parents, and the only way we will know that he is actually hearing us is when he begins to modify the RTTT and ESEA proposals that parents so strongly oppose and replace them with solid, proven programs that parents want. Granted, obesity does run in some families, but that doesn't mean you have to sit back and accept your overweight as a kind of family curse. More than likely it's simply the result of careless or naive eating habits and far too little physical activity - lazy habits passed on from generation to generation. Education Secretary Arne Duncan for changing this federal education law.The signers and hundreds of other parents sent this letter to their congressional representatives. While many are saying that a revised (reauthorized) ESEA is unlikely to be voted on before the fall elections, revised language is being hammered out in committee right now, and it may be too make meaningful changes later on in the process. Here are a couple of things that many in Congress still seem unaware of:Parents, students and community members join teachers across the nation in opposing the major elements of Race to the TopCharter schools are not working as hyped, and in fact the majority are not performing as well as regular public schools. Durbin is one of thirteen senators who recently wrote a letter to Senate Appropriations Committee chair Sen. Daniel Inouye opposing this bill, which was formulated by the chair of the House Education committee, Rep. Leonie offers a thorough analysis of the damage and dishonesty of the Gates Foundation's incursion into public school policy making. Urban Prep Charter School still has a 100% college-going rate with ALL 95 graduating seniors going to college!Problem is, for the past few weeks, the orgy of happy-weepy media reports about the Urban Prep Miracle was that all 107 graduating seniors were going to college (see, for example, People Magazine, Good Morning America, "Urban Prep Named Person of the Week on ABC World News).  So, since their first self-promotional blitz, they've lost 12 students (the Sun-Times suggests they "transferred") ? This yields an overall school graduation rate of 64%, or nearly 6 points lower than the average district rate of 69.8%.
Some people are unable to digest dairy products because their body doesn't produce an enzyme called lactase. Yet no one is "socially promoted" because no one moves until they are ready. And in these tough economic times, doesn't it make a lot more sense to stop doing something that is expensive and doesn't work -- flunking students -- and start doing something that actually helps them? Eating the right meal within an hour or two after exercise can make the biggest difference you've noticed yet. That's the time when your body needs -and most effectively uses- food to turn your effort into stronger muscles and increased energy levels.
A new documentary, Waiting for Superman, will soon be released and we are working on getting Examiners free, possibly sneak preview access, to this film. Wea€™d like you to participate in screening the film and covering the critical education issues it addresses. Wea€™ll also be promoting content related to the film, profiling profound teachers making a difference. We know that these schools push out lower-performing students and refuse to even admit many special education or limited English-speaking students.
And, overall, research shows that charter and other corporate-run schools are doing a worse job than traditional neighborhood schools. In fact, one of Arne's greatest assets is his ability to lie with a pleasant, non-threatening smile on his face. And that's a problem because, if Congress believes his lies, they will pass his ideas into law. It's time to tell the truth about Arne Duncan, what he's done here in Chicago, and what he's trying to do to our children's education. It's not enough to simply eat enough food to keep your metabolism running at optimal performance. However, we strongly disagree with your opposition to paying for this initiative with funds previously allocated for Race To the Top (RTTT) strategies, teacher pay-for-performance programs, and charter school expansion. While you characterize these strategies as a€?sweeping reforms,a€? we believe that they are unproven, reckless, wasteful experiments which put our most vulnerable children at risk.
However, we strongly disagree with your opposition to paying for this initiative with funds previously allocated for Race To the Top (RTTT) strategies, teacher pay-for-performance programs, and charter school expansion. You're body is only going to use what it needs at that particular moment and nothing more. You call these programs a€?vital,a€? a€?bold,a€? and a€?critical reform efforts.a€? We see the Obey amendment as a win-win situation.
By then end of the day, you've already burned most of the calories you are going to burn during the day.
Sure, popcorn has a high amount of fiber, something that is good when you're on a diet. A Get around this by scheduling your exercise at a time you know you won't have any conflicts that will interrupt you. But if you're just starting out in your diet, or not sure how your willpower will hold out, the best thing you can do to kick this habit is to keep a small notebook tucked away in your pocket or in your purse.
It could be anything from a sluggish thyroid to faulty genetics to just not having enough time to think about weight loss.A A I'm here to tell you to knock it off!
