As writers, we’re sedentary often. I mean hours and hours a day. That can be detrimental to your health and your waistline. So this week we thought we share some of our tips on what we do to stay healthy.
Last year I bought a treadmill with a desk on it. I used it all the time at first, but I made the mistake of putting it in the window, thinking the scenery would be nice. The problem? The window is southern exposure which means in the summer its HOT. I can’t walk for more than a couple of minutes without sweating like crazy.
Rethinking what I need to do to stay healthy, I’ve recently modified my diet. I removed bread from my diet and I can’t believe it, I’m losing weight. Bread is my kryptonite. I love bread and this time of year? Zucchini Bread, Banana Bread, Pumpkin Bread. You name it, it’s available. But, I’m liking where this is going so far and will keep it up for a while. I imagine there will come a time when it isn’t working anymore and I’ll have to change it up again. By that time, I’ll be able to walk in the window again, so there’s that.
I’ve also cut my portions down quite a bit. The Biker and I just came back from vacation and while traveling we split all of our lunches. Hamburgers, fries, you name it, we split it. You know what? I lost weight while on vacation. Almost unheard of, right?
What do you do to stay healthy? I’d love some tips, then let’s hop over and see what my fellow bloggers do to stay in shape.
