Good morning friends and goddesses.
I've decided Exercise should be shortened to Xrcs so we can put it in the four letter word category. Its like cleaning the litter box, a necessary evil.
My idea of exercise is walking, so much easier than lifting weights or trying to get my creaking muscles to move in something that resembles a jog or a run instead of a shuffle. I work during the day and write at night so I try to get out and walk at lunch. Which is fine and dandy till hot weather hits and I go back to work smelling like the great out of doors. So I'm trying a new method. It's probably not what trainers would recommend but it fits in my schedule. I write until my brain--along with other parts 0f my anatomy--goes numb then get up and exercise for five or ten minutes. Then I sit down and write until that brilliant thought eludes me, jump up and exercise, then sit down and write again.
This serves a two fold purpose: it gets me off my rump and it wakes my slumbering brain cells. It's probably not as good as working out for a set block of time but at least I can say I'm doing something.What methods do you use to stay in shape?
My quiz for the day, from The Crystal: What is Christopher Saint's alias? If you know the answer please send it to me at and I'll send you a deck of Ellora's Cave/Cerridwen Press playing cards.
Enjoy your Saturday.
