Things to Ponder.
I have just cheated my own blog. I've revised yesterday's post and thought I'd throw in something a little more important like what I just found. Our awesome blogging buddy Madeleine Maddocks is hosting a Blogfest over at Scribble and Edit. It sounds like a lot of fun and a little bit of a challenge when you think about it. Head on over there right now and sign up.
Then I found this. It's a great place to go for free exercise videos. Yes, I decided to throw a little aerobics into my mundane life of power walking. You gotta mix things up a bit, and as writers, exercise can fall by the wayside when we're working towards our writing goals. But it's so important that we take care of ourselves. So, with a little help from a free cardio workout in the comfort of your own home, pushing that chair back for twenty minutes is not a big deal. Er, okay so maybe it is. I think I pulled something in my armpit. There is a muscle there. Who knew? My brother suggested I join the gym for support and take a few classes. "In public?" I said. No, no, no. Nobody needs to see me in an exercise class. I have no rhythm whatsoever and I am so glad I took my own advice and stayed in my office. Now I can look like a wet, wounded bird trying to take flight in the privacy of my own home. Thank you little brother. And now you can too. I think we should support each other with our writing but how about our health too. I'm thinking about launching a Biggest Writing Loser group right here on the blog. Once a week, we can share and lean on each other. You can even email me when you're in a drive thru and I'll talk you out of there.I will make you order the apple dippers. I swear I will. What do you think? Word/Weight count Wednesday anyone?
