Since I took up writing a few years ago I’ve spent more time sitting each day than I’ve ever done in my life. I’ve always been a skinny bean, but lately, yes, I’m packing about 20 lbs more than I’d like to.
Something needs to be done before I end up looking like this!
When I came to the States in 1996, I weighed 135 lbs at a height of 5’7″. I could eat anything I wanted to, and never had to exercise.
The difference between then and now?
Then, I lived in London, one of the great walking cities of the world, and I had two young children that kept me moving; now I live in Los Angeles, one of the great driving cities of the world, my children are at college, and I sit at my desk all day.
Walking my dog, Ivy, prevents me from seizing up all together but getting a really good workout with her takes me away from writing for longer than I’d like. So here’s the solution, courtesy of Arthur Slade, who showed me the light.
I’ll keep you posted on how it goes…
