I’m thrilled that my writing career is taking off, but I’ve noticed an unpleasant side-effect. My expanding behind. Writing requires me to spend a lot of time in my chair, especially when pushing deadlines. I guess I ignored my burgeoning waistline while caught up in the excitement of my book release. My wakeup call came when I attempted to cram this voluptuous body in a pair of green cords. Holy crap, my butt looked like two pigs wrestling in a gunnysack.
Obviously it was time to do something, but what? I don’t love to cook, am kind of lazy, and in my heart attack years. As I brainstormed ideas, I realized there were probably others like me, stuck behind a desk all day, needing to put a little oomph and humor in their health routine.
Inspiration struck—Fluffy Friday.
Each Friday I’ll be featuring recipes, health tips and stories from authors and readers. I have a bit of an obsession with health and beauty articles and will be trying out different exercise plans and products. I’ll also be tracking, no matter how painful, my progress with getting healthy. No more living in denial.
So here are my goals. Get my big butt moving, gain energy, and drop a couple of sizes by making healthy changes. But let me make clear, there's a quality of life issue I refuse to give up. Did I mention I'm kind of lazy? Hopefully a few of you will take this ride with me.
If you have a success story, recipes, or anything else you’d like to share, please contact me. I’d be thrilled to feature you on Fluffy Friday.
Next week author, CJ Ellisson, is going to share some kickin’ gluten free recipes with us. Trust me, you’re not going to want to miss this Fluffy Friday segment we’ve lovingly labeled Lazy Cooks. Did I mention I don’t love to cook?
So there you have it. Follow me on Twitter or Facebook or join the site to make sure you don’t miss the fun.
