Warning for all computer addicts!

This is a warning for anyone who spends their time in front of the computer, like writers.

I spend most days (from 1 AM til about 8 PM) in front of the computer. I don’t even get up to eat; my hubby brings my food and puts it on the desk next to me for me to eat between paragraphs. This being said, it shouldn’t be a surprise that I am not in very good shape.

Yesterday, I went shopping for new outfits to take to Pensacola Beach for the Silken Sands conference. I walked the mall for six hours. Can you guess what I feel like today? My entire body aches, from the top of my head to the tips of my toes. I think that even my hair hurts … yep, had to check, my hair hurts too.

Now, all of you computer addicts out there heed my warning. GET UP AND MOVE!!!!  I know it’s hard, especially if a story is flowing smoothly from you, but you must not forget that your muscles need to move or they will not work for you.

I am making a commitment right now, with all of you as my witnesses, to exercise at least ten minutes every day. I might need some of you to kick my rump into gear if I don’t stick with it, so be prepared. Who will join me in project: get off your rump?
