I thought it’s be fun to share a few humorous comments by various well-known people and book characters in today’s post! Also I’m listing what two famous writers do for exercise to get the creative thoughts flowing and to stay in shape. Physical exercise sharpens the brain and sitting in front of the computer for hours isn’t good. Moving around is important! If you’re visiting this blog, you’re probably a reader or writer or of course, both so leave a comment and share what you do for exercise. You’ll be entered in my Early Spring Giveaway. Details are in the previous post to this one!
By the way, I use a treadmill or try to (it’s hit and miss these days ) and during warmer weather, I go bicycling and swimming. I enjoy plain old walking too.
“I ran three miles, staggered into the lobby, and took the elevator back to my apartment. No point to overdoing this exercise junk. –Stephanie Plum”
— Janet Evanovich (Two for the Dough)
“squats are a form of torture designed by people who don’t need to do squats in the first place”
— Nora Roberts (Bed of Roses)
“My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was sixty. She’s ninety-seven now, and we don’t know where the heck she is.”
— Ellen DeGeneres
“I believe that every human has a finite amount of heartbeats. I don’t intend to waste any of mine running around doing exercises.”
— Neil Armstrong
Romance writer, Debbie Macomber, gets up at an early hour and swims. A typical day for Nora Roberts starts with a workout in the pool or on her elliptical trainer, then she likes to write for eight hours.
So what’s your favorite exercise? How often do you enjoy it?
