Writing and Middle-Aged Spread!
I sit a lot. I have to, I’m a writer.
Coupled with middle age, this is not a good recipe for a healthy life.
So in order to combat midde-aged-spread (how lovely) I have a game plan.
- I’ve taken up baking again. Not pastries and cakes, well not all the time. But vegetarian and healthy foods. I have a huge appetite, and eating less is just not going to happen. Here’s one of my favourite recipes.
- Painting! Owning a boat keeps you fit, when we move, furling ropes, climbing ladders (for locks) and handling lines keeps me fit. Plus painting is a regular task. We’re thankfully at the point where we just need to touch up our paintwork. Here’s my latest project. I love this anchor winch, it’s functional and beautiful!
If you are a writer/author or sit in an office, what are your tactics to stay fit and healthy?
