Healthy Writers Club-- A New Beginning

Jan 18, 2013

Okay, folks, it's time for a revival! I totally flunked at being any kind of healthy writer lately, but I'm ready to jump back in. Once again, every Friday I'll be reporting my progress on the healthy front and occasionally attempting to write something clever about health/writing. I know a bunch of you in the group have kept up your posts and your healthy living-- you inspire me. Thanks for keeping it up.

Luckily, for Christmas I got a whole bunch of things to help me in my quest to be more healthy. I've got comfy (and cute!) new exercise clothes, a Nike + device to help track my running progress, and a Zumba game for the new X-box Kinect. Due to all the nasty sickness in my house, I've hardly had a chance to use any of it. But now that I've finally beaten off the influenza, I'm rarin' to go! I even have stats this week.

Weekly stats: 15 minutes of Zumba (yeah, kinda sad, but I only started back to exercise yesterday)
In-flight entertainment favorite: watching my 3-year-old dancing along with me
Coolest moment: feeling like a rockstar even though I probably looked like a spaz
Hardest moment: finishing and feeling like I could sleep for an hour

So, my friends, jump in with me!  If you're already a member, keep up the healthiness and the posting! If you've got a New Year's resolution to get healthy, join the Healthy Writers Club! Post your progress any day of the week, and jump around to see how your fellow groupies are doing. Let's encourage each other to occasionally get our butts out of the chair and into action!

I just signed up...and I already posted for this week, so my first official update will be included in next weeks end of the week post. But I will say that I lost 6 pounds last week! (YAY ME)

I'm excited that you organized this!

I have not exercised at all this week. But I made sugar free honey cookies!

L said...

thanks. You've motivated me to get back on track.

Yeah, when I started on the exercise bike again this year I could only do 15mins as well. But I've kept at it and now I'm up to 25mins!

So glad to see you back, I posted late this evening too, but am just now getting back into the swing of things due to the flu too.

The sun was out today and so inspirational!

I walked about a half a mile today. That's about it for the month. I have been eating healthy...except for the cookies.

I busted out the P90X and am getting back into shape. I'm sore, but in a great way!

I ran 16 miles this week! I don't think I've ever done that before! AND I turned in round 2 of revisions to my agent his week! I feel very healthy! Nice change. ;)

Good for you, Shallee, keep it going and you will soon increase the 15 minutes to double the time.

Feeling like a rock star when you might look like a spaz is the best!
