Wednesday Writer Workout Wii Tip

It's Wednesday. Are you moving? Everyday? Ok, me neither. But I'm trying. I aim for 4 days a week so that I move more days than I don't. I am noticing small changes. The pews at church don't hurt as much. I can stand more comfortably for longer periods of time. And I'm getting this little bump above my elbow that the doctor assures me is a triceps muscle. Now I'm focusing on the great divide, the ponderosa spread, the wide load – what I affectionately refer to as Writers' Butt. Believe it or not, I can minimized it, and maximize it, in all the right place with a simple step added to the Wii workout.

TIP: This tip works best when playing 9 holes of wii golf. In between holes, do 10 deep knee lunges, five on each leg. By the time you get to the last (ninth) hole, you'll have done 80 lunges! Believe me, you'll feel it the next day. And the next time you do it, it'll be worse, but I promise it gets better after that. You'll work muscles you didn't even know you had! Don't forget to stretch.

Now if I could just stop eating the kids' leftover pizza crusts.

¡Buen Provecho!


  1. Pizza crusts aren't the bad part: it's the pepperoni and cheese. I know... well at least my getting-gigglier-every-day bottom knows. : )
    Good for you for getting up and moving!

  2. thanks, E.R.! Anything not to look at my Q anymore :) Actually, I'm working on my logline for a writers conference next month. About as fun as the Q, but at least there are fewer words to agonize over!

  3. Sounds like you know what you're doing. I am starting my workout tomorrow. Seriously, the writers butt has got to go!

  4. I hear ya, Deanna! God speed tomorrow - for both of us. It's so much easier just to sit :)
