No, not a new food delicacy. It is an acronym for Butt In Chair, Hands On Keyboard. For writers, it means to get that butt in the chair, your hands on the keyboard…and write. But while we are getting those word counts in and the chapters accumulating, something else is growing…our butts! LOL

Writing isn’t everything, although with deadlines, it sometimes seems that way. The voices scream in your head and you have to get the stories out onto the paper or the computer screen. Your health is so, so important too. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, aches, pains, headaches, all take you away from what you love to do.

I have a bad habit of going gung-ho into a new workout routine and burning out after a week or so, so I really enjoy the workouts that start slow and build up as you strengthen your muscles and get a healthier routine going.

This is my fave!!! The Buns, Guns, and Abs Challenge. It works the buns and thighs, the arms, and the abs. You do a few of the exercises at the beginning and each day is a little more and a little more until you are doing massive numbers at the end. What I try to do is do it every day (like writing) and try to get to the end without missing a day. If I miss a day I have to go all the way back to Day 1. 😦 Not something I want to do, so I try to not miss a day.

I’m starting back at Day 1 today. Join me in the challenge!

Email me with I’ll take the challenge and I’ll enter you in a drawing for (one) signed paperback copy of Ghostly Intentions (should be available this coming week!)

  1. I have the same problem, Jill. Sitting too long. Not moving. Keyboard stagnation.

    Movement helps. I usually do a few set of stairs–generally on my way to more coffee or tea. Grin.

    What helps me more than anything else during the work day is stretching. I read somewhere (where I cannot remember), that we age in direct correlation to how flexible we are. I’m not sure about the authenticity of that from a medical standpoint, but I do feel better after I do 10-15 minutes of stretching exercises.

    When I can walk outside, that helps immeasurably–good for the brain & the body!
