Keeping Active by Terri Reed

As a writer I spend a great deal of time sitting at my computer.  Studies have been conducted on prolonged sitting and the findings are no joke. Here's an article from the Mayo Clinic
To combat all the sitting--at the computer, driving, planes, watching television, reading...the list could go on--I've taken up doing agility with my beautiful Australian Shepherd. 
This is Aubrey. She'll be 3 years old soon. She's a bit of a wild child. 

When my husband and I became semi empty nesters, I needed someone to take care of so I got a puppy. I think I lost my mind a bit. LOL. I'd forgotten how much work raising a puppy can be, especially this breed. But she has been worth every frustration and every tear I shed. 














She is my constant companion and keeps us active. We have a new circle of friends because of this dog. And I have a reason to leave my house at least three times a week to run and play with my girl. I decided to try agility because it is physically and mentally challenging for both the dog and me. 

Keeping active is important. What do you do to stay active?

Buried Mountain Secrets

Synopsis
Nowhere to run. Nowhere to hide.

Can they get off the mountain alive?


Desperate to find her missing teenage brother, Maya Gallo ventures into the Colorado Rockies expecting rough terrain—not deadly treasure hunters. But when she’s caught in their crosshairs, ruggedly handsome mounted patrolman Alex Trevino comes to her aid. The deputy sheriff knows what these bandits are capable of, so getting Maya—and her brother—home safely may be his hardest mission yet

    2. I know the feeling, Terri. We have two...a black lab who is one and a toy poodle who is seven. They are BOTH naughty. LOL

  2. Terri, your pup looks adorable...and so young and energetic!

    Sitting at a computer can be deadly...or so the medical profession claims. I hit the gym as frequently as possible...and walk outside when weather permits.

    Although when I'm on a tight deadline, the only body parts that move are my fingers! :)

    1. I used to go to a gym but then I found myself with excuses. So the dog forces me to get up and go.
      And yes, at deadline time it's so much harder to leave the computer. LOL

  3. Terri, so true. We authors sit way to much. My husband and I are empty nesters as well. After we lost our 14 year old Callie last year, my husband and I were heartbroken. At the end of last year, we adopted a rescue dog from the shelter by the name of Cody. He's smart and energetic and definitely keeps us active.
