As a generation cultivated to work mid-level white-collar managerial jobs in fluorescent highlighted office spaces, it’s no surprise we are fatter now than our parents were at this stage in the game. We drive to work, sit at a desk, and will die from cubicle induced diseases.
Thankfully, in the late eighties, the little pink hot shorts wearing RN Mary Ann Wilson created “Sit and Be Fit” on PBS. If only I had found this when I started my career I would have years of exercise without the exercise. Her soothing, caressing, kind voice will transfix you to “work the wrists”, “tap those toes”, “pound your fists”, “shake it high”, “try your other leg”, “push, push, push”. Just tap the fat away!
