“I say that I hike and do yoga. Although in the last couple months, there hasn’t been much of that going on, but as a general rule, I tend to move. I don’t go to a gym ever. I don’t diet ever. I used to diet but sometime after the eighties, it made me miserable, but I do like to walk, run, and I do like to surf when I can just to warm it up, and I do enjoy doing yoga when I can get there.”
