I'm beginning to wonder if blogging is making me fat. I started blogging shortly after having my second child, and I'm still holding on to that extra "baby fat." Now that I am running two sites, I use my baby's nap time as work time, not work-out time, and when the work is finally done, I'm too exhausted to exercise! It's a vicious cycle!
Maybe my real problem is managing my time properly. (my house would agree)
How do you prevent weight gain when blogging requires so much sitting?
Hi Amy, I definitely think that all that time in front of the computer puts on the pounds... And in my case, blogging also makes you sick. I have been spending so much time starting my blog (DagmarBleasdale.com), I have been up for weeks until 1 in the morning and am now paying the price with being really sick. I have some kind of virus that I am sure I would have doddged if my immunity would have been up to par. So here we are, doing what we love, writing about being a mommy and sharing resources and information, and we get fat and sick :) I will make it a point to get outside more, to take a walk during the day, and that I get to bed no later than midnight.
Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive…
