Everyone ages no matter how many products and programs are intended specifically to slow the aging process. It’s a natural part of life to age. The key to aging is to make yourself feel as good as possible through the years of the aging process. Of course, it’s easier to start as early as…
If you have visited the United Kingdom as much as we have you already know that there are products and brands that you love there that you simply cannot buy in the United States no matter how hard you look. What’s a mom to do when she wants British…
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?
Yes, I've been thinking the same thing about myself. I also maintain two sites and my day job is all about being on the computer too. It's a bad combination. I don't have an answer to how to prevent weight gain, but I recently got a Pilates dvd that MIGHT help. If I can just find the time to do it! :)
What's really sad is that I have a DIET blog and have gained more weight since I started it, go figure. I think it's because I'm always thinking about food and recipes. I've also found that if I don't exercise before everyone's up in the morning, I don't have time. I'm too busy blogging.
I absolutely think that blogging (or anything that keeps you sitting at the computer hours on end) discourages getting up and out.
I work from home and am at the computer ALL DAY LONG. Since I bill for my time, I view anything that gets me up from the computer as a money drain...THEN, in my leisure time and kid-free time, I'm blogging...and not exercising.
For me, it's become unhealthy. When I forced myself to take a walk the other day, I was amazed at how good it felt to have my blood actually circulate...and I vowed to do it more often.
My husband suggests that I get up earlier and exercise -- before the work and the urge to sit hits. I've also taken computer breaks and danced around the living room for 5 minutes at a time (much to the entertainment of my neighbor who happened to look at his window).
