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).
Whenever two people form a relationship, there are moments when one might believe the other is cheating on them. Whether it's out of insecurity or there are signs that just don't seem right, it is painful and betraying. The good news, there are also signs that strongly suggest your man is not running around. …
Whether we like it or not, we will all at one point have to wear the event planning cap. Why is that? Because we are human, and along with our humanity come life celebrations: baby showers, weddings, graduations, anniversaries, retirements, funerals, and the list goes on and on. I'm sure that I don't…
