Itís easy to get stuck in a rut and forget about your health needs. Heck, this web business stuff is fun, well most of time at least. For a free special report to help you get motivated to lose weightclick here.
Whether youíre putting together a new site, tweaking a sales letter, developing a new ppc campaign, or putting up landing pages, itís all very exciting. Just thinking about potential and possibilities can make even most skeptical jump up and down with joy and enthusiasm.
Yes, itís exciting. You spend hours and hours learning. You set up your website, getting it just right, developing your marketing plan, writing and networking. Sometimes you spend even more hours trying to figure out why things wonít work and how to get unstuck. Ever been there?
Youíve had your head buried in keyboard and before you know it a month has gone by. Your pants are tighter, you have to loosen your belt a notch, you weigh yourself and Yikes! youíve gained 5 lbs.
Itís easy to do. Youíre busy. Youíre starting to see some results with your web business. Youíre getting some sign-ups for your newsletter, meeting people on forums you frequent and maybe youíve even made a sale or two. Hallelujah!
Youíre so excited and pumped that your mind races around all other ideas in your head for even more websites and strategies and you canít wait to start them. Now you spend even more hours on top of other hours you spend in front of computer.
Hold on! Sit back and take a deep breath because another month could go by and you could gain another 5 lbs. or maybe even 10. So I ask you, if you keep doing this how much will you weigh in a year? See what I mean?
It doesnít have to be that way. You can still spend time in front of computer getting your web business even more successful, developing more web sites and control your weight, maybe even lose some.
How, you ask? Well, first thing you have to do is recognize that you canít keep doing what youíve been doing and expect to control your weight. I know itís hard not to fire up computer first thing in morning especially when you canít wait to see how much money you made overnight. Yes, it does happen.
But whether you have good news or bad sitting in your in box before you know it youíre clickiní here and there and two hours have gone by. But, but, you say, I have emails to check, stats to check, I have to visit my forums and on and on and on.
Maybe you brought in your coffee before you sat down. Maybe you even grabbed a bagel or a donut as well. But now itís 10 am. and you havenít even brushed your teeth, washed your face, or combed your hair. Youíre still in your jammies or sweat pants and you figure, oh well, Iíve got lots of work to do today.
So you dive in even deeper. You put up new pages on your web site, brainstorm a new ppc campaign, answer emails and etc, etc.
By now itís mid-afternoon and youíre starved. You open refrigerator and grab easiest things. You go to pantry and grab more easy things. Usually highly processed sugary and starchy stuff. Who has time to cook! Youíve got work to do! And so you sit down with a sandwich, some chips, some cookies or donuts and a soda.
Before you know itís almost dark. The house is a mess, there are papers all over, bed is not made and you still have to take a shower. Oh, and one more thing, how about dinner. Who has time to cook? So you go down to corner junk food drive through because you certainly canít get out of car in those sweat pants.
Whatís wrong with this picture? Sure, it maybe an exaggeration but if youíre ignoring your health itís a recipe for disaster. Being sedentary (sitting in front of computer) and not eating right are bad for your health. Add not exercising to mix and you may not be around long enough to reap rewards of your hard work on that internet business.
