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 inrepparttar 131554 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.

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 openrepparttar 131563 refrigerator and grabrepparttar 131564 easiest things. You go torepparttar 131565 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,repparttar 131566 bed is not made and you still have to take a shower. Oh, and one more thing, how about dinner.
