I got out of bed at 7 am this morning with every intention of getting dressed, lacing up my new Nikes and attempting a jog around the block. Its now 9:21 am and I’m still sitting on the couch in my pajamas.
Aside from my own laziness and lack of desire to exercise, who is the culprit in my idleness? Facebook! I went online * just for a sec * to update my status about my morning walk and suddenly two hours had passed by. Now, admittedly, I didn’t spend all that time on Facebook. I also spent a little time on Twitter, balanced my checkbook, fed the dogs, cats, and prairie dog, did a load of dishes, bought some Groupons…basically, I just stalled until it was too hot to go outside and told myself that I’d work out on the elliptical trainer instead.
Yet, I am still sitting on the couch, laptop in front of me, and now not only am I not dressed, not exercising, but now I’m blogging.
Its too bad that blogging doesn’t burn calories.
