How I turned World of Warcraft into a positive.

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

I'm a SAHD, and when I'm not with the family, or doing stuff around the house, You can generally find my butt in front of the computer - playing World of Warcraft. I don't watch much TV. I don't drink, gamble, smoke, or hang out with my buddies. Well, over the 6 years I have been playing, I put on a lot of weight while playing... It's easy to do... just grab some food and some iced tea 2x a night, and before you know it, you're up 50 pounds in 6 years, plus or minus. This is my new idea.

    sounds perfect to me, I'm a gaming addict, and a web addict. I've got the carpal tunnel to prove it and here I am, typing instead of doing Wii sports. LOL

    You sound like a man with a plan! It's emoticon how you can turn a negative (what made you gain weight) into a positive. emoticon

    This caught my eye because in my world, there is NO positive about WOW. It cost my son his long-term relationship when the mother of his 11 and 7 year-old boys found someone new in the chat rooms there and left him. As you can imagine, World of Warcraft is not a phrase I like to hear.

But, being on the computer for hours is also something I do, even if it's in other pursuits. So I was interested when you spelled out your strategy. Maybe I'll set up my Wii Fit and do 15-minutes of cardio each time I read a member blog and comment on it. That should have two least an hour of cardio a day, plus not so many long-winded posts in other people's blogs. emoticon
