I've always been a gamer however being a gamer means sitting on your butt for extended amounts of time & not exercising.
So, in order to play 4 hours of Xbox 360, I have to spend 2 hours exercising, at least 3 times a week. Of course, during the semester, 2 hours of exercise = 4-6 hours of study time. Funny how that works out!
I try to snack on fruit & healthier snacks during game time whether it's on a console or gaming on the PC.
I keep 2 windows open at once.I hate waiting while Cindy Crawford drinks her water & runs out the door with her dogs. So, while I'm on SP, I also keep a 1 minute Facebook game open & when something is advertising or loading, I play a 1 minute game.
This way, I don't hurl my computer at the wall or avoid getting on SP at all because it is too boring with all the waiting.
