I'm hungry. Staying in front of the computer, reading, typing, posting, more reading, clicking, looking after my kid, and a lot more typing, makes me really hungry this very early 5 in the morning. I've been myLotting (while viewing some PTC sites) for about 6 hours. Makes my head and neck, wrists, fingers, and tummy very very painful. I can't order food yet. The delivery service starts at 7am. From time to time I snack at cereals, wheat bread, and biscuits. But I ran out of stack and I can't go out to the nearest 24-hour mini-store. Can somebody cook for me? I can't get up from my chair. ^^v A nice warm chicken and soup plus crackers will do... oh yeah, I think I have some crackers left here... bon apetite! So, do you eat while myLotting?

I don't think I will do that,coz I can not type efficiency while eating,further more,I don't want my keyboard or mouse be sticked with oil or rice.lol`~Normally,my lunch or dinner time will be finished within half an hour,thus it's not a problem for me to leave mylot for such a short time~

That's good... yeah, I always have to clean boyfriend's keyboard and mouse because he eats his meal, snacks, drinks colas, pizzas, chocolates, in front of the tube, either watching anime, his favorite sitcoms, TV shows, programming work, updating his websites, surfing, anything... he can't get up from his seat in front of the tube. Computer is his life. And yeah, mouse and keyboard are sticky... lol

Really? Thanks for that info. We just can't keep ourselves from eating while in front of the tube, though. Bad habit I guess.. I remember my dad used to get mad when we eat in front of the TV set. But we're all grown up now, and he's kinda lenient about it. My mom is like that too so I think we got it from her. Maybe it's part of all of us, I mean, multitasking. But still, table manners - eating on the dining table is still practiced by some.

Surely sitting in front of the computer for such a long time indeed demands for food. I always place a bottle of water and a packet of biscuits before i start myloting. And i have a liitle daughter too to look after so apart from food and water there are toys also to entertain my daughter. So that i can mylot for long hours without disturbing my stomach or my daughter.

You're a boyscout! I used to do that, but I'm very distracted now, no momentum.. We're very much doing the same. While myLotting I put my baby in her crib with some toys, play some DVDs so she can just watch. but after an hour she gets bored and remembers me. lol ^^v

That's the time that I get to stand up. If she eats, I'll eat too. If she takes a bath, I'll take one too... But when she's in front of the laptop, and daddy's using his PC, there's no way I can do myLot... I'll eat later when she eats. I can stand up now even she's with her Aunt. Time's running.... ^^v

Hello,Baby! I never mix different activities in one time and at the same place.Eating is an activity which has its own place and time.Similarly working in computer is an activity which is done in the computer table where there is no place for eating foods.So eat your foods peacefully while eating and don't engage your mind elsewhere else you will face digestive problem.Do one work at one time.Thanx.

Good for you... I bet you're a very orderly person. I tend to be OC at times, I want everything in place.. but when I have a lot of things in my head, organizing is not at the top of my list. I wanted to eat at the dining table, but due to time constraints, I need to multitask. ^^v Yeah, I am faced with lots of digestive problems right now, hehe!

Since i am preoccupied on posting new discussion and sharing my views i dont wanna spend time preparing any meals at all lol. I usually do that when i am alone. But when my husband is around ofcourse i need to prepare him meal even how busy i am.

Yes, as mothers, our husbands and kids are our priorities. hehe! But when it comes to ourselves, we skimp on food since we have lots of things in our head. We wanted to do and finish our tasks all at the same time. When the kid is around, we can't do this (myLotting for example), so we take advantage of the little time we have. ^^v I hope we can get to enjoy our meals even while myLotting, hehe!

lol don't worry, I don't mind. Well then tell your mom to cook something nice for you so your mind will revert to eating first. I know your mom will love to see you on the table..join dinner with her.

At least you have something to that keep you busy and at the same time, enjoyable. But please do not skip main meals. I tend to do that when I'm very excited with what I'm doing. I used to eat while on the go. I'm always in a hurry eating. Sometimes I want to slow down a bit and chew my food, enjoy every inch of it. ^^v What are you munching right now?

I am always eating when I am Mylotting, it's hungry work for sure! As well as thirsty work and I am fortunate in that my mum brings me up a nice cup of black hot coffee and I have a box of biscuits on my desk. I also eat my dinner whilst at the computer as well. First thing of a morning I will get my cereal and bring it up and check my emails and start Mylotting as I am munching away. Right now I have just eaten a few digestive biscuits as my supper because it's 10pm here.

I only eat while mylotting when I am terribly hungry,lol. But recently most of the time I eat when I am watching movies online. I cannot concentrate in Mylot if I am eating. But I can eat when I am watching movies because what I can do is just use my eyes. Lol. Anyway,I love eating when sitting in front of my pc,I think this has been my bad habit.

Yeah, hey... It's hard to concentrate on myLot while eating and vice versa. I do that too, eating while watching fave movies. Yes, it's a bad habit of most people, especially those whose lives revolve around the computer. I just hope we'll find a healthy food to chew on while myLotting... Have you watched the animated movie Wall-E? I don't want us to turn out like that.. ^^v

I would love to listen to music while myLotting too. But I can't concentrate if I have sounds ringing in my ears, especially if I love the song that's playing. Lately I wasn't capable of multi-tasking unlike before. Well, at least I get to focus on 1 thing, than do it half done. ^^v

Hey there! Yeah, sometimes I do. I can't get off of my seat while I'm mylotting. I eat biscuits, cookies, bread, fries, junk foods(my favorite)lol, etc.. and a nice hot chocolate drink. Yummy. Happy posting!!

Biscuits, cookies, bread come in handy. But I do hope I can get to eat a full time every once in a while since reading and thinking is mentally draining. I just bought a mocha flavored biscuit.. loving it! ^^v cheers!

I see. You have a day job. That's cool. At least you have time to spend enjoying your meal, and you need that extra time off since you work hard. Your body and mind need to rest. ^^v What's your favorite snack? Do you do myLot at home?

Sometimes I eat while mylotting If I'm really hungry. But most of the times I eat my snack first before I start mylotting. I just often bring the pitcher of iced tea with me. Have a nice day..

What's your favorite snack while myLotting? Yes, you should drink every so often. I hope you drink lots of water too, because iced tea can have some sugar. Anyway, it's a great boost. I enjoy iced tea with loads of ice. A glass full of ice, then pour iced tea on it. ^^v

I am at the moment. I am eating a beetroot, tomato and cheese sandwich. However I can't really enjoy it as I keep stopping to type while i'm chewing. I ususally have a cup of tea next to me while I'm mylotting though. I find it's a good way to get my water intake for the day also. I don't realise that I've drunk 2 litres of water while i've been sitting here on mylot!

Wow.. that's very healthy meal, coffeeshot. Good thing you're not drinking coffee to keep you awake, lol... Drinking 2 liters of water is good. I'm glad you're taking care of your health as well. It takes me 30 minutes to finish a loaf of bread. hehe!

hehe! Thanks for the compliment. I always share what I have in my mind especially regarding what I do with myLot or while in myLot, haha! Unfortunately, no... spending 6 hours in front of the monitor while myLotting doesn't mean I get to spend a lot of time typing and posting. I make sure that my posts are of substance. That eats up a lot of time. And I read first the comments of other myLotters who already commented before I make mine. ^^v

I do and it depends though. When I still feel like myLotting and I get hungry for lunch or dinner, I take my laptop downstairs with me , plop it on the dining table and I eat while I mylot. It's so much harder to do that when I decide to eat a meal in bed. But I still munch on a snack once in a while. Now, I'm trying to not do it anymore so I make myself log out of myLot, eat and then come back again. At least, eating would give us that break from typing continuously. Bye, babyfuzz!

It's good to hear that. We need to take some rest once in a while so we won't get burned out in the things we do. Unfortunately, I don't have that luxury. hehe! So, eat for me, Ms. SaintAnne, will you? ^^v .. and yeah, myLot is very addicting. I can't get my hands off the pc once I started. lol

I eat while I am mylotting quite a bit. I consider it multitasking. I actually ate my dinner, Chinese takeout, in front of the computer tonight while I was mylotting and catching up on checking my email.

Good for you. We need some extra energy. I miss eating Chinese food, especially rice in a box. That's very handy specially if you're out in the movies, and you want to eat rice, or in front of the tube (tv or computer). ^^v
