Writer's Butt Begone!

"How many calories do you burn during Sitting-writing, desk work?"

44 calories AN HOUR!!!

That's for a 41 year young gorgeous female, 62 inches tall and weighing (ahem) 126 lbs.

Go here and see how many calories you lose PER HOUR just by clicking the mousie and staring at the computer screen all day.

3 hours of blogging and I get to eat a chocolate mini muffin!! Hooorah!

Disclaimer: this is JUST FOR FUN! :-)

Charlie says: I like my butt.


Bloggie friends, Spring is here!!!

I wouldn't worry about your butt, Kitty. I'm sure Bassa would find it sexy!

Theresa Milstein said...

This weekend, I just noticed how much weight has crept on. I'm going to have to sit even more to burn more calories.

Charlie, gorgeous as usual.

m.q said...

The Words Crafter said...

In a couple hours, you could eat a candy bar! This was fun; I checked it out :)

Brian said...

If Charlie and I chase a mouse does that count?

Katnip Lounge said...

Hey! We are exactly the same!!! Well, I'm older, but other than that...

Lydia K said...

If only it was 440. Sigh.

LTM said...

ooo! Charlie needs a good ear scratchin! :o) And you make a good point. It's important to get up and move around every once in a while... :D <3

Jane Kennedy Sutton said...

How exciting – I didn’t know sitting in front of a computer screen burned any calories. I’m going to go eat some chocolate.

Summer Ross said...

It sure seems is hinting here in Wyoming. great picture of charlie! I have resorted to going to the gym- LOL

Au and Target said...

Does petting furry butts get you more kudos and calorie count?

Susan Kane said...

Cats burn gazillion calories in mind control, and world domination. Right?

Donna Hosie said...

I would reply, but I am too busy eating cake to type properly!

notesfromnadir said...

I couldn't take the test because I don't know how tall I am in inches & am too lazy to look it up. I guess that means I don't want to know how many [or few!] calories I burn.

Charlie looks very comfy!

Clarissa Draper said...

That's good to know because I sit on my arse a lot!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I think I'll stop using my computer and hand write everything...I'll burn 46 calories an hour if I do it that way. :) Fun stuff Jennifer!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Old Kitty - as Spring is here .. we can give ourselves another life .. a little walking ... thank goodness .. butt-sitting is a bit painful after a while ..

Glad Charlie is still resting like there is no tomorrow! Oh to be a cat .. sometimes! Cheers Hilary

the writing pad said...

Whooopppeeee ... This is great news - off to calculate how many hours I need to do for a sausage roll ... (bearing in mind, I've done some hours this week, already...) An excellent piece of v worthwhile scientific research Old Kitty - Thanks :-)
Hope you are fully better now
All best
Karla

Mr Puddy said...

Charlie, Stay there and ignore the chocolate muffin, Please !

Madeleine said...

LOL! That is a hoot. I think I've used up all my allowance already! :O)

Al said...

That means autumn for us :-(

Kea said...

Gees, I'm burning only 30 calories an hour. Let's see, 8 hours of sitting at the office computer all day, that's only a regular sized dark chocolate bar in calories.

Susan Fields said...

Spring is definitely here, too! It was in the 80s yesterday - hooray for shorts weather!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We agree that spring is here this week - we hope winter isn't making an encore next week!!
We're sure you don't have writer's butt Jenn. We don't think Charlie has one either.
luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Boonie S said...

I love my muffin too.
Thanks for this fun and informative post.

All the best, Boonie

Hart Johnson said...

It is a NICE butt, Charlie. I'd like my butt too, if I had such a handsome tail.

Keep in mind your BRAIN uses tons of calories, so if you THINK while you write, it is a better workout.

Bossy Betty said...

No! I want to hear that blogging burns up 500 calories an hour!!!

Marg said...

I don't want to know how few calories we use just sitting here and typing.
Charlie, you are looking mighty good.
Charlie, tell Mom that we finally mailed that book to her. Our Mom is just so slack. But we know she will enjoy it.

Steph Sinkhorn said...

Well at least I'm burning calories SOMEWHERE! Haha :D

Lydia K said...

I wish it was more like 440 calories, lol!

Talli Roland said...

After all the chocolate I ate last weekend, I don't even want to think about my butt!

Tracy said...

Oh Heaven's to Betsy...I don't even WANT to know how many calories I do NOT burn...just as I was telling my husband we need to go to DQ tonight since we are in the 80's today!
calories....ice cream....calories....ice cream...I take the ice cream!
Enjoy your day friend...

Ginger Jasper said...

I just love your expression Charlie.. Now where are those muffins mum.. Hugs GJ xx

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Um, that's WAY better than me. I burn...0 calories per hour. that's right. Bugger.

The Golden Eagle said...

Those are some interesting statistics. :D

Words A Day said...

Enjoy that mini muffin! Now I wished I'd timed my writing today so I'd know what treat I've earned!

Lynda R Young said...

lol. That doesn't cover the chocolate I eat. I guess I can't give up the treadmill yet ;)

ABBY said...

MOL!
We love it!!!

Hello dear Charlie!
WE think you have a nice bun too.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Oh my! I'm sure I should be up and moving more and not sitting by a computer all day long.

stacy said...

Honey, as little as you weigh you have nothing to worry about. You burn calories any faster and you'll blow away in a strong wind! : )

Jackee said...

LOL! Good to know. I've been counting calories for the first time in my life and now I know what writing and blogging burns. :o) Thanks!

Hugs!
