Secrets of Success

Earn Tv Time With Exercise




I make myself 'earn' minutes to watch TV or play computer games by exercising. ie, to watch 30 minutes of TV, I need 30 minutes of activity. 'activity' includes household chores, so this gets me moving, limits how much junk I watch, and gives me a dual purpose for using the vacuum.

More Information:

I started doing this after reading the Mayo Clinic Diet Book, so they get the credit for planting the seed of this.
