Earn Tv Time With Exercise


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

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.

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

    Great idea! I wanted to design a treadmill powered TV; you're doing it virtually! I think I'm going to be a copycat
Thank you!
