Turn Off The Cable


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Since taking our Cable down to just basic tv, I suddenly have a ton of time to exercise.

At first it was really hard because I missed alot of (useless) shows I had gotten addicted to. I used to sit on the couch and wish I had a more active adventurous lifestyle. Now that I don't even have the option of wasting time in front of the TV, I have that more active lifestyle I've always wanted

    Getto140, it took me 2 years to convince him we should turn it off. He used to say he couldn't live without it and that we would be so bored. We hardly miss it at all! And now if we sit down and watch a DVD we get antsy to get up and move. And to think I used to spend hours upon hours in front of the tv.

    I wish I could convice my husband that we could do this! I don't watch much TV, but he is glued to it.

    I turned off the cable completely and have really been happy with that decision. I have so much more free time. I don't ever feel like I'm pulling myself away from TV to go out and take a walk.
