OK, I admit it. I watch way too much TV. Do you? I have found some nice walking videos on the Internet...simple, but moving. So while I watch TV I also walk a mile or two with Leslie Sansone. If you like Jane Fonda, you can walk with her instead. Keep moving.
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.
