Secrets of Success

Tv Is Brain Candy.




I have to earn TV time. I DVR my favorite shows and they are not allowed to be played until I exercise. So, if I don't want to find out on the news who went home on the Biggest Loser then I've got to lace up my sneakers! I record about 1 hour then I hop on my elliptical. No commercials!

  • Great idea!! I've done the same thing...

    I've also challenged myself to walking the stairs during commercials (before I had a dvr!) Had to keep walking up and down the stairs until the commercials were over! Man, some shows had a TON of commercials!! - by DEBBIE98632
  • that's a good idea. i really wish i had a treadmill at home so i could do it while i watch tv. do the same thing you do, as a reward, but do it while i'm exercising :)
