Tv Is Brain Candy.

This Sparked Me!

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!

    This is such a great idea! Only problem for me is that I don't watch very much TV just The Amazing Race, Friday Night Lights and Survivor.

    This an excellent idea. I think I'm going to incorporate this into my plan.

    How cool...never thought of making myself "earn" TV time. Will definately have to give it a try!

    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!!

    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 :)
