Lost 10 Lbs Watching T.V.


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I bought a stationary bike back in January and made a deal with myself. I got really into this t.v. series that had been out for long enough to be canceled and I bought the whole series. Each episode is 45 mins long ( no commercials) and I sit on that bike and watch my show every morning. Sometimes twice a day. Anyhow now I decided I will no longer watch t.v. at all without being on my bike even if its only 15 miles an hour I still have to be on it. emoticon

I started at 13 miles and hr. I am now up to 24 miles an hour... YOU TOO CAN DO THIS!

    This is completely my MO. I love it! I download seasons from iTunes and watch them on my iPad at the gym. It's awesome!

    Keep up the good work! I try to do the same thing on my treadmill. During programs, I walk at a 3 to 3.5 mph then kick it up to 3.8 to 4 (depending how I feel) and set the incline higher as well during commercials. Long commercial breaks are killers right now! :)
