You Can Watch Tv Doing Something Other Than Sitting On The Couch

This Sparked Me!

I discovered that I was avoiding a work out so that I could watch a television show. Then I remembered Tyra Banks saying she had removed her sofas so she would get on the treadmill or elliptical during her favorite shows. Now I march in place, do side steps & use hand weights during my favorite tv.

    I too bought a Leslie walk dvd & I learned the steps & do them when I know I need to get up & make those 10,000+ steps!

God bless & Thanks!

    Yes, an excellent tip! I've set up a small TV right in front of my treadmill now, so if my favorite shows are on, I won't sit on the couch to watch...I make myself walk during the show. This way I get at least half an hour in without even noticing it!
