After I complete all the things I need to and want to each week, I have 15 hours left over. Now some of that time is spent driving to and from work or the gym and running errands and grocery shopping. But on top of that I know that some of that time is spent watching tv.
I try to stretch and do my knee exercises while I watch tv, but I am still spending time watching tv instead of reading or doing something else productive. I think I need to try and give up tv and see what happens, but its tough because I really enjoy a few shows each week like Biggest Loser and Law & Order.
Back when we first got married, we didn't have tv for the first couple of weeks and even though I didn't like it at the time I kind of wish we hadn't signed up for cable. Its just so easy to sit on the couch and flip on the tv.
In a couple of weeks I think I would like to give up tv and see how I do!
