If you really feel like you need an hour of TV before you go to bed at night, TAKE IT! But maybe try to throw in some of these while you are already sitting there:
But why stop there? Try looking at your day from an outsider's point of view. If someone were watching you on TV all day, what would they say you spend all your time on? I know what the answer would be for me! People would see that I spend a ridiculous amount of time on the computer. Solution? My husband propped our desk up about a foot above the ground, so now if I want to use the computer, I have to do it standing up! This setup has helped me to stay in motion more often and has also helped tone down my addiction to the computer. :)
Last year my sacrifice came in the form of TIME. I wanted to train for a half marathon, but the only time I could go running without getting a babysitter was early in the morning before Kevin left to work. That meant running at 5 am 4 times a week! It was brutal training my body to get up that early, but eventually I started to really enjoy the alone time, as well as the peace and quiet that comes with running at 5 am.
And if you want to be REALLY extreme like my adorable husband, you could try biking or running to all your destinations :) I know that sounds crazy, but the only way my husband could find time to workout without taking him away from his family, was to bike 7 miles to work in the morning, cross the street to the gym at his lunch break for some plyo or weights, and then run home after work! Yeah... the man has enough energy to power an entire country!
Anyway, while I don't expect ANYONE to try my husbands approach to working out, I want people to see that where there is a will there IS ABSOLUTELY a way!
