Couch Potatoes No More!

12 Aug

Okay, well, that’s an outright lie…Chuck and I are truly couch potatoes and there is hardly an antidote for that. HOWEVER – we have finally got the perfect setup – our (very nice, if I must say so myself) elliptical machine is angled directly in front of a large-screen TV in the basement living room, so now, while we watch TV we can take turns breathing heavy and making ourselves beyond sweaty without each other’s assistance. Instead of giving up television altogether (which would really be the healthy choice) our new lifestyle means NOT cutting TV out, but making it a teenie, tiny bit healthier. Granted, I can’t even finish 30 minutes at the moment without collapsing on the floor in a red-faced, panting, sweaty heap. But, stay tuned…I will periodically be sharing the results of our “healthier living”. (By the way, I’m counting WW points again, so be supportive when I’m crying shamelessly for cheesecake and sugary drinks.)

And as a testament to our couch-potato-ness turned exercise, this is the lineup of tv shows I’m excited to see again this season:

  • Monk
  • Psych
  • Heroes
  • LOST
  • Desperate Housewives
  • House
  • Supernatural (this is the current work-out show…we’re watching this series starting with Season I and working our way up to the present…not necessarily high quality thrills, but still pretty entertaining)
  • Pushing Daisies
  • Eureka
  • The Office
  • Family Guy
  • Bones
  • New Amsterdam (not quite sure if this one is returning, but we enjoyed its first season)

Ahhh…if television was a drug, we would have no good veins left. But, now that we are turning it into a healthier choice, hopefully, a couple hundred episodes into the future we will be, perhaps not quite svelte, but we hope a little less potato-ey.
