There was a point in my life where I couldn't imagine life without DVR, much less life without TV. Well, when a friend needed his TV back after graciously letting me borrow it for several months in my new place, I was forced to face this dilemma. I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel a slight twinge of anxiety at first (a new TV isn't exactly in my budget, or at least there are about 3 big things I want before a TV), but after wise words from friends and my mom and a little reflection time, I got kind of excited about not having a TV. My mind swirled with activities to fill my time in place of ridiculous Kardashian re-runs. And while there are things I miss about having a TV, especially since it can get a little quiet living alone, I'm having a lot of fun learning how to be my own best friend :) (Thanks Sarah).
Here are some of the things I plan on doing instead of watching TV:
- Bought a book (Great Gatsby) and can't wait to spend nights snuggled on my couch reading
- Bike Rides!
- More time at the gym (because I'm a big Lakers fan, and the playoffs are sorta a big deal to me, I just plan my gym times around games. Which means I spend waaay more time at the gym than what I'm used to. Gotta love uphill walking on the treadmill for an hour!)
- Spend more time focusing on my health coaching
- Go places alone. Have you ever gone somewhere to eat by yourself? It's fun :)
Now if I could just delete my facebook...
