And Another Thing: TV and Exercise

New feature

It's called, And Another Thing

Here goes:

And another thing.

People who buy a
new television with a screen that's larger than 19 inches should
also buy a piece of exercise equipment for the same room.

The exercise equipment should be used.

Perhaps the exercise equipment should be used proportionally to the amount of TV watching. Ask your
family doctor about what kind of exercise you should be doing.

Oh, that might mean get a mat and stretch, too. They cost 10 bucks at Marshalls, but have squirrely designs on them. People will make fun of you, but let them.

F.D. and I have 2 -19 inch screen televisions (neither in the bedroom) and 2 really archaic used pieces of exercise equipment- a stationary bike that's not very comfortable and a tread-mill that's too loud and almost killed my mother so she gave it to me (what's that say?)

So you you can stop romanticizing me by picturing me on a state of the art elliptical machine in front of a wide-screen digital tv, or whatever that is.

Is a serious elliptical machine proportional to an embarrassing (but amazing) 50-inch plasma screen?

Just, you know, hypothetically, of course.

TherapyDoc said...

Yes, but you might want to ask, before you buy a serious machine, Is this machine going to lighten up?

I mean, if you're going to invest in one, maybe a happier machine would be a better idea. Or at least one willing to try to change.
