How I learned to stop worrying and love the exercise.


This weekend we popped out and got me a set of wireless headphones for using while on the treadmill. The closed captioning on our tv is being silly so instead of cranking up the volume (which I hate to do) to hear it over the treadmill, I can now hear it beautifully. The headphones even block out the noise of the treadmill itself. They aren’t even expensive awesome ones either. We picked them up from xs cargo for 9.99. Sure they aren’t perfect but they do the job! Today was the first day of using them and they did a great job! It helps pass the time while I’m running my wheel. Which makes it all the less painful and really something to look forward to. Just keep it in mind that you finally get a bit of undisturbed tv time when you make it workout time in front of the tv.

So, now that I have all this tv time I’ve been using it while I exercise to catch up on those series that I missed. I’m horrible about catching weekly tv shows.  The only ones I’ve been able to catch regularly this season have been Lost and Flashforward…only after we used exercise time and cuddle time to help us catch up on those past seasons. Oh yeah we need tivo or a pvr in a bad bad way. Just can’t justify that tivo monthly fee though. Not after we already pay so much for cable…to then pay something to record cable for me just seems silly. Maybe one day I will come around.

Today during my workout I finished watching Jericho. What a crime that show was cancelled mid 2nd season. I was really enjoying it and I’m sad I don’t get to watch some more. Then again I’m always a sucker for a good apocalypse or post apocalypse. It actually would have been interesting to see how that civil war would have played out. *sigh* Now I need to find more tv to work out to and sadly Jericho has left me with a want for more apocalypse tv. Dangit. Well there’s a bunch of Glee I haven’t seen. Maybe that can help? There’s an apocalypse in there somewhere right? Please?

Shows I have enjoyed working out to so far:

  • Lost
  • Flashforward
  • Jericho
  • Secret Diary of a Call Girl (I love Billie Piper dammnit!)
  • The Prisoner (The old one, the new one just didn’t grab me and make me raise an eyebrow in a naughty way)
  • Dollhouse
  • The umpteenth rewatching of Firefly (have I mentioned one of my dogs is named Kaylee? Shiny)
  • True Blood (Gearing up for the next season in June…have I mentioned my other dog is named Godric? Yeeeaaah. Have I not mentioned we are geeks here?)

and ofcourse countless movies. Love my movies. I think the one that amused me the most while I was working out was Zack and Miri make a Porno. Then again I just love Kevin Smith.

So yes, stop worrying about it. Grab a series on dvd or *cough* otherwise pilfered. Get yourself caught up in wanting to catch the next episode…the next time you exercise. Make the exercise itself a reward. Seems to be working pretty good over here!
