Ten Miles With The Biggest Loser

I have a sort of embarrassing confession to make. It has two parts:

Confession Part One: I’m totally sucked in to The Biggest Loser. One night, when I was having trouble sleeping, I watched an episode of The Biggest Loser on Hulu. I know reality TV is pretty much horrible, but I got sucked in. Now I watch The Biggest Loser every week.

Confession Part Two: Today The Biggest Loser actually inspired me to exercise. Because of the snow and my headache, I haven’t been able to come up with the energy to get myself back to the pool. But today, while I was watching The Biggest Loser, I couldn’t help thinking: you know, if someone who is over 200 pounds can run a half marathon and tow a car half a mile, then me and my creaky joints and my headache can certainly ride an exercise bike for a little bit.

So, while I was watching TV, my headache and I rode the stationary bike for 45 minutes. Although I took breaks and only rode for 15 minutes at a time, I still rode about 10 miles total while I watched The Biggest Loser. And that is certainly better than doing nothing at all!

I'm certainly impressed! That's far more exercise than I got today...

When you tow a car half a mile, please let me know. I so want to be there. With popcorn.

Hulu is the BEST. You can subscribe to shows you want to watch and it will email you when the newest episode is posted. Sucks you in!! ~;o)

Is that too obscure a Beatles reference?
