Well, here I am after day 1 of my TV diet… and I don’t feel so bad. Actually, I was more productive than I’ve been in weeks.
I was finished my daily quota of 5 articles by noon and had written a bunch of blog posts for Hummingbird604 and a job cover letter by 2PM. Then, I spent some time reading my RSS feeds and selecting interesting posts for my Sunday Roundup. This lasted until 3PM. And then, I sat down in my chair and finished this book.
I’d forgotten how much I love reading.
Today I kept to my objective–1 TV episode. I watched last night’s Big Brother. I feel so horrible for Jordan… I’ve never seen her so angry before, and she has a right to be. Hopefully Rachel can get her stuff together and win a damn competition.
Well, in any case I’m not here to review Big Brother, so let’s go back to my topic–the TV diet.
I find it extremely hard as I’ve started a food diet at the same time and TV is a good way to help me forget about how much I’m craving carbs right now. And yet I soldier on.
For example, instead of watching TV right now I’m writing this post and making business contacts. And tomorrow, instead of watching TV, I will write my article quota, more blog posts for HB604 and this blog, and read some more.
How did I come to lose interest in books and reading so quickly? Television is an easy way to relax and get taken away in a story, but I never thought about giving up a good book for some television. I wonder what happened…
Food for further thought as the week goes.
