Who needs commercials?


If you watch TV this evening, make a point to get up and walk during commercials. These commercial “breaks” are an easy way to increase your step count for the day and keep your body moving.

Alternative Challenge: Walk around while you talk on the phone today!

    So I don't watch tv. And in hardly ever on the phone talking. I guess I'll continue to focus on walking every hour.

    I am already a confirmed pacer when I'm on the phone, so that wouldn't be a change for me. But I will be more mindful of getting up and moving during EVERY commercial break, not only when I feel like it.

    No commercial breaks for me since I don't watch commercial TV, so I'll be walking and talking today.

    I will walk while on the phone... just started talking to someone new that I like a lot, so we've had a lot of long phone conversations... just more mileage for me now :D

    This one will be a bit difficult as I'm one of those that doesn't watch much TV.... but if I turn it on, I'll make a point of walking in place!

    Terrific job, everyone! I'm not much of a TV watcher either, but I have a soft spot for Chopped. So when I watch, it's up and about at commercial time.

    As you can see, not every daily challenge will work for everyone. But with a main challenge, an alternative challenge, your "one thing" and always the possibility of going for a walk, you shouldn't have any trouble finding ways to move!

    My husband always paces around while he's on the phone, and it's always driven me nuts that he does that! But I suppose I'll have to forgive him because he's actually doing a Good Thing after all... ;)
