Fit Tip: Get Rid of the Remote

Somehow I feel like you guys are not going to love this tip, but I am going to throw it out there anyway.

Don't use your remote control [gasp]. That's right, get up and manually change the channels on your TV. Chances are you are going to get so annoyed that you'll just walk over to it and turn it off altogether and do something else, like say, go for a walk (ah, now you see my ulterior motive). However, if you're determined to watch TV, even if that means getting up each time you want to change the channel, change the volume, etc., then at least you'll be doing a little something more than just sitting there on the couch. Plus, you can burn about three times more calories than if you were using the remote.
