FitSugar Reader Explains Why She Is Quitting TV

Killing My TV

The Give It Up community challenge may be officially over, but it's making a lasting impact for some FitSugar readers; sagebliss is giving up TV for the long haul!

I saw the Give it Up Challenge when it was first posted on FitSugar, but at the time I didn't feel inspired to give up anything in particular. But within the last few days my husband and I have decided to give up television. More accurately, we decided to cancel our cable service, and we even returned my beloved DVR to our service provider. It was my husband who first proposed the idea, and I have to admit that when he suggested it, I looked at him as if he were crazy. After all, the new fall season is just now starting! But, the more I thought about life with no television, the more it appealed to me.


Life without television means that I have more time for the things that are important to me — family, friends, a healthy lifestyle, reading, writing, and learning. Now that I have embraced the idea, I'm actually feeling excited about it.
