Fittingly Mad: Tivo has ruined my abs

I am a busy woman, but who isn't these days? After I've kissed the little ones goodnight, I like to settle in front of the TV and snuggle with my honey. Until a commercial break comes on, then I am up and exercising.

But not anymore. We have Tivo.

Now we just fast forward through the commercials. See, the commercials felt like free time. They were down time. They were a little piece of me time. Commercials were a chance to lie down without the kids crawling all over me and work my abs.

I know technically there are still commercials even with Tivo, but who has the willpower at the end of the day to take advantage of this down time (literally I was on the floor doing sit ups) and not just press the fast forward. Fast forwarding of course should have enabled me to have even more free time to exercise. Not so much the case--With the back log of shows to watch, all that fast forwarding really does is enable me to watch more TV.

So now I am looking for the willpower to do my sit-ups before I even turn on the TV. I am hoping to find it soon. Wish me luck.

Who would have thought a little word like TIVO would revolutionize a country? Change marriages? Networks? Advertising agencies? I find it unbelievable! Yep, I have it. Can't live without it.
