tv time

the other day i read an article in basic sciences about a study that found a correlation between tv watching and reduced muscular fitness. they found that watching 2 or more hours of tv a day will decrease your muscular fitness, regardless of your physical activity.
this study supports what the american academy of pediatrics has been saying for a long time - time spent infront of the tv should be limited to less than two hours a day.
so that is my goal for this week. it might be kind of hard - i live alone and like to have the tv on for some background noise. i am going to listen to my ipod more, and watch the tv less. i will let you know how it goes

how much tv are you watching?
