Well, I made it most of the week without any TV. I was pretty good about not wasting time watching online videos or movies. My only downfall really, was when Kate and I watch the Walking Dead on Sunday night. I figure it was OK since it was a few hours from the end of the week anyway. Now the interesting thing about this experiment is that after about 2 days of not watching TV I started having vivid crazy dreams. One was about being chased around my university campus by giant spiders and then trying to kill them by throwing bricks at them from the top of the Johnson Center (the main student center at GMU).
Also, I think I slept a little bit better mostly because I would end up going to be earlier instead of staying up to watch an episode of John Stewart or something. All-in-all, I think this was a great experiment and Kate and I are going to try and incorporate less TV watching into our weekly routine. In fact, we are going to try and save all the episodes we would normally watch during the week for the weekend.
One more thing I have discovered through this process. I do not have the willpower to tackle a new lifestyle each week. I need a break between the weeks to rethink what I am doing an prepare. So, I am going to amend my initial plan and give myself a free week between each experiment week.
