I tried Hulu this week as a trial run for canceling my expensive cable TV. I didn’t think it would hurt…not physically anyway.
Due to the dwindling daylight hours, I’ve been forced to exercise indoors. I lift a few weights and run on my treadmill while watching TV. The TV in our spare bedroom doesn’t have a cable hook up, just an old DVD player. Since we went on our debt diet, we haven’t bought DVD’s in a very long time. How long? I bounce back and forth between watching John Tucker Must Die and There’s Something About Mary. As enthralling as our movie selection is (ha ha), I force myself to work out for at least 45 minutes a day.
Our computer is also in the spare bedroom so I decided to watch Hulu instead – and don’t ask why I never thought of this before. I told you, I’m a tech idiot.
I turned on a decently recent movie and ran…and ran…and ran.
The credits rolled and I glanced down at the treadmill timer.
I was on the treadmill for two hours. Sure, there are people who work out that much in one stretch… they’re called ATHLETES. I am not one.
No, Hulu didn’t really give me a stress fracture. Actually, I can’t say for sure. I don’t know what happened. All I know is, my feet don’t work today. Maybe they’ll work tomorrow. I really want to watch the new season of The Office.
Hulu (and my feet) presented a pretty strong case. Watch out expensive cable company, when the roommates are gone… you’re going with them.
