This week is done and I am very happy that we are finished with this task. The television can be turned back on. I completely understand why Ashley assigned us this green challenge, but I am happy to have it back. We have saved some energy this week, Ashley and I spent more time together and I also learned just how dependent we are on our digital devices. A long term change did come out of this and we decided that Wednesday is not No Electronics Wednesday. No television or computer on Wednesday evenings.
I think this will be fairly easy for us to stick with. Since we have DVR and we also go to the gym on Wednesdays, I think it will be a good day to go without our electronics. Hopefully, this will be better training for when we have children. When we have talked about kids in the past, we both have agreed that we would want to change our television habits to better emulate healthy lifestyle. Now, we just need to follow through.
In the meantime, I am going to watch the season premier of Chuck tonight one day late. My 56 inches of entertainment has come back into our lives, but hopefully with slightly better habits and more control. Let me know your television (or lack of TV) story in the comments area below.
