Sayonara, Dish!

I woke up this morning to an email that I receive about once a month — my bill for Dish Network.  It was about $6.00 higher than it has been, so I called them to ask why.  Normally, I would access my account online and do the research myself, but I was in a hurry to get to work.

Dish Network Bill


Simply put, Dish Network raised their rates.  Simply put, I haven’t turned my TV on in 2-3 weeks.  I get more than enough screen time at work, on my phone, and at my laptop at home.  Now that I work out 6 days a week; plan for, prepare, and analyze all of my meals; and still manage to keep a reasonable social calendar, I don’t have time for television.  Ain’t nobody got time for that.

In the back of my mind, I’ve been thinking about canceling my satellite service for a while.  In maintenance class this week, we discussed how there’s a correlation between weight loss success and limited screen time.  This email was the motivation I needed to take action.

What are the things in your life that you’ve been thinking about doing?  What are the things that sound like they would make a positive impact?  What would it take for you to take action on those small things?

Do it.
