Breaking up with Netflix

Welcome to Small Steps to Health where we do not take orders from a cookie!

Dearest Netflix,

I am writing to let you know that I am breaking up with you at the end of the month.  No – it is not you, it is me.  Initially I thought our relationship will be compatible with my goal of a healthy lifestyle.  The thought of having access to hundreds of exercise dvds lured me in, but your constant recommendations to try this movie or that show has sour this budding romance.

Instead of sweating to the oldies, I find myself obsessing over The Tudors and Robin Hood.  Every day I have an excuse for logging on and watch mindless episodes of TV shows that I would never known about if not for your recommendations.  I trusted you!  But you are not to blame for this.  You are only doing your job.

I blame myself and my weakness for relaxing over TV shows.  I know I should be exercising, blogging, or reading.  And yet, I just want to spend time with you.  This is an unhealthy relationship.  I will not allow it to continue any longer.  I am sorry, but I am sending you packing at the end of the month.  Don””t call me.  I will call you.  I love you, but I don””t have room in my life for you.



Until next time and thanks for stopping by.
