Literally, I'm so lazy I can't even think about going to the gym.
We feel you.
It’s not that you don’t see the benefits of going to the gym, because you do. Being active, exercising your muscles, getting into shape, being healthy and all that jazz.
In theory, it sounds great. Working out wakes you up, it makes you happy, and everyone could do with a little more happiness and a little more energy, right?
Except you lack the specific kind of motivation to do more work than you honestly have to.
You exercise by walking up and down the stairs from your bedroom to your kitchen.
You exercise by running through subway platforms to make sure you don’t miss your train.
And, hey, at least you don’t sit down once you’re in the train car (mostly because there are no more seats left)
It’s always something that you think about doing but never really convince yourself to leave your room for, and that’s normal, because that’s what EVERYONE does; either you’re a gym rat or you don’t even know where the gym is.
You’re not ashamed of it, either. If you really felt like you needed to go work out that badly, you’re certain you could probably make yourself do it.
You wouldn’t enjoy it, but you’d do it.
But you’re relatively healthy and you’re not overweight.
Sure, you’re a little pudgy around the middle and walking up six flights of stairs isn’t exactly your preferred activity; sure, you eat way too many bags of potato chips and your go-to dinner is macaroni and cheese but, well…
You’re pretty much happy just the way you are.
For the most part.
So maybe you wish your stomach was a little flatter and your thighs jiggled a little less but, at the end of the day, you’re just too goddamn lazy to give a shit.
Every once in a while, you’ll roll out of bed and throw on a sports bra and look for an elliptical, but that’s about as active as you get when it comes to working out.
Most of the time, you just tell yourself that the fact that you walk to work every day is enough.
It’s just a fact of life. You don’t really care that much to motivate yourself into action.
To the girl who’s too lazy to work out –
We salute you.
You are an unsung hero among women.
