Despite the fact that we are a couple of girls who feel that a good muffin top truly accentuates an outfit (or at least Ashley does…somewhere Lisa is like “Don’t be putting we in that sentence!”), we have a lot of fitness bloggers who follow us.
We are always so inspired when we go to their blogs and read all about the latest training they are doing and how they have gone 57,000 days without sugar. I always find myself being like, “That is so amazing, because I have totally just gone 57 minutes without sugar. We have so much in common”.
Or how they are just coming back from running a marathon for fun, and I nod along as I think about how I just
walked really really slowly dashed up the stairs to set the dryer on another “fluff” cycle. Kindred spirits, I tell you. We spend all our very important blog meetings talking about how much we want to be just like them!
So, while today’s question is for everyone, it holds a special place in my heart for our fitness friends! Because, I know, I KNOW, that they are all currently rocking in the corner even thinking about it (or digging through their couch cushions looking for $5,000).
We all know how easy it is to pack on a few extra pounds. How quickly you go from comfy jeans to roomy sweats.
Usually, though, you reign it in before things get too out of hand. And in the case of our fitness friends, that probably means the nanosecond the scale goes up by 0.0002 pounds! 😉
However, what if it happened in an instant? Boom. Your current weight plus 50 pounds. Let’s be honest here, y’all. Even the biggest pair of elastic waist pants you own is going to be a problem with the addition of 50 extra pounds. So, you are definitely looking at having to shop for new clothes until you can shed the weight. And yes, you can shed the weight, by the way. But not instantly. The old-fashioned way. Diet and exercise. And time. Or so we hear!
You can pay $5,000 and have your hypothetical self stay just like you are. No need to hit the gym…unless you want to. No shopping for a new wardrobe necessary, which is probably good since you are now out $5,000 smackaroos!
So, which is it Dose Peeps? Gain 50 pounds or pay $5,000? Don’t forget the rules, y’all. Pick a side. Either side. I am not choosy, but please just pick one.
