15 Times Parks And Rec Understood Non-Athletic People

Does watching ESPN count as exercise?

15 Times Parks And Rec Understood Non-Athletic People

Are you ever eating brunch at a sidewalk café and you see people jog or bike pass you? By the way, that brunch consists of a cheesy omelet, crispy bacon, fruit and pancakes with extra butter. Man, good for them because God knows I don’t do physical activity and would not choose to. Just watching or hearing a sports game or marathon telecast makes me exhausted to be honest. Heck, the most movement I make is walking to class, and even then I’m out of breath. It’s not that I don’t want to maintain a healthy weight or lower risks for many diseases, but that I simply don’t enjoy it enough to stay motivated. These are just a few moments that I can definitely relate to being a not-so-active person.

Let me know if you can relate!

1. You don't necessarily make the best food decisions.

2. Friends and family try to get you to eat something that's not just sugar and processed flavors.

3. But you still stick to your saturated trans fats.

4. Your athletic friends go on about living a healthy lifestyle and how it'll increase your lifespan blah, blah, blah.

5. That's when your loved ones guilt you into making a change.

6. At least the outfits are cute cuz I look good.

7. Forcing yourself to eat what is called a pre-workout snack.

8. First stop, cardio.

9. Second stop, strength.

10. When you see a cross-fit class going on and wonder what in God's name is happening.

11. When it's only been an hour of working out.

12. Leaving the gym knowing you won't be back, at least for a while.

13. Post-workout soreness.

14. Then your friends ask if you signed up for a gym membership.

15. "Are you at least gonna eat healthier?" #sorrynotsorry

Oh well, you tried. Maybe next week. Let’s be realistic, maybe next year.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
