If being forced into a bathing suit over Memorial Day Weekend doesn’t scream “summer is here” then what does. I spent most winter eating Trader Joe’s Dunkers and not working out. If you recall, I made it my New Year’s Resolution to work out once a week. I’ve average about once every two months. While contemplating going to yoga or ordering a salad is tempting, it’s much easier to watch Ja’mie Private School Girl re-runs and eat Pad Thai. It’s nicer to obsess over how hot your bod could look, and then just leave it as a thought. So since it’s summer and everyone is obsessed with looking good, here are 5 ways to avoid working out.
2. Enter a Beyonce Free zone. Unfollow her on Instagram (I couldn’t) or avoid going on the internet. If you can avoid Beyonce, you can avoid the self-loathing thought that creeps into your head when you hear “you have as many hours in the day as Beyonce”. We all have the potential to work out, dress up and be just as fierce as Beyonce, but let’s just let Beyonce do Beyonce. Plus, we all know Beyonce comes from an alternate universe where there are 100 hours in a day.
3. Eat your emotions. Put on some Taylor Swift and rehash that high school break-up. Watch Eat, Prey, Love, her pizza experience will inspire you to find some Domino’s. Go on Pinterest and see what salad/ cronuts your friends are pinning and then go eat a cupcake. Just eat.
4. Check out your Netflix Insta-que. If you haven’t started Mad Men, House of Cards or Breaking Bad, then you really need to re-evaluate your life. Throw on your favorite LuLu’s and a t-shirt and climb into bed. 8 hours later, you won’t regret skipping that workout, but you will face a lot of inner conflict smoking a cigarette.
5. Drink! It’s 5 o’clock somewhere and what doesn’t take the edge off the stress of not working out like drinking.
