Monday Motivation: Fat America
Look at that.
If that doesn't make you want to eat a effing salad and go for a jog, then I don't know what to say. Actually, I do:
This isn't just an "America" thing either, the whole "first world" is turning into amorphous sacks of lard. It'd be easy to blame it on diet, but we're also significantly more sedentary than we were 30 years ago.
That's where the "Motivation" comes in. If you do have a job where you're sitting on your ass for the better portion of the day, get up every hour, on the hour, and move If you've got stairs, walk up and down them quickly. Walk around the building, or something.
If you're at home, do pushups during commercial breaks. Stay on your feet while playing video games instead of sitting down. Make sure you do at least one "outdoor" activity on the weekend, even if the weather is shitty (HTFU).
It goes without saying for a lot of us here, but too many kids these days aren't being prepared for a life of activity by their parents; they're being prepared for a life of inactivity; because Xboxes and MTV make for cheap babysitters for parents who'd rather do their own thing than enable their children's success. I see this first-hand, as someone who gets recruits ready to attend Army Basic Combat Training; and these are kids that already pass the minimum requirements for weight.
In short, stay off your ass; asses are for kicking.
