Let me guess, like the rat in this cartoon, you’ve repurposed any exercise equipment you’ve purchased and moved on to less strenuous pursuits – like Netflix, Gaming, and the consumption of “comfort foods.” 😉 Hell! You probably did that months ago, but I didn’t bother chiding anyone about it in early February like I normally do because adjustments in expectations had to be made due to the economic, societal, and psychological malaise brought on by the panicdemic.
I do get it. With the extended lock-downs and closures of gyms across America, combined with many people’s lingering terror of being around other people, it’s been hard to find inspiration to get and/or keep fit. It’s not like we get the positive reinforcement of seeing fine fitness babes anymore.
But, it’s not all doom and gloom. The lack of motivation to exercise combined with the dramatic increase in home culinary practices has ushered in a new era in which hard is less “in” and soft is more so than it had been previously.
