Dear Lauren Conrad…

I recently happened upon the slacker pic below of Lauren Conrad and it put the biggest smile on my lazy-piece-of-shit face.  See, celebrities really are just like us.  That is, if you consider a reality TV star a celebrity and you consider yourself well, someone who hates to work out.

Let’s analyze this pic:  she’s not sweating (just a lil’ bit of sweat and those $200 Gold Ray-Ban Aviators would slide right off her nose, duh)… she’s smiling (you can’t exert yourself physically and maintain a grin, just ask the Williams sisters, they constantly look TERRIFYING)… she’s got a drink in her hand (always a dead give-away that you’re planning on taking lots of “breaks”)… oh L.C., this is my kind of workout!

Now don’t get me wrong, I exercise  Just yesterday I went to the gym and took the most intense Hip Hop Cardio Fusion class ever.  The teacher was definitely (I think) a transsexual lady, which would be great if I was the type of gal who wanted some intense physical conditioning.  However, when you’re just there because you need to be able to tell yourself “I worked out today” so you don’t feel guilty when you scarf down a McDonald’s #2, then the last quality you look for in a Hip Hop Cardio Fusion instructor is legitimate male endurance.

She looked like a sexy lady, but she worked out like a dude — a tough dude who was doing circuits with 25 lb weights (I started with 5 pounders, quickly downgraded to 3lbs, and ended up ditching weights altogether).  She actually made an old Asian chick leave because she couldn’t do the bear crawl across the room with the rest of the class.

Thanks but no thanks, Transsexual Hip Hop Cardio Fusion Instructor!  You can keep your insane group* bear crawls, your exhausting mountain climbers and your these-were-used-as-punishment-in-my-middleschool squat thrusts.  I’ll be in Brentwood walking at a brisk pace with L.C.

* Minus one old Asian lady who, in all honestly, had no business being in this class — she had tai chi written all over her.

  1. I need desperately to get in shape. I’m approaching 40 and OUT OF SHAPE! So much so that everyday tasks are hard to do and sometimes breathtaking. I want to go to the gym, I feel better after I do, but gosh it is so hard to just GO. Any advise?

  2. Great Blog ! Regards.

  3. I was just talking with my friend about this last week over lunch . Dont know how in the world we landed on the subject really, they brought it up. I do recall eating a excellent steak salad with cranberries on it. I digress
