The Adulterer’s Workout
The other day I was driving in my car listening to the radio. The deejays were talking about a study that warned if your spouse all of a sudden starts exercising and losing flab, they might be doing it because they’re cheating on you. In other words, having a new partner in their life is the only reason they’d get fit.
Whenever I hear someone say “study” it raises a few red flags. First off, we don’t know what kind of study this was, how accurate, how biased, the study design, number of people, etc.
Also, journalists always misinterpret research findings so by the time it gets watered down to the listener/reader, it might reveal totally different findings. So, I don’t know how accurate this information is to begin with.
But let’s assume, for the sake of argument, that this study is accurate, that those who are married and begin exercising are only doing so because they’re cheating on their spouses.
So adultery is the only reason a married person would begin exercising?
That’d be pretty sad. It means that people won’t exercise for their own benefit, be it health, fitness or even vanity. And they definitely couldn’t care less about their spouses so they’d never once consider getting fit for them. I know there are people with so much disdain for their mates that they wouldn’t consider doing anything nice for them. If that’s the case, why stay married?
However, I like to give people the benefit of the doubt and have a more positive outlook. While I’m sure there are some adulterers out there who are getting fit because they’re cheating on their spouses, I’m willing to bet there are people who are actually exercising for themselves and for their spouses.
Some people genuinely care about their bodies and it’s not about looking better for the “other” man or woman.
Thus, this summer give yourself (and your spouse) a surprise by getting lean and mean by going here.
All the best,
P.S. A decade ago I’d often watch the TV show “Cheaters” which followed suspected adulterers around and then confronted them. But like too much junk food, too much trash TV isn’t good for the brain and turns it to goo. A little crap is fine, but you need real substance for real health and happiness.
