Since my last post I've chatted up 2 more local moms who are into running and fitness. (Always keeping my game skills sharp) I was able to sneak in the question "Is your husband as fitness obsessed as you?" The answers came back that he certainly is not, that he's more like the opposite of her... eating junk food and watching TV when he's not at work. Dough boys.
So why is this? Two reasons I guess...
One, this society always places a lot of emphasis on a woman's looks. Some women still understand this even into middle age. They know that clothes and makeup aren't enough, you gotta keep that body sharp.
Two, lets face it... married men are expected to be providers and NOTHING fucking else. Spend time lifting when you could be advancing your career/income? WTF? Does your wife care if your delts are popping? Maybe a little, but not as much as being able to shop whenever she wants. Do your kids care if your quads are large? No, they just wnat the latest iPhone and shit. Do your inlaws care if your abs are chisled? No, they just want their princess to be kept in a nice cushy home. Might as well be an ATM. I don't care. I just keep finding the time to keep lifting.
Anyone have any thoughts on all of this?
