It is officially true that I am a bum when it comes to the gym. I had a really great two months of going, and then once finals came around I took a week off, that week turned into two and I am currently on my third week off from the gym…
When I made this observation to the Mister, he stated that I’m just doing my part in paying the Fat Tax. The Mister went on to explain what he meant by the Fat Tax after he so my completely confused face.
The Fat Tax is the money you shell out every month for a gym membership that you never use. In short, when you are paying $40.00 a month and skipping the gym altogether you are paying your Fat Tax.
I thought that was cleaver, but it also made me really think of the fact that I am wasting $40.00 a month if I don’t go to the gym, and while we have pretty much a full gym set up in our basement it is just not the same.
Hence, I am going back to the gym tonight. Reluctantly, and a little sad that I have to get off my comfy recliner and drive in the 40 degree weather to the gym, then get out of the car and actually walk into the gym, but I am not going to waste my Fat Tax anymore! $40.00 could get me a new pair of shoes, but I’ll settle for a less jiggly booty.
Are you paying a Fat Tax?
