11 Reasons It’s Definitely, Definitely Alright To Skip The Gym This Evening

Fuck off, cross-trainer




Literally. Can't. Even.

Here are 11 reasons why it's absolutely 100% okay to skip the gym this evening.

1. It's. So. Cold. 

You don't want to lose your natural insulation, do you?


2. Because there's important stuff on telly

And Netflix. Loads of important stuff.


3. You had a salad for lunch

Okay it was a side salad with a massive, MASSIVE sandwich. But look.

Eating clean is half the battle.


4. You've had your Green Tea today

Green Tea is known for its health benefits, and contains shitloads of antioxidants, which – wait for it – burn fat.

5. Because social well-being is as important as physical well-being

Let your body rest and your mind party. Go get that pint.


6. Some model posted an 'inspirational' fat-shaming post

And you're NOT giving in to The Man.


7. Rest days are good for you

You wouldn't want to push yourself too hard, now, would you?


8. It's getting colder, somehow

And without even thinking about how cold the kettlebells in the gym would be, scientists have proven that cold weather helps to burn fat, thus proving you've already practically done a workout today!

Good for you.


9. Your ex and their significant other were definitely there tonight

You dodged that bullet.


10. You clicked on that article online showing yer one’s body without photoshop

No false ideals to pursue in vain.



11. If you bail on a rest day, you run a greater risk of injury

You wouldn't want to hurt yourself would you? In fact, you're playing it so safe that this is now your sixth rest day in a row.

Truly, your body is a temple.
