My wife and I have been exercising together for over a year now. Its a very intense Bootcamp style work out with a group and a trainer that yells at us. (Okay, he doesn’t really yell, thank goodness.) I hate it. I can’t deny, though, that I need it. It helps me feel okay with eating a lot on the days I work out. Twice as much, “Because I worked out today.” Jen and I are competitive with each other about it too. In a friendly way, usually. Even though it is Melody preaching in this strip, its really MY voice coming out of her. I have given Jen the same lecture of why don’t we just “give up” and enjoy our lives- and food. But, I have to admit, I like her looking hot. She has mentioned a few times she likes it when I don’t have my tummy buddy too. So, here we are.
My only other note on this strip is that I was going to have Mark saying this (because of the above reasons) but it sounded extra mean for that punchline to come out of his mouth. I think us men expect that our wives wouldn’t mind us looking a bit better. If we think that of them, you better keep that to YOURSELF buddy! Nuff’ said!
