I was looking through the latest posts published and it stroke me that a lot of them were promoting healthy lifestyle, being fit and dieting. I realized that it was high time to schedule my visit to the gym. It would be a shame to publish another picture of myself being so unfit and having just finished another portion of ice-cream.
Later that day I went down to my building’s gym. When I opened the door a strong smell of sweat hit me right in the well-hidden abdominal muscle. I would prefer a nice fishy smell to this one, but probably the smell was one of the perks of being fit.
What would other polar bears find attractive? Definitely some good muscle lines. I observed a row of weight lifting men with a skeptical look. They were making weird noises and their facial expressions impressed me deeply.
Females must find it attractive if they are trying so hard, Medvedik thought.
I grabbed the smallest dumbbells I could find and began working on the muscles. Since even the smallest weights were too heavy for me, I ended up rolling the dumbbells around the gym floor.
After 15 minutes of this intense workout, I was all sweaty and weak. High time to work on the other group of muscles, I thought, collapsing on the mat. Tried to do some awkward lifts, but my arms gave up pretty fast. Ended up just lying there, observing the stars flying around the ceiling.
Life in the city is pretty harsh on the polar bears who want to stay fit. It is so much easier in the Arctic due to the cold temperatures and lack of food. But somehow I don’t feel like coming back to the snowy territories ever again.
As summer time approaching, everybody is rushing to the gym to get rid of the winter belly and rolls of fat on the sides. Medvedik’s been a little bit lazy these days too, just luxuriating on the couch and day dreaming.
But one day he climbed on the scales and his eyes widened with wonder. How did he manage to put on so much weight? It’s been a long winter, but now it’s time to shake yourself and go for a healthier lifestyle, he thought.
Next day early in the morning, he went for a run around the block. After five minutes of jogging, Medvedik found himself out of breath and out of motivation to continue. “There must be an easy way to lose these kilos!”, Medvedik thought. “I just need to do a research on the Internet…” he decided.
After a couple of hours of Internet researching, he understood that there is no other way than diet and sports. Well, there is also liposuction but it’s painful and expensive.
Medvedik decided to go for a long stroll instead of running since it was not as easy and pleasant as he thought it would. Fifteen minutes later he realized that it’s high time to eat something HEALTHY. He went to the closest restaurant and ordered a chef salad (since chef salad can’t be bad).
The salad was good and filling. Surprisingly, Medvedik felt so snoozy after eating a big salad. He figured out it is a good sign and he must have worked out really well. He obviously deserved a good afternoon snooze after burning so much fat.
He trudged home and felt asleep happy, placing his big beary paws on his big round belly.
