This is an unused YouTube video script. It would have been a part of my vlog series. I hope it can help someone out there, or at least be entertaining.
When I was a young lad I was very much in shape.
Not like, buff, six pack, bench my girlfriend in shape
normal, I don’t pant like a dog on a hot summer day just from walking up the stairs in shape
And as I got older I began to realize that you, like, have to actually work at staying in shape.
like, what the crap is this?!
I never thought you actually have to work at staying in shape
As a kid I was always in shape, and we ate junk food.
But you know what else we did?
We rode our bikes around town
we played outside all day
we played all the sports
we climbed trees
we skinned our knees
we went on camping trips
hiked through the woods
walked uphill both ways in the snow
and very rarely played a nintendo
that wasour parent’s name for literally every video game back then)
But at some point my fast food to exercise ratio tanked
or however ratios work
It took me a few years to figure out, but I soon realized
you can’t eat a ton of junk, sit around the house, and expect to stay fit.
I know most people right about now are saying
But, um, I was too.
I knew you can’t live a sedentary life style and eat fast food twice a day and expect to stay in shape.
That’s why I eat an apple every now and then.
But I never understood how much exercise kids actually get, that they know absolutely nothing about.
Swinging on a swingset really works the abs.
Running while playing tag, soccer, or just chase me is all cardio.
Climbing trees is sort of like a combination pull up and leg press.
Monkey bars or jungle gyms or climby poles are all about arm strength.
Just about every playground, at least back in the day, was essentially a kindergarten version of a 24 Hour Fitness.
But sometime in college I replaced my childhood workout routine with… uh… no routine.
Andwhen I once would go days without moving just to jump back into a soccer game
I will now go minutes without moving to find that I have a cramp and pulled a muscle
Real talk: I once sprained my shoulder putting on a jacket. Not a heavy winter coat. A measly little jacket.
Up until now I’ve been treating my taste buds well
(and my stomach agrees most of the time)
But now, I think it’s time I begin treating my body well.
Now drop and give me 20
yes sir *disappear off screen*
*reaching up from off screen to grab chip bag*
help, I’m a weakling and I can’t… reach… my snacks…
P.S. – Thanks for reading.
