So as we’re having a few laughs at Open Gym tonight, it became abundantly clear that there are more than a few of us that have something in common…
Past Chubb, more specifically.
It started with a Courtney throwback picture to a time where she wasn’t thrilled with her fitness. Then I shared mine…as did Galla…and Brendan…Lynn…..
And it hit us (specifically Courtney, who gets huge props for the idea).
We should make a calendar. A CFK calendar. And not just any calendar.
A Fat Calendar.
With old pictures of us. In our hefty, corn-fed, husky-pants-wearing glory.
Not a very PC idea, I understand. And we COULD call it something like a “Transformation Calendar”. But we’re not PC and that’s not fun. We all have enough of a sense of humor about ourselves to call it what it is.
It’s a Fat Calendar.
So what does this mean? Well…there’s a good chance that many of us used to be less “fit” than we are presently (PC!). And we’re all on separate paths, and at different stages of where we want to be. Yes.
BUT….some of us have some solid old pictures of ourselves that don’t quite look like the Today Us.
If you’re like me, for example, you possibly used to drink a fair amount of Bud Light. Maybe you ate cheese when you were bored. Perhaps you made sweet, sweet love to a steak bomb from Guido’s 3-4 nights per week in your mid-20’s.
So if there is an old picture of Fat You that looks a little different than you look right now, let’s celebrate that transformation! We’d love to have you in the calendar. You’re in. Just send me the pic, along with one of you now, and we’ll get to work on this thing.
What if you’re petite or slim…and you’ve always been petite or slim? Then this event isn’t for you. And that’s totally fine! Start inhaling some Munchos, Funions and Guinness right now, beef-up, and we’ll catch you on next year’s calendar (don’t worry, Erin will help you get it back off wicked quick).
That’s it. Grab the perfect old inflated photo of yourself and send it over.
Let’s do this…
