Dear Nigerian Husband,
You should know this by now, i really do enjoy working out. Apart from exercise helping to sculpt the body that will carry your offspring, it also keeps me sane and prevents me from going to jail (Just kidding, You don’t have to worry about that at all- I’m from a good home and know how to handle my anger.)
So for the past two years, I’ve exercised somewhat consistently and if not for bad eating habits every now and then, I’ll be on several runways around the world making money that will help in building that big family house we are going to have.
Lately though, I’ve taken the exercise and eating a bit more seriously. I’ve eaten more fruits and vegetables, I’ve increased my reps and the duration of time I spend in the gym.
But we have a problem. There are many things I dislike and bullying is one of them. I hope you can help me address this issue I’m about to tell you.
See, for the past week or so, I noticed two girls joined the gym. These girls don’t have any respect for us who have been coming to the gym for generations. Not only do they not have respect, those girls, in my opinion, have no reason to be at the gym; they have almost ‘perfect’ bodies. To make things really bad, a few days ago, I walked into the gym and noticed two of them working out in sports bras!
My dear Nigerian Husband, I almost fainted! What bullies! What do they want the rest of us one-pack bellies to do? How are we supposed to compete for the other guys’ attention? (Whether you like it or not, a lot of us women enjoy going to the gym for the little healthy stares we get from the guys- we enjoy it only if they flirt and stare respectfully)
My dear Nigerian Husband, you can’t just stay there and let those girls do as they please at the gym i’ve visited for a while. You shouldn’t let them body-bully your future Nigerian wife in such a manner. This is unacceptable. Haba! a whole sports bra? Showcasing perfect abs and well sculpted butts? This life isn’t’ fair!
While I wait onyou to address this behavior, I’m taking things into my own hands.
As of that day, I began doing more. I’ve been eating more fruits, vegetables and little carbs. I’m giving myself three weeks to catch up with those bullies. They want to be bullies? Let them wait and see how my abs will be. I won’t even need to wear sports bra openly- I’llleave that only for your eyes. I shall work out so hard that as soon as I walk into the gym, they’ll all walk out!
I’m not mad or anything, but I have to go. I’ve not done any exercise for the day.
Yours in marriage eventually,
