cherenkov December 23, 2019 Share December 23, 2019 That whole breakfast scene with Sasha, Emily and the overweight sister was hilarious to me. The bowl of cereal seemed like a set up but I got the impression that the sister was dead serious about thinking it was not possible to go to the gym and go sightseeing in the same day. Sharp/TLC definitely baited that hook, but she hit on it like a starving catfish. This is not a woman who understands anyone who's into fitness. Sasha is an ass, Emily is delusional, but I can completely relate to the interest in eating healthy and going to the gym. Yes, the morning after flying in from Russia. The sooner you get back to your routine as an athletic person the better you feel. It's not punishment, going to the gym. It's how you sort out your jet lag and you recuperate from spending an entire day plus not moving around much and cramped into tiny seats. Also while I do think Sasha can be taken badly for encouraging Emily to lose the pregnancy weight - and start quickly - it could also be that he's getting the dickhead-edit. Relationships where both people are athletes or seriously into fitness involve conversations like that. Conversations that can look really mean to outsiders are often us being supportive and encouraging of our partner's goals. I got lazy over the fall and packed a few pounds on, and if someone overheard me talking about it with my man they'd probably hear him say "Yeah you can definitely drop 15-20 pounds. Let's focus on nutrition and get into the gym." and think he's being a colossal dick, but the reality is that is my goal because I know what my best weight is for my sports and how I prefer to look. I think the sister's off-base and projecting. Emily was already working out and clearly serious about it when she met Sasha. The sister's being a bucket crab. 5 Link to comment
