As the Dollhouse Turns: Maria Kang-troversy

As the Dollhouse Turns responds to Maria Kang by Robyn Welling @RobynHTV


Sunny, in general, is relatively content with her level of fitness. She's no Barbie, but then again, who is? Well, besides Barbie. Sure, if Sunny was trying to make a career out of photographing her abs, she'd have the time and motivation to keep it up. But as it stands, she's content to trade in cropped bra-shirts and chiseled thighs for her pink cardigan and chocolate pies.

Yet, as Sunny does her favorite workout (surfing) (okay, surfing the web), she sees something that almost makes her drop her energy drink (coffee).

Maria Kang is back.

At first, Sunny's annoyed. "What's your excuse," she sneers at the computer screen. "Oh, I don't know, Maria. Maybe my excuse is that I'M not made out of PLASTIC."

Oh, wait.

Sunny looks down at her lap, which is spreading out in her computer chair enough to accommodate all three of her children. She suddenly notices that the waistband of her pants has started disappearing under her muffin top. She decides that maybe, instead of being offended by Maria Kang, she'll switch teams in the Internet debate and get inspired to improve herself. No more excuses!

First, she tries some simple stretches.

Then she tries exercising at home.

Dinnertime is no help.

Maybe getting out of the house to work out would be easier.

Then she has an entire week of... decreased motivation.

Okay, seriously - let's try going to the gym.

All this effort starts to be a little too much for Sunny to handle.

"Oh yeah," Sunny remembers. "I forgot - I used to be just fine with how I was. I don't need to make an excuse about it, any more than I need the Internet to tell me how I'm supposed to look."

But Sunny doesn't give up fitness completely - she just limits it to activities she truly enjoys. Like certain upper body workouts.
