Hipster's Guide to Indifferent Exercise, Sweet Nothings

Coffee In Motion

In reality this girl is running a marathon, but see how motionless the coffe cup makes her look?

Indifferent exercise tip of the week: Carry a paper cup of coffee on your power walk, and you will look infinitely less active. In fact, studies show that people in tight jeans holding a big paper cup give off the appearance of standing completely still.** Not still enough to actually be made of marble, though, so you won’t look like you’re trying to win a contest for who can freeze the most like an Italian statue. After all, the life of a hipster is not as full of lame, faux artistry as the challenges of America’s Next Top Model. On the contrary, the life and exercise of a hipster is poetry in motion. When done properly all the motion is secret, of course, and this makes you a caffeinated, calorie-burning, ninja poet.

**Who does these studies? I don’t know, and I don’t care.  Studies are lame. Do you think studies and exercising are lame? Leave a comment.

    haha! jennifer, i just love these hipster posts that you do! a caffeinated induced beverage really DOES make one look indifferent to exercise i think. that and a pair of non-running shoes along with a tight pair of skinnies really does the trick {like you’d mentioned before} ~ i will remember this the next time i want to look too cool for exercise haha!! 😉 😉

      Indeed, caffeine and Converse really are a sure-fire way to disguise all signs of working out, Kristina. 😉

      Coffee cups like this really are the favorite accessory of the Olsen twins no matter what the season. 😉 I think you’re really onto something, Letizia, and the Olsens could be role models for hipster exercisers everywhere. Have a lovely weekend, my dear!

    hahahahaha these posts are wonderful! I think skinny jeans are great, however, they are not really conducive to exercising-or looking like you’re trying to exercise.

      Thanks for the support and laughter, Erin! Skinny jeans really are the latest craze for stealth exercise. 😉
