You may have had too much pumpkin pie and apple pie. You probably ingested copious amounts of wine and/or beer (like me). Hell, you probably ate your weight in turkey and gravy so naturally you’re feeling like this (like I am):
We are too… To make matters worse, some enterprising soul managed to make all those jaw-dropping scenes featuring our favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) heroes in various states of undress reminding us that their bodies are always on fleek, and there isn’t a protein shake that they won’t drink. So before you think about cowering in your corner and throwing in the towel until January, these GIFs should help you get focused.
Look, if Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) can get his ripped on, then you can too…
I mean, really. Did we even care that Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan in Winter Soldier) was being tortured when he was doing the most while Hydra was treating him like a guinea pig? Nah… And your girl (or your man) didn’t either.
And if you ever need to take off your shirt before you whoop some ass, you want to look as badass as Star Lord (Chris Pratt) in Guardians of the Galaxy:
Sure, those pants might be a little tight now after eating all of your Aunt’s famous mac and cheese or green bean casserole. Don’t lose faith! You (and me) could be putting on those pants like Thor (Chris Hemsworth) did with some hard work.
All we’ve gotta do is jump up off that accursed couch and get going. Seriously, Iron Man aka Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) was doing movies when I was a toddler and he looks like this? Let’s get in gear!
Sure, it will probably hurt like the dickens and there are other things you could be doing, but hard work and perseverance pays off. Just ask Captain America (Chris Evans).
You’ve got to hand it to Marvel, they sure know how to play up to the female gaze. Thank you from the bottom of my prurient heart.
