No, this isn’t about weight. This is about fitness. I have always been a fit person, even though I have some junk in the trunk and fattic in the attic. You know those erection enhancer commercials that always warn “Make sure with your doctor that you are healthy enough for sex”? What is that about? Well, sex in itself is a workout! Sometimes, it can be a marathon. Or a triathlon, or heck, it can be the Olympics!
Now studies have shown that sex can burn calories, reduce stress, and help with muscle and joint pain. I also feel that there is a key componant to sex: you should work out once a week. Why once a week? Well, if you don’t feel you need to lose weight, commiting to a once a week thing should be a piece of cake. Just do it for thirty minutes. I know what you’re saying, “Dani, why are you telling me to work out? Do you want me to stop reading the blog post right now and work out?” Don’t feel I am lecturing you, hear me out. I think a small workout can improve your outlook on yourself. Many people complain of poor body image, but let me tell you, after a few bicep curls with my weights, I think I look damn fucking sexy. You will too! Here’s what I do:
Get a Wii Fit, now. It’s one of the most high-tech, interactive and FUN (yes, caps needed) piece of workout material I have ever worked with. I have DVDs upon DVDs of various workouts ranging from aerobics, bellydancing, yoga, kickboxing, and budokon and martial arts. None compare to the Wii Fit. What makes the Wii Fit better? It tracks your weight, progress, and workouts for you, teaches you about your body, and even gives you an incentive to work out. You have to earn more credits (minutes) of working out to get all the material. You have a starter of five exercises per genre of workouts. You can choose from yoga, aerobics, strength training, and balance games.
Do enough exercise to earn 30 minutes (credits) and you’ll probably unlock a lot of stuff already for your next week workout! After you worked up a sweat (and you will, don’t let an innocent Nintendo fool you!), go take a cold rinse through your hair and look at yourself in the mirror. Don’t you feel sexy and happy? Maybe a little tired, sure, but damn, you’re glowing! You’re feeling better about yourself, accomplished, and like you’re on top of the world. According to the Mayo Clinic, exercise can increase oxygen in tissue and skin (that’s where that glow comes from!), relieve pain, and the endorphins sent out can relieve stress, anxiety, and depression. When you’re happy, you’ll want to have sex! No one wants to have sex when they’re depressed.
