Getting Back On Track

When it comes down to it a lot of what is sexy is just having energy and feeling good. If there’s anything that you can easily do to improve your energy and mood, then you may as well do it. We all can feel that attractive vibe from people that just look energetic and happy. Likewise we get repulsion from the Debbie Downers of the world.
If you’ve been following the very loose plot on the blog, I’ve had several family and work crises slamming on me over this year. Some of that has resulted in some basic self neglect in my own upkeep. Working out had kinda gone by the way side and my clothing was stalled out as well – the plan was to go down a size, but the working out had stalled, so my clothes just got older and ratty waiting for exercise to resume.
So my solution was somewhat of a transitional wardrobe upgrade as I hit the stores on Wednesday. All the socks and underwear replaced, couple new pairs of jeans, several thermal shirts with matching hats (Connecticut is cold and I cut what remains of my hair very short), couple pairs of shoes and kept it all around $150 total. Like I say, it’s transitional, so I stayed cheaper rather than expensive, but it does look better than what I was wearing. I just couldn’t stand the idea of wearing what I was wearing for another four months.
And I’m back to exercising properly, I’m down six pounds in three weeks and one belt hole different in the right direction, so that’s a good start. Getting through Thanksgiving week which included going out to eat four times plus the whole turkey day routine and I still lost a little weight.
The good news is that just those few changes and I feel much better. I have more energy and I feel like my mood is starting to bounce back as well. Energy + good mood = confidence.
I felt that confidence on Friday night when Jennifer and I went out on a Date Night. Nothing particular special happened while we were out, but back home I was even more relaxed and confident with her than usual. I just found myself calmly requesting things and getting them. So anyway… her orgasm record broken (mildly against her will), a new position and an actual sexual first together for something… um… ok that one is kinda personal. Just accept that I got her compliance with something I wanted and I want to get that again.
So a little exercise, some new clothes and better sex results. I think the “Ball and Chain Demolition Co” shirt was a good choice for Date Night lol.
And to be honest, I’ve been goofy in love with her as well since Friday.


  1. I agree that even a small increase in personal energy and vitality can have a huge impact of sex appleal, and sex drive.

    The opposite is also true. My wife has been going through a rough phase lately. She is a stay at home mom and we have had several illnesses cycle through the house. She looks and feels run down. That means no sex drive on her part, and no real attraction toward her on my part.

    I suppose this is all part of the body agenda. Her body does not want to be pergnant when it is run down and exhausted. My body does not want to get her pregnant in that state either. Never mind that I have had a vasectomy. Our lizard brains do not know that.

    Damn you! Thanks for the tease and causing a bout of jealousy.

  3. Anon – lol sorry. It's probably not what you think it is though. We tried that and didn't like it. :-)

  4. There are only a finite number of things a couple can do together sexually, unless you count minor variations of the same thing. So when someone says they had a sexual first after 16 years or marriage, my curiosity peaks (especially since all the obvious things have probably been tried.)

    (Then again, actually trying even the old standbys would be a welcome change in my life.)

  5. Think I need to go buy a new shirt and hit the gym. Need me a sexy spark.

    Congrats on getting the recovery started, Athol! I fully expect your waistline to drop faster than U.S. unemployment statistics.

  7. For those of us who are not married yet (or currently without a partner), actually going out with some good-looking girlfriends and getting yourself some new threads can do wonders for your energie and outlook.

    Just wearing a crisp new suit makes me stand taller and more dominant than I previously thought possible. Having a partner who really likes me in a suit is a nice added bonus.
