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.
