Hot Tips for Sexually Confident Wives #37

Work Out Together!
Yeah, it’s that time of year… when the scales read several numbers higher than normal. Ugh!

Dieting doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom. In fact, it can boost your sex life BIG-time!

After dinner each night, try getting on the treadmill while your husband stretches or lifts weights. When you’re done on the treadmill, switch places.

And guess what you do the whole time? Yep, talk. Share about our day. Bond. Cheer each other on.

This will give yourself just enough of a physical boost right before bedtime that you don’t collapse under the covers exhausted and lethargic. Shimmy between the sheets feeling a little sexier than you did two or three pounds ago, with plenty of energy for more than just a goodnight kiss.

Perhaps you’re thinking that you shouldn’t exercise at bedtime because it will keep you from a restful sleep. I always thought that too, but I’ve busted that myth. If anything, your evening workouts will help you relieve stress, clear your mind, and prepare for a great night’s sleep… and a whole lot more.

Try it – and let me know how those wonderful nighttime workouts work for you!
