Nutrisystem Day 11 - Sex as Cardio Exercise

Nutrisystem Day 11 - Sex is Now My Cardio Exercise

Today's Nutrisystem Tips:

Vigorous sex can count as a cardio workout.

And now, here are the details of my 11th day on NS...

What I Weighed Today: 201 lbs. (8am)

As you have probably noticed...I’m having sex. Now let’s get one thing straight here: I am having sex as a means to an end. This guy is really not that into me but he likes having sex with me so I am being exceedingly nice to him ("nice" is a relative term but I am holding my tongue-figuratively-in order to keep the peace). I need him to stay active with me until one of two things happens:

1.    I finish this experiment (a year)
2.    I find another acceptable sex partner to take his place

I can not do this without regular sex. 

Couple of reasons:

1.    Evening is the worst time for me diet-wise so I need a distraction
2.    The extra exercise is great
3.    Getting naked in front of someone on a regular basis is an EXCELLENT incentive to stay in shape

Look folks, I either have a satisfying love life or a satisfying sex life but I never have both at the same time, hence the fact that I am 41 years old and have never been married or even lived with a man.

Living with that reality is all fine and dandy when you can comfort yourself with all-you-can-eat Brazilian BBQ.   But when you are down to a couple of thousand calories a day you start re-examining the other areas of your life that are not being fulfilled. I don’t have a lot of faith in filling the love spot so I might as well service the G-spot. 

I find myself looking at sex as a way to get in a little extra stretching and aerobic activity. This guy I am hooking up with is a marathoner, too.  He just keeps going and going!  It’s exhausting but rather addictive. After he leaves I do have the desire to eat something yummy (like chips or black licorice) before I fall off to sleep but since I don’t keep anything like that in the house anymore, it’s easy to resist.

What I Ate Today:
Breakfast: NS Apple Strudel Scone, 1 oz. Low-Fat String Cheese, 1 nectarine, 4 cups Coffee w/8 tablespoons Fat-Free Creamer & 4 tablespoons Sugar-Free Hazelnut syrup – 370.7 calories
Lunch: NS Pasta with Beef, 1oz. Low-Fat String Cheese, 3 cups Baby Carrots, 1oz. Low-Fat Lunch Meat – 375 calories
Snack: 1 apple, 1 Non-fat Yogurt – 135.1 calories
Dinner: NS Mashed Potatoes with Meatloaf & Tomato Sauce, 3 cups Mixed Steamed Vegetables, 2 tablespoons Light I-Can’t-Believe-It’s-Not-Butter  – 485.8 calories
Dessert: NS Honey Mustard Pretzel Sticks, Frozen Fruit Cup - Ruby Red Grapefruit  – 260 calories


Sexual Activity, 20 minutes 

There’s one more thing that needs to be made clear about this situation.  The fact that he’s really only in this for sex is not a tragedy.  In fact, with the goal I have ahead of me it is for the best that I keep this on a physical level. The minute my heart gets involved we run the risk that I will get hurt, and when I get hurt, I get hungry.  REALLY HUNGRY!! So let’s just hope I can keep my wits about me and my eyes on the prize.

Product Reviews:
* NS Apple Strudel Scone  – 140 calories
WTF? Still Barf-a-licious.
* NS Pasta with Beef  – 150 calories
WTF? More barf. Glad this is my last container of this crap.
* NS Mashed Potatoes with Meatloaf & Tomato Sauce – 250 calories
YUM! Well alrighty!! Glad I get one tasty meal today.  Sweet. Tangy. Meaty.  The potatoes were beige, which threw me off but they tasted really good, so who gives a rat’s ass about color.  The serving was teeny, but I’ve learned to expect that of the things that actually taste good.  
* NS Honey Mustard Pretzel Sticks – 140 calories
WTF? Still tastes like old underwear. Someone should be beaten for this travesty.
