I may be going through a bit of a mid-life crisis. I am rapidly approaching 40 and sometimes feel like I haven't always "smelled the roses". Get busy living, or get busy dying (quote from Shawshank Redemption).
I had a serious injury that required surgery about 4 years ago and I had to go through quite a bit of rehab in order to heal properly. I got used to going to the gym and, while I was there, I worked out the non-injured body parts too. I have been going 3x a week for several years now. While I don't quite have the muscle development I want, I am decently fit and have never been physically stronger. I really quite enjoy the slight soreness that comes after a good weightlifting session.
|A major goal of mine: looking good naked.|
I do not work out aerobically as much as I should. I generally follow a "lower carb" diet (South Beach) and avoid pasta, bread, potatoes, and baked goods. My weakness is free food and alcohol. I have a hard time turning down baked stuff brought into work and hors doevres (sorry for the spelling!) and alcohol is something I enjoy probably more than I should. That leads to a bit of a gut that I have been more disappointed with lately. This was made more plain when I shaved my chest. My pecs looked good - in fact, I think better - shaved, since it showed my muscle development. Plus it has the added benefit of giving better access to my nipples (wink, wink). My gut area, however, didn't look so good. I was a bit frustrated and realized I might not ever have "six pack abs". This shaving episode made me really focus on being more disciplined with my diet/drinking and aerobic exercise.
|I will never get this big, but I do enjoy the slight soreness from lifting weights.|
I had set a goal to lose about 10 pounds in June. I came up about 2-3 pounds short, but that was mainly because I went off the wagon for Father's Day. I am hoping to continue being disciplined so that when we go on vacation, I can look good.
How does this relate to female domination? When I am working out my added motivation is to think of making my body more attractive for Suzy. It is extremely reinforcing when she caresses my body and compliments me on my muscles. It makes me want to get bigger and lose my gut. I feel a sense of urgency because of my advancing age. I want six packs. It is likely I will fall short of that, but a man needs something to shoot for!
|I love it when Suzy inspects my body.|
* * * * *In spite of my chest shaving, I don't consider myself a "metrosexual". I am not into doing crazy crap with my hair or getting my nails done, and I do struggle with watching chick flicks. I think I'm a guy's guy. I don't act offended when I see a guy with a good body. I more admire it and wonder what he might be doing that I can learn from. It's kind of like when woman say of other women: "she's so pretty". My wife has said several times that she thinks Angelina Jolie is beautiful. I don't think that means she wants to jump in bed and have sex with her. Likewise, I can see a good looking, fit man and admire his discipline and try to see what I can incorporate into my routine. Is that weird?
