The Exercise Porno

Yep.
Porn is an quintessential part of my daily life; I have my beer porn, my food porn, my guided meditation porn and my notoriously difficult-to-break-out-porn, momo porn. 

One porn addition at a time, you see. 

Lately, with much success into early morning meditations, incredibly cold showers and 48-hour water fasts, I have now taken the surprisingly courageous move into uncharted waters of exercise. Though completely content with my one-push-up-a-week workout, I am testing myself whether I can handle the rigors of two-push-ups-a-week. As koreans like to say in these hard times, 화아탕!

I have noticed, with both meditation and cold showers, is that to ease my way into something new, I have to start out small. This might feel like a no brainer but most people I have talked have highly underestimated the power of five minutes. You set yourself doing something for just five minutes for a prolonged period of time, lets say, a week and then increase that by about five the next and so on. You can now imagine how much time you will be spending on that particular thing of yours in about a year or so. 

As I have realized, it's all about momentum and maintaining that. 

To find a way to bring the habit of exercising,  I have dug deeper inside my soul and found the super sexiest in me had an answer. Let's talk about a politically incorrect, highly insensitive matter of who-dominates-who among males and females.

The Super Sexiest in Me Says:
Lets face it, whenever a woman has to pick up something incredibly heavy, she calls a man. A guy-friend, a gay-friend, her boyfriend, partner or husband. At least in my life, I have seen that pattern emerge and  I am not even the most muscular, super honed guy out there, I am just..a guy.

What I am getting at is that men are designed in a way to do hard physical work and women are, technically, not. If you are a 20-something feminist who feels that I should bring in some sense of equality here, just sit back and take a chill pill. 

With that thought process, I honestly thought a woman workout video would be a walk in the park for me. Besides, watching guys working out is not really my thing. I would have if I was gay. So, like a good researcher, I pop opened google and typed the keywords "women workouts dumbells" and that led me to this video:


And my oh my, the first warm up felt way too dance-y. I would prefer doing that Hawaiian dance that are always on the network with the sunset and beautiful skies and the beach and the cocktail..sigh. But the workout took a serious turn right after that.

Five minutes in I was panting like an asthma patient. The video has these combination of dumbbell exercises that works on both your upper and lower body. Ten minutes in and my heart rate higher than the time I had a whole habanero. If you don't know what I mean, trick yourself into thinking that a fresh habanero is a tomato and chew hard, real hard.

You seriously get high eating habaneros
For now, I have stopped at that. My plan is to keep that 10 minute, heart pumping workout and then increase about 5 minutes every week.

You go girl!
