Since we’ve switched back to our old gym routine I’m actually enjoying the workouts and have been good about going 4 mornings per week.

I wonder, is it reasonable and ok to use a fantasy to get you out of bed and to the gym? Years ago in my early/mid teens, I did the swim leg of a triathlon as part of a team. I was a very skinny little thing but a strong swimmer. The water was cold so, as soon as I was out of the water and handed over to my team mate, I headed to the showers.

The sight that greeted me (once I’d stopped shivering enough to focus) was to become a lasting fantasy. There were 4 or 5 communal showers at the end of the room and long open benches and the room was full of men happily stripping off and showering together and chatting while they were completely naked. These were triathletes, so there were a lot of good bodies around. Ever since, I’ve loved the idea of sex in a changeroom.

So, with that in mind, I will haul my butt out of bed in the morning and get myself to my workout. I rarely see sights that equal the fantasy, but that’s what fantasies are all about.
