Grab your gym shoes and your nearest book, because it's time for another Romance Novel Reader Workout! Just think of me as Jillian Michaels, only with flatter hair and a tendency to encourage you by saying things like, “Unless you faint, puke, or die, keep reading!”
As with the Romance Novel Reader Workout I, these are meant to be done while reading a romance novel. Today's workout is mostly body movement, so no handweights are needed unless you want to use some. If there's an exercise name you don't recognize, look it up on YouTube: I promise there will be sixty-zillion 1 minute videos of people in various stages of undress demonstrating that exercise. Pick your favorite, learn it, and get back to reading!
Standard disclaimers apply: dude, I'm not a physician. I can recommend books to read but I can't discern your state of health or your physical limitations so by all means work hard but be kind to yourself. To put it another way, ask your doctor before beginning any exercise regimen. However, I am confident in my ability to offer the following advice: drink plenty of water and read plenty of books. Both are good for you.
And now, Romance Novel Reader Workout, Part II, in graphic form suitable for pinning, sharing, printing, and pointing at!
Be scared: more workouts are coming (hur) especially as I start listing cliches in romance novel sex scenes, mwahahha. If you have questions or suggestions for future workouts, please share, either in the comments or via email. And if you have pics of yourself doing the workouts, please share them with me. I may do some instructional videos on different exercise sets, dressed as ridiculously as possible, with the largest stack of hardback romances I can find.
If you've made a resolution to get in better shape or to take better care of yourself, I hope this is helpful and fun. Remember: KEEP READING! AND BREATHING!
