What Sex and the City Taught Me About Fitness
1. Gossiping Is an Effective Method for Elevating Your Heart Rate.
Gossip definitely increases your heart rate. Is it an effective method, though? Doubtful, as any negative gossip could bring about stress which stimulates weight gain hormones.
Sex and the City Fit Tip: Adding gossip to your workout can help you burn extra calories.
2. Throwing Chocolate Cake in the Trash Isn't Enough.
When Miranda found herself in the throws of a chocolate addiction, she baked herself a cake. Still, her chocolate cravings overwhelmed her as she devoured her cake sliver by sliver. She decided she needed to regain control, so she threw the cake in the trash. Moments later she returned to the kitchen and ate a sliver of cake right out of the trash can. It was in that moment, she knew things had gone too far. So she drizzled dish detergent on top of that homemade diet wrecker.
Sex and the City Fit Tip: Chocolate cake is a drug. For an addict, merely throwing it in the trash isn't enough. Don't let it derail your progress. You must throw it in the trash, and pour dish detergent on it.
3. Sprinting in High Heels
Cheating on Aidan with Mr. Big was too much for Carrie. Big was a different person during the affair, doing things like popping up at her apartment unannounced. That accompanied with his neediness and jealousy were so not "Big."
One afternoon, Big came to her apartment again unannounced while Aidan was there. Carrie offered to take Aidan's dog Pete for a walk, as an excuse to go outside and chastise Mr. Big. At some point during the argument, Pete got off of his leash and ran away. The next thing we see is Carrie chasing Pete, in her 6" Christian Louboutins.
Sex and the City Fit Tip: Stiletto sprints are an effective form of cardio, just make sure to strengthen those ankles ladies.
