January is my least sexy month, especially this year with the lack of snow for back country skiing. I’ve been enduring it, willing the thirty-one, cold dark days to pass quickly, like a bad cold
It’s such non-sexy thinking.
So I’ve decided to make a shift. Instead of fighting it, I am simply going to allow January. Because there is something very mammalian that keeps me in bed for ten hours at night. And that uncontrollable urge to devour a fourth piece of pizza? It must be primal.
I’m surrendering fully and sensually to:
Long steamy showers every night before I crawl into my pre-heated (electric mattress pads rock) nest of soft flannel and down.
Four servings of pizza.
Big cups, as many as I want, of organic ginger and licorice tea.
Cutting my swim workout in half and making up the difference in the hot tub.
Naps on the couch between chapters of erotic fiction.
Big bowls, as many as I want, of homemade vegetable soup.
Slow luxurious hikes rather than running.
Yoga and meditation by candlelight in the dark hours of morning.

2. Try my Sexy Pizza recipe:
Use Wasa Crisp Bread (usually located in the cracker aisle) for your crust. I use the Light Rye or Hearty Rye varieties. Cover them with sauce and your favorite toppings and bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. They are light, crispy and oh so sexy with a big salad. Even if you eat four.
