One of the best things about being in a relationship is making new memories. Most of the quality or bonding time spent with each other tends to involve FOOD, and before you know it you’ve gone up a pants size! There are a few things you can do to make sure you stay as fine as you were when you attracted your bae! The following are a few tips to get you started.
Make gym time a priority for you. Don’t give up your gym time for dinner and drinks with your boo. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is possible, even if you indulge in a few high calorie shenanigans. Even though you are technically “off of the market” you still want to have a good shelf life! Staying fit in your relationship can also remove feelings of inadequacies or insecurities.
Swap out a few date nights for gym night and ask your mate to join you. According to a study by Women’s Health Magazine, women tend to feel more confident after a good sweat fest and have a more positive physical self-image at this time. Paying attention to both his health and yours can lead to a healthier lifestyle, and show him how much you care about his well-being.
You had what it took to catch him so do what it takes to keep him. You don’t have to completely give up eating time with your mate. However, seeing the benefits in making better choices can prevent the weight from creeping upon you. Incorporating healthier options and exercising can help your relationship grow longer and stronger!
