But, you donโ€™t always need your man to join you in your fitness journey. ย 

โฃ

I hear the turmoil of womenโ€™s relationships daily in my office. When working with a female client base whether weโ€™re focusing on their weight, self-confidence, time management or marathon goals, you better believe their spouses support or lack-thereof becomes a commonplace discussion point. โฃโฃ

โฃโฃ

This spouse: this partner, this co-parent, this co-habitator, boyfriend, fiance or husband: heโ€™s important. I get it. Like it or not, if youโ€™re choosing another human to spend the majority of your time and energy on: having their love is essential: BUT, having their undenying excitement over YOUR fitness goals is not always necessary. โฃโฃ

โฃโฃ

Let me explain: โฃโฃ

โฃโฃ

  • Your man can love you without eating your nutrition plan. If heโ€™s not bitching about your salad, let the man eat. โฃโฃ

โฃโฃ

  • Your man can love you without joining a gym just cause you did. He might have his own form of fitness and the box gym isnโ€™t him, but if YOU like the treadmill: have at it. โฃโฃ

โฃโฃ

  • Your man can love you without complimenting your weight loss: โ€˜Cause god damnit they never know what to say and talking about a womenโ€™s body is a touchy ass subject. Perhaps he just loves you no matter what. โฃโฃ

โฃโฃ

So if youโ€™ve got a good man that is supporting you in his own kind of way: LET HIM. If you have the same values, the same beliefs and the same love for each other: having personal and independent goals along the way is A-OK.ย ย โฃโฃ

So hereโ€™s a gentle reminder for my females out there wishfully waiting for their spouse to join them along their goal chasing: โฃโฃ

โฃโฃ

Itโ€™s OK to have your own thing. Itโ€™s OK to find a coach or tribe to push you. Itโ€™s OK to look externally for support. Itโ€™s OK to have someone rooting you on from the sidelines. Itโ€™s OK to have undeniable love and support for your partner without going through the motions in unison.
