- Where to start
Are you asking permission?
Of course not. Right? You’re simply “running it by” your significant other. A new expensive diet when you’ve already spent XYZ amount on three other ones that didn’t work or gym passes to that really nice new gym with the hydromassage beds that you swear you’ll go to everyday. But you’re afraid to bring it up because that person has seen you fail all those other times. What’s going to be different this time? Are you ready for that question? Because if you aren’t, you’ll set yourself up for failure and that potentially life changing decision gets put on the back burner.
How bad do you want it?
First and foremost, ask yourself, how bad do you want it? You don’t have to be 100% right away, it takes time. You just have to want it more than you don’t, 51% is all it takes to start. Once you see results that number will rise naturally. Find your WHY. Maybe your children. How do you want them to see you? Tired and sluggish or energetic and lively? The latter we know. Show them that’s possible, be the example. Then consider the possibilities when it does work. It will change everything! The value is you’ll feel amazing, move faster, your body won’t hurt, you could run with your kids, pick them up, you could sleep better, have better sex, all of it.
Where to get started
First off, talking to your significant other about a goal you want to achieve is never a bad thing, especially if it requires monetary investment. Yes, you have to consider yourself first and do what’s best for you. However, they’re still your partner and best friend so having that conversation is a sign of respect. And if they see how important it is to you, they should understand and figure out how to make it work with and for you. Don’t be afraid to have the discussion, you might be surprised by the response. Think about the questions your partner may have and be prepared for them to come up. Also, go into the convo thinking collaboration not adversaries. For example, “How can we make this work” instead of “Can I”. Also, know your value. Because you are on the back burner quite often and your happiness is important too.
