It’s that time of year again, when lovebirds profess their love for each other for all the world to see. While a healthy couple shows their love for each other everyday, Valentine’s is a day where you go the extra mile to show your love for each other. If you have waited to the last minute to get a gift then here are few gift ideas you can get to a promote a healthy and fit lifestyle for you and your partner.
- Has your significant other started to gain weight? Have they let themselves go? Don’t know how to tell them? Well a full year gym membership is a good way to promote a healthy lifestyle change for your partner. Being in a relationship is no excuse to let oneself go. I see it too often, people settle down and they go from hottie to a nottie. If they get offended then dump them, if they cant take the thoughtful gesture then your relationship is doomed anyway.
- Instead of chocolates and candies, try a fruit and veggies basket on for size. Be mindful that many fruits are full of sugar and can be just as bad as candy if not taken in moderation. Remember that sugar tends to turn into fat if not used as energy, and stick around the belly area. Remember, If you really care about your significant other , you wont buy candy. Instead you’ll get her fruits and veggies so they can maintain the shape you fell in love with. And if they’re already a plumper perhaps getting fruits and veggies will put them on the right track to a healthy lifestyle.
- Many couples go out to eat and enjoy sedentary activities during this holiday of love. This year try to set up a date where the two of you can take a long romantic walk before or after your evening meal. That way you can burn off some calories, and enjoy a nice conversation before you head onto more intense activities for the night.* Nothing like a nice long intense walk to get the blood flowing.
These are just a few simple steps you can do to have a healthy Valentine’s day. Even if you don’t have a special someone, remember that you have to love yourself before you can love anyone else. Part of loving yourself is maintaining a fit, active, and healthy lifestyle. Happy Valentine’s Day!
