“Juuuuulie…. Eat me…”
Today was one of those days and I happily obliged.
I made myself a big ol’ breakfast wrap with scrambled eggs, portobello mushrooms, broccoli and onion.
I wrapped the egg mixture in a Joseph’s lavash wrap and dug in!
It hit zee spot.
Gettin’ Him to the Gym
This morning at the gym in between songs during my typical Wednesday BodyPump class, a girl turned to me and said, “I need your tips on how to get my boyfriend to come to the gym with me. He thinks he still has his college body, but, well… he doesn’t.”
Of course we laughed, but it made me feel lucky that working out is a personal interest of Ryan’s.
I started to think about her question in a little more detail during a short run with Sadie after the class. What would I do if Ryan didn’t like working out?
Here are a couple of ideas Ryan and I came up with to try to motivate your significant other, friend or family member to workout with you:
- Make it a social experience… Go on a jog outside together, spot each other in the weight room, etc.
- Take a group exercise class (Even guys like spinning!)
- Have a reward waiting after your workout (People at my gym live for the free coffee and will sit in the cafe and enjoy each other’s company after a good workout)
- Do the workout where they’re comfortable, whether it be outside, in the gym or at home
- Start with an exercise they’re comfortable with (Some people hate cardio while others are really intimidated by weights)
- In return for working out with you, offer to do something they’re interested in
Would it bother you if your partner didn’t work out or live an active lifestyle?
Having a partner who didn’t go to the gym would not be a deal breaker for me, but I definitely need to be with someone active who likes to get out of the house and explore, go on walks with me and Sadie and be outside.
