As a couple, you have to figure out your WHY. This will be challenging, and until you come up with a strong why, nothing else will matter. Many people fail because they lack inspiration and motivation. A strong why motivates and inspires and eventually helps you to form good habits. A strong, negative why is also at the heart of the bad habits that are having an adverse effect on your marriage right now. As an example of a why, my mission in life is to inspire, equip, and motivate people to discover God’s great potential in them, and then develop and deploy it. In short, I help people find their purpose and fulfill it. Without a healthy, functioning body, I will not be able to carry out my mission. As a holistic personal growth and development expert, I know the body, soul, and spirit must be in synergy for eternal success to be achieved. In short, good health is the foundation on which everything else depends. The most effective and efficient way to stay healthy is by exercising regularly. It takes two to tango, and the two of you will have to sit down and figure out why exercising together is not only a good thing to do, but essential. This will not be an easy process, but you have to do it if you want a strong, healthy, and vibrant marriage. You will need to compare notes and figure out how to be on the same page if you’re going to succeed. This is not an opportunity to focus on all that went wrong in the past, but a chance to focus on what is possible. Do not allow the past to define your future; it is within your power to change your future, and now is an opportunity. If you have no plan, you are already planning to fail. That is why the starting point for you is discovering your why; it is the cornerstone of any plan that stands a chance of succeeding. It is also vital to incorporate sustainability into your why, because you have to plan for a lifetime. The quality of your life and all the goals you set for yourself will never be achieved if you are in poor health. To overlook this simple yet crucial point is tantamount to shooting yourself in the foot. We are glad that you desire to build a successful, healthy, and vibrant marriage and are honored to partner with you to make that happen. We understand that it will not be easy but want to encourage you to hang in there because you are not alone. Many couples struggle with exercising together because, at times, they do not know what to do. In some cases, they have tried, and it did not work out for various reasons. But no matter how good the reason, maybe it is not enough to justify you not trying again. There is much to be gained by exercising together, so you have to try and try again until you get it right. Both of you should sit down and evaluate your quality of life. Do you know your body mass index? What about your cholesterol level, blood pressure, and blood sugar? We are suggesting that you get a medical checkup and let the facts speak for themselves. This is going to avoid all the arguments, self-justification, and pushback to do something about your health situation. Without any health, there is no good marriage anyway. If you are suffering from diseases that are directly related to bad eating habits and lack of exercise, you MUST do something about it, for the sake of your health and that of your marriage. How can you justify spending all that time on the sickbed when you could have been traveling or having fun with your husband or wife? This implies that your why must be centered around you being in top form and maximizing the time that you have together. Another component of your why is the benefit that will spill into the lives of your children if you have them. If you do not have kids now, you may have them in the future. Not only will your children benefit from the excellent example you, as their parents, are setting, but other husbands and wives will be inspired and motivated by your story, just as we hope our story is inspiring and motivating you. Your why should not be an elaborate and grandiose plan, but it should be strong enough to get you both out of bed each morning, come rain or shine. It must go beyond your feelings, what you like, and what you dislike. Start by asking simple questions, such as:
How do we want to age?
Do you want to age gracefully and by doing all within your power to avoid the preventable diseases that people erroneously associate with aging?
There are many things people just accept and assume come with getting older. Take, for example, that many people believe weight gain with aging is the norm. This is not true. When you get older, your metabolism does reduce, and you do start depositing more fat, which does lead to weight gain. But instead of allowing this to continue, you have to focus on adapting your portion size, what you eat, and exercising. If you do this, you are going to cut back on the weight gain. In other words, you are not at the mercy of your age.
