In today’s society, we are cursed blessed with the luxurious of gourmet food, big screen TVs, video games, the internet and big relaxing recliners. We take advantage of these luxurious every change we get. Over indulging in these activities limit our ability and motivation to get up and get moving.
The one thing that is missing out of the above list, just as missing out of our daily live, is exercise/physical fitness. As an individual and a couple, physical fitness must be a priority.
14 Day Marriage Challenge: Get Physical
Why Physical Fitness
We live in the age where we want it fast and we want it easy. We want it up close and personal. Americans have gotten lazy and we find every way to limit our physical fitness activities because we are too busy “living”.
As a couple, physical fitness is behind every other task that is on our to-do list. We have children, careers, church and social activities to attend. Once we complete those activities we are too tired to think about getting fit, eating healthy.
Nevertheless, as a couple, you must find ways to stay active. There have been recent studies that showed we mimic what our spouse does or becomes. So keep in mind that per the New England Journal of Medicine study in 2007 notated that as a married couple your chances of obesity increases by 37 percent if your spouse becomes obese.
Our desire when we get married is to have a long HEALTHY marriage with our spouse. Don’t sabotage your health and limit the amount of years you will have with your spouse.
So combat any physical or health problems we need to get active.
I challenge you and your spouse to get up and get active. The purpose of this challenge is to get you guys moving and to improve your health.
Ways to Get Physical:
1. Go for a walk together
2. Play Michael Jackson experience or Dance Central on Xbox or PlayStation
3. Exercise together
4. Have Sex (yep you burn calories)
5. Do yard work together
What are some activities you and your spouse participate in to get you physically fit?
