As you and your partner embark on this new journey together as newlyweds, it’s important to prioritize your health, making sure to stay active, work towards healthy eating habits, and enjoy time together. Being fit together is a great way to keep your relationship fresh and have fun staying healthy! Here are a few tips to start you off:

Make Fitness Fun

Instead of looking at fitness as a chore, make it something you can do together. Whether it’s bike rides, hiking, or trying out yoga together and new fitness classes (like Zumba!), find something to make exercise enjoyable. Take turns coming up with new activities to try out together and you’ll both be having so much fun, you won’t even realize you’re working out.

Eat Healthy Meals Together

Cooking and eating healthy meals together can not only bond you and your partner, but you can also make it a healthy habit. Meal prepping healthy breakfasts or lunches for the week is a great way to start. Alternatively, opt to pick one day of the month to try a new healthy recipe together – this will be fun and help you both learn how to make delicious, nutritious meals!

Set Realistic Goals Together

Discuss what fitness goals you both want to accomplish together. Instead of focusing on scales, more on how you both feel. Being healthy isn’t about hitting a certain weight or clothing size — it’s about feeling good mentally and physically. Set goals for an activity you can do as a couple. Track each other’s progress and focus on the positive to stay motivated.

Rest and Recharge Together

Lastly, don’t forget to rest and recharge. Balance is key and over-exercising can actually be harmful. Make sure you and your partner are taking breaks throughout the week and don’t over-do it. That could mean getting a massage, taking walks after dinner, or just staying indoors and cuddling together. Whatever helps you and your spouse relax, make sure to make time for it!

Newlywed life is an exciting adventure, and staying fit and healthy together helps keep the romance alive. With these tips for making fitness fun and setting realistic goals, your hearts will stay happy and healthy!
