Whether you’re just starting out in a brand new relationship or have been with your partner for ages, here are some EasyLoss tips that will help you stay in shape when you’re in a relationship.
Keep an eye on your portion sizes.
When we’re in a relationship it is easy to slip into the habit of dishing yourself up the same size portion as your other half. Be ultra-aware of listening to your body’s signal that you are ‘no longer hungry’ and make sure that you dish yourself up the correct size portion for you. Buying yourself a smaller plate in the same design as the one you dish your partner’s meal up on will help.
Make a romantic walk part of your daily time together.
Instead of putting your feet up in front of the TV after your evening meal why not get in the habit of taking a 30 minute stroll each evening. It’s a great way to de-stress and chat about each other’s day. You’ll find that you barely notice that you’re exercising and it’s a great way to top up those recommended 10,000 steps a day. Keep up your own time with the girls for your classes such as Zumba, Pilates and Aqua-aerobics. Whilst it can be lovely to spend every possible minute with your other-half, it is healthy to have your special times just for you and your girlfriends too.
While cuddling up in front of the fire is lovely, why not start a new healthy hobby together? Ice skating can be great fun or you could try rock climbing or cycling for example. Dancing is great fun and really good exercise too. Why not try your local ballroom dancing classes and who knows… you could be the next big thing on ‘Strictly!’
Have more romantic dinners at home rather than eating out at restaurants.
This way you can make sure to use healthy ingredients and manage your portions sizes. Lay the table with beautiful table linen, cutlery, plates etc, dim the lights, light some candles and play your favourite music…what could be better than that?
