Healthy Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day With Your Swolemate
Are you and your swolemate having a tough time deciding whether to hit the gym, or go directly to the Valentine’s Day date “dinner and a movie”? There’s no doubt that scheduling around Valentine’s Day distractions can make it challenging to enjoy the day with your significant other and stay on course with daily training. Whatever your plans are for the day, definitely celebrate each other! After all, it’s the one day a year that’s dedicated to you both. Enjoy it together!
Take a cheat day
Trying to mentally justify cheating on Valentine’s Day can be a mind-bender. The answer? Simply schedule your cheat day around it, so you can enjoy the day together. What better cheat day than V Day?
Go to the gym together — it’s Valentine’s Day!
Head there early and spend the morning working out together. Then, lead into lunch and dinner to continue the celebration together.
Celebrate Valentine’s Day at home
If you want to skip the whole restaurant thing, celebrate Valentine’s Day at home. Just because you’re not going out, you can still celebrate! Plus, celebrating at home makes it a lot easier to stick to your diet and budget. After all, you’re in full control, making your own food. Speaking of full, preparing your own controls the amount of food you’re consuming.
Mix it up
Instead of the typical Valentine’s dinner-and-a-movie date, there are lots of other fun and healthy ways to spend time together. Some suggestions…. Get a couples’ massage. Take a spin class. Or, simply a nice stroll on the beach.
Well, besides — um — that, we mean more like go on a date that involves moving your bodies in other ways. Like dancing. Or, rock climbing, ice skating, walking. Be creative!
Skip the chocolates and go with flowers
