Fitness is a Lot Like Marriage

I was listening to a book discussing marriage.

For a marriage to last…

– You must take responsibility for your faults…you know the things that annoy your partner.

– You must commit for the long haul.

– Marriage moves from lust and passion to deep love and appreciation the longer it lasts.

– You have to be willing to appreciate the challenges and faults of your partner and your relationship.  

– You have to know the difference between faults and abuse. 

– The longer it lasts the more comfortable and comforting it becomes.

– To keep the spark alive engage in new activities both as a couple and separately.  

– Do things for the other person with no reciprocity expected.

For fitness to last…

– You must take responsibility for your faults and counterbalance them. 

– You must commit for the long haul.

– Fitness moves from short term fixes to a deep appreciation and need the longer you experience it.

– You have to be willing to appreciate the challenges fitness provides you.

– You have to know the difference between challenges and abusing your body.

– Fitness becomes your new normal if you do it long enough.

– Try new types of physical activities to stay engaged with fitness. 

– Do fitness for the sake of doing fitness with no expectation of external rewards.
