It’s one thing to reach a point in your life where you’re finally ready to start a workout plan. You can be as serious as can possibly be and truly have the ways and means to back it up. But there’s something you must take care of before starting if you haven’t yet. Your significant other needs to be on board. You need to be extra honest with your wife or husband about your workout goals, and here’s why.
Let Them Help You
The most honest you are with them about your goals, the more they’ll be able to help you. They’ll encourage you to keep going if you’re having an off day. They’ll make sure to tell you how good you’re looking because they know you’re working hard at it. Explain to them how much this means to you, and they’ll be happy to support you.
And Not Get In Your Way
The opposite is also true. If you’re not honest with them about your plans, they won’t understand why you’re spending so much time out of the house, when you’re simply at the gym. Even worse, you may skip out on workouts in order to save face, when if you had only told them what you wanted to be doing, they would encourage you to exercise instead.
