Well, it’s been about 2 years since I had a solid workout plan, as well as a solid diet plan. I’ve reached the point where nothing fits, “sucking it in” isn’t going to cut it, I’m always fatigued, I sleep for shit, and I just plain feel like crap.
I’m in the process of changing to a paleo/primal lifestyle (which shouldn’t be hard, I was vegetarian for 4 years/vegan for 2 years/sXe for a looooooooong time), as well as working on bettering the physical aspects of my life. No point in having kettlebells, barbells, med balls, and various other equipment if it’s not getting used, right?
My fiancé is pretty apprehensive about the changes I’m making, one because she has no interest in any part of it (diet change and working out), and two, she feels like I’m going to make all these changes and decide to leave her because she won’t. It’s a great feeling.
I’ve never asked her to change, nor would I ever. If she wants to do it with me, awesome. If not, cool. I hate that she feels like this new lifestyle is a burden on her, and she’s going to be forced to change at some point…..but that’s all on her.
I asked her if we would’ve started dating had I been a vegetarian or a non-drinker, and she said most likely not…..even though I’m an avid non-smoker and didn’t let her smoking interfere.
God forbid I try to do something to better myself.
