Food & Fitness Survey for You and Your Fiance

Food & Fitness Survey for You and Your Fiance

Hello, all you fabulous SB readers! My fitness pro husband, Daniel, and I are super excited about sharing today’s post with you! It’s a topic we didn’t know to discuss before we got married, because we just thought the other person would obviously live the exact same lifestyle we were used to living. Let me tell you, not the case! When I was looking forward to checking out at a new restaurant after work, he was looking forward to a home cooked meal. When I was planning on a Saturday morning yoga session with the girls, he was thinking that we would go for a nice leisurely jog together on the trail. We found ourselves wondering….”how have we never discussed what our personal likes, dislikes and expectations are when it comes to food and fitness and how can we make them mesh?”

It’s imperative to ask the tough questions before saying “I Do”  to ensure your hopes, dreams, goals, values and aspirations line up. If you’re getting married in a church, you will most likely will have to take a pre-marriage counseling course, and even work with a pastor, who will ask probing questions to make sure you know each other well.

We couldn’t agree more that getting to know the person you plan on spending every single day of your life with is a darn good idea! So that’s why we’re digging a little deeper into the “ins and outs” of everyday life with our food and fitness survey for you and your fiance.  These questions probably don’t weigh quite as heavily as “do you want children?” or “what holidays do you celebrate?” But getting to know the type of lifestyle your fiance wants to lead will not only help you get on the same page, but it will also show you both where you can inspire and motivate one another as you plan for the fun times ahead!
