Single or Attached - Which is Better? Blog Prompt
Tuesday, February 10, 2009
This blog prompt intrigued me. I actually fit in both categories right now. I am single as in not married, but I am in a long distance relationship. He is very supportive and loves to work out just like I do. When we are together we can work out with one another. One of the advantages of being single is the ability to use my time how I like. I can go to the gym whenever I want. I can eat what I want, when I want it. Even though my guy is supportive, if we were married and I had to consider him when fixing food that would be a challenge. He would eat way more than I do and quite differently as he has commented on some of my meals. I know quite a few women here on the site who do not have the support of their spouse which makes it really hard for them. They have children to tend to and lack the time they need to commit to themselves. I on the other hand can commit as much time as I want to myself. I think there are pros and cons on both sides. The important thing is to plan. Talk your plans over with your family so they will know what you are doing and can try to assist in whatever way they can. Sometimes things are hard because of how we start them. A lifestyle change means that you include everyone in your life in your plans. I have told all the people important to me what I am doing and they are seeing the results.
For me being single and losing weight is easier, because I tend to cater to others. I am learning to put myself first and learning my body. Once these lessons are learned, anyone can come into my life and not disrupt the patterns I have begun. Whether single or married, our families deserve the best of us. And since we only get one life to live - we should look fabulous living it and enjoy the journey along the way!!!
