We’ve got this:
Stocking our kitchen with veggies, fruits, beans, and whole grains….check!
Remembering that Health goes beyond greens, beans, and all nutrient-dense things…..:
Me: (pause) “I’m sorry, repeat the last one…”
So, I’ve got this situation you see. It’s not bad. I just, hmm…., sometimes I need a reminder that well-being is not solely about the kale smoothie I had, or even the yoga class I just finished. I can’t preach about how healthy I am, nor how healthy he’s becoming, if I’m not working on the health of our relationship–which is just as much a part of the Wellness equation.
I invest a lot into studying nutrition, and then work continuously to make better choices in my food consumption. This investment is a never-ending one, and that’s fine by me, but with a wedding fast approaching, I welcome a new focus (uh, MARRIAGE!) that I may pour as much heart and soul into.
My plan of action (in general terms):
Spend quality time. No cell at the dinner table! Date!
Be a supportive partner.
Share interests. Share chores. Share in the decision making and problem solving.
Communicate (I can’t expect him to be a mind reader–Darnit!)
Be affectionate (more hugs, the merrier)
