    Setbacks and struggles are part of any achievement.

    MarriageFit 11: Change

    20/08/2018 Duração: 25min

    Change can be hard, overwhelming, intimidating—we all know that. It can also lead us to become the exact people we want to be when we do it right.  The key to enduring and even creating the right kind of change is what leads us. By focusing on the why instead of the how we can take on bigger, badder goals that lead to big change.  **Exciting announcement that you have to hear!** We can apply the why vs. how to all of the 5 Fs and replace "How am I ever going to tackle this?" with "Why am I making this change?"  One strategy we've used is dream boards. We're visual people so seeing what the result will look like helps adjust our perspective, motivate our actions and create gratitude for the journey. Effective dream boards aren't just pretty pictures; they have to have due dates and focus.  - Just remember, tomorrow you can be better version of you if you're not satisfied by changing what you are doing. But today you are perfect.  

  • MarriageFit 10: First Impressions

    MarriageFit 10: First Impressions

    13/07/2018 Duração: 27min

    First Impressions We attended a seminar by Silvie Di Giusto hosted by FiveFour and her message was all about first impressions, stereotypes, and how to use them to your advantage. 7 seconds is all it takes for someone to make a first impression on us. Even if we're wrong, that first impression sticks! We've been thinking about how people make first impressions on us. Our brains are wired to judge people based on that initial interaction, but if we're aware of what's happening, we might avoid making an inaccurate, negative judgement. The gym is a place where first impressions are huge! People on average drive around a new gym 10 times before walking in the door. Once comfortable inside, we find that the gym is a great place to bond with people. How to make impressions positive: Be authentic Play to your strengths Accept the things you can't change (being unique is great) Acknowledge your initial judgement of someone but leave room to be wrong! During this episode we also rewind to our first impr

  • MarriageFIT 9: Better Self-Care

    MarriageFIT 9: Better Self-Care

    05/06/2018 Duração: 26min

    #SelfCare is #TrendingNow. And we love it.  30-day challenges, cleanses, finance boot camps, etc. are "microwave," short-term solutions. They're quick but can lead to failure, burnout and might not get you to your goals. Self-care, on the other hand, can lead you to gradual, long-term change for your fitness, relationships, or finance (and even fun!).  Before you start to make a change and invest in your own self-care, you have to ask: who are you doing it for? Here's what we know:  Doing something to make other people happy won't get you far Doing something for yourself is rewarding, more likely to be successful, more sustainable, and something you can be proud of When we have taken care of ourselves, that's when we become better people. Being selfish can actually help us become more selfless. Take it day by day and you'll get there.  Until we see you again, take care!

  • MarriageFit 7: Whats it that you want?

    MarriageFit 7: What's "it" that you want?

    05/06/2018 Duração: 33min

    What is "it" that you want? "It" probably has nothing to do with it because we all want some of the same basic things: to bond, to be proud of ourselves, and to feel passion for life. As humans, we may care too much what people think and we may be inherently lazy, but that shouldn't stop us from finding success in our fitness or relationships. Instead, we can use this knowledge to overcome, to develop discipline, and to focus on what really matters. Our financial planning inspired this topic of commitment and clear goals.  Most people say things like, "I want to be healthy," "I want to make a lot of money," or "I want a happy marriage." It sounds great, but if we can't identify why we want these things or if we can't create a specific way to visualize what it looks like to accomplish these things, we will never get there.  This episode is for anyone who is tackling a goal and doesn't know how to get there!

    MarriageFit 6: Goals, Goals, Goals

    04/06/2018 Duração: 24min

    It's 2018. Everyone is talking about goals. Goals are here to help us be better than ourselves right now. We all want to grow; goals are here to help us get there in every aspect of life. BUT. We have to commit. We have to break out of our comfort zone. Some people have different approaches, but having an attainable, measurable, write-downable goal can give you the first step and the commitment you need. Here's how: Look at the last year, what did you achieve? Find a template (We use this: Keep it simple** Keep it to 3 goals: 1 that's achievable, 1 that's a reach, and 1 that's a mountain Choose goals in different categories: fitness, finances, or family Okay, but how do you really achieve a goal? Write it down and remind yourself of your commitment Forgive yourself, if you make a mistake, you have the chance to get back to it tomorrow Stay accountable, get someone else involved with your goals: your spouse, a friend, social media Go get your goals, friends!
