Is Your Mate Just Letting Themself Go??

Here you are working out, trying to be more active and health conscious, watching what you eat and trying to be the absolute best you can possibly be, but in the meantime, you can't help but to notice that your mate...well...isn't. As you're running out the door to catch your next pilates class, he/she's sitting on the couch with the remote firmly in hand, munching on an oversized bag of Cheetos. This is a familiar scene, and one that is playing more and more frequently lately. You also can't help but to notice that sweetie pie's waistline is getting a bit oversized, too. Unlike you, this doesn't seem to be bothering him or her one bit. What do you do?

The "honey, you're puttin on a bit of weight" neck of the woods is pretty dangerous territory and you must tread there carefully! While your sweetheart obviously knows they've put on a pound (or 20), they really don't want to hear this from you, even if you do mean well. If you want to take some action here, it's best to be a bit crafty about it!

Here are a few strategies you might want to try:

Rant and rave about this new class at the gym, telling honey that it's exactly the type of thing he/she will go nuts for.
Try to get him/her to go to this hot, new class. Even if you're lying and end up only taking them to the regular toning class, still, get 'em up and out the door somehow.

Begin to casually mention all the hot bods (of the opposite sex) you're seeing at the gym lately. Ooh and ahh over some of the abs, pecs and biceps you saw that day. Stare off dreamily into space as you do this, and if you know how to do it without looking like a complete fool, let your mouth hang open a bit the way you would when you're craving a steak or something sweet.

Dress up sexy-like and announce that you're studying to be a personal trainer, and he/she's gonna be your guinea pig.
Now, you really have to pour the sexy on for this to make them bite. Hot short shorts and a tight tank top should do it. Men, just go shirtless and be sure to flex a lot while training sweetie pie so she'll look forward to the next session! Girls, you know what to do! ;)

Okay. That's enough with these tactics for now. Try them, and if they don't work, I'll introduce you to the BIG GUNS. Those are fool proof! In the meantime, let's work on getting honey cakes up off the couch!

Encourage, lead by example, poke and prod, and when all else fails, I like ranting and raving, too...

LOL! I like the idea of dressing up sexy-like and announcing about the plan to be a personal trainer.

What fun ways to egg someone to get up and work out. I'm guilty of raving about the hot bods I saw at the gym to my hubbs. Hehehe
