300m RunI feel very lucky to have a partner in crime. Winslow and I have very similar feelings on health and fitness and it takes a major priority in our life. It’s nice to know when I want to cook a paleo dish for dinner that it’s supported by my partner. It’s nice to know if I commit to getting up and doing cardio at 5:30am twice a week that he’ll be there to encourage me, even if it’s just, literally, shoving me out of bed. It’s also nice to know he’ll ask me what I’m up to if I don’t do what I said I’d do, or if my actions don’t match my stated goals. We question each other, we support each other, we push each other, and we coach each other. It’s nice. It’s more than nice – for me, it’s essential. It’s an agreement we have on every level – to honor our relationship means to honor our health and fitness, so we have all the quality time together we can get.

I see partnerships that aren’t so positive in regards to health and fitness. Where the partners have a tacit agreement to stay unhealthy together. Where nobody questions the bad food and lack of exercise. Where in fact different and good choices are quizzed or ridiculed. It’s traumatic for those partnerships when one breaks from the agreement and decides to carve a path toward a new, healthy lifestyle. It can be easy for this rebel partner to get sucked back into the old lifestyle by pressures and emotions. Friends can do this to each other, too.

What sort of agreement do you have with the people in your life? What goal are you headed toward together?
