One of the items that my wife and I have talked about a lot is our diet and fitness. These are items we talk about because early in our marriage, about a half year into it, my wife expressed about how drastically I had changed. All of that change was from a poor diet. Some people will say this is our vanity, I would say it is taking care of yourself. When I was in the Navy, one of my fellow sailors had a saying that unfortunately is hard to disprove. "Being healthy is dying at the slowest rate possible." After I got out of the Navy and didn't have to exercise by force, I kind of took this saying to heart. When my wife got over here, she had trouble identifying me because of how much weight I put on.
While we both work at the fitness, the bigger part of how we feel is our diet. My wife spends a lot of time planning and cooking the meals. We are pretty sure that it saves money, but the bigger benefit is that we limit how much of the junk we eat. This is beneficial because it really helps out with not having to go to the gym as much. While my disposition is such that I could easily see myself in a very round pear shape, I am only a mild pear shape despite not going to the gym as often as I would like. Also she likes that the meals that she is giving me is helping out with our overall health.
A side note is that I tend to agree with my wife that if I don't care about myself and how I look, and vice versa, then what is that saying a lot about how I feel for her. We both work hard to be good partners for each other, and that includes every day decisions.
In the long run we both agree that a healthy diet is best for the both of us and for the two of us to have a long happy relationship. Hard times will come and hard times will go, but we look out for each other and plan to for a long time.
PS, wish we had that nice of oven in the second picture.
