IMG_4687Happy Friday, friends!! With the weekend finally upon us, I thought I’d share some of my healthy date alternatives for you to explore this weekend.

It’s no secret that Mark and I have been trying to focus on our health a little more these days. It’s not just about getting in shape, it’s also about keeping our marriage alive and healthy, which means carving out more time for each other. After adding a little one to the mix, it’s easy to spend every single minute as a party of three. So we’ve been making an effort to schedule babysitters or line up the grandparents to watch Kaylee once a week.

But how do you make it work when you want to explore the local farmers market and drink green juice and he wants to drink beer and try that new burger joint?

Well, with all things in marriage: compromise is key. But if you’re looking for some healthier date alternatives, I’ve got you covered.

WALK there // If the hubby wins and we’re going out to eat, I like to choose a restaurant that is walking distance from home. Whether it’s a day date or a fancier evening affair, taking a long stroll to get there is a great way to extend our time together and sneak in a little exercise. Walking also helps with digestion on the way home 😉

DO something // Instead of sitting around at yet ANOTHER restaurant, talk your partner into an active day date. It could be a day of paddle boarding, ocean kayaking, a long hike, or a little bike ride. Even a long sunset walk is a great way to connect. It doesn’t get much more romantic than that.

GO somewhere // Our favorite thing to do if we have a full day is to go on a mini adventure. We pick a town that is 30 minutes to an hour or more away and just explore. It always feels good to just get away, even if it’s not overnight. We walk around, try the local coffee shop, check out their downtown and sometimes do a little shopping if I’m extra lucky.

What are some of your favorite “healthy” date ideas? Please share!

xo, Jenn

I share more of my healthy living tips and tricks on Facebook and Instagram. I’d love for you to follow along on my health and fitness journey on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM.

  17. It may be old news, but it is important news. Too many people believe what is written in the newspapers as if it were written in stone and being carried down from the mount. The mainstream media also choose very carefully who gets to have their say on current issues…Case in point; I belong to a political party in South Australia and am actually running as a candidate in the House of Assembly. Not just me but pretty much anyone from our party is ignored by the Advertiser and AdelaideNow. This is also despite the fact that I have tried to gain some form of response from our Premier and A-G regarding the A-G hiding behind privilege and slandering several people. He is quite well known for this. Why is a legitimate political party with a large membership ignored by the main (only) newspaper in the lead up to an election? We don’t have any clout, yet, we are victims of the governments spin. The sooner we have an ICAC in this state and the closeness of some government departments and some private businesses are investigated the better off and better informed our population will be.
