Have you been calling every restaurant in town, trying to make a reservation to take advantage of the fact that you actually have a babysitter on Valentine's Day?
Instead of going out to a fancy meal, accompanied by diving into a calorie-filled box of chocolate and an expensive bottle of wine, consider working up a sweat together this Valentine's Day.
Are you grimacing? Perhaps you don't think that fitness and dating go hand in hand. You view working out as something you do by yourself or next to a fellow gym goer you've never met. And going on a date should be something, er, a bit more romantic, that doesn't involve perspiration.
Think again. Dating doesn't have to just be eating out or sitting in a movie theater. The time you spend exercising together can become your "date night." And the good company will make it more fun to venture out, even on the coldest of February days.
Don't have a sitter? No problem—you can still find ways to exercise with the kids or at home. Flying solo this Valentine' Day? Don't pout—a friend makes a fine substitute.
Here are a few fitness-based activities you can do with your sweetie that will get the endorphins racing, not to mention make you hot and sweaty for each other:
After you work up a sweat, continue bonding as you whip up a nutritious and delicious meal together. Looking for healthy and easy recipes? We have quick meals, simple appetizers and delicious desserts that you'll love. Check out our recipes now.
