OK, folks got a question for ya. My wife, who just had our first child (YAAAY!) a few weeks ago is talking about needing to get back into shape. I desperately want to help her. The problem is the dreaded proximity bias- whenever we worked out together before, she would get very upset at me when I would try to correct her form, or when I was trying to get her to do things (like pullups) because she would get so discouraged that she could barely do one. I know it would be like that all over again if I tried this time around.
Her diet is also a debacle. I’m pretty sure she knows what she’s supposed to eat (just eat what I do, honey), but would rather eat some processed carb-in-a-box like Rice-A-Roni than vegetables with our steak and chicken because “it tastes better”
I recognize that only SHE can make these decisions, and I’m far from someone who is going to sit and monitor every thing that goes in her mouth, and get upset when she doesn’t work out. I only want to HELP, because I know she is down in the dumps about how she looks. Other than printing out all things T-Vixen related, and offering support, what else can I do? I’m actually contemplating (shudder) finding a personal trainer for her to teach her how to do a good squat or deadlift, and more importantly, explain WHY she should do those. I wouldn’t have the slightest idea where to try to find someone like that though. Anyone have any ideas about any of this? Thanks so much in advance for your help!
