So I have a semi rant and wanted you all to weigh in..
Since being promoted, Mister has been assigned to a new station. This station is very group oriented in which they workout together on their shift. They are into crossfit and have pretty much punked Mister into joining them even when he tries to avoid them. He has even gone as far as early am workouts before work with the other officers on his crew to “bond”.
Welp.. Mister has always asked me to help him when it comes to working out… when it is the 2 of us.. yeah I’m the fitness junkie and he.. the gamer.. It’s a necessary evil to him and when he does it he feels great but the moment he falls off.. you know the end to that story..
In the past, we have gotten into some really nasty arguments when he has asked me to be his accountability partner. It would go from motivation real quick to him snapping at me if I asked “how did your workout go” so to save
him from a slow death our relationship, I vowed I wouldn’t be involved with him on that front. I will cook healthy but your workout you are on your own.
Welp.. let’s fast forward.. last week we were chatting and he says..
“Dear… I think we should do Insanity together.. you know first thing in the am when I’m not heading in to play with the guys…”
STOP the presses.. Do what? When? WOW
I quickly reminded him of the vow I had taken.. I will not workout with you.. nope no sir.. I reminded him of the last time he almost didn’t see his birthday because of the tone he took with me for asking him how did his workout go. He apologized and even said I let him off easy.. *really dude*.. but he is focused now and he knows that I need a little push and feels like we both could really motivate each other..
We’ve been down this road several times already.. I don’t think I want to go down it again.. Do you think it’s different because HE initiated it this time? Or should I stick to my guns & tell him to kick rocks! LOL
Weigh in please.. Thanks in advance!
