Social Solutions For The Fitness Fanatic

Are you so fed up of turning down an invitation to go out with your family and friends because you have an early morning run or workout to do? Are you sick to death up of passing up wild nights out because you need to keep a clear head and your motivation for the next day? Well if so, look no further because you can have a social life and be successful with your fitness goals. Read on to find out how.

Meal at a restaurant
Restaurants are a great social solution for a fitness fanatic, as long as it is booked for a reasonable time. Stay away from booking later than 8.30pm as it is going to be a tight squeeze to get back home and into bed for a good night's sleep before your workout.

A real benefit of going out for a meal at a restaurant is that you can easily drive so no one with think anything of your not drinking. In fact, earn brownie points will be all your friends and volunteer to be the designated driver. This will also help you stay in control of the time it ends as well.

If it is the food choices that can affect your fitness goals that are stressing you out, then you can pick something more healthy off of the menu. Ask your server for your meat and vegetable to be steamed not fried in butter. Or, just go for the main of your choice and a bite of dessert then you won't feel like you are missing out too much.

Date night
Now there is no reason to miss date night if you are fanatical about fitness. A good way of doing this is organizing it for the evening before your rest day. Then you have nothing to get up for so you can have a drink or two of you'd like.

Or, how about taking in a movie instead? You can pick one that doesn't finish late, plus there is no pressure to drink to put you off your diet goals. The same goes for bowling a few games at the local alley or taking in some culture by seeing play.

Remember it is important to keep the romance alive in your relationship. So you should definitely not let your fitness regime be an excuse to let your date nights wane.

Of course, if you are both hardcore fitness fanatics you may want to head to the gym together. Then you are hitting two birds with one stone!

Club night
Now, club nights might pose a bit more of a problem for the fitness fanatic. Mostly because they often include alcohol and you can end up getting home in the early morning. So, if you are super committed to your fitness goals, you might want to think twice about heading to the club.

Or if you simply must go, order diet mixers in your drinks. Stay well hydrated by drinking lot of bottled water, and dance your socks off instead of working out the next day! Sometimes a girl's just gotta to have some fun right?
