Let’s talk accountability partners.
Studies show who you surround yourself with affects your lifestyle choices more than you know.
According to a recent large-scale study having a friend who is obese increases your risk of obesity by 57% and having a spouse who is obese increases your risk by 37%.
Why? Habits rub off on each other. It’s much easier to skip a workout when you want to spend time at home with a loved one or order the pizza regularly if someone else is always asking.
Ensuring you have a circle of people next to you who are a positive influence is KEY.
I enjoy working out and eating healthy, it makes me feel good.
Do I have a treat once in a while? Absolutely.
Recently my wife and I decided we were going to cut alcohol for a month. She mentioned she was going to do it so I jumped on board. Don’t get me wrong, we love our wine but it was becoming a habit and part of our routine to have a glass almost every night.
Because we both are doing it, it’s much easier to not be tempted to open a good bottle of wine that’s sitting in our wine cooler.

You are the average of the 5 people you hang out with the most. Choose wisely.
