Well, here comes the New Year!
It’s a great time to reflect on the blessings, struggles and lessons from the past year and start planning for an awesome next 365 days and beyond. I’d love to hear what goals you have in mind for 2011, so please share those in the comments below!
If you were around a year ago, you’ll remember the incredibly fun and successful Improve Yourself! 2010 event that we held here. Everything from that series of posts is still relevant (other than the giveaways!) if you’d like to check them out to help with your goal planning.
I’ve had a few folks ask me if there will be a similar challenge as we enter 2011. Well, I thought about it, but decided to do something different this year. I want to do something that is more specific, practical and impactful.
While I plan to continue to tackle all the big issues impacting marriage here on the blog and in my new e-book 15 Minute Marriage Makeover (coming out soon), I’ve had a particularly strong interest in helping couples and individuals improve their fitness (and their relationships) lately. That’s why Fit Marriage was created with my friend Tony DiLorenzo, and the early growth and popularity of our site makes it clear that we are addressing a real need!
However, I also recognize that many of the readers here at Engaged Marriage may have no interest in fitness-related content or help. So…the “Big Thing” to kick off 2011 will be taking place over at Fit Marriage, and I’ll try to refrain from talking about it much here.
Actually, there are two “big things” and one of them will start before the New Year even arrives!
I can’t actually disclose the first event (for reasons that will be evident when it is released), but if you are looking to improve your health and fitness in a way that enhances your family life rather than competing with it, you’ll love this.
The second event is something I am very proud to have pulled off (with Tony obviously). It’s a series of video interviews with 12 of the top experts in the world on fitness, nutrition and motivation for busy individuals and couples. It is seriously helpful and inspiring. The best part is we are able to offer access to the full program (called the Quick Fit Formula) for FREE for a limited time when it opens up for registration. It’s not open just yet, but it will be shortly after the New Year.
It’s easy. You just need to get signed up for the Fit Marriage newsletter. Click that link and enter your name and email, and you’ll be all set. And if you don’t like anything we send you, you can “unsubscribe” with a single click…no worries.
The only way anyone will know about Big Thing #1 is through the Fit Marriage newsletter since that’s the only way we’re announcing it. And Big Thing #2 will be opened up first to our newsletter audience. It’s our way of saying “thanks” for being an active part of the Fit Marriage community and allowing us to share our content with you via email every week or two.
So, if you are looking to reach some new fitness goals as we enter 2011, or you just want to improve your marriage by living an active, thriving lifestyle with your family, we are doing our part to help you.
If this interests you, please go get signed up for the Fit Marriage newsletter before you miss Big Thing #1. 🙂
And please share your goals for 2011, fitness and otherwise, below!
Dustin Riechmann created Engaged Marriage to help other married couples live a life they love (especially) when they feel too busy to make it happen. He has many passions, including sharing ways to enjoy an awesome marriage in 15 minutes a day, but his heart belongs with his wife Bethany and their three young kids.
