Whilst in Orlando, we decided to intentionally find a healthier restaurant. This restaurant isn’t native to Florida, in fact, it’s everywhere and from our meals comes highly recommended! . First Watch Cafe is a chain for health-minded breakfast, brunch & lunch options. . #healthminded #healthyfood #healthyfoodchoices #healthychoices #healthconscious #chooselife #choosegoodfood #cafe #floridabrunch #breakfast #floridacafe #coupledates #travelingcouples #inlove #love #couplesthateattogetherstaytogether #couplesthattraveltogetherstaytogether #firstwatchcafe #orlando #florida

Most of us have believed that we have to change our outside... for some, health conditions means we REALLY need to change our outsides BUT, that can’t happen unless you focus on your inside. . . We’re talking your mental health, your diet, your exercise, your emotional health, spiritual health, your self esteem, your confidence, your peace... once you make these changes, your lifestyle will follow and your outside will SHINE just how you were supposed to shine! #morningmotivation 💪 #motivate #motivation #mentalhealth #emotionalhealthawareness #emotionalhealth #healthylifestyle #healthyfood #healthychoiches #healthybody #fitcouples #couplesgoals #couples #bestfriends #insideout #takecare #love #loveyourself #loveyourlife #findpeacewithin #findpeaceofmind #imhereforyou #youareimportant

We’ve seen ill, and newsflash it’s not fun!, Mel has been sick. I’ve seen her wake up crying because of the pain being so unbearable. I’ve seen her power through a day of teaching because of her dedication to those kids, come home and crash. Pop all kinds of meds the doctors recommend. Try this and try that.. do this and do that... ENOUGH! . . What’s my point? Now that health and wellness has been reassigned as priority in both of our lives, I’ve noticed a change in her flare ups.. her happiness and her productivity. . . Focus on you! You deserve to be healthy and happy! . . #humpday #humpdaymotivation #wednesdaywisdom #wednesdaymotivation #lupus #lupusawarenessmonth #fibromyalgia #fibromyalgiaawareness #choosehealthy #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #lifestyles #couplesgoals #fitcouples #fitcouplesrock #bestfriends

You know what you should do, how to do it, but just don’t have the motivation to do it and do It consistently. . . Been there, done that! . We’ve had this conversation at least three times this week, so we felt the need to share... DO WHATS BEST FOR YOU! What’s best for your momma, your best friend or the IG fitness model is not always what’s best for you. We find joy in different things... I find joy in dance fitness and soccer- he finds joy in basketball and boxing. I can eat vegetables raw and snack on fruits all day, I’d have to tie him down just to eat some fruit! I say this to say, WE’RE ALL DIFFERENT, do what works for you and journal your process and progress. . . You future self will thank you! . #fitnessmotivation #fitness #fitnesscouples #humpday #wednesdaywisdom #wednesdayworkouts #happy #healthy #needenergynow #sport24 #rebuidstrength #strength #mayhemfitness

Tea Lovers, “This one’s for you” (in our best LeBron voice ) . . If you’re anything like us, sometimes natural energy is hard to find. We steer clear of energy drinks because they make us CRASH, hard! BUT, we have found success in green tea. Thinking it has something to do with the minimal sugar intake. What do you love about the Tea Bombs? . . We’re here for the Tea Bomb 🍵💣 . #teaofinstagram #teatime #naturalenergyboost #needenergy #needenergynow #energyboost #tuesdaytea #tuesdayvibes #tuesdaymorning #herbalife #herbaliferesults #healthy #happy

Swimming: An opportunity to defy gravity in the most relaxing way. . . Swimming is a great workout because you need to move your whole body against the resistance of the water. Swimming is a good all-round activity because it: keeps your heart rate up but takes some of the impact stress off your body. builds endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness . . #swimming #poolside #pooldayeveryday #poolsofinstagram #poolsidechillin #fitnessmotivation #warmweather #hellosunshine #poolifestyle #couplestyle #couplegoals #happy #healthy #wellness

Weekends. Mother Nature’s built-in- unofficial assigned time to slow down, reset and spend quality time with your loved ones. . . For some, we struggle to make it to the gym, follow our diet, or stay away from celebratory adult beverages... but the most important thing of a healthy lifestyle is a healthy mental health! . . Our advice to you, Be ACTIVE.. take a walk with the family, the pets, your music, yourself... ride your bike, do some yard-work. Be HEALTHY, drink some water, make a fruit salad, cut out soda and sugars.. and BE HAPPY... spoil your mental health! You deserve to be happy! . . #active #healthy #happy #weekendvibes #weekendmood #getactive #behealthy #behappy #fitlife #wellness #healthychoices #healthylifechoices #longlife #livelong #rva #richmond #richmondva #loveyourbody #loveyourlife #loveyourlifestyle

We all have different fitness needs and health concerns. Between the two of us- our journey to healthy has similarities but also has a lot of differences. We don’t lift the same weight, we don’t do the same length of cardio and we don’t eat the same amount of calories, we don’t even have the same goals...BUT, we serve as each other’s accountability buddy and biggest fan! . . Today, we’re happy to have another accountability buddy on our team! Sean, we hope you’re ready for us as much as we’re ready for your killer workouts, personal coaching, and amazing atmosphere! . . We are so happy to join the @mayhem_fitness_rva family!!! . . #mayhemfitness #mayhemfam #fitfam #fitnessgoals #workout #workoutroutine #personalcoaching #summerbody #athlete #loveyourbody #happy #healthy #fitness #goals #couplegoals #wellness #flattummy #rva #richmondva #richmond #virginia

Good Morning #fitfam ! . . We’re slowly finding the key to a successful and productive day. As early birds, we have to start with working out. We are filled with energy to power us through out our day! . . No matter our schedule or task for the day we like to keep our morning routine consistent. Wake Up. Drink 12 oz of room temperature water. Check our schedule, emails, texts. Convince the dogs to move so we can make the bed. Drink a tea. Go work out. Eat breakfast. Start our day! . . What part of your day you keep consistent, no matter what?! . . #goodmorning #fitfam #tgif #consistency #consistencyiskey #earlybird #workout #coaching #healthy #wellness #love #loveyourself #loveyourbody #loveyourdiet #healthyfood #healthychoices #rva #richmond

Health and Wellness is the new wave 👋🏾! . . Start with your diet. Give yourself a clean start. How?! Well... a detox of-course. . . You owe it to yourself a 21 day detox... then start over, the right way! Slowly reintroduce yourself to your diet and listen to your body! If food you used to eat doesn’t agree with your body... don’t force it, it just doesn’t work! You probably will feel much better without it, anyways. . . This is WELLNESS preparing your body for the long haul by starting with your lifestyle !! . . #lifestyle #healthyfood #healthyeating #healthysnacks #eatclean #mindyourbody #loveyourbody #love #happy #happystomach #happytummy #rva #richmondva #richmond #wellness #wellnesscoach #wellnessjourney

I was ear hustling and heard my man say, “You teeter between being big and kinda big, all of a sudden you just wake up and you’re fat”. . . I laughed, hard, out loud, but then I quickly remembered the TRUTH in his statement. We tend to put things off in our world- so much so we find ourselves digging our holes so deep the climb out doesn’t seem worth it. . . It’s worth it. You are worth it. Your health is worth it. We will be here to support you and cheer you on.

Goals are usually something NEW to your current lifestyle but fueled with passion, motivation and/or an important underlying circumstance, situation or desire. . . They aren’t supposed to be EASY the first day or even a week later... actually they hardly get “easier”... you just get BETTER and they become habits! . . You’ll be surprised how many of our short term goals, challenges, bets, etc... became lifestyle changes because of how great we felt during the process. . .

We’ve been getting a lot of questions about why do we talk about Herbalife so much. In fact in a casual conversation protein shakes, teas, weight gain, snacks, lotion, hydration comes up at least three times. #persistence Well, when you’re constantly doing something, and you’re constantly getting desirable results it just becomes a part of your life and lifestyle and you want to share and you want others to join you.

Eating Habits! I heard the other day, if you want to see change- start with one habit. We are starting with our eating habits. . . Although, neither of us eat unhealthy food or food that’s bad for you.. we weren’t eating food that was good for us. HUH!? You’re thinking... . . We didn’t necessarily have a bad diet, but we choose bad times to eat, overeating on some meals, skipping meals, going days with eating salads and then spend the next eating pizza... the consistency wasn’t there. . . On our mini journey of #veganliving we’re able to track what goes in our bodies.. and since its plant based we’re hungry to eat all three meals a day, plus three snacks! . . We’re off to a good start! . . #livingvegan #veganfood #veganlifestyle #veganlife #healthyfood #healthychoices #healthyfoodchoices #newvegan #vegans #healthyvegan #mealplanning #fitness #fitnessmotivation #friday #fridayquotes #fridaymood #motivationalquotes #motivationquotes #weeekendvibes #tgif #fridaygoals #fridayvibes #rva #richmond #richmondva #virginia #vcu #vuu
