“I am #BetterBecause of you.” We’ve said this to each other a million times, because in our opinion, the hallmark of a good relationship is the question: “DO WE MAKE EACH OTHER THE BEST VERSION OF OURSELVES?” In our case, the answer is YES. On so many levels.
When George and I met, we were both about 15-20 lbs heavier. We were “into fitness,” but we also had vices and unhealthy ideas about what was acceptable for our bodies. We didn’t have a holistic appreciation for nutrition, self-care, exercise, or hydration in the way that we do now.
Together, these things became our North Star. They provide the bedrock upon which our relationship was built.
Turns out, when you’re building a family together, that’s pretty solid footing.
Since we’ve been together, we’ve: Developed an aligned POV on nutrition that we weave into our daily life in a way that’s fun, delicious, and sustainable Explored wellness routines of every variety, landing on certain practices that keep us sane, strong, & grounded (meditation, mantras, and matchas anyone??) Learned to run distance. We started with 5ks and built our way up to the NYC Marathon in 2016. Watched our bodies morph and change in exciting ways. Who knew there were abs under there?? Became a living example to our children and our followers that fitness & nutrition can be FUN!
With @NYCfitam we prove that when people share their love of healthy living, they’re automatically #BetterBecause of each other. Your vibe attracts your tribe, and sharing the gift of health is a wellness boomerang.
We are grateful to be #BetterBecause of each other, and also because Takeya helps us stay hydrated as we prepare for our each new challenge… next up? The Hamptons Half Marathon in two weeks.
Will we cross that finish line together? You better believe it.
