mrsknitfit While out walking tonight I reminded my husband of the walks we use to take that would about do is in. Exercise was not something we put first our found enjoyable. We ate out all the time and hit up wineries almost every weekend.

Fast forward to today... We make fitness a priority! We cook most of our dinners at home. When we do eat out we make sure it is something we will truly enjoy and that is local and fresh. We still love our wine, we just done consume it in mass quantities!
Together we have lost 111 pounds (38 for me and 63 for him) all by slowly making changes in our everyday routine. We didn't overhaul our lives over night because we knew we would give up. We support each other and hold each other accountable.
The key is to take it one day at a time. Make small changes because those small changes add up. Realize that it will take time and have patience. Celebrate the small non-scale victories. And most importantly don't give up! It won't be easy but it is worth it!

mrsknitfit Got my ass handed to me in Max 30 tonight and then my hubby convinced me to go on a walk because there weather was perfect!! How could I turn that down?? Work had me irritated today so this was the perfect way to blow off steam!! It was a win win!! I listened to the @shawnmodel podcast today on HIIT training and he shed a lot of light on WHY programs like Insanity Max 30 And Focus T25 work! I am so happy I decided to break out of my workout rut and try something new. I never thought I would FALL in love with working out but there is NO turning back now! It has changed my life for the better. 3w

mrsknitfit No matter what we are doing it is always better with YOU by my side! Spent today indulging in our favorite cheat meal and then made it up by grocery shopping for only fruits and veggies for the upcoming week! Might not be the perfect way for some people to spend Valentine's Day, but I honestly wouldn't of had it any other way! Thanks @big_poot for making life an adventure! 1mon

mrsknitfit I came across this picture the other day of my husband and I and was amazed by how much our lives have changed.
The couple on the left did not exercise. We paid for a gym membership, throwing away almost $50 a month and never went!! We spent our weekends eating out, sucking down sodas, and consuming mass amounts of wine.
The couple on the right still enjoys a night out on the town and yes that does include wine! Now we just do it in moderation. We focus on eating clean and getting 5-6, 30 minute workouts in at home, and drinking Shakeology daily! No magic pills...just a conscious effort to take the reigns of our own health.
Honestly, I think we both can say that we are in the best shape of our lives and living it to its fullest!
