Heart Healthy!

February is American Heart month, a perfect time to raise awareness about heart disease, the number 1 cause of death in America. We’re asking all those who read this to be active 20 mins a day.  Little steps in the right direction can keep you healthy and around to enjoy all the thing life has to offer.  There are a lot of things we cannot control in our lives but this isn’t one! Take control!

Taylor and I try to juice and eat healthy whenever possible.  We also work towards living an active life.  For Taylor, this honestly means being up and moving.  When we were at the hospital they told us walking with prosthetics burns 4times as many calories as someone walking with their own two legs.  So being up and mobile is a workout in itself. Me on the other hand, I go to a workout class Monday through Friday that kicks my butt!  We enjoy being healthy and the extra energy you get from fueling with the right foods.  But it is also extra motivation that we have a wedding coming up!  Let the workouts and healthy foods continue and bring on the beach bods :-)

Tonight we celebrated Valentines Day with two of our favorite things!


Who wants to make reservations a week in advance and spend time in an overcrowded restaurant when you can make the gift dinner in a basket!IMG_8250IMG_8256
