4. How do you help each other stay motivated to work out?
Having a partner to work out with holds you accountable. There are mornings I could talk myself into sleeping in and skipping a workout. But I would never want to let my work out partner (especially my husband) down, so I’m motivated to get up and do it! There has never been a time where I regretted getting up to work out rather that stay in bed.
P: Rachel points to my stomach and gives me a look ... 

5. Any healthy habits to start/end your day?
R: Drink a glass of water as soon as I wake up; and stretch/foam roll to try to prevent injuries.

P: Preparing our house for the holidays with Rachel as we host family and friends on Christmas day.
