Hi Everyone, and Happy Monday to you! I hope you had a wonderful Monday. I love Mondays I feel so productive. Unlike the rest of the country, Mondays fill me with a new energy I can’t describe. I feel like I can take over the world!
This weekend I had the opportunity to go to the Arcadia Invitational. It has been a couple of years since I went. For all of you who don’t know what the Arcadia Invitational is, it is one of the biggest high school track and field meets in the country. Teenagers from all over the country come to show off their speed, and battle for the fastest times in the country. Needless to say, I felt right at home.
Did you know reliving the glory days is another way to increase your overall wellness? Whether it is being a spectator at a cherished event, or listening to a song from your childhood, reliving the glory days can instantly put you in a good mood. I was recently feeling down about somethings in my life, and I began to play John Legend’s first album in my car. I turned it all the way up, and just rocked out! While singing to the top of my lungs I almost felt tears come to my eyes because I was just filled with happiness about where I have come from, and where I am now going.
Want to improve you overall wellness today? Try to recreate a precious moment in your life. Don’t overthink it, just live in that moment with no worries. I promise you will feel better after. I hope this encourages someone, and I hope you take this all through your week.
Live. Love. Well & Fit.
Hi everyone and Happy Monday to you all! I hope you all had a great weekend. For me this weekend was filled with fun and family. I love family, and I was happy to see everyone’s face as we just spent some good ole quality time together. Although I am a bit tired now, it was well worth it.
Tonight I want to talk to you about doing it your own way. I have been having some challenges at work finding my flow. I am blessed by the opportunity of doing what I do, but I know I can be doing more to help more people. The only peace I truly get is when I get to work on my own projects. They keep me going. Everyone that knows me knows that I want to get out and help people live healthier lives, but sometimes I can feel restricted with the position I am in. I talked about it with my husband, and he reminded me that I have to do things my way. I have to incorporate my own flavor in my day to day.
Have you ever felt this way? You want to do more, but are sometimes limited by your environment? It can be a bit of a sticky situation because I am thankful for where I am, and how far I have come, but I know God has more for me. To live on my own terms. Controlling my own time.
It is very relateable to health and fitness. Nobody’s way is going to work but yours. How you go about situations or tackle a challenge is all up to you. You may have guidance, but in the end it is what you decide to you. No one is responsible for your health but you! So I want to encourage you today to do it your way. Find a physical activity that you love and rock it! Set goals, realistic goals, start, and keep going. I believe in you. We truly are what we constantly think. You mind is powerful! Your body is powerful! You are amazing, and you can live the life God intended for you. You can have the body, health, and mental stability that you want. You just have to find what works for you, and do it your way.
Be well you guys.
Live. Love. Well & Fit.
Hi everyone, and happy Monday to you! This morning I was listening to my morning motivation as I always do, and I couldn’t help but think of the quote of how your life could be totally different in 6 months if you just take the time to work hard and stay committed. I am not sure that is exactly how it goes, but I think I am close. Then I starting to think, what if I began to do this? Not procrastinate. Not doubt, but just do 6 months of action. I have been telling my husband that I have been having this itch to leave my mark. To work for myself, and to just go for it!
Now I know I have other obligations and responsibilities to consider, but I want to make this commitment to myself. Hard work and dedication for 6 months and see how my life changes. My specific goals are to eat healthier; especially at lunch, exercise 4 to 5 days a week for at least 30 minutes or more, finish writing my book, and continually gain more client’s and grow my own business.
Have you ever felt this way? Like a shift or change is needed in your life, and you have finally found the path you want to lead? I am here to tell you it can be done. Won’t you join me? 6 months of steady hard work. The type of work that will prepare you for the life you want ahead. Whether you want to pray more, eat healthier, exercise more, be a better parent, or any number of things you want to do, YOU CAN DO IT! I would love to hear from those of you who want to make the commitment with me. I’ll ask you again… WON’T YOU JOIN ME?
Be well you guys.
Live. Love. Well & Fit.
Hi Everyone and HAPPY FRI-YAY to all of you! Quick question… what do you do when you fall off your exercise regiment? Do you get right back on it? Do you wait till next week to get back on track? Do you give up altogether? I wanna know.
Over the years I have witness people who are extremely motivated and ready to start a workout plan on Monday. They have their gym clothes in hand and shoes in their bag ready to sprint to the nearest gym after a long day of work. I have also witness the same people struggling to even decide to exercise on Wednesday or Thursday. Their spark has went away, and they are just trying survive the rest of the week let alone exercise. Then in true pattern form they drag themselves to the gym on Saturday out of guilt of not working out since Wednesday, maybe even Monday. What is this lack of dedication? How do you get back on track?
For myself I feel some sort of way when I do not engage in some sort of physical activity 3 consecutive days. I feel out of balance. Like something is missing in my life. The motivation for me would be making myself feel better, but that is not always the case with everyone else. I feel like there is a need for one on one attention to help people with their health and fitness goals. Maybe not everyday, but definitely mid week or so to help them over the hump. Someone to give them the little push that they need. I understand believe me. Life gets hard and hetic, but I am tired of people making excuses as to why they cannot dedicate some time to work on their health.
I have heard it all. Work, kids, time, lack of motivation, etc, etc, but we spend more time on social media waisting our time than improving ourselves. I don’t mean to come off as “Debbie Downer”, but I challenge you today to make a change for the better. Maybe you are just starting out, or maybe you have fallen off your workout schedule. Whatever the case may be I am here to let you know that it is ok. Don’t wait till Motivational Monday, start first thing tomorrow. Yes! On a Saturday. Make a commitment to exercise at least 30 minutes for 3 or 4 days this week. I am here cheering you on! I want the best for you!… and I know you can do it! It is never to late to get back on the horse!
Be well you guys.
Live. Love. Well & Fit.

I’m back!!!… Hello out there and HAPPY TUESDAY TO YOU! Why such a long break?… I just haven’t felt inspired to write. I stopped writing for my blog in July of 2018 and haven’t really logged on since. I’ve been in a season of waiting. I was trying to figure out something to write, and I just didn’t know what I wanted to say… frustrating right?
Although in what some call a “rut” I was (and still am) growing. More than ever I am exercising more regularly, eating better, and definitely taking care of my mental health. I’ve began a new project, and working to transition my career. To add the cherry on top, I just got back from a trip to Jamaica! With all this going on, I still felt some way about writing. I asked myself… what can I do?
I know when life is just not making sense or I feel like I can’t handle it all, I RUN. I run because number one, I am a runner at heart. Number two, it just allows me to be me, and number three, sometimes it is the only thing that makes sense. I can control it. I have fun with it, and of course it is making me healthier. This type of self care never gets old!!!
What is it that you do to make sense of it all. Is it something physical? Is it sitting in silence? I don’t quite know, but running makes my mind, body, and spirit stronger. I feel more centered. More like Dominique.
The older I get the more I realize how important my health is to me, so I encourage you today to find something that just helps you make sense of it all. Find something to promotes you living a healthier life. That makes you come alive. Something that you can do on your own terms.
I am Dominique Michele, and running is my first love.
Be well you guys!
Live. Love Well & Fit.
P.S. Jamaica was AMAZING!
So I took a week off preparing for Fitness Night Out, but I am back with the dimensions of wellness. This week we are on emotional health. This dimension is all about being able to express your emotions appropriately, and controlling them when they are shall I say… not so appropriate. It also involves love, trust, sadness, self esteem and many other emotions. Like I always tell my clients if you are more aware that something is going on (good or bad) emotionally, the better you will be able to respond to various situations and also give friends and family fore warning. So let’s improve our emotional health this week. No matter what comes your way this week respond don’t react in every situation.

Sometimes the best social interactions can come in the form of a workout buddy or from group exercise. You forget your exercising and enjoy the time together. Statistically you are more likely to reach your fitness goals with the added support. Sounds like a win win to me!

What are your thoughts of practicing daily meditation? I believe it is an affective way to connect with your spirit man is to set aside at least 10 minutes a day in silence. I usually choose when the kids are sleep. Make it a time to reflect. You may find yourself drifting to sleep or you may end up hearing or speaking with God. Try it out tonight or in the morning. Continue to work on your spiritual man all this week. You got this!

A great tool I used to connect and work on my spiritual health is to practice gratitude. Increasing your level of gratitude feels you with an enormous amount of thankfulness that will help you appreciate life. I try to practice it daily, not to mention it is my top character strength. I challenge you tomorrow morning before you get out of bed to say one thing you are grateful for and then start your day. I hope it helps you! Be well. 🌿💖💪🏽#dimensionsofwellness #spiritualhealth #livelovewellandfit #bossupforhealth #iamwellandfit #tuesday #fitmom #fitness #health #exercise #wellness #wellandfitcoaching
