Week In Workouts – 5 Months Postpartum

When most people lose motivation to workout in December, I am so the opposite. When I eat worse, my desire to workout intensifies. I love to eat and love to exercise. I use the two to balance each other out. It works for me. Working out also helps me relieve stress and anxiety so it’s […]
