Motivation Monday: Reassessments.

Every year is a year full of growth through various aspects. Usually, the most growth is experienced in my professional fields, and in fitness. Last year wasn’t any different.

Workout Wednesday: Still going & post baby goals.

It’s happened. Baby Rebel has decided to start dropping, and tugging my belly down along with him, so I had to do it. I had to buy a maternity band. It helps. Some. It doesn’t provide full relief, especially on my round ligaments, but it is better than nothing. The count down is on, he’s […]
