Wellness Update 4.3.19

Hey Ya'll! I promise this won't be a novel like last week! Haha! But, seriously- I have had a very interesting week learning to adjust to this new routine, and every day I learn a little bit more about myself, about letting go, about how strong I already am, and about little by little progress.

The Spiritual Implications of Changing My Workout Routine

Welcome to a stream of consciousness post where I process and share at the same time. So, that title is kinda tongue in cheek, but also kinda not. It's clearly no secret that i have really struggled to reach my fitness/ fat loss goals the past four years since my sweet Baby Duck was born, [...]
