Workouts Lately

Workouts Lately

Workouts have gone through many phases since welcoming Jacob… the phase of not caring about it & just focusing on new motherhood, the phase of getting back to the gym & slowly figuring out what felt right, the phase of 4:30am workouts when I went 

Perfectionism

Perfectionism

Are you a perfectionist? I have been one for years…. and no, that’s not a brag. It has been one of my greatest struggles throughout my life. I can remember crying at the kitchen table in the third grade because I couldn’t get my cursive

Jacob’s 1st Birthday Party

Sick Baby & COVID Times
