New Year, New You

The truth: I’ve been feeling pretty “blah” these days.

I know a good portion of these feelings stem from being super pregnant and getting closer and closer to my due date, but it could also be a result of me taking a backseat from taking proper care of myself this past year.

Well the new year is approaching and I think that’s a good time as any to make some changes for a better me!
