Two weeks ago, I received clearance from my doctor to get serious about my postpartum health and exercise journey. Check out my first post here.
As many of you have read, I recommend setting goals for your wellness and fitness journey that are SMART: specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound goals (Living Wellness for Growth Groups, p. 17).
