Changing Up My Fitness Regime With Kayla Istines

IMG_9179

Last year I made great progress on the fitness front. I basically went from doing absolutely nothing in 2015, to running 10km races and visiting the gym 122 times for the year, according to my medical aid 🙂

After I had Alyssa, I was quite disciplined and ran at least 2 or 3 times a week but once I fell pregnant with Aidan, I never really done much exercise and I kept telling myself I would get back into it once he was born.
