Work Out Day at Home

I had trouble motivating myself to work out once my mobile was feeling more natural, about 3 months post replacement.  Physio has signed off, I was pain free and feeling good about myself and my basic functioning.  Just enjoying my abilities to be pain free and move.

My First Night in Heels

I'm always exited for date nights.  While the bf and I spend a lot of time together (running our business from home), it's important to have quality over quantity time together.  So we always make the point to have date nights to re-centre our relationship and remember how it all started.
