Do what works for you. Years ago after my last child was born I took up hot yoga and Atkins. It was magic because I journeyed into a new me that was toned and 50 lbs lighter. It was a joy to get dressed.
Fast forward through a few major life changes and a body that is 15 years older add in the fact that what worked then doesn’t work now. Wouldn’t it be nice if answers were just there waiting for us to pick up like a hat on a hook?
