A Mom's Guide to Starting a New Workout Routine: Where to Start & Finding Motivation

New Year New Goals, right? How many of us say this every year? We’ve all been guilty of this on more than one occasion I’m sure, yet it’s hard to get started! I think we all start with the New Year (or even a Monday) because it’s a fresh beginning and that makes it easier to process.

Am I going to workout before I start my day or after?

Does it make more sense for me to workout at home or at a gym?
