The Scale Lied to Me

Woman Feet And Weight Scale Isolated On White Background

Jenn and I are always saying that you shouldn't let the scale make or break you. After all, you shouldn't let some silly number on some hunk of metal ruin your day, right? I've been following our anti-diet rules, weighing in at most once a week or so, and typically even less than that. When I …

I so wanted to be the gal who could WWP (work out while pregnant), but alas I'm one of those rare breeds of mama whose morning sickness didn't stop once the first trimester was over.
