By Saturday night, it was worse.
On Sunday, I was at a specialty baby boutique, and mommy-gut told me to buy the special suction aspirators for baby's ... Read more
Oh, right... Spark...
Motherhood is a lot of things. Namely, time-consuming.

This is what a t... Read more

BAZOOKABOBCAT recently had a great blog post about the double standard in strength training between men and women. That men who are perceived to be weak get referred to as "ladies" and when women are strong, there are frequent remarks of "strong... Read more
When I first purchased my personal training sessions almost two years ago, Brad and I had a nonexistent budget. Bills got paid on time, but credit cards racked up, our contributions to savings were few and far between.
I committed to about... Read more
