Today I have nuts for snacking. Read more
I am starting to think doctors work WAAAY too hard at pushing pregnant women (or maybe just fat pregnant women??) to be healthy. Like they're paranoid we won't listen and do healthy things, so they have to tell all kinds of horror stories and g... Read more
No, I will still not be back to tracking every day for a while.
