The Seven Most Sinister Gym-Goers

I’m working on a substantial post that involves quite a bit of math, so while I’m putting that together, here’s a little fluff post about a topic that’s much on my mind because, well, I’m confronted with it often.

The gym is a hot mess, literally and figuratively. Continue reading

For the Pregos out there – Celebrity Edition

Apparently, maternity yoga is the royal answer to keeping pregnancy weight at bay (not that Kate Middleton had to worry much about pregnancy weight gain, considering she was a stick figure to begin with).
