Recently I was going through boxes of old pictures. I use the plural boxes here because when I started out my married and family life, digital cameras really weren’t a thing. Also not available, was high speed internet. That old fashioned dial-up noise is still a thing of my nightmares.
Anyways, back to the boxes of pictures, there was not a single picture of me in my “grandness” as a pregnant lady. Perhaps it is best for posterity that this was not recorded. The only picture of my pregnant self I could find was this one and I was about 3 months pregnant at a signing I attended for my book.
Being pregnant and then the ensuing motherhood, does a number on your body. Recently, I was introduced to a new book by Jillian Michaels that made me wish I could have done things way different for my pregnant and new mother self, and so since I am a blogger with a platform that can hopefully reach a few people, I wanted to share it here with all of you!
