Happy March Madness NCAA Finals Championship Game Day!🏀🏆

From the Final Four matches this past Saturday, I had gone for Florida, who surrendered to UConn, and Kentucky, who beat Wisconsin in a close one. Let’s see who fares tonight!

In the meantime, one of my favorite fitness gurus, Sarah Fit ~ whose new book I featured on Pretty Fit to kick off 2014 ~ has posted her TMI Tag vlog and blog, answering 50 questions and tagging more of my other fave fitness gurus, including Blogilates and ToneItUp ~ who are the reasons why I started following her in the first place ~ as well as BexLife ~ who I discovered from Sarah ~ and Tara Stiles, whose yoga I got into from Livestrong Woman, which I started subscribing to for Cassey Ho (Blogilates) and K&K (TIU) videos! Anyway, here goes…
