Thursday Throwdown Link-Up

**Thursday Throwdown Link up**

I am so excited to start a link up with 2 local bloggers Alexis (Lex) and Sarah.

Starting April 7, 2016 and happening EVERY  Thursday. (This is a change starting in June 2016)

What is Throwdown Thursday?

Thursday Throwdown is an opportunity to link-up with like-minded bloggers. Hosted by Alexis, Sarah, and me — we’re all DC-area bloggers focused on healthy-living, fitness, and enjoying life!

Meet your hosts:

I am a 42 year old wife, mother of 2, women’s flag football player, weight trainer and runner who lives in the DC area. Since 2012, I have lost over 25 pounds through many avenues; My Fitness Pal, Body for Life, Herbalife, Whole 30-all of which have helped me with my fitness goals. I have kept it off through being committed to a healthier lifestyle and being active. I blog about my life, fitness, health, running, weight training, playing football and my family.
