I was blog tagged recently by “” and this tagging is actually kind of interesting.
The rules are as follow:
- Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
- Open the book to page 123.

I am tagging the following health & fitness bloggers if they haven’t already been tagged:
Looking forward to reading your answers!
