  6. The Instagram F56 made me laugh until I figured that maybe it wasn't meant sarcastically. I definitely feel like I'm going to die whenever I go exercising in any way. I really like the BB as well so I might have to check this one out :) Thanks for hosting and for sharing!

  9. I love the beginning and the 56 made me laugh a bit because that's how I frequently feel on bike reads though I'm not sure if the 56 was serious or joking.
