Dump the Plump

{Please read the following in your best drill instructor voice} Ladies (both literal and figurative), the holidays are over and it’s time to get your nasty bodies off the couch, throw away those Christmas cookies and get back to your pre-holiday figure. Marines don’t make excuses and we won’t let you either. Use these pins to motivate you to get out there and run, walk, lift and swim your way to be fit to fight.
