I’m a single mom of a 4-year-old. Before having my child, I was very active and involved in boot camps, and dancing.

“Since that my focus has shifted to working hard and being a mom. Needless to say I have been finding it hard to find a little time to take care of myself… Joining this challenge will help get me up and going again so that I can shed some weight, get some more energy, and begin taking care of myself again!” Challenge Participant
