‘I think I have found my groove’

The moment 2018 arrived, everything fell into place! Prior to the Suwanee Get Fit challenge I just couldn’t find the time to workout…or so I thought. All of my energy was exhausted playing super Mom to my two kids (ages 2 years old and 8 months), being a wife and managing my household. I could
