My name is Denise. I’m a Mom, an Accountant, & a Beachbody Coach!!  I was born in Washington, DC and raised in Arlington, VA. I have pretty much lived in Virginia all my life.

I was blessed with a beautiful little girl, Madison, in July 2009. Unfortunately, { or fortunately depending on how you look at it}, things with her father did not work out. I found myself a struggling single mom shortly after Madison’s birth.  This went on for 3 years before I started to date my current boyfriend, Jorge.

Jorge & I met at work in 2009 and became pretty good friends. Time went on, and then one day in 2012, we looked at each other and thought .. hey, why not try this dating thing? We have been happily together ever since.

Shortly after we started to date, I realized that Northern Virginia’s cost of living was so much more than Western Maryland. So that’s when I decided to pack up and move out here with Jorge and his 6 year old son. The kids hit it off and actually act like they could be twins!

When I first moved out to Maryland, I didn’t really know anyone.  I had canceled my gym membership in Virginia, but never really got around to getting another one. Within a year and a half, I gained 30 pounds! Finally, one day I realized I had to get back on track!

That’s when a friend of mine from high school reached out to me about Beachbody. I was in a couple of her challenge groups and lost a little over 10 pounds in two months. Since the programs were working for me, I decided to make money doing what I was doing anyway and became a Beachbody Coach! This has been the best & most rewarding job I have ever had! Plus, I have lost over 20 pounds and counting!!

Tranformation

Needless to say, life can get pretty hectic but I have slowly learned how to incorporate a healthier lifestyle not only for myself, but for my family too! I have been able to figure out a schedule and a PLAN that works for me even in my busiest weeks. I figured, why not start a blog to document my journey and share with everyone how I am able to do it.1426816518746

I hope you enjoy my blog! AND if you find that you need a little extra help and motivation to get you moving into the right direction with your fitness goals, please reach out to me!! My goal is to pay it forward with all the success I have had along the way. I wouldn’t be here without the motivation and support my coach gave me! Plus, I love helping others by showing them that it CAN be done! You just have to stick with it!
