This week we announced that we'd be hosting a fitness challenge with three avid BGR! followers. Our fitness challenge was inspired by these three women who shared their fitness trials and tribulations with us. They each have different lifestyles, challenges and goals, but they all realize the importance of getting healthy and fit and have committed to 2011 being the year to do just that.
During the next 12 weeks, we will share their story and their journey with you as we help guide them to a healthier lifestyle. This week we will introduce each of the ladies. We hope that their stories and journey provide you with inspiration and tips to help you get fit.

What inspired you to take the Black Girls RUN! fitness challenge?
I've been following Black Girls RUN! for some time now, and I'm inspired by the blog because Toni and Ashley make fitness seem cool and fun. I'm also inspired by women who are a lot busier than me, but still maintain their health and fitness routine.
What are three specific goals you hope to achieve?
1.) Weight Loss - 30 lbs
2.) Healthier lifestyle
3.) Better Eating Habits
What do you think will be your biggest challenge?
My biggest challenge will be fighting through being sleepy in the morning or tired in the evenings when I'm going to be working out. I'm going to have a hard time being motivated.
