My Goals:
To lose 50 lbs. and enjoy my 35th b/day in March a lighter, happier, better Ashley.

My Program:
Running 3x a week.
Weight train in my bodypump class twice a week.
Add in little daily activities/exercises to burn extra calories.

I'm reading Gillian McKeith's program and it just might be the right program for me.

Personal Information:
I'm a vegetarian, an Artist and a mom. I've always been overweight and I have no idea what skinny feels like. I'm sick of being comforted by food alone. I need to find out what else is going on inside. Should be an interesting journey!

Other Information:
I read lots of stuff by Sunny (juicy stuff!), Laurel K. Hamilton, Jodi Piccoult, Elizabeth Berg, Stephenie Meyer and Jennifer Weiner,

Hey! I saw your huddle and just wanted to tell you to hang in there. We all have rough spots in these journeys, and you're still just getting started and learning new habits. If you're feeling overwhelmed, just focus on one or two new things at a time. Spend a week or two making sure you drink your water, or getting 3 days of exercise a week. Even 10-15 minutes if that is more than what you were doing before. If you feel like you've "slipped" don't let it get you down. Everyone goes through that. You don't have to be perfect at this. Just a little bit at a time will get you there faster than nothing at all. So keep your chin up and remind yourself of what you've done right (including deciding to make this change at all!). You can do it!!!!!!!
