Namaste

My name is Ashley and I'm 25 years old. I work in the financial industry in Chicago, Illinois. I have the sweetest pugs named Apollo and Johnny who keep my fiance and I very active! I joined Sparkpeople back in 2008 and lost some weight but then got sucked back into an unhealthy college lifestyle. Now I'm back to learn healthy life habits.

My approach is to make small little changes, slowly and one-at-a-time so I don't falter. So I give myself weekly, monthly and yearly goals. ...

My approach is to make small little changes, slowly and one-at-a-time so I don't falter. So I give myself weekly, monthly and yearly goals. Everytime I complete one I end up gaining more momentum so then I build more goals on top of one another. This has really been working for me so far.

Hi! emoticon I have a question regarding the green goddess smoothie. Does it taste like guacamole? That is the only way I've ever eaten avocado. Curious but afraid to try the green goddess, but I really do adore guacamole. emoticon
