We all need to be a little empowered. Maybe not this much, but...I'm a little afraid of that penguin.

My name is Ashley, and I'm chronically fluffy. And I realize that the life I want to live is only as far as my commitment to achieving it is. So, I'm recommitting. Again.

Because commitment is a daily exercise, as much as brushing your teeth. And if I say "yes" more often than I've said "no," nothing is going to stop me.

Come along with me, if you want. I check everyone's blog, even if I don't comment and I read your statuses.

Member Since: 5/12/2009

Fitness Minutes: 21,061

My Goals:
"I just started working out. I used to be pretty strong, but now I'm really weak. People are excited for me. "You're going to lose so much weight!" SCREW WEIGHT LOSS! I want to be able to BENCHPRESS A BEAR! "
(a picture)

That pretty much sums it up.

My Program:
I'm buying into the hype and giving P90X a go! So what does that mean?

Fitness: 60ish mins a day of weight training, cardio, yoga, or kenpoish things.

Nutrition: Right now, I'm eating in more often and doing as low-carb as possible (I lurve me some carbs, so I can't go normal people low-carb). Moving to less low-carb in April.

Personal Information:
I'm 27 years old, happily married. I'm also a graduate student, trying to balance researching, teaching, going to conferences, being a wife, staying in shape and staying sane. It's a difficult task.

Other Information:
I'm a big fan of Psych, Monk, How I Met Your Mother, Torchwood and Doctor Who.

I love animals, although current financial situation is prohibitive.

I read for fun.

Sparkpeople is my "slack time" so I'd love to talk to anyone!

    Hey Ashley, remember me gorgeous? I know I know I went MIA and disappeared off the face of Spark. Have had so much going on, but I swear my journey is still ongoing, I've just expanded it a bit so that I can help others as I work on me. If you are on Facebook I'd love to reconnect with you (I barely get on spark anymore), you can find me on facebook at Hope to hear from you,

    Just Because...

    Today is not a holiday
    It isn't even your birthday
    But I still thought I'd like to send
    A special message to my friend

    You make me laugh and make me smile
    You ease my troubles for a while
    When clouds are thick and skies are gray
    You put some sunshine in my day

    You're really thoughtful sweet and kind
    A friend like you is hard to find
    I know I've told you once or twice
    That I think you are very nice

    But someone who's as great as you
    Should be told more often than I do
    And so I send these words with love
    Why did I send them?.....just because
    You have brought so much joy into my life....
    I am Blessed to call you friend!
    Love, Teresa

    Thank you for you: for who you are,
    However far away;
    And for the words you send to me,
    Always happy for what you say.
    Knowing simply that you're there,
    Yet thinking much of me,
    Opens up my happiness,
    For all the world to see.
    ✹•* *•.¸✹•* *•.¸✹
    I am so Blessed by your presence in my life!
    Hugs, Teresa
