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!
