It's hard to believe that 2014 is right around the corner! I'm excited about 2014 for so many reasons, but I think the start of the New Year makes turning 30 in October a reality! I am by no means scared of getting older, but it makes each moment that much more precious. I seem to care more about my daily habits, what habits might need to changed, and how those habits affect my . . . Continue Reading »

What Are My Real Goals?

Ashley

A few months ago when I walked into Rebecca Scritchfield's office, the first thing she asked me was what my goals were.  I hesitated, thought about it for a second, and then went on to explain my goal of reaching 180lbs. I've thought about that number a lot over the past few months and go back and forth about it.  Sometimes I feel like that goal is unrealistic and unhealthy for my body s . . . Continue Reading »

Lorrie's passing really shook me.  It is the first time someone around my age has passed away from a health r . . . Continue Reading »

February 2013 Goals

February 2013 Goals

Last night while on Facebook I came across a photo of a person I knew back in college.  I was rather taken aback when I first saw the photo because the person looked so different from when I last saw them. Back in college I idolized this person because they had lost 70+ pounds on Weight Watchers and maintained that weight loss for years.  The photo yesterday made me cry because they had gained b . . .
