Everything is going to be okay

Life, it can pack up a punch sometimes, right? You wake up with determination and before you know it the day runs you over and you’re just trying to stay on your feet.

–> You might be holding some lottery tickets that didn’t pan out.
–> You might be fighting with loved ones or friends.RTC 252
–> You might have had the best of intentions to stay positive but the day ran you over.
–> You might be struggling to find the sun through the clouds.
–> You might be dealing with sickness.
–> You might be working at the worst job ever.

You’re facing something hard right now, I know it.

But listen to me, every little thing is going to be okay. It might not all come together today, tomorrow or this week but it will all be okay.

Inhale.
Exhale.
Just breath.
It will all be okay.

What is the 21 Day Fix?

This is the #1 program I recommend to my clients because I’ve seen it work over and over again.10341677_10204668795467967_8497678671323212440_n

✔ It’s simple.
✔ It’s smart.
✔ It’s doable (for everyone)
✔ It’s tailored to you (no one size fits all meal plan)

When you start this program with me and commit you are getting:

✔ The meal plan with the containers.
✔ DVD and direct online access to your home workouts that work every single body part and incorporate both strength training and cardio.
✔ 1 entire month of a super food shake that curbs hunger, reduces cravings and tastes like dessert.
✔ One on one coaching.
✔ Online accountability from a private group that will support you along your journey.
✔ One week to learn how to shop for healthy food, prepare for the journey and learn how to meal plan.

You have nothing to lose..except some inches and you’ll gain a ton of confidence. I guarantee this program works and if it doesn’t, you’ll get your money back!

 

Your story isn’t over yet.

A year ago, I was lost.

We had been out of the Air Force for 6 months and things were still a mess. Everything about our future was uncertain. I was filled with fear and scared.

But in my heart I knew that that’s not how my story would end. In my darkest moments I clung to the hope that I had the power to change our ending.

–> I got up everyday and worked through my fears.
–> I wiped my tears and poured my heart into my business.
–> I used my story to help inspire others.
–> I showed up when it was hard and didn’t back down.
–> I never, ever gave up.

Looking back, I know that those hard times were put in my path to shape who I am today. I’ve learned more about myself, refined my vision for my life and grown into who I needed to be to make my dreams come true.

Here’s the truth: You might be going through some crazy dark moments and life might feel impossible. The burden’s you’re carrying feel so heavy and you have no idea how you’ll make it through. But that was how I felt last year too and I made it out. So will you. Keep believing, keep trusting and never lose hope. You can change your ending. Just have the faith, it all comes together when it’s supposed to.RTC

Hot Mess Monday

HOT MESS MONDAY:12190929_10208442985660363_7198101881278234260_n

That’s me today…well everyday! I should just introduce myself and say, “Hi! I’m Ashley and I’m a hot mess!” That way people can give me grace instantly. 🙈

But seriously, am I the only hot mess? Are you insane like me?

–> I’m always in a rush (today I took the wrong kid to the wrong school at the wrong time)
–> I’m always juggling a million things (and dropping the ball on a lot)
–> I usually look like a hot mess (Hello messy bun, unwashed hair and no makeup)
–> Chaos is my middle name!

Rejoice, my dear sweet hot mess homey! Chaos looks beautiful on you! 😘

Fear No Monday!

RTC

Monday has such a bad reputation. It’s the most hated day of the week. And this Monday, the first after a holiday…dreaded. No one wants to go back to work or school and face another week full of long days before another weekend.
 
Today I challenge you to flip your stance on Monday. Don’t fear Monday, embrace it. Monday is a chance to have a new start. Whatever happened last week is now behind you and there is a brand new week in front of you. Step into your routine with a smile instead of a grimace.
 
–> Change the way you look at Monday and maybe Monday won’t be so bad after all!
 
What are you doing today that is going to start your week off great?

Workout because you love yourself.

12241768_10208571128823862_4960860134917598086_n

I spent a lot of energy hating my body over the years. I would look in the mirror and see all the things I didn’t like and never see the true beauty and strength that lied under my perceived flaws.

But, hating my body didn’t serve me. It destroyed my confidence and made me feel miserable about myself. Is this you too?

I had to change my thinking and love my body in all its glory.

–> My body grew three amazing kids, it carried me miles and miles when I ran a marathon, it holds my kids close in embraces, it’s strong and doesn’t get the credit it should.

I love my body enough to take care of it and challenge it daily.

Life is too short to be at war with yourself and hate your body. Love yourself for all that you are and take care of yourself not because you have to, but because you can.

 

 

Mama Guilt: Let it Go

Dear Mom,12227019_10208468573420041_6053575443312866987_n

You carry the world on your shoulders and if that’s not enough, you pick up some heavy guilt along the way. It’s a heavy load with your own expectations to be everything to everyone. You feel guilty that you’re not good enough, not around enough, not doing enough. You want to be the perfect mama to your amazing kids.

Stop. Just stop.

It’s okay to take a moment and nurture your soul. It’s okay to want time away from your family. It’s perfectly normal to feel like you’re going insane.

Give yourself grace and let go of the mama guilt. Guilt has no space in the place of grace. Embrace rest, take care of yourself and let go of all of the feelings that don’t serve you.

You are the mama your kids need and you are enough.

Love,
A mama that’s tired of carrying around guilt

Confession: I’m a hot mess

Confession: I’m a hot mess.

Sometimes I’m a crazy lunatic in front of my kids.
Sometimes we have cereal for dinner.
Sometimes I don’t have time to shower and I wear pajamas in public.
Sometimes the laundry doesn’t get put away for awhile.
Sometimes life is hectic and homework gets forgotten.

I don’t have it all together and I’m completely okay with it.

If I had to guess, I bet you’re a hot mess too
