My name is Ashley, I'm a stay at home mom of 4 beautiful children ages 5 and under who keep me super busy. For years I've put everyone before myself (I think a lot of mom's are guilty of this) but I finally realized that in order to be the best wife and mother I can be I need to take care of myself and make myself a priority too!

**UPDATE** On November 13th 2011 we welcomed the newest member to our family, a sweet baby girl. I gained way more than I wanted to with the pregnancy and now have about 30-35 pound to lose to be to a point where I feel comfortable again. I am exclusively breastfeeding so I know the weight is going to come off slower (never just melts off for me when I am nursing)
I am hoping by the time we are celebrating our baby girls first birthday I will also be celebrating reaching my goal weight :)

I'm starting off with the 30 day shred which I will begin on 1/16/12. I'm hoping by the time the 30 days are up I will feel comfortable leaving my baby for an hour or two while I go to the gym :)

I am so exited to be back and SO ready to do this again!

Fewer calories, portion control, increased water intake, cardio and strength training. Clean eating. No processed food, sugar, gluten or dairy.
