Our sweet baby Will! OMG this baby!!! 4 months old and the sweetest most chill little angel ever! Guess it's a 3rd child thing b/c he needs nothing...like always. 🤣 Throw me some milk and a fresh diaper every now and then and he's good!

He is laughing and talking and rolling and doing all the things babies do, lol! His big brother and sister love him so much and I'm so thankful Bill finally gave in (to my 2 years of asking) and let us add another babe to our crew! I don't take for granted how blessed we are to have 3 healthy babies in this house! We love you buddy!!❤️ #WPM #4monthsold #babyboy #baby

Hi y’all! 👋🏻 Ashley here! In an effort to share more and get to know you all better, I’ve written out some fun (odd) facts about me! So, hereeee we go:
.
.
#1. I am the queen of “lists” I love writing things out on paper and the gratification I get from scratching an item off is unreal. 📝 Sometimes, if I forget to add an item, I’ll write it down JUST so I can immediately scratch it off. ✅ .
.
#2. I played varsity basketball in high school and I desperately wanted to be in the WNBA. 🏀 Until my dad told me point blank to my face, it’s never going to happen, you need to go to college and get a real job. 💯 😂
.
.
#3. See fact #2 - I went to school for nursing 💉and was an ICU nurse (age 22) for 10 years before leaving to pursue my photography career.
.
.
#4. I was born with an extra bone in my body and I use to be a “professional” clogger. Ok I said it 😂
.
.
#5. We are the most passionate about our health. It starts with weight loss. We change lives + offer person development and small business building. This is our true passion. ❤️🔥
.
.
#6. Bill and I can be described as “serial entrepreneurs” we build our work/businesses based on what matters most in our life…which is each other and our children.
.
.

#7. We schedule “marriage meetings” on our calendar every single week. One hour where we can discuss with one other what we’re doing right and what we’re doing to piss each other off🤣 It helps us keep each other in check so much.
.
.
#8. My mom does all of our families laundry. All. Of. It. Bless her heart. 🧺 .
.
.
#9. I’m an Enneagram 8 followed very closely as a 3/1. 😬 Dicey. Bill and I have learned for our marriage this whole enneagram thing actually does matter.
.
.
#10. I was a nurse for 10 years. That was sick care. I truly feel like I am now in the space of health care - focusing on prevention and lifestyle change so sick care is not needed. This is the first time in my life where I feel like I am actually helping people. ❤️
.
.
Ok there’s my 10 facts! Now tell me one about you! What’s your Enneagram? Have a career switch? I want to hear!! Tell me one fact about you!!! 👇🏻 #healthcoach #nurse #health #raleighweddingphotographer

The Mind + The Body = A Powerful Thing.

Transformation of body is not a hard thing to do in this country. There’s about 10000000 ways to lose weight, get fit, tone up, slim down etc.

Transformation of mind though, that’s not something we come across every day.

When I started my health journey, I believed some pretty yuck things about myself, I told myself even yuckier ones.

Losing the 70 lbs didn’t change my mindset. It didn’t fix everything. I don’t just have a perfect outlook and self confidence to boot. My marriage didn’t suddenly become perfect. The 70 lbs took hard work, the mindset took HEART work.

That’s what I love about our program. It’s not a weight loss program. It’s a vehicle to optimal health (mind, body, finances) that focuses on structuring nutrition and establishing healthy habits for life. Doing so leads to the weight loss!

The transformation of my mind, that’s what led me to pay it forward as a coach. No 21 day fix, keto venture, or juice cleanse addressed the deeper issues inside, the root causes of my habits. Our program does, and it makes the transformation sustainable.

If you’re just looking for another diet or quick fix, keep scrolling. If you’re ready to get predictable results leading to LASTING change, I’d love to share this with you. Shift your mind, shift your life. 💫

2 months of structured nutrition.

30 pounds gone in 2 months and Mama is BOUNCING BACK!

We never stopped our healthy eating habits but let’s be honest…I was pregnant and I didn’t JUST eat healthy 😜

2 months back on the program that changed my life in 2020.

I share this because I know the struggle.
I know the frustration.
I understand the mind game of settling with, “maybe this is just the size I’m meant to be.”

Resigning yourself to just being over weight is not a fun place to be.

If you’re struggling in your health or want to undue some damage quickly 🤣 reach out! Help is on the way!!! #healthcoach #stophiding #joinus #youcantoo #healthylifestyle #health #youareworthit #levelup #awakenings #healthyhabits

This is my transformation from May to November of 2020. My whole life changed when I finally found a program that worked for me.

A lot of life has happened since that picture on the right, grew a tiny human for almost a year and now he is here with us!

I’m on my way back to that girl on the right, and I can’t tell you how freeing it is to KNOW what to do this go round.

No more floundering, wondering, trying, wishing, experimenting with this or that to get my body back. I thankfully now know exactly what to do. My body IS bouncing back, all because I have the tools, knowledge, structure and accountability to get me there.

You CAN bounce back, Mamas! And you don’t have to go it alone.

I’m not where I want to be…but I’m on my way.

I’m so thankful I know what to do to get my body back post baby. No “trying this” or “trying that”, this go round.

Being a mom was one of the best reasons to focus on me.

I longed for the day to walk in my closet throw on an outfit and be completely present. Present with my children, present with my husband and present in the moment.

I am thankful with everything inside of me for Dr. A, this program and the tools to focus on my mindset.

Not only did I get to rewrite my story, I got to rewrite my children’s story.

It wasn’t easy, but my family was WORTH IT! ❤️

Let me help you! You don’t have to figure it out alone. #healthcoach #awakenings #stophiding #freedom #joinus

Let’s talk about processed foods.

Because they can get a lot of hate and become an excuse for others.

Here is the thing…not all processed foods are created equal. And neither are calories. (Calories from a french fry are far different from a calorie from grilled chicken.)

And the reality is, MOST of us didn’t get to a place of unhealth and obesity because we were eating organic whole foods we harvested from our backyard. We got there because we grabbed for convenience.

On my plan, ONE aspect of getting healthy is getting you to a healthy weight using nutrient dense foods so you can free up your mental space to focus on the deeper issues that got you (and me) to a place of unhealth and obesity in the first place.

And if you are like me, I was so confused by everything out there anyways. I needed simple, easy and convenient because my life is complicated, full and fast paced.

If your January health goals aren’t ending where you wanted them too maybe it’s time to explore something different! I’m your gal. 🙋🏼‍♀️ Schedule a conversation with me and lets chat!! Can’t wait to help you fit back into your favorite jeans. 👖 🥳🥰😘 #healthcoach #joinus #freedom #doitforyou #healthyhabits #stophiding

It hurts to look at pictures of myself like this on the left. Because I can see my discomfort. The weird energy and awkwardness of having photos taken of yourself when you’re over weight. It’s so weird because I didn’t feel it then - but looking back, it’s undeniable.

In these special moments I felt awful - emotionally and physically.

I robbed myself because of the true magic of the moment
Because I wasn’t taking care of myself.
I wasn’t prioritizing my health.
I didn’t believe things could be different.
I didn’t think taking control of my health would change my life.

Boy was I wrong.

For me taking control of my health - losing 70 lbs - helped me not only improve the quality of my life but cleared room for me to do the deeper, personal work.

Over the last 20 months there has been a lot of physical weight loss but a whole lot of personal growth found.

I am more confident than ever before - not because I look different, but because I *feel* different.

I feel good - inside and out.

That doesn’t mean that things are miraculously stress-free but the stress is easier to deal with now because I continue to do the work.

Do. The. Work.
You. Are. Worth. It.

I’ve walked it out.
I know the challenges you are facing.
I know the failures you’ve experienced.

I’ve been where you are. You can continue to repeat the cycle OR you can take a chance and do something different. #fatgirlturnedhealthcoach #levelup #healthyhabits #awakenings #soworthit

The Mind + The Body = A Powerful Thing. Transformation of body is not a hard thing to do in this country. There’s about 10000000 ways to lose weight, get fit, tone up, slim down etc. Transformation of mind though, that’s not something we come across every day. When I started my health journey, I believed some pretty yuck things about myself, I told myself even yuckier ones. Losing the 70 lbs didn’t change my mindset. It didn’t fix everything.
