In the spirit of turning 30, I decided to revamp my instagram page and truly introduce myself!
I am Ashley!
Mom of two
James and Madeline.
We have two dogs, Charlie and Chloe.
I am a Army wife.
We will move around a lot.
I am afraid of snakes,
I hate being cold. (Go figure)
The Arrow and The Flash are my shows.
I struggle with acid reflux and finding balance in my diet.
I love wine and I love pizza.
I am a fitness coach.
Introduce yourself! 🦋
My new Jeep Compass! I got her yesterday and I have to say I am super happy I did! I’ve been wanting an SUV since forever and now I finally have one!!! 😍😍😍
Honestly the most legitimate question ever asked.💯
Just had to put this up today to remind myself I am blessed. My home is not as clean as I want it to be. I am not on top of my ebay and Amazon business. I have a long list of projects to be completed. I am disorganized and behind in everything. But the love of my life is still here after everything with his health this year. I will catch up eventually but until then I will continue to smile with joy and love.

Pumpkin spice e n e r g y b i t e s!🤗
Because I’m gonna need ALL the energy⚡️ I can get over the next few days as I go in to my long work stretch! I’m working 6p-6a at the hospital 5 of the next 8 days!
I know that going into this coming week prepared is going to help me stay on track with my nutrition and help me avoid the snack table they have put out that is filled with gummies, cookies, pretzels and chips!
So to set myself up for success I made these delicious pumpkin spice energy bites! I didn’t measure anything - I just added ingredients until it was able to form into tasty little bites:
-pumpkin spice shakeo
-natural peanut butter
This and other fall inspired recipes are things that I will be sharing in my upcoming “Clean Up Your Pumpkin Spice” group! You’ll get to try the new pumpkin spice shake and get some of my fave fall recipes!

I've been a rule follower my whole life, so why would #carepackages
be any different? Believe it or not, there are rules when it comes to shipping items overseas. Make sure to check USPS rules and the rules of the country your loved one is in for what you can and cannot send in your box.
Items to avoid include: cigarettes (depending on the receiving country), explosives (including things like poppers and sparklers), some meat products (pork in certain countries) and any, and all, alcohol.
It's not worth the trouble you and your loved one can get in if you're caught breaking the rules.
It’s amazing how good the body feels when you take care of it!
I was doing dishes and I lifted up a heavy pan and I thought, man I remember when I didn’t have the strength to wash this. I know, pathetic right? But the truth.
I would beg and barter with Chris to wash the heavy pans from dinner. Because it literally pained me. And if I had a Lupus flare, forget it! 🙈
I’ll take my little gains. And to see my body change with just my 30 minute a day workouts from home ANY DAY over feeling like I can’t wash a pan or run after my kids - (because believe me, those boys are fast!)

“How do you do it all?” A question I get asked often..And if I’m being honest, it makes me giggle inside because truthfully, I’m a hot mess.
My hair hasn’t been washed in 3 days. #dryshampooislife
I have applications to join my next fitness bootcamp that have been sitting in my inbox since before my in laws came to visit last week (so sorry! 🙈) My nutrition has NOT been good lately.
I fail daily as a mom and wife.
I have so much on my to do list that I just stopped looking at it last week, Tuesday to be exact...so a week ago.
I’m starting to feel like chubaca with the hair on my legs because I can’t remember the last time I showered without one of my kids climbing IN the shower with me (in their clothes). Tim and I are feeling on edge with each other but not wanting to talk about it much bout of fear that it’ll just make the other more stressed because we are both so busy.
My living room is clean but my bathrooms...😳 they ALL need a serious scrub down #boymom
Yesterday I met a friend for lunch and it turned into a wrestling match with James because he wanted to walk around (I forgot his shoes). The list goes on... So when you see my posts/stories (or those of other women you follow) and compare yourself, I want you to remember something...YOU are doing amazing.
We’re all struggling with wondering if we’re doing enough.
We’re all praying for a 5 minute bathroom break (in a clean bathroom) without fingers crawling under the door.
We all desire an uninterrupted shower.
We ALL fail. Daily.
So I challenge you today to pay yourself on the back. Say something nice to yourself in the mirror. And remember, you’re not alone in the chaos.
Be easy on yourself. This mom life stuff ain’t easy.
As for me, I’m gonna sip on this preworkout, pray he’ll let me have an easy workout, and press play because if I don’t work on ME first, nothing else goes right. 👊🏻
As much as I love Monday, Tuesday is the real MVP. It’s taco Tuesday y’all! The best day of the week! 🌮 💛
Thank you for all that you do.
Through thick and thin you’ve been nothing short of a role model to all of us.
Moved you across the world a couple times, put your career on hold, and you don’t stop.Two jobs, 4 kids, and keeping me straight....a couple jobs by itself. 💜 You are selfless. 🤲 You are giving. 🙇♀️You are the glue that keeps it all together.
There’s no way we’d be here without you —and who knows where I’d be.
You are everything to me.
From Team Frank we love you, thank you, and you keep us all inspired. @teamfrank4 #armylife #armywife
The struggle was real this morning. But 30 something minutes of determination and I’m good to take on whatever the day brings.
One love 💋

These leather joggers have been a fave of mine since our days in Alaska. This morning London complimented them and then said “Mom, you need to buy those in my small size so I can wear them too.” I had to show her that she did have a pair once. Swipe to see Baby London in her faux leather joggers. 😍
