About Ashly

Ashly headshotHello Gorgeous!  Welcome!

Grab a cup of tea, curl your feet up and settle in. It is time to take a deep breath and solidify yourself in the moment and let’s chit chat for a while.

But first…I have a confession to make.

For years I felt like I was all up in my head about my body and what I ate. Yes, that is right. I am NOT perfect with food or anything else for that matter.

Food and Body is all I ever thought about….Can you relate to that? It is painful, isn’t it?

Everything I did and how I reacted to my experiences had to do with the way I felt about my body OR how “good” I was with food and how I chose to eat that day.

Does this resonate with you?

Do you get tired of the constant merry-go-round of emotions with food and your body? I sure did. It is exhausting….isn’t it? Because of this, I decided enough was enough and created a way of living that results in FREEDOM from the merry-go-round of emotions, restriction,  and  punishment.

There is no need to live in that “mess” anymore.

Plain and Simple, I want to help you FREE yourself. Will you invite me in?

Linger over your cup of tea and I’ll share my passion and a little pain with you.

This is my mission

My mission is to guide you in “re-shaping” your way of thinking so punishing exercise and restrictive dieting is a thing of the past; to teach you the tools and solidify the belief and that you CAN reach your natural desired weight in a loving and empowering way.

I have an infinite love for fitness and healthy living, and a deep desire to inspire others to live a fulfilling, joy-filled life.  But, even with this love for health, it wasn’t always sunshine and roses for me. Through personal challenges with anxiety, weight and body image issues, I had to learn to face the fears these obstacles brought me; soon I found life was unfolding with unlimited possibilities.

I care deeply about your personal journey and want help you discover those unlimited possibilities for your own life; so you too can feel confident and empowered in your own body and fulfill the dreams you have set for your life.

Each month, I send out tips, education and information that will guide you in adopting a holistic eating and body love philosophy for lasting weight loss and incredible health.  Once you invite me into your world,  you get the information first!

Make sure you are in! It’s free!

Stop the madness of dieting and punishing exercise
