this ain't no joke.

That's right, this ain't no joke. Ashley is getting back into some healthy living.  Now, before I broke my arm I was in the yoga studio on the daily, I was also running about 3 miles a day.  Then the whole "the kickball is stronger than you" happened and I broke my right arm and was out of it all for about 3 months. I must say that I did run a half marathon with a broken arm though, so I ain't that bad off right?

But then when I got my cast off, I was in the midst of nursing school! Of course my super fit bff kicked my booty into gear before our next race, but jeeezzzzz can't a girl just be lazy?

But now Ashley is lazy girl no more. I live such a sedentary lifestyle (oh, and I'm a future nurse) and it's time to balance it all out for real.  I finally figured it out, are you ready? This is top secret right here! Before you can get your body and lifestyle back, you gotta get your MIND back. If your mind isn't in it, neither will your body. So I started reading a bunch of inspirational quotes to kick my booty into gear myself! And of course, my all time favorite bible verse pops up

"she is clothed with strength and dignity, and laughs without fear of the future." 
Proverbs 31:25

And that was all I needed.  I ordered me a super inspirational work out tank from Simply Sophia Maria's Etsy shop and I was ready to go! Sophia had my tank in my mailbox before I could even blink. She is awesome!

I love this tank so much for what it says. I don't want to be skinny, I just want to be strong. Physically, and most importantly mentally and emotionally. And not to mention, it's incredible light weight and I sweat like a P I G and it didn't stick to my love handles haha!

I got back into running while wearing this sexy tank, my one true love.  I can't wait to see where this next journey will take me. Although I did just over a mile and a half, I can't wait to see how far I can go again when this new strong mindset sets it.

You know it's Friday, so you know what time it is!

I must add that I missed last Friday due to road tripping to D.C. but I was backing it up in my car to any and all rap songs! And maybe a few backstreet boys showed up, okay maybe more than a few. 

I'm keeping up with this BSB theme in honor of them celebrating their 20th anniversary and announcing their In A World Like This tour. 

Quit judging, you know they're on your Spotify

It definitely is a mental thing as well as a physical thing! Love your new tank! That verse has helped me a lot through my journey to get healthy too!
