I knew about this obstacle before today and I was so afraid of it! I love water but the small space for the nose and mouth freaked me out! 😳 But go figure, this obstacle was one of my favorites! 🤪 Once my ears were in the water all went silent and it was like ahhhhhhhh.... wooosah lol I just glided along peacefully until I ran into someone 🤣 @tough_mudder #toughertogether #toughmuddercentralFl

Shoutout to the stranger who videotaped me!! #therealmvp

For months I have been embarrassed and ashamed at what I see in the mirror. I haven’t weighed myself but I know I have to be close to 230lbs right now. Nothing fits, I am uncomfortable in my clothes and equally as uncomfortable naked. I’m going out tonight and am not even excited because my only options that don’t make me feel like a sausage are yoga pants and T-shirt’s. I miss being able to throw on anything and it would not only fit, but fit comfortably. I miss being able to sit down without my jeans cutting into me. When I look in the mirror I instantly think “you need to get on a diet, Ashley.” My desire to start counting calories or following a routine is at a 100, but there’s a little piece of me that doesn’t want to let go of the progress I have made with #intuitiveeating so far (I am barely binge eating anymore) For some reason my brain still equates dieting with feeling good about myself even though that’s not accurate... I was just thinking back to Halloween 2015 when my best friend was in town celebrating with me and I was a very fit 170lbs. I remember having a breakdown and crying before we went out because I felt too fat for my costume. Looking at those pictures now 🤦‍♀️ I looked amazing. So why do I feel like a diet is going to make me feel better when even at my low weight I still saw myself as too big? I know better than to believe thinness is the answer to feeling good about myself but that #dietculture trap is tugging on me hard AF right now... i can’t even count how many coaches have suggested I love on and compliment myself, naked, in front of a mirror, daily... & I have never taken their advice... until today. I’ve been done being obsessed with calories in vs calories out and muscle groups and cheat days.... but I am also done feeling embarrassed by my body and my journey. This is my public commitment to learning to love myself unconditionally. I’ve been saying things to myself, about my own body, that I would never say to or about someone I love. That ends today.  #selflove #selfcare #thickfit #dietculturedropout #antidiet #thestruggle #plussize #selfacceptance #effyourbeautystandards #edrecovery

5 days till my first @tough_mudder!! I was traveling the last two weeks but still made it a point to work in some fitness - but without falling back into obsessing over it. My sister and I took a late night jog that made a mermaid tail on the map! 🧜‍♀️ Lol I also went for a jog through the city to a reservation area and checked out the trails there. 12+ mile bike ride with my dad. Took an awesome Buti Yoga class. Lead the group workout at the mini retreat I hosted in my hometown. & Walked 4+ miles while carrying an 8lb medicine ball. What I didn’t do is cancel any plans or lose out on sleep for the sake of training, like I probably would have in the past. These past few months of preparing have felt like a very healthy balance and although I expect #ToughMudder to be a challenge, I know I will finish and am hoping to surprise myself with how many obstacles I’m still able to crush at my current size and fitness level. This week I am focusing on the cardio and getting a few higher mile jogs in (the TM Full is 10 miles) and then Saturday I head up to Bartow, Fl for my race Sunday morning! 😬😬😬 I’ll probably be bringing my phone, so check out my story on Sunday for live updates! 😃💪 #toughertogether

Massachusetts Mini Retreat in my home city today 💜💜 We made new friends & reconnected with old ones, we worked out, we ate lunch, we practiced focusing on the good, we loved on ourselves, we meditated, we hugged... it was awesome awesome 😃
.
Before we set up I prayed that everyone who came would feel safe to be themselves and that they’d take something positive away from the experience. I also asked for inspiration to say what the ladies needed to hear in a way that they could hear it. No joke, one of our amazing participants just posted on the fb event page “I needed to hear the things you were saying the way that you said them.” 😱 I HAVE ALL THE GOOSEBUMPS!!! #theuniversehasmyback #godwink #thatshitcray
.
Thank you, ladies, for making today freaking amazing. Thank you for showing up, thank you for trusting me, & thank you for being you! I hope you’re proud because each of you killed it today!

Today was a great day ☺️💚 I went exploring on a haunted hike with my biological dad and sisters, one of which I met for the first time today! If you’ve read my book Until Recently you know what a huge deal this is! I was looking forward to the get together but had no idea it would make my heart as happy as it did. 🙃 We saw Profile Rock and visited a Wampanoag cemetery and left some offerings. When we got home our grandmother had made us a dinner I haven’t eaten since I was a toddler. Today is going down as another of my “best days ever.” There’s more pics in my story! #hearthealing #intuitiveeating

Part of the philosophy of #intuitiveeating is rejecting the diet mentality- meaning letting go of the idea of that if you do not have a magazine ready body you should be restricting foods and/or calories to lose weight. Letting go of the idea that it’s our obligation to be as physically fit and attractive as humanly possible. However, if I reject the idea that I need to change my body to fit a standard, I have to accept that my body could be “as is” forever... that I may never have my dream body or even my fittest body again.  Tbh the first time I realized that, it made me almost physically sick... I want food and fitness freedom SO BAD but giving up my body ideals to have that is soooo scary. Why is the idea of accepting my body as is (healthy, strong, chubby) so terrifying to me? For years I had been under the illusion that I have embraced self love. But if I truly love myself why is it so uncomfortable to consider NOT changing myself? If I love myself and I am healthy why does it still feel like I need to be different? Why do I feel embarrassed to stay in this body? Lightbulb moment for me: I haven’t really learned to love and accept myself, after all. I’ve learned to love my RESULTS and my PROGRESS... but unconditional body love still a work in progress.
.
This morning I did yoga #UnderTheUmbrellaSky and it was a beautiful celebration of all kinds of bodies... different shapes and sizes and colors and abilities. Let’s this post be a reminder that even if your body doesn’t feel ideal, it IS a wonderful body. I am all for becoming a healthier person, but I am not for building a life that revolves around that idea that who you are and the body you have is not good enough.  Even if both the outside world and the little voice in your head say that you have to be different, I am here to tell you that you don’t. #notetoself

Couldn’t wait to share this story with you guys! I had an amazing interview with @abrahamchicks earlier today and Tina said something that made my brain EXPLODE. How come when we see squishy babies with their rolls and butt dimples they are the cutest things ever and we just want to eat them up, but then as adults we dislike those things about ourselves? Like, when does it go from the most adorable thing ever to something we dislike or even hate about ourselves? WOOOOW! It made me think about how cute and chunky and perfect I was as a baby. I have had the same exact arm rolls in every stage of my life from infancy to teenage years to my lowest weight to where I am now. You guys know that until recently my arms were one of my bigger challenges when it comes to self acceptance. But omg  this conversation absolutely shifted something for me. Why are my arms less perfect now than they were when I was a yummy chubby little baby? Hint: THEY’RE NOT! My body is as perfect now as it was when then. Soft and squishy, cute and cuddly, perfect just the way God made me! Nothing is wrong with my body - it was my PERCEPTION that was off.
.
The interview was for a new web series about women living in the law of attraction! Will share when it comes out and how you can watch it! ( & yes, I did the interview without pants 🤷‍♀️😂)

“When God created woman, he was working late on the 6th day... An angel came by and asked, “Why spend so much time on her?” The lord answered, “Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her? She must function in all kinds of situations, she must be able to embrace several kids at the same time, have a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart. She must do all this with only two hands, she cures herself when sick and can work 18 hours a day.” The Angel was impressed. “Just two hands...impossible! And this is the standard model?” The Angel came closer and touched the woman. “But you have made her so soft, Lord.” “She is soft,” said the Lord, “But I have made her strong. You can't imagine what she can endure and overcome.” "Can she think?” The Angel asked... The Lord answered, "Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate." The Angel touched her cheeks..."Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her." "She is not leaking...it is a tear," The Lord corrected the Angel... "What's it for?" Asked the Angel... The Lord said, "Tears are her way of expressing her grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride."... This made a big impression on the Angel, "Lord, you are a genius. You thought of everything. A woman is indeed marvellous"

Lord said, "Indeed she is. She has strength that amazes a man. She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens. She holds happiness, love and opinions. She smiles when she feels like screaming. She sings when she feels like crying, cries when happy and laughs when afraid. She fights for what she believes in. Her love is unconditional. Her heart is broken when a next-of-kin or a friend dies but she finds strength to get on with life." The Angel asked, "So she is a perfect being?" The lord replied: "No. She has just one drawback, she often forgets what she is worth."

I’m just shy of 2 months out from my first ever @tough_mudder & being honest with myself, this timing is WEIRD lol how does a person train for a 10 mile race with more than 20 obstacles scattered through out it, if they’ve sworn off workout plans or training guides? To be honest, I DON’T KNOW lol Training guides can be amazing and have helped me prepare for other races in the past, but I gave them up when I realized that the self judgement and criticism I applied to myself if I missed or skipped a training day was doing more psychological harm than physical good. So just like I’m intuitive eating, I am intuitively exercising. I know what this course entails and with that in the back of my mind I am crossing my fingers that I will feel inspired to follow a workout from their training guides here and there or run further than I normally would. Today it proved true when I did a 7 mile jog/walk- a longer distance than I’ve done in probably a year. However, if all else fails the good news is #ToughMudder is known to have a culture of teamwork, meaning even if you show up alone you will not be alone. Others will help you and encourage you to get through the obstacles and to the finish. In a worst case scenario, I am not a quitter so I know I will finish, especially if I have help! But being prepared definitely helps to make the experience more enjoyable... I have a feeling this will be a bit of a humbling race but I am still so excited. I LOVE obstacle racing and that’s how I want fitness to show up in my life: using my body to do things I love because they feel good and are fun... not because they burn tons of calories or look good on the gram or are supposed to help me reach a beauty standard.  #toughertogether

I know what this course entails and with that in the back of my mind I am crossing my fingers that I will feel inspired to follow a workout from their training guides here and there or run further than I normally would. Today it proved true when I did a 7 mile jog/walk- a longer distance than I’ve done in probably a year. However, if all else fails the good news is #ToughMudder  is known to have a culture of teamwork, meaning even if you show up alone you will not be alone. Others will help you and encourage you to get through the obstacles and to the finish. In a worst case scenario, I am not a quitter so I know I will finish, especially if I have help! But being prepared definitely helps to make the experience more enjoyable... I have a feeling this will be a bit of a humbling race but I am still so excited. I LOVE obstacle racing and that’s how I want fitness to show up in my life: using my body to do things I love because they feel good and are fun... not because they burn tons of calories or look good on the gram or are supposed to help me reach a beauty standard. #toughertogether  .
