Written March 26, 2013….some things have changed but I’ll address it later…
 
Last month I realized that I did not blog for the entire year of 2013.  
 
The entire year…wow.  
 
The year went by so quickly that I didn’t even notice.  Lots of things happened during that time…some great and some really really bad.  I have to say that most of the year I was extremely depressed due to a bad relationship and infidelity.  
 
Man it took me forever to get out of that funk, with forever being just a few weeks ago.
 
On the flip side, I have accomplished so many things, life changing things, that I once deemed impossible.  I was able to leave my teaching job and got accepted to pharmacy school.  Attending school required me to move eight hours across the state to the mountains.  I completed my very first 5k although it took a little while.  Finally, I’m active in many organizations in school from which I am learning so much.
 
Now I’m back and my main problem is that I’m not making time for me, not making time to live.  I have gained so much weight and am currently sitting at the highest I’ve ever been and at a place I  said I would never be.  I don’t wear makeup at all anymore and my life has just fallen into pieces.  I feel myself backsliding and I can’t go back to who I once was because I’ve made so much progress over the years.
 
With all of this being said, I’m going to use this space to focus on my journey to becoming the best me possible.  I will still talk about hair and makeup, but I am also going to focus on my health.  I realize that there are many people going through what I may be going through, not only with weight, but with other conditions also.  
 
I encourage anyone reading to please feel free to comment and share.  I plan on posting at least once a week.  I only ask that you don’t preach.  Over the years I’ve seen numerous doctors and nutritionists.  I’ve always known what to do, I just never cared enough to do what I need to do.  I am not interested in meal shakes, quick fixes, or fad diets.  I am changing my life, not just the number on the scale.
 
Thanks for reading…
Ashley
