*How in the world did I drag 70 + extra pounds around on me?
*Ashley, look how strong you are!
*Ashley, look how far you've come!
*Ashley, you're doing this and you're not quitting!
When I weighed 250 pounds, there was no way I would have been able to flip a 70 pound bag down a soccer field and back. In fact had she told me to do it, I would have said "I CANT!" It feels so good that I can now! It also felt good to know that I am 75 pounds down and haven't given up yet! I'm still going. Flipping that bag up and down a field showed me that I have come a long way and have really increased my strength. My trainer knows how to push me and knows what I need at the right times. I had become quite comfortable in my workouts, and today I was pushed out of my comfort zone into doing something that challenged me and showed me how strong I am. I am attaching a video of me flipping this bag. In the background you can hear my biggest cheerleaders (my daughter and Hether) cheerin me on! Without those 2 always pushing me and giving me that extra bit of encouragement, I wouldn't be able to keep going! Today I said this and am going to stand by it, "GOODBYE 75 POUNDS AND DON'T COME BACK!!!"
