Crafty Girl, Fitness Consultant, Science Nerd

My name is Ashley. I am a pediatrician AND an internist. I work hard to stay healthy and help others do the same.

BUT –  There was a time when I was sick nearly every week, persistently unhappy with my body, and rarely had any energy.  I had a BMI of 26, I had been given the title “pre-diabetic”, I had kidney stones. I remember crying hysterically when some boy called me fat. **THEN** in Jan 2011, my husband introduced me to Turbo Fire. And I began a journey that changed my life.

Insomnia in Pregnancy: and 6 Reasons You NEED Sleep

Once upon a time, I was queen of sleeping. I could fall asleep anytime, anywhere. I did not require a dark room. I did not require a silent room. I could sleep in a chair or in a bed or in a car. I could sleep on my back or on my side or on my stomach. I was genuinely good at sleeping. And I always woke up refreshed. I was a morning person. But now I am pregnant.

Anyways, I used to make lists of five things for friday articles: “Five for Friday” and I thought I would start that again. So without further ado:

PiYO, Yoga, Pilates, and ME

I’ve tried yoga several times in the past, multiple times over 3-4 months, many years ago. My last semester of graduate school, I was working on my thesis, studying for the MCAT, planning a wedding (thankfully with a lot of help from my mother), preparing for our moving to Chicago, and trying to find a job. So naturally, when people told me yoga was the best way to get through stress, I thought I’d give it a try. And honestly, I hated it. My heart rate never got up. I was …

Half Way through Hip Hop Abs!

I can’t believe I am already half way through hip hop abs! My hubby and I have been working hard at it together! I guess I am actually 2.5 weeks through the 4 week program! I have really been pleased with my results thus far and look forward to sharing some before and after pictures with you guys in a few weeks!

It’s weird having done Shaun T’s newer programs first (Insanity and T25) to go back and do Hip Hop Abs. He looks SO much younger!  And the videos themselves …

Curious about Beachbody Coaching?

I just want people to be healthy and feel GOOD about themselves.
And that is what motivates me. As a beachbody coach, as a medical student (3/4 of the way to doctor baby!) and as a friend.
When I first became a beachbody coach, it was for the 25% discount I received on shakeology, something I still drink every single day. I was addicted, and being a coach allowed me to keep affording it.
But today, as I write this, I realize being a coach means so much more to me than that …
