Hello All... by all I mean my dear sweet Ashley. lol. So today I want to talk about my "daily reflection" I had at the gym.
The gym for me is strictly "me" time where I focus and try to forget all the bs that's going on at school, or home, or family drama. Lately though, with school and whatnot I haven't made it to the gym. So my quote of the day:

Basically if it really is important to you, You put it in its priority place. At one point, yes gym was priority. I made my whole schedule around lifting, cardio, supplementation, and eating. Right now though, I'm in nursing school. My priority is to make the grades and graduate. 

Right now its hard. I'm turning into a self loathing person. Because for so long I made the gym and eating right such a priority in my life that now, its hard to cope with not being at the gym for hours every day. Its a concept that most people won't understand. 

So- what am I going to do about it? Simple. 

I'm gonna set my alarm 2 hours earlier and just do it! =) haha. No, I can't change my mental status on the importance of gym time. I'm just going to have to find 2 hours out of every day that I'm going to have "me" time. Anyways... here's my workout:

Warm  up: Sprints- 20 minutes total
 1 min 8.0 / 1 min 6.0 (repeat 10 times)

Assisted Pull up 4 sets 6-8 reps

Or if I get there and don't feel like doing back

Cherry Popping!

So this is going to be a new thing for me. My buddy from class has suggested I start a blog, and well, with all the stressors I have in my life these days, I concluded that the outlet might be nice and help me destress some. 

Who am I? Elizabeth Robinson, formerly known as Elizabeth Landrum... with several volumes of nicknames. (Liz, Lizzard, Lucy, 362.5, Izzy, Bibeth, you get my drift). I'm 25, for two more weeks; Married; in nursing school, have two dogs, and have a never ending desire to do a figure competition. haha. I love to workout and yummy healthy recipes. I would rather go to a gym than shopping any day. If I ever hear people talking about working out, you can be sure that I'm eaves dropping. Guilty. 

Anyways... maybe I should find a survey or something... Health Hx form. lol. Kidding. I'll look for some things and topics to write about. I actually have a test on Thursday, so I'm suppose to be studying for that. Until next time. Ciao!
