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:
