Hello my name is Ashley and I just tuned 21 in September. This blog is about my Journey to find a way to mesh all my loves together and bring back joy to my life. Thank you for being apart of my journey.
A little background on me for you guys- I love music , movies, baseball and health; I recently lost 164 pounds so health is my new important goal in life.I lost it all on my own no tricks or magic; just good old diet and exercise. I was Vegetarian but I ate mostly Vegan since I cannot tolerate Diary. My reasons for being a Vegetarian are primary for health reasons. Since I started my weight lost journey I started reading anything about nutrition that I could get my hand on. Many books promoted the switch to a more plant based diet. At first I thought that's nut but maybe I will try a few meals here and there. I found many books and fell in love. Also learning of the cruelty to animals and how it helps the environment just made me want to switch more. I slowly started to bring different veg food in my diet and decided to go fully after seeing the Bill Clinton special that aired on CNN about his vegan diet. I was so much happier with my decision. I fell so much better and knowing I was helping the environment and saving animal makes it that much better. But when my health started to go down hill I had to make the switch back and give up being Vegan. It really had to do with the fact that I started to cut calories way to much and did not support my body fully. I still enjoy a lot of vegan food but I do eat animals again. Still no diary since I am allergic and no eggs since I found out that I am allergic to that too. Here you will find post on what music I am listening too, movies I’m seeing, my favorite baseball team, The New York Yankees and health related articles I read and what I am doing for my personal health.
I go to St Johns University in Staten Island, NY and I lived here my whole life. I’m a business management major in the five-year combined degree program; so that means I go for five years and get a BA and a MBA. I am currently in year four of five.Then its on to Law school. I have big dreams. Any questions feel free to ask I look forward to sharing my brain with everyone.
