I’m Ashley (McMillan) Weightman. I grew up in the small town of Wimbledon, North Dakota. In 2005 I moved to Bismarck to go to school where I graduated from the University of Mary with a Bachelors Degree in Communications and Business. I began working at the CBS affiliate as a reporter while in college and spent three years there. From CBS, I moved to Devils Lake to work at WDAZ-TV for a year, before continuing to work at WDAZ in Grand Forks. I married the love of my life Travis on June 23, 2012 and we now live in Bismarck with our three year old son, Corbin. Travis works at KXMB-TV and I at KLJ Engineering and attend Rasmussen College where I’m pursing a Bachelors Degree in Human Resources Management and Organizational Leadership.
Weight has been a struggle for me since I can remember. I do well for a while and then fall off the wagon. Four years ago I lost nearly 50lbs and was doing great. Two months after maintaining my weight, I found out that I was pregnant and gained 70lbs in nine months. I figured after I had Corbin, some of the pounds would fall off. Corbin weight 8lbs 12oz and I only lost 3lbs. Ever since December of 2009, I’ve been doing fad diets for about a month, trying the gym on and off, and eat healthy and nothing seems to be working. I’ve recently had some health issues and my doctor told me that in order to have more children and be a part of my children’s life, I need to lose weight, but most importantly, I need to do it for me.
So I started school again on Monday. Travis and I also got some sort of home buying bug and decided to look for houses. We looked at one every day this week. We haven't gotten home until nearly 8:30 and by then its homework and bath time for the baby. On top of that, I'm working my regular job and I picked up a shift at my old job. It's been a ridiculous week!
I have only exercised twice this week and I feel like its definitely catching up with me. We're putting an offer in on a house on Monday and I think once we get thses things figured out, I"ll be able to come up with some routine again. Also, I NEED to start training hard for the 5k that is coming up. I am becoming a little stressed about this one and we'll see how things start to shape up. I NEED summer to come so I can run outside. I hate running on the tredmill as I always feel like I'm going to fall.
How are you guys getting your workouts in with this nasty weather?
