I guess you could say it was love at first bite.  I was a stressed out first year law student with too much reading and no time to cook. They were the cheesecake brownies at Au Bon Pain. One year, nine classes, and many brownies later I had gained thirty pounds and outgrown an unfortunate number of my favorite clothes.

My name is Ashley and I have had a weight problem for most of my life. I started down an unhealthy path during my first year of law school, but during my second year I decided to make some positive changes.  That, my friends, is how Ashley Malone Unlimited was born.

When I started this blog, my primary mission was to reach a healthy weight, wear a smaller size, and eat a little healthier. Now, I am back to my pre-law school weight. I still have a few pounds to lose, but I am focusing on maintaining a generally healthy lifestyle and hoping that weight loss will follow. Let me give you a glimpse of what I write about.

I was training to run the Rock 'N Roll New Orleans marathon on February 2, 2014, but sprained my ankle during one of my training runs. I'm not giving up on my dream of running a marathon in the future, but I have to heal my ankle first. Don't think that means there are no miles on Ashley Malone Unlimited, though. Meet Genevieve.

Yeah, I name stuff. It's quirky. I know. Get over it. Until the doctor gives me the green light to resume running, I'll be the slow-moving cyclist with the pink leopard print bike helmet

Sometimes I go in the kitchen and cook things. Sometimes these things are delicious and photogenic and they show up in a blog post or on my recipes page, which you can find here.

I also write about things I am proud of like, when I finished the Nashville Women's Running Series Half Marathon a few months ago.

If you're into that kind of thing, feel free to stay awhile. If you want to catch up, you can read my first post here. There is also a lot of background information here.

  5. Stopping by from SITs and I absolutely loved reading your About Me! We have something in common....I was learning to run last year and a freak injury left me with torn calf muscles and a sprained ankle...I truly sympathize you going through that because it's a pain but it's so cool to see you push forward! Looking forward to your posts!


  6. I wish to show thanks to you just for bailing me out of this particular trouble. As a result of checking through the net and meeting techniques that were not productive, I thought my life was done.
