Hi, Welcome to our blog. We are the Cavanaughs. And we are no ordinary family.


My name is Ashley and I currently work a high stress outside sales job downtown Washington DC. We recently moved here from Santa Cruz CA to be closer to my husband’s family. ( The pic above was from our cross country drive)

When I tell people what my husband, Mark, does for a living I typically get an interesting response as he is a stay at home dad. It just makes sense for us. I don’t want my daughter, Aubrey, in daycare. I get more time with her and she adores her father.015.JPG

Mark and I really make a great team. I couldn’t be as successful as I have been without him. I have suffered from anxiety, depression,¬†and hormone imbalances for as long as I can remember. My husband keeps me grounded. He reminds me that I am a strong woman and together we can do anything.13769606_10154432683448223_4181024104277994229_n

That is why we have decided to dedicate ourselves to being the best us both on the inside and out. We not only want to improve our bodies and minds, but we want to help inspire others to do the same. And most importantly, be the role models our daughter deserves to have.

I have always wanted to write an autobiography but I never knew where to start. I look forward to opening up and sharing who I was, while you follow me and my family on our journey to a healthier lifestyle. We will share our ups and our downs, give you our take on parenting advice, and help you and your family create healthy habits and also have fun.
