Hi! I’m Alyssa, and I am so excited to be able to share bits and pieces of my life with you! My main goal with this blog is to document my (new again) healthy lifestyle and finding the right balance. With that comes all of the challenges and successes I have along the way. There really is something to be said for accountability! That being said, I am so much more than just that big old number on the scale, so of course, other parts of my life will be floating around here as well. I am married to my husband Justin, and have been for 5 years. I have two beautiful daughters, Gabriele, who is 11, and Anya who is 4. We have a black lab/beagle mix named Basil. we live in (chilly!) Minnesota. I love to cook, play with beauty products, read, paint, and spend time with the people that make me happy.
