Another Surgery

April 17, 2015”

You all know about my history with melanoma. I had two back in 2012, and I’m scarred up and cancer free now. I was very hesitant to try a new dermatologist now that I live in Richmond, since my awesome derm in Virginia Beach is the one who caught my two melanoma, three basal cells, […]

My Experience with a Septoplasty & Sinus Surgery

April 14, 2015

I’m alive! And I can breathe! As you know from my last post, I had a septoplasty and sinus surgery almost two weeks ago. I’m still in recovery mode, so I’m not completely able to reap the benefits. I can tell you already that I am breathing so much better. It’s amazing to actually feel […]

Septoplasty & Sinus Surgery… fo mah face.

March 31, 2015

Hi. My name is Alyssa, and I have a deviated septum. As I so nicely diagrammed for you above (from a shameless haircut selfie I probably took to send to my mom), the septum separates the two nasal passages. If it’s crooked in any way, it disrupts airflow and causes difficulty breathing. Welcome to my […]

March 23, 2015

Yesterday was simply the best. My Pure Barre studio hosted an #AMYSTRONG class to benefit my sister in her second fight against breast cancer. We had a completely full house, and the energy was absolutely amazing. I was so frazzled and emotionally overwhelmed, I’m certain I was spinning around like The Tasmanian Devil as I […]

IsoPump You Up

March 20, 2015

You guys, I have a new favorite thing. It’s protein powder. I have a new favorite protein powder. Does my excitement about this make me a total meat head? I’ve taken a vacation from making protein drinks. I’m not quite sure how or why they fell off my radar, but I haven’t been including them […]

March 18, 2015

We’ve all hit the workout plateau before. After you’ve been taking a certain fitness class for a while, it’s possible you’ll hit a weight loss plateau, a stagnant level of perceived challenge, or a need to reignite your passion for the exercise.

Back at It [Running Again]

March 16, 2015

Look who finally came out of running hibernation. Yesterday was an absolutely gorgeous day, and it just so happened to be my favorite running temp (65 degrees, and even a little warmer in the sunshine). I hadn’t laced up my sneaks since January 6. There are a lot of excuses to insert here. One, I […]

The Predicted Snoozefest With A Twist [#TheBachelor Recap]

March 10, 2015

Who called it? Who said Chris Soules would be one of the snooziest Bachelors in all of Bachelor history? I should back up a little. I do think Chris made the right choice (no brainer), and I commend ABC’s very obvious attempt at making us think he might really choose the girl whose name we […]

Loving Lately

Tweed Retail Therapy There’s a huge boutique called Tweed in the same shopping complex as my Pure Barre studio, and I shamefully hadn’t stepped in before this past Friday. I went to town for a little retail therapy during their Spring sale event. Please check out that Kate Spade glitter water bottle. If you know […]
