My name is Aleisha. I started this blog as a way to keep track of my progress, to express my moods, feelings, gains and losses. Eventually I would love for it to be a motivation and help to others trying to lead a healthy life.
Although I am only 20 and I have always battled with self image, weight, my appearance. Getting married almost 2 years ago my life drastically changed (in a good and happy way:)) but with that change came 15+ pounds and a big change in the way I eat, cook and view myself! So I know every year most of us set the goal or make a resolution to lose x amount of pounds. But this year I am vowing to myself to change my lifestyle. Meaning the way I look at myself, the way I handle stress, how to cook healthier but still yummy!, making physical activity fun and a part of life.
So welcome to my journey, maybe some of you can join me and do this together!
My husband and I got engaged June 9, 2008 and were married May 30, 2009. Our honeymoon was in South Carolina. We have lived 2 places and love our new townhouse, have almost been here 1 year already! It’s been an adventure but he is my best friend and the best decision I have ever made=)
