Fit Blogger We Love: Fashion Fitness Foodie

Alyssa loves soaking up some sun during light exercise!


Living healthy as an event planner can be a tricky task, especially when you're constantly on the go. Just ask Alyssa from Fashion Fitness Foodie, who is always tested by sweet treats and happy hours while on the job. But instead of sabotaging her wellness-minded habits, Alyssa enjoys turning comfort foods into nutritious dishes (with a smidge of indulgence on the side). We caught up with this fit blogger to learn more about her dreams of running in a tutu and the Disney classic that powers her through any workout.

5 things I can't live without: Not including my loved ones, I'd say peanut butter, my iPod, frozen bananas (for smoothies!), Trader Joe's and my camera.

On my fit life list: Run the Disney Princess Half-Marathon, which I actually just signed up for last week! 13.1 miles in a tutu and tiara, here I come!

I'm happiest when I'm: Running barefoot on the beach at sunrise. It's the most calming and peaceful feeling I've ever experienced.

My biggest indulgence: Homemade ice cream. No matter how full I am, I will always make room for ice cream! I'm almost positive that my stomach has a separate compartment for it.

Most embarrassing song I'll admit I work out to: "I Just Can't Wait to Be King," from The Lion King soundtrack. It pumps me up when I'm running!
