2. McDonalds soft serve ice cream cone!! My fav!

3. This dinner of broccoli, grapes, falafels, and a Japanese sweet potato with white chocolate wonderful PB and cinnamon. YUMM 🙂 Also had a glass of kefir- it was my first time trying it and I really liked it! It has a lot of great probiotics in it which is definitely good for me and my stomach. 🙂

Top 3 highs

2. Florence and the machine + Of Monsters and Men concert with my momma! Seriously almost cried tears of joy listening to them. I was dancin’ the whole night hehe.

3. Hot yoga class Thursday! I was definitely sweating a lot, but it felt great! Love all that yoga does for my mind and my body.

Loved this post by Catherine. Great topic and one that I think needs to be discussed more!

I am not my past

Great post by Julia, and something I think we all struggle with: moving on from past identities. Check it out!

Physical to mental health

I really appreciated Kate’s rawness and honesty in this post. I really do believe that mental and physical health are connected.

That’s it for this Friday!

Now tell me:

    I think it’s just so wonderful that you didn’t have lows this week. Wow, God used that to give me more joy in the Lord! Also, Marina is precious! I love all of my blogger girls. Is yoga hard or is it mostly relaxing? Also, I will always always love McDonald’s soft serve.

    • Reply Alyssa June 14, 2016 at 5:54 pm

      Marina IS precious! And it depends on the type of yoga! I love it though- great for my mind and body! McDonalds soft serve is delicious and super cheap! Can never go wrong with it. 🙂

    How. good. is a hot toasted bagel with melty schmear. OMG now my mouth is watering. Have a great weekend!

    • Reply Alyssa June 14, 2016 at 5:54 pm

      SO good!! Bagels are the best, with peanut butter, cream cheese… the toppings are endless hehe. Hope you enjoyed your weekend!

  • Reply Kate June 10, 2016 at 9:21 pm

    Hey girl!! I’m seriously envious of your concert experience… That sounds amazing!
    I think you’re smart to not go looking for lows. If you didn’t have any, why bother? For me it’s about being mindful of every moment I have. I hope you a great weekend and enjoy more of that delicious ice cream!

    • Reply Alyssa June 14, 2016 at 5:53 pm

      It was such a great concert Kate. Very blessed I got to go! I hope you had a great weekend girly!!

  • Reply Cora June 10, 2016 at 10:16 pm

    Okay. Lyss. THAT DINNER. White chocolate pb on the sweet potato? Have I told you before that you are a genius? Also. I’m obviously following both your Mcd ice cream and your bagel inspiration, but damn I need strawberry cream cheese. Now. Stat. Biggest craving.
    Your highs are fabulous. You sound happy and honestly I feel happier just reading this. Have a lovely weekend love.
