You're feeling it aren't ya? You used to be physically fit in the years B.C. (Before Children), but ever since you've entered the "young mom with kids" years, you've been in survival mode. I hear ya - I've been there, too!! Now you've got your head above water and you're ready to start living again. Maybe you're thinking it's time for a health kick? Great idea...except, why not find something that will last? This is what I like to call a health kick lifestyle. But where do you start? The first thing I suggest is to identify your top three health goals. After identifying my own personal goals, and talking with dozens of other moms in the same stage of life, I pinpointed some of the most popular goals and put together this to help accomplish them. The programs below are designed to jumpstart your goals and get you on your way to a lifestyle you love!
Learning The Lifestyle
Heyo! I'm Alison. Four years ago, my husband, Ryan, and I were two years into marriage and we had a three month old son. You know what it's like to have your first child. As soon as you find out you're pregnant, you start driving slower, you attempt to save more money and you dream about everything you will ever want for your child. Then, you realize you better clean up your life so you can be the best mom ever!! I was a former college athlete and Ryan was good at every sport, so we considered ourselves pretty fit. We thought we were doing okay nutritionally, but we decided to amp it up a bit. When we started researching nutrition, our friends thought we were on a "health kick." Turns out, it was really the beginning of a lifestyle change! Throughout the last four years, we have learned SO much about nutrition, and have applied it little by little, until it became the new norm. While on this journey, I have seen so many people start where we were four years ago, go all out, and then soon go back to old habits. My ultimate goal with this website is to teach you how to turn your potential "health kick" into a lifestyle that is sustainable and something your family and children will catch on to because of the benefits they see in you!
I first laid eyes on my husband when I was 14! I knew he was "the one."

Halloween is so much fun with little kids! I just love watching them dress up and run from house to house. With trick or treating on my mind, I read these SHOCKING facts while I was at the chiropractor. Americans purchase nearly 600 Millions pounds of candy each year for Halloween – that’s the equivalent of almost[…]
We recently purchased our first home – yippee!! We are SO incredibly grateful for this place. As we are still unpacking and finding just the right spot for everything, I find myself referring to The Healthy Home, By Dr. Myron Wentz & Dave Wentz several times a week. I have learned so much and have been able[…]
One thing that I really encourage when striving for a healthy lifestyle is finding foods that you ACTUALLY like. Spinach salads and kale smoothies are delicious, but you can’t live on them forever. You really need to have a large repertoire of healthy recipes to sustain a lifestyle. A few years back, we really amped up our[…]
Bloating and digestion difficulties – two things people rarely talk about (understandably so), but almost everyone experiences. I never really realized these complications until after we eliminated dairy and grains from our diet for a super long time and then I tried to eat some pizza. That didn’t go so well. It tasted great going down, but not long[…]
As a mom of a 5 and almost 3 year old, sleep is beginning to be a regular thing for us after years of waking up several times every night. If you’re still in that phase, be encouraged!! It will soon pass! While you can’t always control your kid’s sleep habits, you can still do[…]
Over the past 5 years, I’ve become really passionate about nutrition and finding ways to improve that part of my lifestyle and yours! I do believe healthy eating is the bottom line of health. Right above that, is exercise. In high school and college, my workouts were formed by my sport’s coaches. As I transitioned into motherhood, I[…]

Living a healthy lifestyle requires constant baby steps. Our family has made a lot of progress as far as healthy eating, and there is still a LOT of room for improvement. This topic doesn’t have much to do with food, but it struck me over the head when I was reading about it in The Healthy[…]
Sometimes eating healthy can seem like a game you can’t win. One day something is healthy, the next day you read it causes cancer. Bummer. The following foods are all ones that a lot of people perceive as “healthy” or “healthier” than another alternative, but they’re really not. 5 “Health Foods” You Should Stop Eating[…]
There are only two types of people in this world. People who love Valentine’s Day, and people who despise it. I happen to be in the “love it” camp. I’ve always loved it, but 8 years ago was my favorite Valentine’s ever. It’s the day my husband proposed!! Isn’t that so cheesy? Proposing on Valentine’s[…]
So we’re just having the best time ever visiting Ryan’s brother and his family in Orlando. My sister-in-law, Meg, has cooked us up some amazing dinners and desserts (that I’ll share with you later). We’ve had some fresh sea food on the Gulf of Mexico, authentic German cuisine and homemade ice cream so far. Sunday night, we[…]
After I started really working my USANA business consistently, I began to wonder if there was a conflict of interest between USANA and my faith. I was being encouraged to meet new people and share USANA with them, but I knew it was even more important for me to share the gospel. After much thought and prayer,[…]
