Hello out there!
My name is Alyssa Lesa and I am 27 years old. I was born and raised here in lovely San Marcos, TX. I have an 8 year old son who will be turning 9 in October.
Being a full-time student, working roughly 35 hours a week and taking care of a growing boy is tough. I know some people have it worse than I do, but like Lil Boosie said, “You don’t know my struggle, so you can’t feel my hustle.” I live my life by song lyrics.
In my spare time I teach Zumba on Wednesdays at Texas Health and Racquet Club. I love Zumba because it helped me get to where I am today. I gained a lot of weight after I had my son and never attempted to lose it. After my mother introduced me to Zumba, I was hooked. It helped me lose 40 lbs and I’ve managed to sort of keep it off 🙂
Music is my passion! Although I don’t play any instruments (yet) I love the live music scene. As I was growing up, my step dad would always go to Ozzfest and he’d take all the boys in our family. I always wanted to go, but was never given the opportunity. I didn’t attend my first concert until I was 25 years old. In these past 2 years, I’ve attended over 20 shows and 2 music festivals. Unfortunately, when I began this endeavor, I didn’t always have a concert buddy. Luckily now, I have a boyfriend who also shares that common interest so I don’t have to attend shows alone anymore.
Another passion of mine is FOOD!
The main subject of this blog is food. Who doesn’t love to eat? My mission is to pick a recipe from Buzzfeed and determine how easy it really is to create.
I can cook, but when it comes to following recipes; my food doesn’t always come out looking like the picture.
Make sure you come back each week and see what I come up with!
