I've got exciting news! I've re-vamped the look (and name!) of my website! Did you notice? What do you think?
I've been dreaming and scheming for a while now and I knew it was time for a change. I'll be honest - the overhaul isn't complete. Changing things like this is way more consuming than you would expect and let's be realistic, I've got 2 little ones at home, a husband busy with football season and about 30 minutes a day to do what I want and that's usually a shower. So...I've busted my butt and made some awesome changes and have decided to just go live now and do the rest when I can.
It's kind of where I'm at in life right now too.
Things aren't ever going to be perfect. There is never a best time to do something. I'm never gonna have it all planned out. So I just DO. Each day I tackle my family and my business and my well-being the best I possibly can do it. And it will all be ok.
So, I thought it would be fitting to launch everything new on a random Thursday afternoon. It didn't have to wait til it was totally done. It didn't have to wait until Monday or until next month or until next year. I want to get started NOW!
You might be asking, "WHY THE CHANGE"?
Well, while fitness is still an essential part of my life (see what I did there?), it's honestly not my biggest focus right now. I need running and workouts to stay healthy and sane and I absolutely love teaching my Moms in Motion class, but I didn't feel like I was really delivering the "fitness" part of Home Field Fitness here on the blog anymore. That being said, I took a look at what I had been delivering on the blog lately and it all narrowed down to "THE ESSENTIALS". As a mama of two, I'm all about paring things down to the basic essential things for loving and living our healthy life here on the home field. Fitness is one of those things. So is good food, essential oils, amazing friends and coffee. Of course...the coffee. So I wanted to change things over and really delve deeper into those essentials! You may have also noticed that I've recently been doing a lot more education about essential oils, and I also wanted a better platform to share that oily love!
So, what can you expect from Home Field Essentials?
A little bit of everything!
Is it just an essential oil blog now? No.
Am I going to rattle on and on about how amazing essential oils are? Probably. Because y'all. They rock. But that's not everything.
I want to EMPOWER YOU to take control of your life and your family's life and be happy and healthy, no matter what your home field currently looks like. I hope you can come here for the tools it will take to get more active, to eat better, to have a healthier home, to be a happier person. I want to BUILD A TRIBE of amazing, inspiring, doing-the-best-they-can mamas who like to drink coffee and wear neon running shoes as much as I do.
You can expect to see posts about my kids, about our life as a football family, about our favorite healthy foods, my favorite workouts, race training updates and of course, essential oils too. I don't plan on posting super frequently here, because I want what I post to be great, and a girl has got to prioritize things. Certain things I deem as blog worthy and you bet your butt I'll get it posted up here.
But, I'll be doing a lot more of my updates and education on Instagram. I'm totally obsessed with pictures, I can post while I'm nursing a baby and it's what works-for-me-right-now. And that, my friends, is why I love being an entrepreneur. I can run this blog and my business exactly how and where and when I want to! Take note - my IG handle has changed - so be sure you're following @homefield_essentials over there and I'll be sure to follow back!
So all that being said...I want to thank YOU for reading and following and supporting me in this journey! I would love it if you to drop by and say hi in a blog comment or on Insta or even shoot me an email. I want to get to know you lovely amazing people who check in on my blog once in a while. And I want to hear from you to know how I can help you thrive on YOUR home field!
It's great to see you! I'm Alyssa and I blog about all the things I've found "essential" in my life as a fit mama and football coach's wife. You'll find all kinds of fun stuff here like workouts, oily info, football stories and more!
