Update | I'm Baaaaaack!


I know I've been away a while. Life kinda just gets in the way sometimes and some things have to take a back seat. For me, that was my blogging. But today is the start of a new month and I'm back into things and can't wait to get going again. Today I have my top ten targets of the month! I may make this monthly?

Here we go:

1. I am going to reduce my alcohol intake this month, narrowing down to around a glass of wine a week. (except for the 11th of October when I move out!!) 

2. No chocolate. No sweets! I'm gunna try!

3. Less coffee, more herbal teas. This will be difficult!!

4. More fitness! I want to do more fitness this month, now I'll be walking up and down from the train station at both ends. 

5. Reach my daily intake of water.

6. Stop eating crap! Honestly, the amount of Fast Food I've even lately is ridiculous! 

7. Write weekly goals. I want to try and right down three weekly goals and meet them! 

8.  5 a day. Yes I'm targeting to eat 5 fruits and 5 veg a day. 

9. Food diary. I'm starting a food diary this month. 

10. Blog more! I missed blogging so I'm back at it!!

So there you go my top ten targets of October! 
Does anybody else do this?

Quick Update

Hey Lovelies!

So today I managed a very happy moment. I noticed a difference in my body! The last few weeks I've really tried to eat healthily and be more positive about my body. I was told by the hospital I have over elastic skin and muscles meaning I'll bounce back into shape with no loose skin anywhere, which prompted me to kick start my healthy lifestyle again and stop. being. lazy!

I've been working harder at work. Eating healthier. And doing more exercise.

I shall be back blogging and tweeting more efficiently now :)

Love Rebecca xxx

Coconut Water!

Hey Dolls.

Today's post is about the much adored 'Coconut Water'. The brand I'm talking about today is Vita Coco. The lovely people over at Vita Coco sent me a lovely box of goodies contained inside was one of each of the 6 flavours of water.

Passion fruit
Peach & Mango (my favourite, and considering I really don't like peach I love this!)
Acai and Pomegranate

I really liked them! I have mainly been adding them into blended fruit and a scoopful of my protein for a really nice nutritious break fast. But they can be enjoyed on their own! I must admit I didn't like them room temperature but really enjoyed them after they had been in the fridge. They do have a slight 'twinge' to their taste some would say a slightly sour note which will not be for everyone!

Coconut water is highly nutritious and good for you. It has been spotted on countless celebs and Rihanna has been the face of the brand.

Coconut water is more hydrating than a glass of water and in Fiji is used as emergency Intravenus fluids to hydrate severely dehydrated patients and is very common practise.

It also contains more potassium than a Banana, which is great! Considering I know a lot of people who think Bananas are baby food!
Hydrating your skin is not only good for the inside of you but also the outside. After drinking Vita Coco, I have noticed a difference in my skin, hair and nails. They have started to look a lot better and the quality is better too, my hair isn't as dry and my nails don't break half as easily anymore.
Vita Coco has a massive thumbs up from me!! I shall continue to drink it. You can buy it from Holland and Barrett if you're more interested in the flavoured ones, where as I know you can buy the litre cartons from both Tesco and Sainsbury's for cheaper at around £3-£4 dependant on offer!!
Do you drink Coconut water? Which brand do you opt for?
