Benefits of Coconut Oil

Back in September when I was in Dominican Rep I bought some organic goodies.

One of which was coconut oil. I tried cooking with it but didn't like the taste too much. So I have been using it every other day as face and body moisturizer and in my hair. Major notice I have seen is in my hair. I always had a dry scalp and now it is gone! I rub coconut oil in my hair then wash it out, it worked after 3 times of doing this. I still continue doing it every other day. Also, I have noticed a reduction in cellulite! AND! I think it is making my face look younger ahah! Since I started work I got many people asking me if I am a co-op student or thinking I am 22, no more than 25 years old. whooho to that! However it actually makes me feel old, altho 28, thinking back of when I was 22 feels sooo long ago! ahah!

I only have half a bottle left! and plan on buying more from the health food store very soon!

Happy Hump day everyone!!

Cellulite and dead sea salt

Last week on my goals I said that I was going to try different things on this horrible cellulite I have. I tried the coffee grinds a couple times, but yuk! Coffee grinds all over the shower, is way too messy. So instead I shower with a body scrub and also been taking dead sea salt baths twice a week. Today I inspected the areas, and I think I'm seeing improvement! It looks a little more smoother and overall just looking better whoohoo. So this is a routine I will definitely stick to! I'm excited to see some results, finally!

The steps I take:
1. In the shower use a body scrub to scrub the areas
2. Then fill the bath with warm/hot water and add dead sea salt
3. Soak in tub for 20 mins (no more, because it's very dehydrating)
4. Drink lots of water
5. Cream your body with your favorite creams. I'm using coconut cream but usually use the nivea Q10 body cream.

Only 5 more days till the beach so I'm hoping to be beach ready! Now, if only I could get 10lbs to shed off already :)

Green Tea ALL day!

Today I decided to drink as much Green Tea as I can! I need to flush all the bad bad sugar I ate this weekend.

The culprit is below! Sfoglia Cake
This cake is heaven! I had 2 pieces this weekend and I have left overs in the fridge! I forgot to send off pieces to the guests we had over and now there's a plate of cake in my fridge! I could just throw it away... but oh what a waste of delicious cake that wood be! I could go give some to my neighbors... hmm but all these kids have nut allergies and I have no idea if this cake is nut free! I cannot eat more of this cake this week, that is a big no no! I have my mini goal to accomplish by Wednesday and trip goal by September. Self discipline will be needed this month that is for sure.

Husband decided to join me in my beach ready goal, so tonight we are starting our jogging sessions, fun!

Also, I just read online that coffee grinds help with cellulite.. have you heard this? I just made a pot of coffee( not to drink ha!) but to save the grinds in a bowl. Tonight I will rub those grinds all over Mrs Thighs and Bum and hopefully be beach ready by Sept!
