Through my membership as Sweat Pink Ambassador I recently was given the chance to review some products from Zola.
Zola sent me a few items to try, their coconut water, a coconut water with pulp (which I was most excited to try), and a bottle of acai juice. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the products they sent me. I was already a big fan of coconut water so getting a couple of free cans was super exciting for me.
Rockin my super sweet Zola shades after a sweaty workout sess!
So what’s the deal with coconut water? Well there’s a few reasons why I love it. Number one it’s delicious, especially Zola with pulp I like the extra bits of real coconut in it. Number 2 it naturally hydrates you and contains essential electrolytes from potassium, sodium, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium, with out the added sugar that many sports drinks contain. Did you know it has more potassium than a banana!? Number 3….ummmm…again it’s delicious, all natural and is a great alternative to water and sports drinks, I get bored with water, I drink A LOT of it!
One of my favorite ways to use coconut water is to make my post workout smoothies. Here’s one of my favorites!
Are you a fan of coconut water?

Hello friends! I saw this last night on the Jillian Michaels Facebook page and it’s been on my mind all morning. So instead of something mildly original from me, I am sharing this little gem to get you motivated to forge through the week ahead.
To me the battle of you vs you is all a matter of choice. Only I can choose to be happy and not let everything else around me effect my mood or behavior.
I am suddenly facing some long hours at work that are not leaving much time for anything outside of work but trying to keep up with a good sleep each night. It’s making getting in those 5am workouts harder, and making healthy food choices harder. Skipping those things leaves me irritable, anxious, and for lack of a better word sad.
I could try to blame my bad mood and lack of time on the job, but that’s the easy way out. I have to find time for myself to make healthy choices.
So this week me and only me are fighting the battle to be healthy and happy by making smart choices to get in to bed early, get up early, and keeping my eats clean and nutritious. All things which makes getting through the long work days a little easier.
What battles are you fighting for yourself this week?
