The 'Heather' Detox

I'm back from spending a couple of days in the U.K and even though it was a very 
productive trip, I am feeling tired, washed out, 
podgy and bloated beyond belief!

At the mo, some friends are doing/embarking on a special cleanse program and to 
be honest, I'm jealous.

Super jealous. 

I wanna do one, haha. 

I'm gonna see how they get on and purchase a kit for myself if their results are good!

But, on the flight back to Spain it got me thinking.

I can still do a cleanse and be healthy, even if I'm not following a proper formatted one.

I've thought about the elements of different diets I've done and the basis of said cleanse 
program and kinda mixed it all up together.

For three days I am going to cut out caffeine completely, drink at
least 1.5litres of water a day,
drink my aloe gel, matcha and pu-erh teas. 
Cut out the carbs, eat salad, eggs and smoked salmon. 
And make a big batch of detox soup. 

I'm initially doing three days, as I want to stick to it and see results. 
If I'm enjoying it and finding it's not bothering me, 
I will keep it going for longer.

Along with eating right,
 I'm going to have a 60 min walk each day too.


It's too late in the day for me to weigh myself, 
but I will do that first thing in the morning and 
add it on to this post! 
So make sure you check back!

I'm really hoping that after the three days my bloating would of 
gone down and I'll start to have a bit more of a glow 
in my face or at least some colour anyway!

I will be reporting back on Tuesday guys, so keep an eye on the blog.

Wish me luck and why not join in with me too!

Please, please, please, share any tips and super-foods you love to have 
when embarking on a healthier you!

  3. I keep saying I'm gonna do this (have succeeded before) but you're head has to be in the right place doesn't it and in the right mindset. Chia seeds, fab superfood are great to add to porridge, smoothies and puddings.

    1. Definitely! I thought I'd do three days initially, I mean it's not a proper detox just eating a bit more sensibly and I'm hoping it'll continue! I've never had chia seeds before, will look out for them.

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

Moringa Oil - review

For a while now I've become increasingly interested in my skin and skincare products. I am now well into my thirties and becoming aware that my skin is changing . Something the 20 year old me never thought would happen. Maybe I thought I'd be blessed with clear skin for, forever. But dear Heather that is just not the case! Literally five years ago, since my 30th a random red blemish appeared on the end of my nose and has happily sat there since! Some days it would seem more prominent then others, but it was there to stay, so I thought. Recently, the week leading up to my 35th a friend of said blemish started to appear! A smaller lighter version. Flippin' hell I'm being invaded! Was this my future! The end of my nose filled with weird under the skin red blemishes?? I had already spied one random one on each side of my jawline!  Where ever next!? Enough. Enough is enough and action was needed. I'm not letting my future skin be plagued with these weird

Getting motivated to exercise

Getting motivated to exercise for me is probably one of the hardest things. I don't know why, as in my head I'd love to be one of these fitness girls you see all over Instagram all happy, bouncy and always raring to go. I always feel good after I've exercised so I really don't know why it takes me ages to get myself motivated. I'm 39 now and I know I need to lose weight. I'm not drastically overweight it's more of a personal thing. The usual story that my clothes are getting snugger, I'm out of breath a lot quicker after just doing the simplest tasks and I'm snoring a lot more at night, which my doctor did say could be because I've put on a few extra pounds. Over the last 9 years I've actually put on 20 lbs! That's crazy isn't it. The weight has literally been sneaking up on me and the fat has gradually been moving in a pound at a time. Crafty little thing really.  It has got to the stage where enough is enough and I need, probably fo
