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!

Heather ♥

  2. I will join you...:)

    1. Fantastic! Look forward to hear how you get on! Be sure to let me know! : )

  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

Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginner

~ Disclaimer - this post is just a light hearted look at the very basic blogging tips. I do not have high DA or high stats, but I thought some of the things I have picked up over years may be helpful. Even if just one person takes one thing I've shared as useful info, then this post is worthwhile. This post also contains affiliate links ~ I'm laughing at myself a little bit writing this post as I want to be very clear that I'm not an award winning blogger, I don't have a high da score and I don't really have many page views at the moment. You're probably wondering to yourself why am I even writing this post if I'm not a far flung award winning blogger? Well, this is it. I call myself a blogger, because well I have a blog and I document stuff. I've had my blog for over eight years now and even though I haven't had a breakthrough (yet) I have picked up a couple of things along the way. I have also been asked before by friends about starting a blog, so

How to do your cars ITV/MOT in Spain

  ~ Disclaimer - this post is not associated with any ITV centres in Spain or anything that they maybe connected with them. I am also not a car mechanic of any sorts and I would always advise to seek professional advice. This post is simply sharing my experience of an ITV ~ It's that time when Marks car is due it's ITV, which is similar to the UK's MOT. In Spain your car has it's first ITV check when it's 4 years old. Then every 2 years up until the car is 10, then it's checked every year. When living in another country and not really knowing the lingo, these type of things can seem a little daunting at times and it may feel easier to just throw money at things to get someone to do it for you.  Which I think happens a lot when it comes to getting your cars ITV. A lot of garages offer a service where they will do a pre-itv check and then take your car to the test centre and do it for you. Sounds great doesn't it. Which it is don't get me wrong at all, it&
