Cocozia Review

As a health coach, I get asked a lot what brand of coconut water I like best, or either what I like to hydrate with other than plain water…My answer, Cocozia Coconut Water.

I was simply thrilled when Cocozia shot me an email asking me if I would like to review their coconut water

HYDRATION
Pure and simple, hydration is essential to life.
COCOZIA® Coconut Water is exactly that: a pure, natural hydration source containing not only water from the green coconut, but essential electrolytes too.
ELECTROLYTES
COCOZIA® contains a natural abundance of potassium and magnesium, as well as other electrolytes. Electrolytes are directly involved with body hydration and muscle function. Better to get yours from a natural source like COCOZIA® than from a sugary, synthetic sports drink alternative.
COCONUT WITH A STRAW
That’s how they drink coconut water in the islands, but fortunately, COCOZIA® has made it a little easier for you here! All the natural elements and flavor, without the need to carry a coconut to your work-out!

I’m a big fan of coconut water! I think its vital for people who workout hard and run!

I’m also a health nut, so the fact that it is 100% coconut water AND organic, makes it even better.

I didn’t get to run any long runs with coconut water this time, due to a slight setback in running from an injury, but I definitely took it with me on short runs, HIIT workouts, and cycling.

One reason I like coconut water, is because if I workout really hard, and gulp down some water, I’m not getting any electrolytes put back in me…so with CW, I’m able to replenish those and not have to worry about my stomach hurting or feeling as fatigued. I’m also really picky about my coconut water. Most coconut waters I’ll get, taste a little off or a bit funky. But with Cocozia, I feel like it tastes perfect. So thanks, Cocozia, for making us excellent coconut water!

What’s Been Going On and a GIVEAWAY!

Hey lovelies!

Fall is here and this girl is SUPER happy!

I’m slowly trying to get back in the blogging game. I just don’t want to get burned out again and feel like I’m out of ideas. Taking so many pictures of my life is hard to do when I’m trying to be more communicative to the people around me. There’s just a point where you have to slow down or stop for a bit and embrace each moment with your full attention.

But hey, I’m coming back and I’ve got a ton of ideas.

First, I want to TRY to blog Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week. I can’t promise you anything, but I will definitely try to make it happen.

Second, I thought you’d be interested in what’s been going on the past 2 months so I’m here to share!

In August, I got a new job (yay!), I am also officially certified as a Health & Nutrition Coach, I suffered a really crappy foot injury that ruined my half marathon plans, and I created The Alabaster Running Club where beginners and non-beginners come out to run twice a week in Alabaster. It’s so much fun being the president of a running club. Whhaawhhatt?

Alabaster Running Club

mission 5k 2013

In September, I started planning my health and wellness workshop that will be in Alabaster in the next 2 months, I’m enjoying my job, I made awesome workouts, and tried new things!

Finally! I’m Back!

Okay, so I’ve been gone since January and it’s been a pain!

20140319_14201320140319_14200820140319_142016

I came home from a conference in Atlanta in January and my laptop (of 5 years) would not turn on! My brother, a computer whiz, told me it was not going to ever work again (sad) and the laptop was NOT worth any fixes. As soon as I heard those words, blogging was the only thing on my mind. I need my Windows Live Writer!!!! It’s not that much fun of an experience to blog on my Samsung Galaxy. I tried…didn’t go so well.

Anyhow, my birthday is in 3 days, and my wonderful parents, brother, and grandmom gave me an early gift! When you get older, you really only need 1 thing and 1 thing only. So, laptop it is! I’m very, very, thankful!

I got an HP-Pavillion 17” laptop with Windows 8….and it is AMAZING! I hope it stays this awesome for 5 years or so!

I’m just really glad to be back on the blogging wagon. Being stuck in the mud for 4 months is so crappy!

ENOUGH! Let’s get onto some food and workouts! Oh, and a little update on IIN.

Dinner

For last night’s dinner, I found this recipe on Pinterest and not only did I Pin it, I actually baked it! I made a couple of changes like…omitting the bacon and changing the Gruyere cheese to Parmesan. Mine didn’t look as fabulous as Lindsay’s though Sad smile

School has been great so far. I’m only on Module 8 (week 8), but so far, so good! I love all the videos, assignments, and quizzes! And I’ve been taking lots of notes and stuffing them in this note journal.

IMG_20140403_071616

This time next year, I will be 8 weeks out of school and helping others live out a healthy lifestyle! Gonna be the best job ever! Such an exciting thought.

Bible Verse of the Day

1 Peter 1:3 KJV

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead”
