If you’ve been following me for awhile you know that I’ve been on somewhat of a fitness journey for the past 9 months or so. I’ve always been pretty in shape both naturally from a fast metabolism and athletic build to being active in middle school high school. I was on the swim team and basketball team in middle school and I ran track in high school, so I was really fit. When I went to college I kept up with working out somewhat, but when I graduated I basically completely fell off. Work and “life” itself seemed to get in the way. However I started to become unhappy with my body because of it. I “liked it” — it was decent. But I just knew it wasn’t the best it could be and I wasn’t at my full potential. I knew I could LOVE it and have full confidence if I really worked out and took my fitness seriously.
So I have to admit, I was a little skeptical about how I would eat while here in Jamaica. Sometimes when I go on vacation, I start eating all crazy and don’t know how to act! But who wants to come back from vacation with extra weight on you? Instead you should come back looking refreshed and hotter! But I’m glad to say that while I’ve been in Jamaica I have eaten the best I have in a long time! Both in regards to the taste and the healthiness!!! It has been so easy to eat healthy here because everything is fresh and organic. There are fruits and vegetables EVERYWHERE! I’ve been eating tons of coconuts, pineapples, papaya, bananas, callaloo (they are like collard greens but taste even better!) and so much more! I am lovinggg it! So I’ve shared a few of my health tips to help you eat healthy on your next vacation too!
Recently I’ve developed this great love for coconuts! I use it for my skin, hair, nails, to cook, to eat, to drink, for health—the list goes on and on! It is truly amazing to me. A super food in my book!
So if you follow me on any social media—you know that I am in Jamaica right now, flooding your timelines with loads of pictures lol (sorry! Hehe). Well being here has been coconut heaven! I’ve had soo many coconuts already. And I will probably continue to have more until I leave!
