We use a corkscrew to open a hole and drain out the water. Very simple. You can crack open the coconut afterward with a hard blow with the back of a heavy knife/cleaver, or on any hard object (we use the edge of our stone fireplace, lol.) Then we put both halves of the cocnut in the freezer for about 30 minutes. The meat shrinks from the cold more than the shell does and it helps you scoop it out a bit easier.
Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.
Ok primal win! I'm a nanny and the kids have seen my drastic eating change and weight loss over thr past few months and i have told them little tidbits of info when they ask, like fat isn't bad, and sugar is what makes you fat, things like that. So today they came home and the one girl said how she was on the bus and a little girl said "i have cheese but its full fat so I probably should only eat half" and the little darling I nanny for said she literally did a facepalm on the bus!!!! She is like "i thought about you chels!" Haha awwwww! And then her sister chimes in "yeah when I was at lunch today, there is a girl there who is too heavy to do gym, and she had pretzels, cookies, and a sandwich in her lunch and she said it was all fat free! And I knew better because of what you told me chelsea!"
First off, how cute that they are actually listening to me lol. But its also really sad that there is a kid who is too obese to do gym.

In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.
