SPARKle with me...

SPARK was how I was introduced to AdvoCare. My friend Abbey had this "great new product I just had to try." Boy was she right. I tried it once and never looked back! SPARK is my life-line. I only had 4 hours of combined sleep last night because of my fussy baby. This morning, I didn't even blink, grabbed my SPARK and feel like I got a full night's rest. Before SPARK I would have been a vegetable by 2:45 in the afternoon. Now, I'm go, go, go, no need for a nap! I owe so much to AdvoCare and I've barely started with the company. I have my energy back, I'm getting my body back, I have my brain back! After the 24 Day Challenge plus a few weeks, I've lost 22.5 inches total so far AND 6 pounds. I wore a skirt from 2 sizes ago on Saturday and ROCKED IT!

When Life Hands you a Lemon...

It better be challenge approved! It's easier to laugh about it now but last week was rough, and when I say rough, that is an understatement. We had some very trying moments and when I find a stressful situation, I usually turn to food and poor health choices for comfort. So with all that stress I let my guard down and slipped off the proverbial wagon a few times. But life goes on and so must I. I need to pick myself back up and get back on that horse or fill in your own silly cliche here _____________.

For the most part people are starting to really notice the changes in my appearance, outlook, and energy level. I feel better than I have in years and I know that even though I may slip here and there I have an AMAZING support system. When they say a sorority is for life they mean it. Josipa and Abbey are my sisters for life! These two women have been truly a godsend in the last few months. I am blessed to call them friends and sisters. We may have started out as sorority sisters but we are LIFE SISTERS now. I love you both dearly!

But enough with the gush. I ran, yes ran, 33% of a mile on Thursday, I briskly walked the rest of the mile. It's not a lot but it's a start. After 4+ years battling a knee injury, a ligament replacement, and a baby; I finally feel like I can try to run. I was never a runner but I want to try and that is a good thing. I even bought new running shoes so there is no turning back now. I hope to be running a full mile by July and walking at least 2 along with the run. We'll see if I can make it there! Happy Monday!!!

Day 24

While I still have a ways to go to get to my summer of 2008 body, the last 24 days have been an amazing jump start. Looking forward to continuing to lose inches and weight and feel amazing.

I think my goal is evolving to getting back down to a size 10; I don't really care what the scale says.

Almost done with the 24 Day Challenge (pictures)

So today is day 22 of 24. Not only do I feel awesome, but I look better than I have in a long time. I still have a ways to go but this was a great start. Total inches lost so far; 19. Total pounds; 6. I had a huge start in the cleanse phase and I was walking a ton and working out 3 additional times a week. I would have had even better results had I continued on that path but as always, life happens and I stumbled along the way. I missed things in the challenge. I had to stop walking as much because my knee started acting crazy, and during week 2 we had a flu bout through our house and mother nature wasn't being very nice to me. This past weekend was full of parties and I didn't scrimp on the fun. I don't regret any of it either. Everyone kept telling me how great I looked and that is enough motivation for me to keep going. I know I need to get back to the working out part and have my 24 DVD in my bag ready to go once my students leave this afternoon!

A little perspective... this was just 22 days ago...

Here's what I currently look like. PS this white shirt used to show EVERYTHING and look pretty awful and the bra I'm wearing stopped fitting Dec 2011, it fits again! The jeans are the same from the first pic.

Day 19

It's summer weather and I just walked a mile in jeans and a black shirt at school. Not smart on my part but hey going home in a bit to get ready for the weekend of parties! Tonight is bro's 30th; tomorrow is our first solo mixer and my parent's annual Cinco de Mayo party; Sunday is Kenny's first birthday. Yikes!!!

There will be lots of party food so I better make sure I get my workouts in! Happy Friday and Weekend readers!!!

Day 15 Measurements

As of Day 15 on the AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge I have lost a total of 17 inches throughout my body oh and 4 pounds! That is crazy!!! I don't know if it's the Challenge, or cutting out soda completely, or a combination of both but whatever the reason, I feel awesome. Pictures to come...
