AdvoCare 10 Day Challenge–recap & results

So, as you know, Scott and I did an AdvoCare 10 day challenge. It was perfect timing to sneak in 10 days between the 4th of July and our annual week long trip to the Lake.

Just as with my first challenge, I meal planned and prepped like crazy the weekend before. I wanted to set myself up for success as well as my husband (his first challenge!).

And then crossed my fingers for the fiber drink on Day 1. I know I am a broken record, but O.M.G. peaches ‘n’ cream is so so so much better than citrus!

If you missed my previous posts – here was the meal plan for the 10 days and then a WIAW day of eats post too.

My thoughts:

#1. Still a huge SPARK fan. I continue to drink it every morning. I also drink it in the afternoon before and during BODYPUMP. I also use it in the afternoons if I am feeling tired.

#2. I love how the challenge encourages me to eat healthier snacks. Sure, it takes a bit more prep than just grabbing a granola bar. But I love snacking on nuts (cashews), fruit, fresh veggies with hummus, and homemade larabar balls.

#3. Yes, I really really wanted a cookie on Saturday night. And if we are being honest, some pizza too. But we didn’t have either. And we survived. And I felt SO much better on Monday morning without having to deal with post-sugar withdrawl/hangover.

#4. I loved having Scott doing it with me too. Having a AdvoCare buddy is the best.

Someone to cheers your fiber drink in the morning, to remind you about your catalyst before working out, and to notice all your hard work making changes in your body. I’m already trying to convince him to join me for the full 24 day challenge that I am putting together for October –> are you in??

#5. Scott is still loving the SPARK, he’s been drinking it every day post-challenge.

And the results:

Overall, I lost 1.6 pounds and 3 1/2 inches (waist, chest, and hips) .

Overall, I felt like my stomach was flatter and you could see more definition in my arms. My clothes continued to fit well. I feel like my energy levels are good – morning and afternoon!! And I feel strong during runs and bodypump –> which is an awesome feeling!

Scott lost 3.4 pounds and 1 1/2 inches (waist and hips). No pictures – someone forgot. Winking smile

Like I said before, already looking forward to doing the full challenge (24 days!) again in October!! Let me know if you are interested in joining in!

Linking up with Becky for Treat Yourself Tuesday, because ya’ll know how AdvoCare is a great way to treat yourself!
