One of my biggest questions before doing the 24 day challenge, was “What happens after?”
And so I thought I would do a few updates, answering that very question!
Here are a few of my thoughts about 1 month out from my first challenge.
–> Post challenge, it’s not as hard as I thought it would be (except for Memorial Day weekend –> cupcakes = totally worth it). . . it’s all about balance.
Clean eating = 80% And getting pizza on Friday nights with Scott = 20%.
BUT it is still hard. . . and that 20% is super easy to slide to waaaaaay more.
I am still trying to figure out what the best balance is for me. Usually, we eat desserts on the weekends, and start on Friday night. . . however, I have noticed when I wake up on Saturday and Sunday morning, I don’t feel the greatest.
BUT, I think that life is about living and eating cookie and pizza and cupcakes and whatever makes you happy.
So, I am working on finding my perfect balance on the weekends. Enjoying those things, but eating good things for my body most of the time. And clean-eating 95% during the week.
–> I love that because I am eating healthy snacks Luke is eating more healthy snacks. celery sticks, peanut butter, apples, cashews, smoothies.
–> I have been able to go heavier in all my weights in body pump. I had pretty much been at a standstill with my weights for the past 6 months. And now, I have increased on every body part. Amazing.
–> I LOVE when people ask me about Advocare. I love talking about it, I love recommending products to people and I LOVE hearing how awesome people feel after they try it. I mean, it almost sounds too good to be true, right? Lose weight, more energy, feel amazing. Yes, yes and yes. All are possible with advocare. Their tag-line is #truth – “We build champions.”
–> 1 month out from the 24 day challenge, I am down another pound. And my pants fit the same as after the challenge.
–> So,what Advocare products am I using?
I am still drinking spark every morning.
I have had my caramel skim latte (or caramel macchiato from Starbucks) every once in a while – more of a weekend treat than an everyday thing now. And I am using O2 gold before long runs on the weekend. I also love SLAM for an afternoon pick-me-up.
Do you use Advocare products? Any favs?
