Advocare 24 Day Challenge

I decided to try out the Advocare 24 Day Challenge!!  I am starting today instead of tomorrow so that my last day will be Friday before Memorial Day weekend-priorities! :)  So last night, I had popcorn and diet coke for dinner.  I went with some girlfriends to see The Other Woman.  Total chick flick and hilarious!  We all loved it!!

Back to the challenge: I am starting I got up this morning, took measurements, weighed in, took before photos, and jumped right in to the challenge.  I also had the fiance weigh in and took his measurements.  He is doing his own supplement challenge and I wanted to see how clean eating effects him too.  I am sure he will drop lots of weight and inches since he is a dude!

Thoughts so far:
The fiber drink is terrible, BUT not as bad as I thought it would be.  Spark is delicious!  I have had Spark before, but the Pink Lemonade is really really good!!  The Catalyst and OmegaPlex pills are giant! 

Why did I decide to do the challenge?  Several reasons.

#1-Becky encouraged me to join and it seemed like a good opportunity to try it out.  Several healthy living bloggers have been posting about positive results not only with weight loss, but with energy levels and overall health improvements!

#2-My energy levels have been low this year.  I don't know if it is the terrible winter, but I have felt sluggish and lacking in motivation.  I would love to get some of that back!

#3-No one loves to get into a bikini (except maybe swim suit models!) and it is always a little stressful trying to get in summer this is a great kick start to get that beach body!  Plus, I have to look hot in my wedding dress in 6 months!!

#4-Clean eating-I have been trying to eat more whole foods, but there is always room for improvement.  I eat pretty healthy most of the time, but processed foods definitely creep into my diet more than they should.  I am looking forward to seeing how I feel without them.

#5-Cut waaayyyy back on soda and booze.  I have one can of diet coke per day + an occasional fountain drink as a treat.  I feel like this is too much and would like to completely eliminate it for the challenge.  Booze on the other hand-I will cut back on this one.  It is getting to be wonderful patio weather and there are a few events that are on the calendar where I plan to limit myself to 2 drinks. 

Have you done the 24DC?
Did you make any modifications to fit your lifestyle?

I can't wait to see how I feel and progress throughout the challenge!

  1. Good luck with your 24day Advocare challenge! I've done two food challenges (in the middle of one now) and there is always something new to learn from them.
