24 Day Challenge-Advocare

So sick… 24 day challenge off again. Have no choice but to stop the challenge… And restart next week when I am stronger and healthy again. On the positive side, my husband is amazing at taking good care of, my friends are so kind, and my co-workers very supportive. I couldn’t ask for more support while I am sick…. Except maybe my mom! :)

Good grief Charlie Brown! Back to being sick again and knocked right out of the 24 day challenge once again! Will I be the round 3… 24 day challenge girl??? For what it’s worth the doctor said my body is in over drive trying to fight this infection. Going on a zpack and a steroid.. Won’t be going to the gym anytime soon. I am going to keep taking my supplements. I have tried to tell myself that I was not sick… But I could feel myself getting more and more ill everyday. Darn it!!! I surrender… I’m sick and need to accept it. But, I’ll get better soon.

Here are the results of my husbands 24 day challenge with Advocare. We all see these photos.. These success stories… The great weight loss plan… But is this real? Yes, it really is. Was it hard? No, it wasn’t. My husband followed the plan, made better choices in his good choices, and did a little more exercise. Side bends, sit ups, push ups… Nothing too drastic. We continued to go out, there are plans, events, parties, family gatherings, and friends. It’s possible to do this comfortably and be successful. I’m on Day 10 and have lost 5 pounds. That might not sound like a lot but unless there was a serious life changing set back in my life I can’t recall losing five pounds. I’ve slowly gained pound by pound through the years never really losing more than an artificial pound or two that seemed more like the scale teasing me at the gym. Today my husband is celebrated as a rock star… At least in our our home. :) But, tomorrow the challenge becomes mine. I will have 14 days to lose another 5 pounds. I find I eat more and am far less hungry on this diet than prior to being off it… But I will need to increase my exercise.  Let me change that too saying I will increase my exercise! Today I had my first meal replacement shake which was strawberry and I love it!

What a day! Two hour business lunch followed by an afternoon of mall shopping ( keep walking past the food court), no you can’t have a pretzel! Dinner at a pizza place on SiestaKey…. And a visit to the ice team shop at 9:30. My teen niece.. Always hungry as a athletic swimmer in training… How does her aunt survive on her last day of vacation?? Edamame for lunch, soup and salad for dinner, small fat free yogurt ( hold the cone) with strawberries… Home safe and sound! :) Under the circumstances… My willpower was so strong today! I am very proud of myself!! 
Still need to do more cardio!

Day 8… Need to really increase my exercise but feeling the progress. When I started my first 24 day challenge before stopping within the first week because if the flu I weighed the heaviest I have ever been at 150. As of today I weight 144 and my clothes are fitting better!  I am very motivated on  selecting good food… Just need to start except using more… Tonight I will do some cardio for sure… From here on out it’s a half hour every day no excuses! 
Tonight we went to a Mexican Restaurant! Oh my! My total weakness! We took my niece and I ordered a salad and soup.. and ordered ice tea. My husband had a salad and ice tea as well. We had a few chips.. not too many. Afterwards, we brought our niece out for ice cream. My husband and I shared a small ice cream cup together. Is that in the plan.. of course not. But, we probably consumed about 35% of the calories that we would have eaten. I think it was really okay.. we had a wonderful night.. out and although we bent the rules a little.. I think the day was a success.
I went to the store and bought a lot of organic chicken breast which we are going to grill out for protein snack/lunch during the week.
Tonight we had a “dance party,” not exactly a true work out but it wad cardio for sure! :)
Going to the gym in the AM and ready for Day 9. Happy girl. :)

Today was day 7 for myself on the 24 day challenge. Today was one of those days.. That made me realize the high level of unnecessary bad 
food and drinks I would have consumed if I was not in the zone with this challenge. High calorie breakfast replaced with smoothie ( spark included) fresh fruit, delicious! Beach.. No need to eat chips and snacks that aren’t good for me. Speaking of beach.. I was more comfortable today in a bathing suit than I have been in a long time. Late afternoon… Another fresh smoothie instead of fried Mac and cheese and pizza… Prepared it but didn’t eat it! :) No need to drink beer or wine. Tonight… Carrabbas Yes my  favorite! I ordered some chicken and zucchini. A meal choice under six hundred calories.  I did have a side salad that came with it that was not included in the 600 calories.. But I was super proud of myself. And you know.. I was happy. Happy at dinner… Happy now. I’m looking forward to day 8 tomorrow! My husband is doing great… He looks absolutely fantastic! He will be done with his 24 day challenge this week! I hope he has made his goal and lost 15 pounds… He has done such a great job he deserves to nail his goal! Love Advocare!

Day 6 on the 24 Day Challenge… Today is the kind of day that I dream of! Beautiful sunny skies, my family, friends, everyone together! This also means… As many people can relate too…. that so much of socialization involves great food and drinks! So, I’d like to report I have done extremely well today! And happy for it! I just sat with my niece while she had pizza and I had a green smoothie with a banana and I feel great… Honestly didn’t bother me a bit! I feel fantastic, have lots of energy! And the best part is.. I wore a pair of yoga pants that were ridiculously snug on me before.., and they looked great! I actually bought myself a fun casual really cute dress at a Fringe Spa this morning… I had looked at it awhile back and thought.. No way… Couldn’t pull it off. Well, I wore it shopping early this afternoon and I felt super!! There’s a full Saturday night ahead but I expect to stay strong… And feel even better tomorrow! Confidence is feeling your best! And that’s happiness!

Day Four! Positive Motion Moving Forward! My husband is on Day 19.. I think I may have been off on his days.. But I checked his daily guide and he is on day 19 and looking great! I’m on Day Four…First day of no fiber drink. Breakfast is a delicious spark with some fresh fruit blended together.. Happy Girl! Love the Cleanse Phase.., I also wanted to share I comfortably wore a pair of black slacks that were a little too snug (to wear) before I started the 24 day challenge that were hanging in my closet. I’m 5’10 so nice dress slacks that are long enough are always a challenge to find… So.. being able to wear them and feel good yesterday was a great boost! I’ve got big expectations for myself and am very excited! Bring the challenge on… I’m ready! I did mention yesterday I had a glass of wine.. I’m done beating myself up over it. I know I had a glass a wine because I arrived at the party alone and felt a little anxious and had a tough day emotionally.  So when quickly asked if I wanted wine, my answer was a positive open one to feel comfortable in my environment. I’m not going to make that mistake again and am right back at it! 24 day challenge— Your mine! 
Day Four was really positive today… stayed away from any night time cocktails, pizza, and snacks. It was tempting! Friends and Family… Friday night and spring break… but both my husband stayed strong, had fun, and are happy. Feeling like Day Four was a great success!
P.S. My husband and I both had a nice strawberry salad for dinner tonight.
