Advocare Results

7 Feb

The last day of my Advocare 24-Day Challenge was this past Wednesday.

I went to take my measurements Wednesday night only to find that the notes on my phone in which I had recorded my original measurements had somehow been deleted.  Talk about a MAJOR upset.  And of course I can’t remember them all…the only ones I remember are my arms.

I took my new measurements anyways and lost an inch in each arm.  Other than that, I have no idea how much I lost.  All I have to go off of is weight loss (which I don’t think is a great way to measure because weight can be deceiving) and my pictures (which are terrible quality).  With that being said, I lost a total of 6 pounds….and here are my poor quality pictures.

Please note that my swimsuit is fastened at the same tightness for each picture because I did not untie behind the neck of my top or the sides of my bottom and the back of the top is a one-size hook.

Overall I feel better about myself and am happy with the results but still have a long way to go before I am content.  It is very hard for me to lose weight and losing 6 pounds in 3 weeks for me is unheard of.  I was only able to work out a few times so these results are strictly from the healthy eating and Adovare Challenge.  The only time I “cheated” on the eating was at Communion at church this past Sunday when I had a bite of white bread dipped in grape juice but I’d like to think that the Lord didn’t let his body and blood count as cheating. 🙂

Have you done the Advocare 24-Day Challenge?  If so, I want to hear about your results.  Did you continue using any Advocare products once you finished the challenge?  I think I am going to continue with the shakes, Spark, and MNS.  But we will see…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!

5 Feb

Today is my mom’s birthday so…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!!

This woman is absolutely amazing.  She has always been there for me for anything and everything I could ever need.  Words cannot explain how much she means to me.  I am so thankful to have been raised by such a great person who has set the best example for me my entire life.

It has been a crazy year with all of the wedding planning and I cannot even imagine what kind of stress I would’ve been under had she not been such a champ when it comes to doing anything.  Mom has kept me on schedule on what I need to be doing for the wedding and has done more research for me than I even knew was possible.  I can’t praise her enough for the support she has shown me and Joseph.  It means so much to me, Mom, and I truly appreciate it.

I love you so much, Mom!  I can’t wait to celebrate this weekend (since we can actually go out to eat and have a drink since today is the last day of our Advocare challenge)!
