the 24-day challenge has started!

Hello, everyone!

I am on Day Two of the AdvoCare 24-Day Challenge and so far, so good.

*** I also want to mention here that I've signed on as an AdvoCare distributor, so if anything you read in the next 24 days appeals to you, please let me know! The 24-Day Challenge bundle IS ON SALE from now until 21 Jan!

Ok, back to the Challenge.

Day One was pretty easy. I looked up helpful tips on Pinterest and read that if you place your day's "goodies" in a Ziploc bag and carry it with you throughout the day, you're more likely to succeed. That tip definitely worked!

I started out the day with a ProBiotic and soon as I woke up and then made my Fiber Drink 30 minutes before eating a bowl of oatmeal. The Fiber Drink isn't delicious, but it's not as bad as I thought it would be. While the texture is interesting, you can tell you're drinking a cup full of health! I mixed mine with a little bit of Spark and it was tolerable :) The faster you drink it, the better. Just pretend you're back in college chugging a beer...not that I would know anything about that, though.

Mmmmm fiber drink!
See? A cup full of health!
 I then took 2 Omegas with my oatmeal and then 2 Omegas again with lunch.

At bedtime, you pop the Herbal Cleanse tablets  and then your day is complete! It sounds like a lot to keep up with and I was nervous that it'd be too much work. But with a little planning and organization, it's totally doable.

Note: On my Ziploc bag, I wrote out what I needed to take and when in a Sharpie marker. This is revolutionary, as you don't have to go back to your manual or look things up online. Just write it all out the day before, pack your baggie and done and done!

 I am started out the Challenge weighing 162.8 (uggggh).

I am not going to weigh myself for at least another week. I've heard that you shouldn't weigh yourself while on the cleanse because you're drinking a lot of water and the fiber can actually make some people feel heavier (and their jeans tighter). It's just wise to not weigh yourself until all the stuff your cleansing your body of has been flushed out.

What I can tell you, after only one day, is that I already feel lighter, if that's even possible. I drank all the recommended water (about 80 oz for me) and yes, I had to go to the bathroom a lot yesterday, but I feel a whole lot better and definitely have more energy. For someone who works from 4 a.m. to noon, this is important!

I am also trying to eat mostly Paleo, as I mentioned in my previous post. I am following this eating plan. Well, I will be once I get all the groceries this weekend. For now, since my in-laws are still in town, I am just trying to make better choices until I can get on the plan and stick to it! 

So here's to day two!

I love that you're posting about the challenge! I'm excited to keep reading.

"A cup full of health" is a great way to describe the fiber drink! Haha! :)

I weighed myself this morning and was 170.4. Yikes! Here's hoping my 10 day challenge helps that go down a bit!
