Well, posting this from my iPad turned out to be a disaster, so I will retype it on our computer… Here we go.
Tomorrow I will be starting the Advocare 24 Day Challenge and I couldn’t be more excited. I really like the Advocare products because they do not promise a “miracle program or a quick fix”, you have to establish a healthy lifestyle in order to get results. You get out what you put in. The diet plan is similar to the lower carb plan I followed when I lost 45 pounds before conceiving Aiden and what I had to eat while I had gestational diabetes, so it should not be too hard. I have already gotten back in the gym, so I am ready to go!
The 24 day Challenge starts off with a 10 day cleanse. It is a gentle cleanse that rids your body of toxins and preps it for the next 14 days, the Max phase. During the Max phase, you continue to follow the meal plan and take supplements that help with fat burning. I plan on continuing the Max phase until I reach my weight loss goals.
Since I have Insulin-Resistant PCOS, it makes it very difficult for me to lose weight. After Aiden was born, the first couple of months were fine, then my PCOS came back with a vengeance. My cysts have returned worse than ever, and all my symptoms are back. I have gained 25 pounds since I had Aiden (I had lost down to 5lbs under pre-pregnancy weight after birth and started gaining back in September). I am hoping that adopting the low carb lifestyle and losing back down to a comfortable weight, that my symptoms will subside.
I have already tried the Spark energy drink and LOVE IT! It is the only energy drink that I have ever tried to actually give me energy AND mental focus! Plus it is full of important vitamins and minerals. So, I am very excited to try the rest of their products. Here is my distributor website if anyone else is interested at looking at their products.
After I complete the 24 day challenge, I will post my before and after Stats and pictures. I have contemplating starting my own blog to track the day to day stuff, but I am still on the fence about that.
Anyways, just wanted to share with you guys this journey I am beginning for the next 24 days 🙂 Do not feel obligated to buy or anything like that. I haven’t really shared that I am doing this with anyone, but I wanted you guys to know. You are the people that I want to celebrate my successes with! Thanks for listening!!
Love to all.
