Advocare 24 Day Challenge Complete – Before and After
Yippee Skippee I did it! My Advocare 24 Day Challenge is DONE! I was telling my husband when I started this series how nervous I was. Because even if there was no difference – I feel good, but that is hard to get across in pictures. BUT there’s a pretty good visual difference! Total loss – 2lbs and 2″ just off my waist. Where I started back in November, (My First 24 Day Challenge) – 158lbs My waist – 37 1/2″ Now 27″
Basic Meal Plan I followed:
Breakfast - Scrambled Eggs – Mix in fresh spinach and diced peppers – salt and pepper
Snack (twice daily)- Muscle Gain OR Apples & Organic Peanut Butter or Almonds (I had the fruit on my refuel day)
Lunch – Egg Salad or use Tuna or Diced Chicken
Recipe: 2 Hard Boiled Eggs – Chopped Spinach, Yellow Peppers, Red Onion, and Tomato – The dressing a squirt of mustard and chipotle tabasco and some of the vinegar from the peperoncini jar
Here are some dinner options (these are not all the recipes I used this time around but ones I use regularly):
* I also like to have roasted veggies – add some fennel, red onion, carrots, sweet potatoes – SO GOOD!
If you have leftovers use that for lunches. We also like to Cod that we season with lemon, Mrs. Dash and a little salt and pepper
Salmon – light olive oil and Johnny’s Seasoning! We have a toaster oven and it cooks up quickly in their! Serve over spinach
Spaghetti – Get the Chicken Sausage from Trader Joes and cut out of the casings and add to their organic tomato marinara – serve over broccoli or spaghetti squash
Chicken Salads – Dressing is vinegar from the peperoncini jar and italian seasonings.
If you are stuck and bored, look through all those great magazines we subscribe to – if it has cheese ask yourself if it would be good without cheese. If it has pasta, can you sub a veggie for it or if they use red meat can you use ground turkey, etc. Believe me – I like flavor so have fun with it. This IS a lifestyle change, you will soon crave those good healthy foods that your body needs.
Products I took:
Exercise: Insanity, Zumba and running on the treadmill – with the exception of Zumba my workouts were about 40 min a day 4-5 times a week. Insanity is 6 days, but you do what you can and 4-5 days is what I can do right now

Maintaining is the easy(er) part. I love life and want to live it. If I am going to go out to dinner and have something that is not on my food list then I make sure that I am a good girl the other days. I have a 5/2 rule. 5 good days and 2 flex days, and I try not to have the flex days back to back. Tonight is our home group night and we are having pizza. Does this scare me? No because my metabolism is rockin and tomorrow it will not sit in my stomach (that is what it used to do) it’s gonna come out. If the jeans ever start to feel snug I know what to do.
I will also continue to exercise and take the supplements and do a herbal cleanse every 90 days. Spark, Catalyst, MNS – these are my core products and what fills in those nutritional gaps.

While my husband and I never intended for this to turn into a side business, it has and makes perfect sense for our family. I LOVE to help people – whether it be saving money or health and wellness – I want to surround myself and be involved in peoples’ lives. I know people tend to be shy on how much money they make, but this last month I made $1500 just from sharing with my friends and family. This is drastically changing our families lives and our debt situation. Pretty cool and the training and help you get is amazing, and I would love to help you!!

I promised myself a swimsuit when this was over, so I need a deal – Do you have a suggestion on where to buy one?
