Day 5 || AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge. Tips on the Fiber Drink

Hi Friends!

Well, here we are! 5 days into the AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge— So far, so good.  Really good, actually!  At first, I was intimidated by the Fiber Drink, but by the third day of the Drink, I took it like a champ!  So if you are in the same boat, read on!

A couple days ago, I told you about my Day 1 of the Challenge and also talked about the AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge app available for Android and iTunes.  I’m still using it, and so is Bret.  I set it up to give me notifications when I’m supposed to take any supplements, and that has helped keep me accountable.  I also can track how much water I drink in a day.

Before starting the challenge, I was a very minimal water drinker.  I had my coffee in the morning, went to class and work, came home, and maybe had half a glass of water or milk with supper.  Needless to say, I was NOT drinking enough water!  Already, I’m now drinking at least 8 glasses of plain water a day, which is a HUGE improvement for me!

The first three days of the challenge require the Fiber Drink in the morning. Now I know what you are thinking…. 
“Fiber
.….ehhh am I going to be visiting the porcelain throne all day??”  

And the short answer is **drum roll please**  NOPE!  The great thing about this Fiber Drink is that is not going to keep you locked away every day you take it. Go about your every day life, and enjoy the health!

We were told to mix the Fiber Drink powder with about 4 ounces of orange or apple juice and drink it fast.  We mixed it with both water and orange juice, and our consensus was that with orange juice it tasted much better than with regular water.  Be sure to drink it fast, though!  Fiber is designed to absorb, so naturally, it will begin to expand and absorb when in contact with liquid.  If it sits too long, it turns into an oatmeal consistency so….drink it quick and mix it with orange or apple juice!  Bret uses a blender bottle to mix his Fiber Drink, and I use a disposable plastic bottle and both work great!  Remember to mix it up a lot, then drink fast 🙂

As of right now, the biggest change since starting the challenge for me is that I am sleeping so much better at night.  I’ve gone from taking at least an hour to falling asleep each night, to now falling asleep within minutes!  I wake up rested and ready to start my day with much more energy than I normally do.

Bret told me that his energy level has increased a ton! He loves Spark, and it is great to drink while he is at work each night.

Happy Challenging!

Day 1 || AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge

Hi Friends!

My man and I recently signed up to be AdvoCare Distributors, and along with that, we decided to start the AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge!  (click the link to find out more!)

Today is our first day on the 24 Day Challenge—- I woke up and started my morning with the Mango-Strawberry Spark drink (yum!) and a Catalyst.  After half an hour, I drank my Herbal Cleanse Fiber Drink.  It was….very fiber-y 😉   Later today, I’ll have another catalyst pill before my lunch and dinner, an OmegaPlex with dinner, then finish off the night with an Herbal Cleanse. And of course, I’ll be drinking lots of water!!

With my challenge, I’m not necessarily looking to lose weight (although many people do, and that would be an added bonus, right? 😉 ). Rather, I am looking to have a healthier lifestyle.  Anymore, I know my eating habits are subpar, and my energy levels can be described as: blechhhh. I am using this challenge to do a whole-body reset, to jump start a healthier and more active lifestyle.  Do you want to join me?

I downloaded the AdvoCare 24 day challenge app (available on Android and iTunes) to help keep me accountable for taking everything at the correct time.  So far, it has been very helpful!  The app gives you a timeline of what to take and when, then allows you to check it off once it is completed.  For me, that is extremely helpful as I can be pretty forgetful!  I can see what I will need with me during the day; then after I take it, I can check it off.  I love lists, so I feel very accomplished when I can check things off!  It also gives you a way to track how much water you have drank during the day, which is good for me.  I am the person who can get by on one bottle of water a day.  I know I need to drink more water, but I just get busy and forget.  Silly, I know.  I’m looking forward to this water tracker.

If you have this app—let me know and we can be friends on it!  Just drop me a comment or an email at treasuresfromthehutch@gmail.com  .  I also have created a group that you can join once we become AdvoFriends 🙂

Check back in a few days for my update on how the 24 Day Challenge is going with my man and I.  Shoot me an email at treasuresfromthehutch@gmail.com if you want more information, or are interested in starting your own 24 Day Challenge!!

Happy Challenging!
