Day 19 || Advo-Update

Hi Friends!

It is Bret’s and my 19th day of the AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge, which means we only have 5 days left.  I can’t believe it!  When we began, I thought it would take such a long time to complete.  I was really unsure if it would do anything for me personally, and honestly wasn’t expecting much for myself.   (Well, I was wrong!)

Okay, here’s the scoop on why I did the 24 Day Challenge.  I mainly had 2 reasons:
#1: I wanted to be healthier.  I wanted to eat better and fuel my body properly, so I thought this might jumpstart me into those healthy habits.

——-and——–

#2 (which is more of the real reason):  I was the skeptic.  I heard about the results, I saw the pictures, and I read the testimonials.  Sure I was really happy for those people who were successful with the challenge!  BUT, I wanted to see if it really would work on me.  I gained a few pounds back in the year since my man and I had been married that I wanted to eventually lose, but I figured I would only lose about half of it on these 24 days.

Okay if I’m being honest, I didn’t expect to lose any weight actually.
***Spoiler Alert**** I did!
 
In the past 19 days, I can tell my body is changing for the better.  I’m eating much healthier, and my cravings for sweets has nearly diminished.
Confession: I caved and had my favorite type of hot chocolate the other day.    Shame, shame, everybody knows my name 😦
Realization:  I could barely drink half of it because it tasted TOO sweet!  At first I was frustrated because if I was going to splurge on that, I was going to enjoy it!  But then I was happy because I realized that my eating preferences no longer enjoyed sweets like they used to. 🙂
I haven’t weighed or measured myself for a couple days, but I can absolutely tell a difference in how my clothes fit from two weeks ago to now.  On Day 25, I’ll post my actual results, along with my plan of action to continue the healthy habits I’ve formed by doing the 24 Day Challenge.
