Hello sweet blogging buddies! I hope everyone had a GREAT weekend and a super fab Monday. Coach and I had a great weekend full of The Hunger Games, and spring cleaning!
I know many of you have just about gotten sick of me Facebooking about AdvoCare. However, this is not me asking you to buy, or me being paid by someone to sell a product. I have not (I wish) been asked to share anything with anyone. This is my choice! I would like to update you on my overall success with losing weight, and making a lifestyle change.
Here is my story:
I got married last May. I felt that I was in great shape. (I ran a half marathon the week before.) I stepped on the scale the day before my wedding and I weighed 171. I felt good, and I was happy with my number.
Then, I went on a honeymoon. Then I went to the beach. Then I got a Kitchen Aid mixer. Then I taught myself how to make a cheesecake. Then I ate cheesecake daily. Then I moved to Augusta. Then I realized it was TOO HOTT during the summer to run. Then I topped the scale at the HEAVIEST I have ever been. Meanwhile, I was constantly working on school stuff, and going through the hardest semester of college EVER. I was not doing well at all.
New Years came and I decided that I was going to get back into running, and give up my love for soda. I always heard of folks dropping Pepsi and dropping 20 lbs. Yeah, not me. I ran daily, and had 0 sodas. No weight loss. BOOOO. Sure, I felt better. However, when the scale doesn't move there really isn't any motivation to run.
Then I started listening to all of the great stuff my super healthy friend Danielle was saying about AdvoCare. So, I googled it. Then I "Pinterested" it. I decided to give it a try. Last Monday BC and I decided to clean out the cupboards, clean out the fridge, and get some vitamins in our bodies. We measured ourselves, and weighed ourselves. We wrote everything down in a journal. I am about to share my details.
Last Monday, March 19, 2012 I weighed 180 lbs.
|Please focus on me. I know my cousin is BEAUTIFUL and so is my nephew... however, this is my blog. Plus, she has a boyfriend! :) Plus, this picture was taken on March 5, 2012.|
I have spent a full 7 days taking the AdvoCare vitamins, drinking Spark rather than coffee, and eating clean.
Here is what I have for breakfast.
|The Green Monster. AKA Spinach Smoothie. SOOO GOOD!|
Here is what I have for lunch.
|I never use bags. I left my lunchbox at school. :( But, it is a PB sandwich, grapes, grape tomatoes, 2 hard boiled eggs, and Greek yogurt. LOVE IT ALL!|
I go to spin class at 5am. I teach ALL day. (22 little 4 year olds.) Then I come home and run. I average about 3-6 miles each day. Then, BC and I help each other cook dinner.
|This was dinner for 2. I love grilled chicken, grilled corn, and grilled squash! :)|
After we eat, we both go for a 2 mile walk.
I drink about 1.5 gallons of water a day.
I have one glass of Spark. (For energy, and my caffeine fix.)
I have a glass of chocolate milk after I run. (Sweet tooth fix.)
I weighed in today.
Here I am....
Down to 170.5. I have also lost 2 inches off of my stomach.
There is actually a funny story about these pants. I bought them on my birthday last year. I wore them until about May. Then I put them on in August, I couldn't button them. :(
Today I wore them with pride. Next time I wear them, I'll wear them with a belt!
I have told LOTS of my friends about this great stuff! I am the proof! I cannot wait to update my blog next week with more of my results. I have never felt so great. I have TONS of energy. I love the changes that my body is making. I am seriously addicted to changing my body. If you were thinking about trying a product to jump start your plan to lose weight: here it is! HOWEVER, I would not consider it if you are not looking to make a lifestyle change. If I can do it, you can! I swear, nobody loves cheesecake like this kid!
