Advocare 24 Day Challenge: Day 19

How am I on Day 19 already! Jeepers it’s going quick. I officially signed up to be an independent distributor yesterday. Go me! YAY! Here’s my recap:

Day 19
Breakfast:
MNS 3 Color Pack (30 mins prior)
Vanilla Meal Replacement Shake

Snack:
Apple w/peanut butter

Lunch:
MNS 3 Color Pack
MNS 3 White Packs
Butter lettuce salad with tuna, croutons, ranch and a side of baby carrots
Trenta Iced Tea from Starbucks
Salted Caramel Cake Pop

Snack:
none

Dinner:
OmegaPlex
10oz sirloin, baked potato w/sour cream, salad with ranch

Activity:
Crossfit-15 min AMRAP-Sumo High Pulls (45lbs) and Handwalk Pushups (20, 19, 18, 17, 16)
Steps-11,261 (5.2 miles)

Thoughts:
The salted caramel cake pop was a total impulse buy. Whoops. I shouldn’t have had it, but I’m trying not to think about it too much. I had a lot to do and it happened. Oh well. It really could be worse, I could’ve eaten salted caramel cake, like a whole cake, but I just had a little pop instead. Much better. However, I’ve noticed something with desserts. They really do set of a chain reaction of events, and make you CRAVE more and more sugar. It’s really crazy. I’m thinking I need to do a sugar detox one of these days. Yikes. Other than that things are going really good with this challenge. I no longer have issue with eating the same thing for lunch every day as long as I get to make something for dinner that’s different. Let me tell ya, the meal replacement shakes make my mornings so much easier as well. I have a very simple routine in the mornings now with a standard breakfast and lunch. It’s great. I’m hoping that after the challenge the habits continue.

Advocare 24 Day Challenge: Day 11

I’ve made it to the Max Phase people! I cannot believe it! Here is my recap.

Fuddruckers-Works burger (1/3lb, mushrooms, bacon, cheese), fries, Cherry Coke

Activity:

Thoughts:
That Cherry Coke was an AWFUL idea. Not only did it make my stomach hurt, BUT it kept me awake. That’s what I get for not drinking caffeine too late in the day. Whoops. Lesson learned. My dad picked the place we were going since we were going out to dinner for his work on my house. YAY windows! Hopefully the weather holds out and we can get them finished.
