24 Day Challenge

Years ago when I first decided to lose weight I was introduced to Advocare at a bootcamp I went to, they came in and told us all about the Herbal Cleanse
No dairy, no sugar, no processed food, no white bread.
Sounded like torture to me and I am not a believer in 'pills' for weight loss.
BUT several other people decided to do it, so I said I would too and it was hard. Real hard. 
I even gave up coffee for the 10 days.
Talk about cray-cray, I don't function well with out coffee.
I lost 10 pounds in 10 days though.

Since that time I've done the Herbal Cleanse twice, with meager results, probably because I had less weight to lose than I did the first time.
I also tried out the MNS Max 3 recently, this little gem right here is what gets me up at 5am everyday. I've never had this much energy!



A friend of mine wanted me to try the 24 Day Challenge.
I was hesitant ONLY because after a year stuck at this weight, I'm not sure ANYTHING can get me to lose those last 10.
I already eat healthy, especially lately, I've really cleaned up my bad habits.
Clean Eating really helped me to choose healthy snacks and get rid of those empty calories.
So, I decided to give it a go and let me tell you if I get over this hump it will be a miracle :)
BUT I will be ok it I don't lose weight, toning up is high on my list of wants, if I can get more muscle definition I'm all about it.



So, what is the 24 Day Challenge?
The first 10 days are the Cleanse Days.
You clean your body of nasty toxins by eating more veggies and no sugar or dairy.
You drink a fiber drink {which is a little gritty so I down mine with a straw}


You will take the herbal pills before bed, these will clean you out the next morning, if you know what I mean :)


The next 13 days are where you rev up your metabolism by taking the MNS Max E and use the Meal Replacement Shakes.
I've never used the shakes, so I'll be interested to see if they actually keep me full as well as my regular breakfast.


Starting Stats

Weight:  150
Arm  {10.5}

And just because she is cute.....



She was excited to be making cookies, but as someone on Instagram pointed out it's probably because she got to use real sugar!


Happy Tuesday!

PS> I was not paid to do this, this is my real and honest opinion on the product. Nothing is a miracle, in my experience these products only work if you are eating right and exercising!

  1. I did the AdvoCare Cleanse once and lost 7 pounds in the 10 days. I still can't drink Crystal Light Raspberry Ice because that's what I was told to drink the fiber in and that's what it reminds me of. :) I also used to take the Catalyst and loved it but haven't used their products in years so I will be interested to see how this goes for you!

  5. I can't WAIT to see the results. I may have to try this. I love your daughters facial expressions - she is charasmatic (spelling?)

  6. That picture cracks me up. :-) I'm going to share this post with Josh - he's been talking about wanting to do a cleanse for a while now. I get nervous though when it comes to taking things. He had really high kidney levels last time he went to the doc and had to stop taking his work out supplements (although I'm sure there's a big difference in what you're taking and his FDA banned Jack3D..).

  8. Get it girl! I'm anxious to see/hear your results! I'm down 5% body fat from my starting point (and that was with wedding food/beverages two weekends in a row). You'll rock this!

  9. My husband and I sell Advocare as well as thoroughly love the products. You should be able to drop at least 6-8 lbs doing this challenge if you follow it to a T. The cleanse drink with a straw is a must, no question.

    Also if you're wanting to add muscle definition & tone up even more you NEED to be taking Catalyst daily. I can't say enough amazing things about that product.

    I can't wait to read about this journey!

  16. Totally meant to comment on this yesterday...

    You said you've been the same weight for a year. Is that true? Because I've only been reading you for a few months now, but I swear to GOODNESS that you've totally shrunk in that time. You were small when I first found your blog but lately you've looked tiny tiny in your pics!
