Week 7

I am really digging this Advocare 24 day challenge! I am down another 3.5 lbs this week - woohoo.. This Max Phase that I am currently in seems to be working for me.. The only thing I don't really like is the number of pills that I have to take, however the results are worth it - seriously worth it!

I have not been as into bootcamp as I need to be.. There are a few reasons.. First is that I have had this stupid sore throat and cough for the past 2 weeks - grrrr... Second is that my grandfather is not doing well... like not going to live much longer.... I was at the hospital until almost 11 and getting up at 5 AM didn't sound like the best idea, especially b/c I was up until after 1:00 AM.

That is OK, this is a new week. I have boot camp and soccer tomorrow, Tuesday is my day off; Wednesday is boot camp in the morning and then I have a mavericks game that night (1st regular season game of 2013-2014 season), day off Thursday; Friday bootcamp; Saturday 5K.

Oh yeah. almost forgot, we did a 5K yesterday and we ran the whole thing in 38:25... Not the best time, but that was the first of at least 6 we are doing through the end of the year.....

Have a great week! XOXO

Week 6 Update

I am LOVING the Advocare 24 day challenge!!I had gained a couple of the pounds I had lost back, and from last Saturday morning through this morning I have lost 7.2 pounds!! That's right, 7.2! I am stoked.. The most important thing for me is that I have eaten very well this week! It has not been the easiest (especially passing up cake and ice cream at work Wednesday) but it has been worth it.. I don't even really feel the desire to cheat on my clean eating..

I am a bit nervous for after the challenge.. I know a few people that have done this and after the challenge have gained back what they lost. Now, I am not sure if they continued to eat clean, but I went ahead and emailed my boot camp leader to ask her suggestions after the challenge.. Now, I am only on day 7 (of 24), but I want to be prepared with whatever it is I need to get this sorted out... I am so focused and ready to kick this transformations butt! HA!

I twisted my ankle last Monday night at my soccer game.. It was really sore all week, I only worked out Monday (twice) and Friday morning... I took this weekend off b/c next week is cardio week at camp.. My goal is to attend camp Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings this week. I have soccer Monday night and then a 5K on Saturday with my sister and her family.

So I am super excited to see how this week's weight loss with getting a full week of workouts in - so fun! Also, I hit the second phase of my challenge Thursday!

What are your plans this week??? XOXO

Week 5 - Advocare 24 Day Challenge (Day 1)

Day 1 of the Advocare 24 Day Challenge kicked off this morning. I am excited to see how plays out... The only issue I will have is on October 30th, I have a Mavericks game and won't be able to eat my Chicken Tenders (BOO) and then the next day is Halloween (no candy for me - double boo)..

I am going to give this my all. My new boot camp offers this "Transformation Challenge". There have been several through out 2013, and I have jumped in on the last on they are doing (it started today and ends Jan 4th). The ultimate winner wins $5,000 and then next 5 win $1,000 and a group win free boot camp for 6 months. Really, any of those sound appealing to me!! I know I can do it, just have to be laser focused through the rest of the year which could prove to be a bit challenging with the holidays coming up...

I weighed myself of Saturday b/c it was the kick off for this 4 week boot camp, so I am stoked to see where I am at on November 6th (day 24). I am shooting for 15 lbs!

Let's do this!

Week 4

Yesterday I played in my college alumni soccer game. It was so fun to catch up with my friends from college, best part were the beers we shared afterwards!!

I stayed the same this week - which I am rather thankful for.... I have been on a 'bender' since Thursday of last week, so I am back and refocused today. I am actually going to join Jenny Craig this week. I need help making sure I am eating not only balanced meals, but a balanced daily regimen of food. I am very excited. It is going to add some cost for us, but it is worth it in my mind b/c I need to get that part under control.

I can eat within my WW allotment every day, but just because a package of M&Ms are in the budget point wise, doesn't mean I should eat them... So, I am going to try this for a month and see how it goes. I will sign up over next weekend - wish me luck!

I also re-signed with Transformation Bootcamp, they run camps for 4 weeks, so this is the last week of this session and I am set and ready to go next Monday!

Tonight kicks off the beginning of the Dallas Mavericks 2013-2014 season, so I am looking forward to the game tonight!!

Go Mavs!!


Week 3

Totally forgot to post yesterday.. I am down another 2.3 this week - woohoo!! Not sure how that happened as I was HORRIBLE on Thursday.... But I will take it.

I am a full week into my new bootcamp and I am LOVING it! Seriously, I am exhausted after workouts and feel SO strong at the same time.. I feel so revitalized and I am stoked about it.

I was great tracking Monday-Wednesday last week. My goal is to track every day.. Baby steps, right??
