Ahh I'm so mad I'm still getting used to Live Writer.. And completely just wrote over my Week 1 post! :( :(
It had my measurements and everything so hoping I saved that somewhere.. anyways here's week 2!
Week 2 again was a SUCCESS!..
Well sorta. I have a confession. I cheated.
A couple times.. Oops.
We had a wedding to go to which I knew would be a little hard to stick to the challenge but I actually restrained myself pretty well!
I had no alcohol, and during cocktail and hor deourves I only had a few grilled veggies..
I did have a Caesar salad though with the cheese and dressing and the little fingerling potatoes that came with my chicken.
But we said no to the cake and didn’t have any of the bread.. So I thought I actually did pretty well.
I mean I could kiss this baby 24/7
Then when the A’s had their last playoff game I met my parents at the pizza parlor.. And sorta binged. This was the day I went into work and to SF so I didn’t really eat all day. When I got to dinner.. I had not 1 but 3 slices of pizza. It was AHH freaking MAZING! But TMI alert.. That made me so sick that night! For hours I was in and out of the bathroom. At first I called my mom to ask her if she felt sick too but I think my body went into shock or something! After eating so clean for 2 weeks.. all that cheese, bread, and grease my body couldn’t hang!
After that I went back to my clean eating ways and made a note to self that now I need to take it easy with not so good for you foods.
As for any weight loss- I’m now down 7lbs! Whoot whoot! (this was at the end of 2 weeks.. not when this is posting :)) I know I also mentioned I’d measure myself at Day 11 after the first phase, but I changed my mind. I’ve been stepping on the scale this whole challenge but I kind of wanted to save the measurements as a surprise at the end. I am thrilled with my results so far. I’ve really realized that the Nursing 24 day challenge isn’t all about weight loss. Since I’m not on some of the same supplements that are in the original 24day challenge I’m more taking this challenge as a jump start to my weight loss and to jump start a healthy lifestyle. One day when I’m done with nursing I will do this challenge again but with the MNS packs..
Overall, I’m feeling so great and have learned not to drink my Spark after 2pm! It’s no more than an 8oz of coffee in the caffeine dept. but I think with all the vitamins it’s a whole new energy! No crash! I’m obsesssssed.

I’m now on the home stretch of the challenge and honestly I’ve really stayed strong with eating clean because I want to see the best results. I know after the challenge is over I’ll fall back into some “unclean” eating ways.. I mean.. I just love cheese.. And bread.. I’ll have to buy some Carb-ease to help with that. And the holidays are coming up so I can’t wait to start baking. If you’re following me on Pinterest it may be a lil obvious with that one.
Speaking of the holidays..a’hem..
Ok I’m done.. Really though I just want everyone to experience Advocare because it’s really changing my life.
Ps. Notice the new look and name? I love it! I’m still fishing around for a new picture for up at the top so my old one (all pixilated) will have to do for right now. Also thank you so much for everyone’s ideas for the name! :)
