Trucking Along

{Man, posts like this just make me so nervous! Despite being proud of how far I’ve come, I’m not proud of where I started. For that reason, putting this out there is a very vulnerable thing to do. But vulnerable can be good. Play nice, folks…}

So, at the end of this post I stated that it was just going to keep getting better, which is a bold statement when you’ve struggled to maintain results in the past. But you know what? It has!

Here, take a look!







Since I ended my 24 Day Challenge I’ve lost another 6.5 pounds making my weight loss to date a little over 14 pounds! Guys, I’m wearing jeans in a size I’ve not worn since high school. That’s mind boggling to me. Truly. And, dare I say, I’m starting to see muscle definition in my abs. MY ABS! That’s not something I EVER thought would happen. Ever. Truly. Never ever. (I’ll stop now before I sound like a Taylor Swift song.)

I’ve accomplished all of this by staying on AdvoCare products and following the eating guidelines from the final phase of the Challenge. Well, I follow them most of the time. Sometimes nachos happen, but life deserves it’s indulgences! And the beauty of that is I know those indulgences won’t kick me off the bandwagon or totally effect my body because my metabolism is cranking thanks to the products and a clean diet most of the time.

But honestly, I could care less about the weight loss. What I’m more interested in is how my body composition is changing. We all know that muscle weighs more than fat and I plan on continuing to carve out those little abs I love so dearly! So I’m going to do a Bod Pod scan here next week to determine my lean muscle mass to fat mass ratio and get some advice on what I can do to keep converting the bad stuff to the good stuff.

All in all I feel really encouraged and hopeful, which is such an amazing feeling! I’m telling you, these products work and I’m so grateful to have them and this company in my life!

  • About Me

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
