Like a 24 day challenge, that is!!
Last night, I worked out Frozen voice “for the first time innnn foreverrrrrr…” LOL I am such a kid, I LOVE that movie.
I also ate balanced meals and snacks all day and drank about 100 ounces of high quality H2O.
Why did I do all of this?
My bestie blessed me in December and purchased the AdvoCare 24 day challenge.
Why did he buy it for me?
Because, in life, everything either one of us becomes obsessed with HAS to pass on the other. It’s how our relationship has lasted and thrived for 15 years.
He KEPT talking and talking and TALKING about this cleanse. So much so, that I promised I would do it along with him in December.
Unfortunately, my life was all over the place in December so he had to do it without me. However, I had the pleasure of hearing him go off about it for 24 days straight.
I finally got it together and started yesterday as part of a national 24 day challenge.
Now #knowme and know that I have never, EVER featured a cleanse. I hate taking pills (especially if they aren’t natural and make me jittery) and I refuse to do a cleanse where I can’t eat like a normal person.
The AdvoCare cleanse allows you to eat…dun dun dun….CARBS. Mmmmm carbs :-p
Not only can I eat carbs, I get to eat 3 meals a day and snack in between. There are supplements that I have to take and this fiber drink that sigh is a STRUGGLE, but I’m all for it.
There’s also a really dope app that allows me to track food, water consumption, and it even has the options to set reminders so I don’t forget to take my supplements.
I’ve gone years hearing the dreaded “you’re so pretty…in the face…”
No comments on my body.
Not to say I don’t attract the fellas, but it was/is very disheartening for me to look in the mirror and see two tons of fun.
In the last few years, my weight has fluctuated and settled into a state where I can be described as curvy. I carry my weight well and everyone says “oh you don’t need to lose weight, you look fine the way you are.”
But, I’m not fine the way I am. My body is a temple and I have neglected it for years.
Not anymore, I’m determined to take my time and lose weight the healthy way in 2015.
I’m making the active decision to change my lifestyle because you only have one body. And, if I didn’t learn anything else in 2014, I learned I HAVE to take care of my body!
And, my bestie and I literally envision our bodies down the line. He will finally have his six-pack and I will prance around with the sexiest legs in a leotard/onesie like Beyonce. #owww
Lol our visions are a cackle but amazing and inspirational.
Twista’s “Like a 24” came up in my mix while I was working out last night and took me back to my senior year at Howard. I vividly remember my homegirl trying to show a group of us how to twerk to this song.
At the time, I totally suffered from no ass at all and wished my body was shaped like hers.
Fast forward 10 years, and I’m finally at a place where I know I can get my body in the best shape.
I know it’s early on in this cleanse but I am so excited. Clearly, excited as it inspired my first post of the new year :-)
If I’m feeling super inspired, I’ll post before and after pics when I finish.
