I'm linking up this week with the sweet Katie from Queen of the First Grade Jungle for her Work It Wednesday.
Last year I started following Katie's fitness post on Instagram and decided it was time to get in shape. I hired an on-line trainer and lost about 25 or more pounds. Everyone was telling me how great I looked and asking how I was doing it. But the whole time I didn't see these big changes that everyone else were seeing. I would start to feel really good about my weight loss and then I'd go try something on and be really depressed. What I saw in the mirror was the same old me. Even though I was wearing smaller clothes and the scale showed a much smaller number I didn't feel it. I hated the diet the trainer had me on. I felt like I could only eat fish, chicken and broccoli.
Did it work?
Was I happy?
I spent my WHOLE summer counting macros and stressing about the weekly progress pictures I was going to have to send to him. This wasn't for me. And after my time with him ran out I slowly gained just about all that weight back.
Fast forward to this summer and I'm working on my fitness again but there is a big change. I saw Katie posting about AdvoCare and I took the plunge and signed up as a distributor under her. Then I bought the 24 day Challenge. Wish I could say I did great on it but I bombed it:( I did lose 6 pounds and 3 inches on the cleanse phase. I can't wait for me to be able to give it another try.
As of now I am working on finding what works for me. I have found these items to really help me.
I drink spark everyday!
I get up at 3:45 am to get to the gym by 4 am.
Spark helps me wake up and keeps me motivated with great energy.
|Spark to save the day!|
I take Catalyst to in the morning before breakfast.
It gives me energy and helps my muscles.
I have a really hard time not eating ALL day long.
So this next product has been a life saver.
Crave Check Sr
I'm still working on the timing to make sure I have the whole day covered for appetite control.
Right now I take one around 8-9 am and then again around 1-2 pm.
When I'm hungry for a snack I try really hard to grab fruit or veggies but sometimes those just don't cut it. I really love Questbars for a sweet snack or dessert. This one is my current favorite!!
I'm thinking about having my macros recalculated and giving that a try again but just not sure yet.
What helps you stay on track with being healthy?
I'd love to hear about your favorite healthy items or tips.
I need all the help I can get:)
