Advocare 24 day challenge: days 4-7

Hi guys and HAPPY Pre-Friday!

I'm a little late posting this, but my parents were in town yesterday and today for my sister's last wedding dress fitting! Sooo exciting! It's all coming together and I can't wait for the big day! Yay!

These last 4 days have been so awesome. I feel great- motivated, lean, energized, etc. The list goes on... I'm trying not to jump on the scale every day, but it's really hard when you wake up feeling skinny and tone...I'm so anxious to see how much weight I drop!

Anyways, without further's a quick overview of the Advocare Products for days 4-7, plus my meal plans and a little bit on my workouts.

Working Out.
This past week has been incredible, to say the least. On day 1, I had NO motivation or energy to workout. I was literally exhausted by 7pm. Slowly though, by day 3, I found more energy. On day 3, which happened to be Saturday, I went for a morning run and felt GREAT- light on my feet and energized. I ran my first run with an average pace of under 10 mins since giving birth! Yes! Then, on day 4 (Sunday), I decided to go for another run in the evening. Again, felt so good. It's such a great feeling to get your running groove back. Camp Gladiator started back this week, so I went to CG on Tuesday evening and felt awesome (once again). It was 105 degrees out, yall, and I still managed to feel awesome. My sister said I even looked better, at the excersizes and just overall.

I plan to do CG twice per week, and shoot for 1 additional run (2 would be great). I'm hoping this blog will keep me accountable.

I hope this helps. I'll check back in after day 10, when the cleanse portion ends and the max phase starts. Wish me luck!! xoxo
