Every Pound is a Victory

In my post on Tuesday, I mentioned I had recently lost 6 lbs.

Which may not seem like a lot, but dudes, if you’ve ever tried losing weight you know that’s not the case. Every pound is a victory. Every pound gone is punch in the face of fat, and that feels pretty damn good.

Except on days when chili-cheese fries are involved. Those are the days that I’m like “COME TO ME FAT! ALLOW ME TO MAKE ROOM FOR YOU IN MY THIGHS, FOR I LOVE THEE!” #truetalk

Anyway, back to losing 6 lbs. You know, the 6 lbs I lost in only 10 days without having the flu, or starving myself, or cutting a deal with the devil all because of this:

It’s a 10 day cleanse. I know, I know, it sounds like I’m selling out but I’m not. It legit worked and I wasn’t (forgive my vulgarity) shitting up a storm because of it. Have any of you ever tried a cleanse that hasn’t had you reading the back of the same shampoo bottles for hours at a time?

Yeah, didn’t think so.

Basically, the guidelines for this are as follows:

Day 1-3, and Days 8-10: Fiber Drink. They have two flavors, Citrus & Peaches and Cream. I got Peaches & Cream and while it was not exactly wonderful going down, it was loads better than the Citrus (I tried this right after Lillie but I didn’t complete it).

Days 4-10: ProBiotic Restore Ultra. These are capsules that promote happy bacteria in your intestinal tract, helps with digestion and balances you out.

Days 1-7: Herbal Cleanse Tablet. Helps rid your body of crap.

It also says for best results to drink water, eat fresh fruits & veggies and avoid fried foods and that if you do this 80% of the time, you’ll see results.

I’d say I did it for about 60% of the time, which kind of pisses me off because if I would have done 80% I wonder if I would have lost more. But dudes, weekends. That’s all that needs to be said about my 60%.

It’s been a week since I’ve finished this, and the weight is still off. I didn’t change my diet drastically, although I did start drinking more water and thanks to another great product, Spark, I’ve been able to cut my soda intake/addiction to like nothing.

IMG_1869 I’ll write more about Spark in another post (because it’s awesome enough that it deserves that much.) Even my husband (who hates all things that are even perceived to be healthy) loves it.

In fact, he loves the products we’ve used already so much he let me become a distributor.

What’s that mean?

I now sell Advocare products, not because I have too or some sponsor asked me too, but because I legit like the stuff and I really think it will help me lose weight/meet my running goals. (They even have gels!)

I actually bought a domain. I don’t even have one for my blog that I’ve been writing on for years.

Here’s to a great weekend!

I've been thinking about Spark--heard it's pretty awesome! Maybe I'll order from you when I get settled in my new place?

Also, WOOHOO! Congrats on the 6lb weight loss, lover!

Dude. I've been looking into this! I was pretty hesitant until I started seeing all kinds of people I actually know doing it and looking awesome. I'll take the info for sure. Because I'm still stuck in this damn plateau and NOTHING will happen and I've been working my ass off!

I'm interested in Spark. I just can't decide on a flavor.

I also like the idea of this cleanse. It might help reset my body and help me start to make good choices again.

I would do this if I thought I wouldn't barf. But I most certainly would because once time I tried a super healthy smoothie and threw it up all over Matt. It was a low point in our marriage.
