But my will to eat crap has been stronger than my will to give it all up. I just can't seem to get motivated.
Well, about a week or so ago I saw a post from my neighbor that she has been doing a challenge and drinking an energy drink called Spark. I've heard of Spark from another friend who was selling Advocare at the time.
I contacted her about buying some because I felt like it might help pick me up in the afternoons when my energy levels go to ZERO around 2 pm. She directed me to another close neighbor who hooked me up with a variety box.
Let's just say that after a few days, I was hooked on Spark. Good energy without jitters, and I had no problem going to sleep at night.
Fast forward to yesterday. My neighbor next door has signed up with Advocare to be a distributor, and my neighbor across the street had a get-together yesterday morning about the business and the products. She invited everyone to join her on what they call a 24-day Challenge and I signed up!
Now, let me be honest. I've tried several direct sales weight loss plans... Isagenix and Body by Vi to name two. Neither of them worked out well for me, and it made me very skeptical. But I also didn't invest any money with either of those plans (I was offered them for free) so I didn't have anything to lose, really.
But for this Advocare challenge, I'm financially invested. And I'm very excited to try it. I am praying that this is the boost that I need. A jumpstart to get back on track for good. Summer is so close and also the move to Jacksonville. I figure that 24 days will be well spent if I am doing something to get me back to where I need to be.
Hopefully my challenge kit will be here by Wednesday of this week. I will start it the day after I get it. My neighbor introduced me to a lot of good recipes yesterday at her get together and I am also going to start looking for ones of my own. I am going to give up coffee for 24 days and only drink a spark in the mornings.
I am going to give it 100%. I'm going to do everything I can to make this work. This is totally different from anything that I've done in a long time.
