it just got real(ly intense)

February 11, 2015

So yesterday was the last day of Phase 1 of Advocare, which was the Cleanse Phase.  Thank GOD I do not have to take that nasty, nasty fiber drink anymore.  If anyone wants to know what it tastes like, just throw up into a cup and let it get room temperature, then drink.
(that may be an exaggeration, but still.  that's what it felt like to me.)

Today, I start the Max Phase.
Last night, when I opened up the boxes for this phase, I literally was like WHAT IN THE ACTUAL?????  There are like, vitamins out the wazoo!  (Ben said it looked like some kind of AIDS cocktail, which he was sort of right.)  Color packs, white packs, both packs, take before breakfast, take before lunch, take at lunch, etc... 
*blank stare*
*still blankly staring into space*

Once I pulled myself together enough to figure out what was happening, I legit put them into huge freezer bags and threw them in a tote to carry around with me.  How am I supposed to keep up with all of this?!  Thank God, once again, for the 24 Day Challenge app on my phone.  I'd be a hot mess, taking the wrong vitamins at the wrong time and jacking everything up.

I'm about to start my period, so I'm super bloated and moody.
This does not help with weight loss, in case y'all didn't know.
I find myself wanting to just eat every last thing in the house.  
I can't even right now.

I'm still sitting at 204 and if I'm being honest, I was really expecting to be under 200 by this point in the challenge.  But hey, it's okay.

I still have to remind myself of the old saying that no one wants to hear or talk about, "muscle weighs more than fat."  And I have been hitting the gym pretty hard, so hopefully that's what's happening.

Not much else has been happening around these parts.  I've been working late because a girl changed departments and I've been doing her job and my job until the new girl starts next Monday.  I really like being busy, so I've actually enjoyed it.

I also feel like it's time for a new look around this blog, but what else is new.  I reallllly need to learn some basic design skills so I don't have to pay every time, but oh well.  I guess it's okay for now, but every time I look at someone else's design I really want to change mine.  I have such a finicky personality.

Ok loves, I guess that's all she wrote for today!
(no pun intended...)

54 to go.
(but seriously, hurry up.)


  1. I was wondering how Advocare was going for you. I know you're killing it at the gym and giving it your all, so I hope you get to see those results soon! As for a new look, I agree with you - you definitely need something fresh!

  2. If I can figure out blog designs....then I know you can too!!! It just takes a little playing around :)

    I had to laugh at Ben's Aids Cocktail comment. Sounds like something Chris would have said! I hope that you see the results you want. I have been feeling quite discouraged lately. Gotta stick to it and push though, I know I know...

    Can't wait to see you soon lady!

  3. I get the same itch to redesign my blog every time I see something I like on someone else's. It's a curse. I could not deal with all those pills! I can barely take my vitamin gummies.

  4. I can so sympathize with you on wanting to be under 200. I know that has always been a huge deal for you (as it will be for me), but try and focus on the fact that you've lost 107 lbs... ONE HUNDRED AND SEVEN POUNDS. You've lost a teenage girl. Just remember that. 204 is only a number.
