my husband coaches the roller derby league at our rink.  one of the teams, the tulsa derby league all stars, recently competed at the USARS regionals in dubuque, iowa.  they came out on top and will compete at nationals in california in december.

first day of school

hudson attended a mother’s day out program last year.  since my babies are so close in age i kept ella home with me to have some one-on-one time with her.  so, this year is her first year attending such a program.

here are some photos we took the morning of the first day of school:

results from advocare challenge and meal plan

 

i am on day 13 of the advocare 24 day challenge.  so far i have gone down a size in jeans (finally back in my skinny jeans!), lost 2 inches in my hips, an inch around my belly, and a couple of pounds as well.

a lot of friends have asked what the diet looks like on the advocare challenge.  it’s not some gimmick-y diet.  it’s truthfully clean eating.  here is a sample of my diet plan:

breakfast:  chocolate meal replacement shake (i LOVE these.  i have a major sweet tooth and i look forward to one every morning).  on days that i don’t have a meal replacement shake i’ll have egg whites with spinach and maybe some fruit.

mid-morning snack:  banana with a tablespoon of natural almond butter.

lunch:  salad topped with chicken.  i vary it up by adding different fruits or vegetables.

afternoon snack:  apple and natural almonds.

dinner:  a grilled chicken breast with lightly steamed vegetables and brown rice.  another favorite has been turkey chili or i mix chicken, onion, and peppers with a homemade fajita seasoning and serve it over brown rice and black beans.  i like doubling servings for dinner so i can have leftovers for lunch.  i’m not one who likes to eat salad for lunch every day. :)

when you sign up for the challenge you’ll receive a sample menu as well as a list of food items allowed and not allowed.  like i said before i was eating similarly to this for a little over a month in conjunction with working out 6 days a week with little to no results.  the advocare supplements have really helped me kick it up a notch and see some exciting results.

just wanted to do an official post with some FAQ information so that i can refer to it when people ask me about it.

also, i chose the MNS3 packets (for weightloss) as well as the chocolate shake:
