My Advocare Journey

My Advocare Journey

I was explaining my Advocare success story to my cousin when she said, “Hey, why don’t you blog about it?  I’m always looking up blogs for recipes, advice and tips.”  So, now that it is 2015 and one of the items on my bucket list is to journal more, here I am.

Let’s start with 2014.  In 2014, I lost 24 pounds.  Amidst dental school, stress, terrible situation after terrible situation, and undoubtably the worst year of my life, I managed to lose 24 pounds in a healthy and sustainable way.  This accomplishment is not only one to cheer about, but my one true positive achievement from 2014.  So here is a little glance at my results.

This is me, before and after 2014

I could not be more proud of my transformation.

As I continue to use Advocare products and complete cleanses and challenges, I have started recording what I have been doing.  From meal prep, products, to finding fitness centers when on the road – I have it catalogued and it will be appearing here in my blogs.

So, I ask you to join me on this journey – will you continue to follow my posts?  Or will you be the one to reach out and contact me about joining my Advocare team?

Eat well and exercise.

Amen.

Stay tuned as my journey unfolds!

In the name of beauty, and whatever that means to you, xoxo.

Controlling My Destiny, Part 1

I am a survivor.

Five years ago, I was hit by a drunk driver.  The impact of the collision caused me to suffer from a concussion that took over two years to heal.  Ever since that impact, I have suffered from migraines.  Migraines from every, single little possible insult.  And I was sick and tired of it.

I couldn’t work out. Studies maxed me out.  Not enough sleep, not enough water, not enough food, and the list goes on… would each induce a migraine.  For five years migraines had taken away from my quality of life.  Until now.

After seeking much medical help, treatment and therapy, I took an additional step on my own.  I chose to take charge of my situation, after tirelessly treating my condition for three years.  I found a company and products that not only worked for my overall health, but also ones that I utilized to combat my migraines.

I now work out four times a week at 7 am.  A feat unheard of if you know anything about me.  Simply typing that sentence excites me.  How far I have come.

The company that helped me to start ,and continue, working out again is Advocare.  I currently use three different products just so that I can get up and work out each morning, and then make it through the day migraine-free.

I start my morning with Spark.  I use O2 Gold prior to my workout.  And I end my workout with Rehydrate.

I am smiling as I type this, proud of how far I have come and how much better I feel each and every day.

For anyone who battles migraines, I highly recommend you try this.  Please comment or contact me – this has changed my life!  Enclosed is my link to the Advocare site.  Visit it.  Contact me to learn more :).  We can take control of our destinies.  We can take back our lives.
