Today I had to do a workout that did not have anything to do with a barbell or pull-up bar. My hands hurt! Thankfully Invictus had a good workout just for that!

Workout of the Day
In teams of two, with only one person working at a time, complete the following:
200 Wall Ball Shots
600 Meter Overhead Carry
200 Push-ups
600 Meter Overhead Carry
During carry, you must perform 3 burpees* each every time you switch the partner carrying the load.
*Burpees may be completed inside the gym at the end of each lap around the block.

I cut everything in half since I did not have a partner. I used a 14lb wallball and a 25 lb plate for my overhead carry. I did 3 burpees every time I had to rest my arms on my overhead carry. It was a good SWEATY workout!

Today is Day 3 of my 24 day challenge. I’m getting used to the fiber drink….but it’s still my least favorite part. Thankfully I can chase it with my yummy chocolate Advocare meal replacement shake.

Tonight I went to an Advocare “mixer” to learn more about their products and get a better feel for the company. I’m not going to lie to you, I used to be a huge critic of supplement companies like Advocare, Isagenix, Zija etc….(some of them are still a crock of crap). The only reason I started my first 24 day challenge was to lose just 5 lbs because my wedding dress was just a bit snug around my hips. (I was being stubborn and didn’t want to have to do a bunch of alterations). I started the challenge because I needed some kind of structured program to get me on track with clean eating. With the Advocare cleanse you can still eat! There is no way I could do a juice cleanse where you barely eat and mostly do fluids. At the end of my 24 days I actually had to have my wedding dress taken in! I know I said I didn’t want to have to do alterations but it was still pretty awesome I had made progress. Before Advocare I had hit a plateau. I wasn’t gaining or losing weight but I wasn’t getting making any gains in my fitness either. I had healthy most of the time but it was interesting to see how many bad choices I was making in my diet. I also used to be a huge coffee drinker. I love coffee. With Advocare’s Spark I barely drink coffee anymore and I have way more energy than I did with coffee. I drink coffee every once in a while, not because I need it but because I just enjoy the taste of coffee. My husband was an even bigger sceptic of product companies. He is now a believer of Advocare, he loves his Spark!
