I got my Advocare Distributor Kit today! Looks like fedex dropped it off at our house while we were at my inlaws. The packaging definitely catches your eye.

I opened it up (holding back two children and a dog that are all very interested in packages), and it’s instant Christmas! 12 bottles of Slam and 10 pouches (servings) of Spark! I grabbed one of the Bowl Berry Slams…hadn’t tried those yet…instant energy w/ a different vibe than Spark. I’m thinking I will try the Cherry flavor of Spark tomorrow AM.

Ok, so I lifted the level of products in my distributor kit…and there was a folder of info underneath:

– Advocare Sales Toles Folder

– pack of 24 Day Challenge pamphlets

– pack of Advocare Opportunity pamphlets

– pack of sales receipts

– 2013 Solutions For Your Success DVD

– 2013 Product Catalog

– Advocare Distributor Workbook

– Impact Magazine

The magazine is fantastic. It is going to be great to show to clients. It’s a special edition, celebrating Advocare’s 20th anniversary.I have only turned thru the pages, but I can already tell it’s going to be a good read.

I am not a big athlete. Not really a big spectator of sports either. HOWEVER, I am someone is concerned with wellness and energy. Did you know Advocare is AS MUCH for me, than any athlete out there?

HERE IS A LITTLE TEST TO SEE WHO REALLY READS MY BLOGS, AND WHO WANTS TO GIVE ME JUST A WEE BIT OF TIME TO LET YOU KNOW WHAT ADVOCARE CAN DO FOR YOU. FOR THE FIRST FIVE PEOPLE THAT CONTACT ME, STARTING NOW…I WILL MAIL YOU A FREE SAMPLE OF SPARK. IN RETURN, I WILL ASK YOU FOR YOUR OPINION AFTER YOU HAVE USED YOUR SPARK…THAT’S IT. NO STRINGS ATTACHED. FEEL FREE TO SHOOT ME AN EMAIL WITH YOUR CONTACT INFO.

That Plankin’ Fiber!

ImageImage

https://www.advocare.com/130617156/

The first two days of my cleanse phase…I had a bit of trouble drinking the Fiber drink. Let’s just say, I did not find it to be as yummy as the Spark. I think in my first challenge blog, I said something like “suck it up…your poops will thank you”. Yesterday morning was WAY harder than the first day. Honestly, I put too much water in it. I searched around for tips on successfully drinking your Fiber drink. I stumbled upon a how to video, and the lady demonstrating recommended putting a bit of orange juice in with the water…when mixing up your Fiber drink.

I had to go to Target yesterday afternoon…I picked up some of their OJ.Image I was eager to ‘taste the difference’. However, I had to wait until this morning.

I had a good conversation with a friend last night…we ended up talking about the yoga position called plank. Image I think the official plank position has your front supported by your hands….I cheated with this pose and used my elbows to support. WOWZER! Just 10 seconds, and you feel it. My friend said it really works your core…just doing the plank throughout the day in bits and pieces….well, it can be great for you! I can handle that…I just planked.

This morning’s Fiber drink was AN AMAZING improvement from the previous two days. I did a little OJ, water (about 10 oz total liquid) and the Fiber packet. Mixed it up…chugged it. SO much better, so much easier to drink without cringing.

Happy Friday!!

Merbaby

Image

Merbaby aka Merlin aka Merfin, came to us with VERY dry skin. It seems that German Shepherds and mixes with GSD are known to have super alkaline skin…prone to doggy dandruff. I started off by giving Merlin fish oil pills in his food: that worked GREAT! Really helped to clear up the dander/dandruff etc.

Eventually, I ran out of the fish oil pills. I had a GIANT amount of vitamins left over from when I tried to make cat food…that failed by the way. Here’s what I started using instead of the fish oil pills….Solid Gold Sea Meal Image. I sprinkled the recommended amount in his food in the AM and in the PM. After a few days…I still saw a pretty big amount of dandruff.

Next idea came while I was at Trader Joe’s. I LOVE TRADER JOE’S BY THE WAY. I grabbed a bottle of spray olive oil. Image I remembered that my vet said I could saturate a piece of bread with oil and put it in with his food. The spray olive oil is something we can use in our kitchen, not just for Merlin…so it’s a great buy!

What I do now, gets good results….hardly any dandruff: Solid Gold vitamins and olive oil spray. The solid gold sea meal vitamins get sprinkled over Merlin’s dry food (Nutrisorce grain free lamb). Then, I add a bit of water. Last, I spray a coating of olive oil spray on the food mixture.

Merbaby is a happy boy!

I have to write a blog about his shedding issue too! I have made headway in that area, thank god!

It’s Been A Good Day!

Image

You know…I actually had a good day today! I had a good (tasty and healthy) breakfast, a snack, a substantial lunch, another snack…and dinner at China Buffet. I thought about everything that I ate today. By some grace of God, I didn’t succumb to the voice inside my head saying “eat your children’s chocolate that they got at a birthday party”.

I have been peeing like a pregnant race horse today…yep, drinking LOTS of water. I am trying to drink water constantly throughout the day. It is recommended during the 24 Day Challenge.

I have not magically lost 50 lbs in a day…but I can honestly say I feel good! I had a good day, all day.

Cheers to taking caring of your self!

Nite nite,

Antonia

On Another Note

ImageImage

I think Dish TV hates me. It’s been raining A LOT here in Rochester NY. I understand that the satellite will quite when there’s a giant amount of snow…but why does is die when there are just a few rain drops? Dish died on Sunday night, so we lost The Killing and Mad Men. Then…it died on Monday…lost again. We have another chance to get Mad Men tonight, and then we have to wait until Sunday AM for The Killing. Neither of them are on Dish’s on demand either!! I love the price of our Dish TV bill….BUT I think they hate me. 😦

MOTHER NATURE IS A BITCH

ImageImage

http://www.AdvoCare.com/130617156

Allow me to just say out loud, SHOUTING to the world…that mother nature is a bitch. Tomorrow, I might like her a bit more, but today she is a big old stinky bitch. I was advised against being completely truthful in this blog…by those that love me, and I do appreciate that. With that said, I am going to share it all.

It’s day 1 of my mini Advocare challenge! I am doing the cleanse phase of the 24 day challenge. I started my day with weight and measurements. What a fantabulous day to do that, because I am retaining as much water as the bleeeeeeeepin’ ocean. ‘F’ you mother nature.

Here’s me a in a nutshell:

– I am woman, hear me roar
– 6ft tall
– 176 lbs at this morning’s weigh in (I wear size 10 or 12 for the most part)
– Waist 35″, hips 41″ and center butt 43.5″ (I opted not to do all the measurements, just picked my most muffiny areas)

I have had two children, and I am generally very happy with the way I look. I think that every single woman on this planet (no matter what she looks like) has a few areas of her body that she is unhappy with.

I want to tone up. I want to trim down a bit. I want a few of my pants to feel better. I want to jiggle less. What do YOU want?

My first Advocare product of the day was my Spark! Yeah! Already love the Spark. I learned that I could put my catalyst pills into the Spark….clever. Oh. By the way….you may notice that I am not going into a lot of detail about the individual products. That is on purpose and because I have a wonderful website with tons of info from Advocare’s Sci/Med board. Trust me, check out my website at http://www.AdvoCare.com/130617156.

 So, I drink up my Spark very easily. Always a pleasure. 15 to 45 minutes after I finish my Spark, I am supposed to drink my Fiber drink! I got the peaches n’ cream flavor. I will admit that it is not as tasty as the Spark….but I guess that is just common sense. It’s not really supposed to taste like a dessert…I mean come on! It’s a freakin’ fiber drink. Suck it up and drink it up. Your poops will thank you.

That’s all I got right now. I am just about finished with my fiber drink….then, I will be making a ‘smart’ breakfast for myself. My kids already ate their delicious waffles with “extra creamy” butter and syrup :(.

Talk to you soon folks!

ADVENTURES IN ADVOCARE

Image

My Advocare store:  https://www.advocare.com/130617156/

I am a coffee girl…I mean, I was a coffee girl. Love me some Starbucks! DO NOT love the amount of money I was spending on coffee outside of the house and at home. Very recently I was making a pot of coffee in the AM, drinking a hot cup, putting the pot in the fridge…then drinking iced coffee throughout the day. Guess what? I was still freakin’ tired.

My husband did the 24 Day Challenge from Advocare awhile back. While he was doing the challenge, I stole some of his Spark. I wanna say the flavor I stole was Mandarin Orange. #1 it was yummy, #2 does so much more than perk you up….#3 I felt charged in a good way! No coffee jitters, and no coffee poops (yep that’s right…coffee poops).

When my husband finished the 24 Day Challenge, we ordered more Spark. That ran out…and most recently, we ordered Pink Lemonade and Watermelon. Watermelon is FANTASTIC! I find myself looking forward to my Spark.

The day before yesterday my husband and talked about the possibility of me becoming an Advocare distributor. We were going to continue buying Spark, so why not get a nice discount? Timing was perfect, because there was a meeting yesterday at the Doubletree on Jefferson. I have never seen so many men at a direct sales meeting.

Direct sales is a dirty word…I have done direct sales before…and I feel like I have failed. So, why am I doing it again? I want more Spark! I want to see what else Advocare can do for me. If Spark made me feel good….maybe I should try some of the other products to feel even better.

That’s all I got right now. The adventure has just begun. I’ll be back!
