Abby is almost 7 months now (can you believe it) and I have been struggling…struggling to lose the baby weight I gained with her.
I gained around 40 lbs with her and lost 20 of it after I had, so I have around 20 lbs left to lose. I have never had trouble losing weight before and I know 20 lbs isn't that much to many of you. My short 5′ 2″ frame is having a hard time though. I just feel so tired, unenergetic and flabby! Yes, I've had 4 children (3 of them in the last 4 yrs) so my body has been through a lot.
I ‘ve always heard of Advocare and it's 24 day challenge so I am giving it a go! I am VERY nervous about it but I feel like my metabolism needs some help getting started again. We are joining the YMCA tomorrow and I start the challenge next Monday. It basically is a clean eating challenge where you do a cleanse, take probiotics, supplements and jump start your body. I am super excited to get started. I will be blogging through my 24 day journey so hopefully it works! I almost didn't do it because of the price (the entire program is $188) but after talking with Mark, we agreed we could spend the money because I have just been feeling so YUCKY!
I was a college athlete and have been in great shape my whole life; I was in great shape after all of my other pregnancies but this fourth child just DID.MY.BODY.IN. She is worth it though 🙂
So starting on Monday I plan to exercise more regularly, stop drinking so much coffee, eat more fruits and vegetables and drink more water! I will be posting pictures of my 24 day challenge (which scares me more than anything!!!)
Has anyone done this challenge before? What did you think?
