24 Day Challenge: Day 4

So techinally today is day 5, but the flu gave me a slight setback. Now I'm back on track and down a pound so far. I was a little worried today about running an 8 miler and being able to stick to the eating part of the clense,  but so far so good. I don't feel like I planned as well as I should have for the dietary part, but I'm doing my best. Ready to start the Max phase, so pushing through the next 6 days.

24 Day Challenge: Day 1

Ever felt like you just can't lose those last 10lbs.? This is how I feel at the moment. My goal is to PR in my next half-marathon and dropping those last few pounds will help me increase my speed. Easier to run when you have less to carry around! And really...I hate that picture of me, but it's great motivation to keep going.

So today I'm starting the AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge. Here I am on Day 1 at 136lbs. For those of you unfamiliar with this program, the first ten days are the cleansing phase that focuses on getting rid of unwanted toxins in your body.  I managed to drink the fiber drink this morning with breakfast, but wow was that thick! Good thing you only take for 3 days at the beginning and again the last 3 days of the cleansing phase!  I'm also using Spark, OmegaPlex, CorePlex with Iron, and Catalyst. Today's workout included a 19 minute 2 mile run and a modified CrossFit Mamas WOD. Tonight I'll take the first round of Herbal Cleanse.
