So today is Day 2 for me on the Advocare 24-Day Challenge. I started yesterday with the program and I have to say, Day 1 went much smoother than I would have thought.
I ate clean ALL day (which is a big deal for me) and I took all the supplements at the right times. However, I did have a problem with the fiber drink. I was warned it was gross, and I think I thought about it too much and was practically gagging before I even started drinking it. There are small chunks in it, which did not help. So I only got half of it down.
Here's where I think I went wrong with the fiber drink: first of all, I didn't stir it enough. I've heard it's much better if it's shaken and stirred up real good. Second, the water wasn't cold enough. Third, I probably should measure out 8oz of water as I think I mixed it with way more, hence more to drink.
I had no problem with no coffee. That's because the caffeinated Spark drink really is as good as "they" say it is. I bought a canister of watermelon which is good. The 24-Day Challenge came with a box of fruit punch and a box of citrus. The boxes each have 14 individual packs, super easy to take with you to work or wherever. Fruit punch is the best. Truly so good.
I did have a headache by bedtime, but I think that's due to the fact that I get headaches. All. The. Time. I always have and always will. I take a migraine preventative (not working) and take way more ibuprofen than I wish I did. So, the headache was probably just me because that's how I am. Or because it's been 95 degrees here, and being in the Idaho mountains, we don't have air conditioning in our houses. I could NOT sleep last night because the room was muggy and hot. Totally miserable!
I worked 10 hours yesterday trying to begin the process of getting caught up after my vacation. And while I am putting another long day, I'll be wishing that we were still here......
