BECKYBLUE82's SparkPeople Blog BECKYBLUE82's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Day 17 March 29, 2013 – 17th Day – Weight is back up to 167.4!!!!!! – NOT happy! <em>39</em> <BR> I think it is the sugar and carbs that I’ve eaten, if tho it hasn’t been much. Either way….. it’s depressing! I am going to cut out my coffee and little bit of creamer in the morning, and try not to eat any bad carbs today and see if that makes a difference. I even went to the gym yesterday!! I will have the house to myself today, which is good… but, I have LOTS of chores to do! I would love to fit ... Fri, 29 Mar 2013 05:50:39 EST Frustrated I am feeling bloated this afternoon and frustrated. I did go to the gym this afternoon, hoping that working out would help me feel better. I feel more energetic, but still bloated! <BR> I got home and found a package on the kitchen counter. My husband had ordered some products from the company that he works for. I found that he ordered me a shirt. A size MEDIUM!! This would be fine and good... but, I don't wear a medium!!! This is the size that he WANTS me to wear. Now, I feel depressed. <... Thu, 28 Mar 2013 15:11:58 EST Day 16 March 28, 2013 – 16th Day – Weight is back up again to 166.8!!!!! UGH!! <em>46</em> <BR> What is the deal?????? I just want to cry!! I am hoping that it is just because I haven’t felt well and that I may not be drinking enough water. I will have to work on drinking more water. It’s just not what I want when I am sick. I also have not been to the gym, but my boss/Advocare Coach says that I can lose weight without exercise while I am on Advocare. Of course… this may be a ploy to get me to b... Thu, 28 Mar 2013 05:47:01 EST Day 15 March 27, 2013 – 15th Day – Weight is back up to 166.6 <em>39</em> <BR> I went a little too crazy on the carbs yesterday, plus no exercise. I felt like POO yesterday and I was a little stressed!!! I pray that I can turn that around and get that number lower again. I won’t be going to the gym today, either. I have to go and visit my mom. I have to get some issues with her life insurance straightened out. NOT FUN! <BR> Today is the Easter Egg Hunt for my class at school. I have no idea wha... Wed, 27 Mar 2013 06:20:06 EST Day 14 March 26, 2013 – 14th Day – Weight is 164.4!!! WAHOOO! <BR> Even tho I still feel like POO, I am happy to see the weight drop off! The inches aren’t really moving much, tho. Well, they are. Just slowly. <BR> This Max Phase is most definitely easier than the cleanse phase! I feel like I have a little more freedom in what I can eat. I still don’t know if I will continue to buy the products after this phase, or not. I need to check the pricing and see. I really do like the meal replacement shak... Tue, 26 Mar 2013 05:40:27 EST Day 13 March 25, 2013 – 13th Day – Weight is 165.4!! <BR> Not a whole lot of difference today than yesterday, but that’s ok. I’ll take it! I was kinda’ lazy yesterday and I had a hard time drinking my water. So, that may be why. <BR> I am STILL battling this cold of mine! Of course, it could be allergies. I wish I knew! I just know that I have been dealing with it since I started on this 24 Day journey with Advocare. I’m ready to feel better in ALL ways! Not just with losing weight. <BR> Hubby is... Mon, 25 Mar 2013 05:33:56 EST Day 12 March 24, 2013 – 12th Day – Weight is 165.6!!!! WAHOOOO!! <BR> I haven’t seen 165 in a while!!!!! I remember 166, but not 165. So, it feels GOOD! I still need to measure myself. <BR> Yesterday, I started on the Max Phase of the Advocare 24 Day Challenge. I took a bunch of pills before breakfast and had a “Replacement Meal Shake” for breakfast. I had the chocolate kind. I really liked it a lot! And I even had my coffee, too! Just one cup with just a little bit of creamer. I also had 2 glasses... Sun, 24 Mar 2013 07:10:05 EST 1st Blog Entry I know... that's not a very good "title", but it's all that I could come up with to start out! <em>41</em> I have actually been blogging (actually... "journaling") since I started my journey 11 days ago, but I haven't shared it with anyone.
