Another 24 Day Challenge – Day 15

I’m a little behind on my updates, but I had a few technology/internet issues last week and catching up now.  The last update was day five, on the cleanse and my first Insanity experience.  Today is day 15 and I’m on the Max “Burn” Phase.

Before I jump into the Max Phase, here are my results from the 10 Day Cleanse.

I lost 5 lbs!!

Results Ten Day Cleansse

The 14 day Max Phase is designed to help you fuel your body with core nutrition, increase your energy, control appetite and shed unwanted pounds and inches.  These 14 days help put your metabolism back on track and pushes your body to a fat burning mode.

During the Max Phase you want to continue to eat similar to how you ate during your first ten days with an addition of Meal Replacement Shakes.

You can read more about the Max Phase from my earlier post: 24 DAY CHALLENGE JOURNAL – MAX PHASE (1/23/14 – 2/5/14)

One of my great friends Samantha, gave me a sweet shout out that touched my heart.   It’s always nice to hear how your coaching has helped someone with their fitness journey. Thank you so much Sam!

My Dear Friend

“I have to give a huge shout out to my lady, Chele. You’ve helped me do something constructive with myself instead of caving into a childish act, my stress, and any anger that may have come my way. You helped me get back into the gym, jogging, and eating healthy all around. I love you for being such an amazing mentor when I’ve needed you, and for all of your inspiring posts on Spark your fit. I love you woman!!!” XOXOXOXOXO Sam

Another 24 Day Challenge – Day One

I started my 24 Day Challenge today.  The first 10 days is the Herbal Cleanse.  This gentle cleanse can help you get rid of your body toxins and waste with its unique blend of herbal ingredients.  It can also supports a healthy weight loss.

Lunch time, I had tuna with tomatoes on whole grain bread and did 50 crunches. Dinner tonight was baked chicken with broccoli and carrots.  I have 50 more crunches to do before I go to bed.  I’ll be back on day 5 with an update on my progress.

I completed a 24DC the first part of this year. You can read more about the first 10 days here: 24 DAY CHALLENGE JOURNAL (1/13/14 – 1/15/14) .

My 10 day cleanse is over and the results are in!  Drum roll please….

I lost 5 lbs and 1.5 inches in 10 days! Yay!  I always have great results when doing the Herbal Cleanse.  The Advocare Herbal Cleanse is the best way for you to start a new healthy living program because you will be given a clean nutritional slate. By stripping away all the junk that is stored away inside your body, you will quickly feel lighter and more energized to help you reach your goals.

I am very pleased with my outcome and pumped up for the next phase.  Can’t wait to see my additional results at the end of 24 days.

24 Day Challenge Journal (1/13/14 – 1/15/14)

Lakeisha’s video diary of 100 days inspired me to do a weekly blog about my 24 Day Challenge.  Please take a moment and watch her inspirational story on her efforts to lose weight and boost her self-esteem.

The day before I started the challenge, I put a grocery list together and went shopping for the food items I needed.  Below you will see photos of the food that I prepared for the week.

Eat The Rainbow

All Fruits and Vegetables Washed and Dried

This is my first video diary and it’s pretty rough.  I need to work on speaking into the mike.

Days 1-3. In the morning when you wake up, take one packet of Spark, add it to a bottle of water and shake.  Then grab your fiber drink and add 8 ounces of water with a splash of Spark mix it up (I use a blender) and drink it right away. If you don’t drink it right away it will thicken up.  This cleanse can help you get rid of your body toxins and waste with its unique blend of herbal ingredients.  It can also supports a healthy weight loss.

The video of me showing you how to mix the herbal cleanse, didn’t work out.  You can’t hear me very well.  I made this quick one before I ran out the door to Boot Camp.

Breakfast

I eat breakfast about 15-20 mins after I drink the Fiber mix.

Two boiled eggs, one slice of whole grain wheat toast and strawberries.

Breakfast Day One

Boot Camp also started today at LP Performance. Great workout with weights, sprints and stretching.

One of the great things I like about 24 Day Challenge is that it teaches me how to eat healthier. I use their daily guide that comes with the challenge to help me plan and prepare my days ahead.  Also please remember to drink lots of water during the cleanse to flush out the toxins.  The recommended amount is your body weight divided by two equals the ounces of water you should consume per day.

I will be back in a few days and hope I can work the camera and microphone a little better to show you how to mix the Fiber and Spark drink.
