My weight-loss journey using Advocare and eating clean

 

 

Screen Shot 2014-04-13 at 9.20.55 PM

My Story:

I love a good weight-loss story…except when I am the subject and I have to cut out sugar! My son is 7 months old and I finally decided enough is enough and it’s REALLY time to get this baby weight off. 

During my last pregnancy I put on some a lot of weight so of course getting it off has been tough. Above is the picture of my weight after having the baby. I started at 174 then got stuck at 165 for the past 7 months.

I am not one of those mom’s whose weight falls off while breastfeeding or can fit in my pre-pregnancy jeans. Let’s be honest, I am still wearing my maternity jeans. I wear mostly black because it’s slimming right? Well black shirts and yoga pants. But it’s time for a change and I wanted to involved all of you! I want to share my victories, and defeats and let you know how my journey goes.

I decided to try out the Advocare 24 day challenge because I needed a plan. I hear about Advocare at least once a day from different people so I decided to sign up. This is NOT a review this is just what I am trying to loose weight and I paid for it!

What I am doing to loose the weight:

This is how I feel about Advocare. You will not loose weight unless you decide you have had enough. No diet or plan will work unless you are committed. What I like about Advocare is you eat clean and have a plan. I started eating healthy a few days before I started the challenge and have been on the challenge for 5 days and the have lost 5 pounds!  (I wrote this on sunday so it’s been a few days since then ;-)

This is a 24 day challenge of eating their meal plan and taking their supplements. You eat 6 small meals a day so I normally dont get hungry.

Postives:

I have lots of energy, am loosing weight and eating clean. It is safe for breastfeeding mommas like myself and this is the only cleanse I have ever found that I am do while nursing.

My husband graduates on May 9th and my goal is to lose 10 pounds but I might just surpass it!

photo 

Goal by Next sunday:

Weigh 155 or loose 5 pounds.

I will let you know how it goes!

Btw I signed up for Advocare and I know lots of people do it as a business as well as take their products. I signed up to get a discount and use their products. I would be happy to help any of you if you are interested in their products to give you more info and you can follow along and see if it works for me!

Walmart and Wild Oats team up and drive down organic prices! HOT NEWS!

Walmart, the nation’s Largest Grocer Works with Organics Pioneer to Relaunch Brand and Save Customers 25 Percent or More on Organic Groceries. I love to eat organic food and serve them to my family as well and the only deterrent sometimes is the price. I was looking at a bag a organic flour. It was $11 and 15lbs I think, they I looked over to the 50lb bag or regular flour that is only $9 and it made me sick because I know more people would buy organic if they could afford it!

Originally introduced in 1987, Wild Oats will relaunch at Walmart starting this month with a new, more affordable price point on quality products covering a broad variety of categories – from salsa and pasta sauce to quinoa and chicken broth. Customers will save 25 percent or more when comparing Wild Oats to national brand organic products.

When I lived in Little Rock, AR I shopped at a Wild Market and loved it! They had great food at great prices and I am so excited to see them teaming up with my BFF Walmart!

 Check out the video below because everyone deserves the choice! #wildoats4all

Come along with me on my weightloss journey starting with a TEN calorie treat!

“This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Dr. Pepper Snapple Group but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #TENways  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

IMG_1672

This last baby had me pushing 200 pounds and I have weighed around 130-120 most of my adult life. PHEW that is hard to admit! You never ask a girl how much they weigh but during my journey I am committed to being 100% transparent and tell you all the details good and bad.

I started a weight loss program last week, which I will blog about tomorrow, and I am going to share the tips and tricks that help me on my weightless journey.

The thing with me is I have a massive sweet tooth. I am on a gluten free, dairy free diet and in order to succeed I have to treat myself every now and then but I found a 10 calorie sweet treat that curbs my sweet tooth.

Nothing says treat like a glass of any of the Four DPSG TEN beverages or sodas and I picked up all 4 at my local Walmart. Does anyone else pour their soda in a fancy glass like me? It makes me feel like I am REALLY getting a treat and let’s face it you barely ever use the china you got for your wedding. 

 IMG_1804Screen Shot 2014-04-15 at 9.31.49 AM

Chasing around 4 kids all day will wear you out so at night I like to take a warm bubble bath along with my glass of 10 sweet sweet calorie 7 up TEN, A&W TEN, Sunkist TEN, or Canadian Dry TEN. 

 If you want to pick some up for yourself, go here to their website and score a coupon! I know all pricing is different but in my Walmart the TEN products were cheaper than the regular which is extra sweet!

I get 500 calories a day to eat whatever I would like so drinking a glass of any of the 4 DPSG soda’s barely tips my toe into my allowance!

IMG_1658 IMG_1662

I have to tell you I am a root beer kind of gal and the A&W TEN hits that sweet spot. It has so much flavor and calms my sweet tooth when I feel like I want to cheat on my diet. I feel like I am slurging when I drink my daily glass of A&W TEN but I am far from it!

To make any diet successful you have to have a plan and I am on a diet that is well laid out and I work my glass of any of the Four DPSG TEN beverages or sodas into my daily meal plan. 

 

I am down 5 pounds in 1 week and feel great and not deprived at all since I get my daily glass of any of the TEN products. 

 dPSAG diaper bag

Mom to Mom Diapers exclusively at Safeway stores

 This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Mom to Mom.

m 

Have you heard of Mom to Mom diapers exclusively sold at Safeway stores? I had not even heard of these diapers and I have a Safeway within walking distance of my house! I have 4 kids and have tried out a lot of diapers and I have a favorite brand but it’s also the more expensive brand so for my last baby, I decided to switch brands and try to save money. What I liked about the more expensive diaper was not only the leakage protection but the softness of the diaper. And to be honest the ones I am using now are not that soft :-(

The Mom to Mom diapers have both of those qualities! They have great leakage protection and are so soft!  The reason these diapers are so soft is because they have a soft Hypoallergenic Liner that contains Vitamin E and Aloe which is perfect for that new baby skin. 

Summit normally wears a size 4 but I was happy to see he could wear a size 3 as well in these diapers. The smaller sizes have more in the pack so that’s a better bang for your buck. 

They have a great fit and I never was worried the diaper would come undone.

The diapers also have the size diaper on the back so you can tell what size your using. This comes in handy because babies grow out of diapers pretty quick and if you have a pack of diapers you took out of the packaging, sometimes it is hard to tell what size diaper it is and these make it easy.

My son is a little roly poly so the extra leak protection comes in handy.

Safeway understands Moms needs and Mom to Mom is offered at a value to help families save more so next time you are in a Safeway store, check out these diapers!

 Let me give you a glimpse inside my life…

There are dirty dishes, dirty windows, bathroom breaks with an entire entourage, mandatory trips outside just so I can clean the dirty dishes and this is what my kitchen looks like.

 Screen Shot 2014-04-09 at 2.01.37 PM 

If you look really close, that is me doing the dishes from inside, while looking outside at my son on a pallet watching his older siblings play. Basically I figured out how to get the dishes done, let the kids play outside while I do the dishes and not have to worry one bit about if my son will leak through his diapers. If your a mom of small children you know how I feel. It is so hard to balance all the things during the day and the last thing I want to have to worry about is diapers and with Safeway Mom to Mom diapers I don’t have too.

IMG_1627 

P-D-661_size 3_m 

My heart melted when as I was rushing and trying to finish the dishes and about 10 minutes outside this little boy was all tuckered out. He had fallen asleep. I guess all that playing outside was just to much :-) I know these outings are short lived since he isn’t crawling yet but right now while he stays in 1 place I can enjoy 5 minutes of dish washing while watching all 4 play! 

Using Mom to Mom diapers is one less thing I have to clutter my mind with because I know they do the job and I have a lot more important things too worry about.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Mom to Mom.
