Thigh gaps and Mexico.

Quite the title, eh?

I thought I’d take a moment (while I have one) to update on things.

It’s been about two weeks since I wrapped my 24 Day Challenge and I’m stoked to say with the help and upkeep of my Advo products I’m still losing. Down a total of 20 LBS since January 11th!

IMG_4453 (1)

I still have a long ways to go, but man I am stoked at the progress I’ve made and how much better I feel! And no, there’s no thigh gap, it just sounded good. I’ve never had thigh gap, even way back when I was a tiny little thing. My thighs rub… it keeps me warm.

My friend, Nichole, is currently on day 11 of her 24 Day Challenge and already having AMAZING results!

IMG_4454

She is no stranger to working hard for weight loss. She has gastric bypass and lost an amazing 176 POUNDS! She hit a plateau a couple months back and decided that Advocare sounded like it could be a game changer. She has clearly kicked that plateau’s ass and then some!

I’ve been continuing my clean eating with an exception here and there. But I’ve gotten pretty creative and sometimes it’s the simplest things that can be the most satisfying. Even on days when I completely forget my lunch, forget my products, and so hungry I would punch a kitten for a friggin’ cheeseburger. But even then, I take a moment… remember my goals, skip the drive thru and get resourceful.

Today’s lunch for example:

IMG_4463

No, nothing exciting. But you know what? I felt GREAT after eating. No crash. No slump. Just satisfied and energized.

Some other concoctions I’ve made up lately….IMG_4439 IMG_4419 IMG_4388

And I’m currently enjoying a little of this…

IMG_4398

CHEERS!

No this isn’t wine. I’m more of a whiskey girl myself, but this isn’t that either. It’s Oasis and it’s fucking delish. If you haven’t tried it, you should.

We’re starting up another group challenge the second week of March or so, and would love to have you join us!

After you order, I’ll add you to our private FB group of almost 3K other challengers that will give you constant support and accountability. Meal plans, recipes, shopping lists, daily guides and more! You could be the next before and after, less than 60 days from now. Crazy thought right?

If you think there’s a chance this may work for you, shoot me an email at whiskeysippy@gmail.com and let’s chat! If you take a leap and we sign you up, great. If not, that’s totally fine too! You don’t know what you don’t know.

ALLSSSOOOO, we just booked a all inclusive trip to CANCUN! I can’t wait. Sun, booze, ocean front, booze, relaxation, no kids, booze. 28 days loves! I have a lot of work to do to feel comfortable in that bikini and even that makes me super excited. Which is another thing I love about Advo, I honest to goodness look forward to each step that I take in this new lifestyle.

I can’t wait to snap tons of pics and document the memories and share with all of ya’ll! We went to Jamaica last Summer and I don’t think I took nearly enough pics which kind of bums me out. I think a lot of that was me not wanting to be in front of the camera. Which really, what kind of life is that? Being so uncomfortable with yourself that you avoid your own life? UGH. Not no mo’. You have to say it just like that too, NOT-NO-MO.

Alright loves, it’s time to get my happy ass in bed.

XOXO

The Vintage Honey Shop and Sausage Fingers

I will never forget holding my sweet little bambino back when he was just a couple months old. His sweet chubby little hands reaching up with a little grin on his face and then BAM! Those little sausage fingers grab onto my earring and pulls my earring so hard all I can feel (and hear) is my ear being ripped like a fruit roll up.

There was a lot of four letter words, and a decent amount of blood running down at this point.

From that point on it was a juggling act. Earring out, necklace off, hair up, glasses hidden. He would grab and scratch anything he could get his little angry fingers on, including himself. At least I knew he wasn’t discriminating, right?

Well, times have changed and that is definitely a thing of the past.

I got my hands on the coolest thing that is absolutely on the top of all new mom’s must have list.

IMG_3502

How cute is this?!

Plus look at how cute the packaging is…

IMG_3490 (1)

These adorable little guys are completely handmade in Nashville with nothing but the best quality products, so it’s completely safe for your little ones!

This is my personal favorite:

vintagehoney-0171_grande

How gorg is this? You would never know it’s a teething necklace!

This gives your kiddo’s something besides facial features to grab onto and keep themselves occupied to make for a much calmer cuddle/feeding session. Not to mention when those teeth start pushing through, this will provide much needed relief for the both of you!

Vintage_Honey_Shop-vintagehoneymay-0287_grande

I recently gifted one of these to a good friend of mine and she can’t stop raving about it! They will definitely be a baby shower gift from here on out.

They even carry a line specifically with Dads in mind. Although I won’t lie, I’d definitely wear these too.

These are super affordable already, but my friends over at Vintage Honey gave me a special coupon code just for my readers!

I kicked it’s ass. My 24 Day Challenge results.

That’s right.

Kicked the shit out of it.

Bam.

Me- 1

Muffin-top-0

We should chest bump right now.

But that could be awkward soooo instead just read on and imagine me chest bumping you.

SOOOOOO from January 11th to February 3rd I made the 24 Day Challenge my bitch.

GUYS… I LOST 16 LBS!!!

IMG_4061

Yup. I did the dang thing. I planned out each day (sometimes not all that great), I kept focused on the end goal, and most importantly I remebered why the hell I started. I DO NOT want to live this life anymore. I don’t mean that in a “I can’t get out of bed anymore”. I mean it in a, if I could choose to live the last 365 days exactly the same way over again without changing a thing, no, I wouldn’t want that. I want better. For my kids, my family, my friends, but mainly for ME. I’ve decided to choose me and I can’t afford to half ass it.

The best part is I’m part of a private Facebook group with almost 3K people all with the same goal which offers loads of support, tips, recipes, new products, humor, oh man… so much humor. It made all the difference.

Since my challenge ended I’ve lost another 3 lbs and I can’t wait to see how the next few months goes. Imma be lookin’ goooooood at the lake this Summa’ 🙂

We’re also starting up another huge group challenge here soon and we would LOVE to have you join us. I’m telling you, you deserve this chance. I know, I thought of a million reasons why now wasn’t a good time before too. But ask yourself this, “Would you be willing to live the last 365 days of your life EXACTLY the same?” Good lord if nothing else I was tired of putting skinny jeans on qualifying as a friggin’ Olympic event.

What IS Advocare?

Lots of you have heard about it, either through friends, coworkers, family trying the 24 Day Challenge or people promoting products on social media. It’s growing and it’s growing FAST.

With that, I’ve had a few people as me “Well, what IS it though? What does this company do?” So here I am, typing away, avoiding the buzzing of my dryer.

“Advocare is a word class nutrition company specializing in health and wellness”, this is directly from their website. So that’s the gist of their slogan.

Their products break down to four different categories:

  • Performance Elite (workout line. IE Muscle Gain, etc)
  • Well (Fiber Cleanse, Immunoguard, general immune support, etc)
  • Active (the famous SPARK, rehydrate, snack/meal bars, etc)
  • Trim (24 Day Challenge, etc)

Trim is probably the most popular line, as this is where the 24 Day Challenge is categorized. By the way I’m now on day 16 of my challenge and down 13 LBS! Crazy right?! I can’t wait to measure to see the difference in inches, that’s what really counts. Never felt better, and I’m not just saying that cause that’s what everyone says. This stuff is gold. 24 Day Challenge is by far their best selling bundle. I should note that they also have a Skin Care line however, it is soon to be discontinued.

The company started way back in 1993 (it still feels odd to say 93′ was way back). It’s backed by a unprecedented team of doctors, pharmacologists, biologists, and all sorts of other ologists. Giving them 200 years experience combined!

It’s the only product of it’s kind to have national endorsements such as Saints quarterback, Drew Brees, Dallas tight end Jason Witten, they’re also the official sports nutrition partner of Major League Soccer. There’s literally hundreds more, these are just what I can remember off the top of my head.. which we all know is touch and go.

Our products are regularly tested by third party companies to ensure quality and safe ingredients. This also guarantees that the products are manufactured to the highest of standards.

Advocare, for me, also kind of teaches you the basics and fundamentals of eating clean, jump starting a new lifestyle, gives you the tools and supplements to set you up LONG TERM. I didn’t join this program for a quick fix. I joined because I no longer had a choice. I was NOT going to continue the way that I was. I’m also the kind of person that needs to see some sort of instant gratification. Not going to lie about that. I saw people’s success with the 24 Day Challenge and thought it couldn’t be more perfect. I could reboot my metabolism and way of thinking, lose weight faster than I would without the products, and get everything I needed to live an 80/20 lifestyle.

It’s a no risk company as there’s 100% Money Back Guarantee if your not satisfied!

It is also unique in that Advocare provides the opportunity to earn a FULL TIME income if you choose to become a distributor.

As a Distributor you can enjoy the following:

  • There’s 5 ways to earn income through Advocare.
  • Distributors can earn from retail and wholesale earnings.
  • You can join at different entry levels of YOUR choosing.
  • Wholesale customers and Distributors earn an automatic 20% discount the moment you sign on as such.
  • There’s no monthly minimum to meet
  • No auto pay/auto shipping
  • DISCOUNT IS FOR LIFE!

There is a $79 Distributor start up fee, BUT you get 3 Free boxes of Spark with that in your distributor kit which makes your fee essentially only $10. Remember, this gets you a 20% discount for life with your enrollment! Every time you order, it works its way to the next discount level.

If you join my team you get:

  • Step by step guidance in how to get started.
  • Access to a private FB group of almost 3K members who are all in this for the same reason as you are.
  • Help building your local and online presence if you choose to become a Distributor
  • Meal Plans
  • Grocery Lists
  • Recipes
  • Mixers
  • Three way calls
  • Tons more!

I’ve had quite a few people join as a Distributor just to enjoy the 20% discount on products with no intention of selling. This is what we call Wholesale Customers and it’s crazy NOT to make this move.

So these are the basics. There’s so much more to it than that and I can honestly say this has changed my way of thinking and feeling about myself. I’ve made so many friends, gained a second source of income, and changed my health for the better.

If you’re interested in any of the above, PLEASE, don’t hesitate to contact me!

Paleo White Chicken Chili (24Day Challenge Friendly)

So you know that white chicken chili I briefly mention in my last post? Dudes. I ate that for 3 days straight it was so good!

As promised, I’m now posting the recipe. It’s clean, easy, healthy, AND 24 Day Challenge approved!

Let’s not forget, I suck at measurements 🙂

fontcandy

 

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 cooked and shredded chicken breasts
  • 1 can white beans
  • 1 can great northern beans
  • 1 can diced green chilis
  • 2 cups fresh (or frozen) corn
  • 1/2 white onion chopped
  • 3 chopped celery stalks
  • Roughly 12 or so ounces of salsa verde (I’ve used a small can of green enchilada sauce and it’s equally fab)
  • 16oz organic chicken broth
  • Few dashes cumin
  • Few dashes pepper
  • Few dashes salt
  • Few dashes taco seasoning
  • Garlic. An assload of garlic. Because who in the hell doesn’t love garlic?
  • Cilantro and avocado for garnish. No these aren’t optional.

Drain beans. Throw the rest of the crap in a crock pot and set on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4. Of course you could do this in a dutch oven or pot, I’d let it simmer awhile to let all the flavors mesh but, if you simply can’t resist just get the shit hot.

Then repost the shit out of this recipe because Meg is bomb and so is good food.

That’s it. Literally. How easy is that?!

 

XOXO!

All In 24 Day Challenge Update

IMG_3629Guys. Holy balls.

It feels like everything’s been moving so fast! I’m on day four of the 24 day challenge and already down SIX LBS! I know I know. I cheated. I’m a rebel. I weighed myself. Some people say to only weigh yourselves on day 11 (first day of max phase) and 25 (morning after your last day of the challenge). But I couldn’t resist. I’m also the kind of person that likes to weigh myself more regularly so I know if the scale isn’t moving, I need to change things up. SIX POUNDS! 

Having a huge support group makes a world of difference. I’m part of a private FB group that’s close to 3K people who are all either doing, have done, or about to do a challenge. Lots are just maintaining the lifestyle etc. But around 200 of us (or more) joined the National All In challenge starting January 11th.

Still want to join? CLICK HERE.

Last Sunday we went shopping to prep for the following week. Got all sorts of goodies and produce that won’t end up just rotting away in the bottom drawer. Imagine that. Crazy talk. IMG_3557

There’s a good chunk not pictured here. Like La Croix to mix with our Spark. That’s an essential. Brown Rice Cakes. PB2 powder. Some other rando’s. We are fortunate in that where we live, there’s tons of fresh seafood that you can just go down to the docks and buy, We also butchered our own cow this year so we have organic, grass fed, hormone free beef that’s insanely lean and fab (that’s what she said).

For dinner one we did a simple stir fry with quinoa. Super quick and full o’ flava’.

IMG_3578 (1)

I passed on the quinoa but the fam bam had it and totally approved.

For snacks I’ve been keeping it simple and fresh. The first day was a small adjustment. I think because I was thinking about food so much it was making me hungrier than normal.

IMG_3593

This hits the spot. Sweet baby carrots with some spicy guac. I’ve eating two bags in four days!

Last night for dinn I made a white chicken chili. I honestly just kinda wung it… winged it… wanged it? WTF is the right use? I’m tired. Fuck if I know. I like wang it. Because well wang is a fun word and apparently I’m forever 12 years old. IMG_3630

I promise to post the recipe soon!

I’m a big vagina when it comes to spice, literally pepper makes me sweat like a whore in church, but I made sure to give this a little kick anyways. It clears out your sinuses, keeps you full, and makes you drink a ton of water while eating it.

I brought this for lunch today too. I countered it with some fresh fruit to douse the friggin’ fire that was happening in my mouth. IMG_3638

It’s odd how you can forget how good simple, convenient, fresh foods can be.

Tonight however I lost my mojo and didn’t plan anything for dinner. There was leftovers and, I had my lunch kind of late so I passed on dinner while the fam ate leftovers. Of course, just like Man Friend said, I would sit my ass down for the first time today and wait til everyone was done and say I was hungry. I felt bad proving him wrong so, I decided to be a good girlfriend (I refuse to use the word fiance if you haven’t noticed) and say I was hungry. Turns out what I whipped up real quick is one of my new faves!

IMG_3648

Two eggs and half an avocado on top of Ezekiel toast.

Friggin’ amaze balls.

I feel like now may be a good time for a disclaimer. I’ve NEVER been one to participate in any “diet” program. I’ve never done shakes or weight watchers or any of the latter. Not that I felt there was anything wrong with them, I just knew that eating clean and exercising was the key to weight loss. Simple right? HA! Somehow, maybe with age, shit just wasn’t that easy anymore. Due to health issues, I’ve had to be on a cocktail of medications that caused a hefty amount of weight gain. That combined with shit eating habits and sitting on my ass has put me way outside my comfort zone and makes putting on any pants an aerobic dance that looks similar to Napoleon Dynamite trying to ribbon dance. So I decided what the hell, why not, I’ll try it.

It’s a game changer. The supplements boost your energy, suppress your appetite, keep you full longer,  and get your metabolism going. I’m never hungry. I eat ALL day long. The biggest piece has been the energy for me. I feel like I’ve been a zombie for the last two years. In a fog. Slowly but surely I’m crawling out of it and I haven’t felt this good in I don’t know how long. Not to mention Spark. Ya’ll know my love for spark. I’ve written about it multiple times. IMG_3594

Plus it just looks so damn pretty too, right?

If you’ve ever even been the least bit on the fence… just… trust me. I don’t endorse shit. I don’t promote shit. I’ve never been one to publicly do anything but I started this entire blog simply because of how much this is doing for me, my family, and my friends. Every single person that has joined me on this has been happier for it. If you have any questions, apprehensions, or just want to chat about it please, always feel free to contact me! Email me at whiskeysippy@gmail.com and let’s start that convo!

This. Right here. I can’t make you fight for your own life. But if you can find a way to make the choice for yourself, I can’t wait to help you along the way.

IMG_3649 (1)

If you want to take a look at products, shop around, or order your challenge now go to www.advomeg.com now and get to it! It’s such a fun process and I can’t wait for you to join.

Once I get confirmation for your order, I’ll add you to the private FB group I mentioned above and introduce you to a whole new world of people and friends! There’s daily check ins, inspiration, recipes, questions, and SO MUCH LAUGHTER. It’s a great group!
