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:

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

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’ ūüôā

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!

Nationwide Less Flab to your Abs… and Thighs… and Ass…. Challenge!

IMG_3039

 

I don’t know about you but the holidays have been…..generous… to my jiggle this year. Turkeys and potatoes and rolls…. so… many…. rolls. Pies and cheesecakes and gravy on EVERYTHING. Mind you that was just for Thanksgiving. Two weeks from now I will be dominating Christmas dinner. I will eat all the foods and I will not apologize for it. “I say who! I say when! I say how much!” That’s a Pretty Woman quote if you were wondering. Also, if you didn’t know that we can’t be friends.

So with that said, once the calories have happily settled to my backside and the fat is happily squishing my thighs together, it’s time to get my ass to work.

I’ve never been one to do New Years resolutions but, I figured I’d try something different this year and make a list of all I want to accomplish in the next 365 days.

1.) Ass in shape. Like, pre meds, pre happy relationship, pre bathing in a gravy boat.

2.) Wedding planning. Like actual, legit, on paper planning.

3.) Eliminate debt. Which will be super neat considering #2 on my list.

Thankfully, Advocare just announced their first All in Nationwide 24 Day Challenge!¬†This is going to be HUGE y’all. HUGE! They’re also getting to release some big new changes and deals this coming Wednesday. If you’ve every been on the fence with this “fad”, now is the time to go all in!

Did you know that….IMG_2643

Those are some serious numbers! You can be more strict or less strict, add light excercise to this and those numbers will be way higher. My first challenge I lost 13 lbs and 9 inches. It was amazing and honestly, much easier than I ever anticipated. That wasn’t even the best part. The CLARITY I had once I cut out all the crap and started using the Advocare Supplements was UNREAL. The energy and motivation I had was something I hadn’t felt in such a long time. I just felt…. lighter.

So needless to say, I can’t wait to start off on January 11th. It’s one of the BIGGEST challenges to date. With this challenge you get…

  • Access and interaction with a private Facebook group of close to 3K challengers with the same goal as you.
  • Meal plans, menus, and ideas.
  • Cleanse and Max Phase example days.
  • Daily motivation, tips, and tricks.
  • Support from other group members.
  • My help with any questions/concerns at any point during the Challenge.
  • Prize pack for whoever has the most noticeable transformation before/after pics!
  • And finally… a new you. A you that you’ve been putting off for who knows how long. A you that you have busted your ass to be. A you that you finally put first. A you that inspires others.

I think for most people, to do something like this, they have to have that moment. That moment when they realize they just can’t stay where they are in life at this moment. I don’t mean geographically speaking. I mean who you are. You have always put others before yourself. Friends, family, kids, work. Because putting yourself first, taking care of YOU, would be selfish.

I think we can finally say together, fuck that. Just.. fuck that. Put yourself first. BE selfish. Love YOU. This is more than just losing weight. It’s what you gain. Your life. Your pride. Learning to love yourself again. No, being thin doesn’t do that. But let this be the start to something bigger. Let it be your year. Get excited!

So click the Shop! button up at the menu board or go to www.advomeg.com¬†right stinkin’ now before you convince yourself you shouldn’t spend the money on you, you shouldn’t spend the time on you, or that maybe later would be a better time. How long have you been saying that to yourself? Just click the dang button and jump!

 

As always feel free to email me at whiskeysippy@gmail.com with any questions, concerns, or thoughts.

I look forward to you joining me!

It’s not supposed to be like this…

“I am going to lose it..”

“I can’t keep doing this…”

“It’s not supposed to be like this…”

“What kind of mother feels this way?”

9287ca7887131ff1596605618625b5a4

I think at LEAST one of those thoughts a day. More specifically in the morning shuffle as I’m trying to get the kids to school and myself to work. Those thoughts then manifest into “I’m going insane.” “Why can’t SOMETHING just be simple?” “How in the hell am I supposed to do this for the rest of my life.”

Picture this: Here I am, hiding in the laundry room and it’s not even 7 AM.¬†I just screamed at my son because once again he is being a jerk and yelling at his brother. So I screamed at him, to express that him screaming is not okay or acceptable in this house. Totally logical right?

“I need a fucking break” I murmur¬†in my head. But this is not something you can rejuvenate from in an hour. This isn’t a “girls night” (what’s that btw?) fix. This isn’t even a week long bahama vacation type of thing, although I wouldn’t turn that down for nothin’. This is a “create a life you don’t have to escape from” deal. Which some or most days, just isn’t in the cards

.

e128b9e00ee9294e4f3023e74907a931

I have this taped on my fridge. Just in case I forget.

So I’m in the laundry room, trying to prevent an all out break down because this is about much more than a simple sibling tiff, and my little beast walks in and says,

“Momma, can I have some juice?”

“Just give me a minute bud. I’ll get it, okay?”

“Okay… Oh, Momma?”

Irritated again…”Yes?”

“You have boo-tuh-full hair.”

And JUST. LIKE.THAT my heart just combusts. Like the Grinch in that one scene, it breaks the cage around itself. I am brought back down from this reality I have created in my head that my house is an insane asylum and I’m this angry bitch of a mother. I am reminded that I have two sweet, gorgeous little boys who understand that even Momma’s need a reminder sometimes that

It is exhausting. I’m exhausted. LIFE is exhausting. I’m so drained some days that just typing this, saying it “out loud” makes my eyes well up and that is not an easy feat. Is this how we are supposed to feel? How can a mother feel this way about her own kids? That’s wrong. No mother feels like that. You’re alone in that. You’re a horrible mom.

Except you’re not. You’re not any of those things. Feelings don’t make you who you are. Actions might,¬†but even then you aren’t your worst mistakes. You’re more than that. There is a million people out there thinking the same shit. If you are one that has never thought or felt any of this, well… come to my house and we can fix that.

You have to find things that you can control, to bring a little joy and humor into those moments when you’re locking yourself in the laundry room. ¬†Write, find a hobby, mix a drink, buy some shoes, go workout, vent to some friends, hell even look in the humor section of Pinterest. I’ve done all of these things. My preference is the writing, shoes, and of course mixing a drink if my site title didn’t give it away. But that’s half the reason I started this blog. Something about putting all your shit on paper, gets rid of it… for a moment at least.

7a1f1d762d7af6ebde5fdf99c42d4907

Once you’e done that, and drug yourself out of your funk. Get to work. Start creating that life that you don’t need to hide from. You will always have these moments, but the key is how often and how long those moments last. Take control of your life. Make an actual plan. You got this and for what it’s worth, I’m with you each step of the way. Me and my whiskey.
