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!

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!

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…

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’ 🙂

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!

“Mom! The meatloaf! We want it now!”

If you don’t know what quote that movie is from I don’t know if we can be friends until you watch it. Wedding Crashers. Super immature, super hilarious.

I had never been a fan of meatloaf growing up. I am however a huge fan of comfort food. I had looked and looked for recipes online but never found one that really tickled my pickle. So, per usual, I decided to wing it.

Keeping in mind my quest to eat healthy, this is what I came up with. Let me tell you, it’s delish

TURKEY BALLS 

Ingredients:

1.25 Lbs Turkey Burger
1 cup finely shredded carrots
1/2 red onion chopped
1/2 red pepper finely chopped
1/2 orange pepper finely chopped
1 head of garlic minced
1 egg
A few dashes of Worcestershire sauce
Seasoning salt
Fresh ground pepper
1 PKG Italian Dressing Mix, or italian seasoning, thyme, sage.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix all ingredients in a bowl… super complicated, right?
Take a sip… or gulp of your favorite mommy juice
Spray muffin tin with non stick spray.
Form meatloaf mixture into a good size looking meatball
This is where I veer from the healthy side… I then top each mini meatloaf with a coat of BBQ sauce. It just makes it look prettier and gives it that nice boost of flavor.
Bake for about 45 minutes and boom y’all, you got yourself some turkey balls!

I served this with mashed cauliflower, which believe it or not my kids didn’t even notice it wasn’t potatoes! They were totally shocked when I told them my secret. This is one of Man Friend’s favorite meals that I make, clean eating or not. I always double the recipe and freeze for later or use for lunches throughout the week. You can’t go wrong here peeps.

If you aren’t worried about calorie consumption, I would throw in some BBQ sauce in the mix along with some shredded parmesan cheese. You can always swap out the Italian dressing mix with onion soup mix, it’s pretty damn good too!

Stay tuned for the mashed cauliflower recipe!
