When I began this blog, I really did not intend for it to be a weight loss blog.  I wanted it to document my efforts in becoming healthier and being a better example for my young daughter.  Weightloss is a part of that journey and I will talk about it from time to time but ultimately, it's not the driving force of the blog.  I'm not sure that this counts as a confession, but I think that we are all pretty aware that over the past few months, I have not been the greatest role model in healthy eating and exercise.  It's true, I have gained around twenty pounds.  

Anyway, it's been a struggle trying to get back into a really good exercise routine and making healthy food choices.  I'm slowly getting back into the routine of early morning workouts but the food is still a struggle.  A couple of months ago, Patrice called me up and told me about a new product that she thought I might be interested in.  Once I realized that this was a new business venture for her as well, I was turned off and I told her that I would think about it.  Since that phone call, many of Alex and my friends have tried the product and have had good results from it. 

The product that she is selling is Advocare.  Like I said, many of our friends have done the 24-day challenge and have seen results with it.  Apparently, these products are supposed to help me increase lean muscle mass and decrease body fat.  I decided to give it a try and I am currently in day 4 of the cleanse.  Just for fun (and mostly for myself to see if I wasted my time and money), I have posted some before shots:
Yay, ugly bathroom photos

Good thing the flash covers up my face
so you can't tell if I was sucking in or not ;)
At the very least, I'm hoping that the next twenty four days will help me to reset my eating habits.  Twenty more days to go!

Do you know of anyone that has done the 24 day challenge?  

Do you think the word gullible starts with ME?
