I never in my life thought I’d be blogging about Advocare products. There’s a girl that lives in our apartment complex that sells Advocare — her car is decked out in Advocare decals saying she has lost 50 pounds — however she still looks fairly large. I’m not knockin’ her …it just appears that the product is not working for her, which made me skeptical about trying it.
I’ve been reading a few bloggers who are die-hard Advocare users, and it seems they have had great success using Advocare, so I thought I would give it a try. Last week I ordered the Spark energy drink from Amazon. I got in the mail on Thursday, and I had my first Spark drink on Friday morning before work.
I blogged here that I didn’t think Spark actually worked since I never really felt a difference in my attitude or work ethic. It did not give me any more energy than I normally have. I told myself I would give it one more chance to let it work its magic.
Saturday morning Dono and I were supposed to have a garage sale, but for whatever reason, we decided not to do it. Instead, I suggested that we try a spin class together (he hadn’t gone yet) on Saturday morning at 9:3am. Come Saturday morning, about 8am, neither of us wanted to get out of bed. I hate to love spin class, but I knew we would feel better after going. For breakfast before class, I made a Spark drink and ate half an english muffin with peanut butter — enough fuel for me to make it through the class.
I’m pretty sure the Spark did it’s “thang” because I really powered through that spin class! Saturday mornings are not my forte- I hate getting out of bed, and the Spark really did give me enough pep to make it through the class. I could tell I was really pushing myself towards the end and I felt a bit more focused.
I’m still giving Spark the “trial phase,” but I am glad to know it actually works.
Has anyone tried the fiber drink or any other vitamins? Anything you would suggest to me?
