The New Me: 2012 Edition

So a little over a year ago I started a page dedicated to my doing things better title “The New Me”. These “better things” consisted of a healthier lifestyle in ALL aspects. Well it is now 2012 and what do I have to show for it. Here goes….

So I joined Weight Watchers® and I did lose some weight. I started the program in August of 2011 and was not consistant. I didn’t start REALLY doing the program until September 2011, only because the P.E. teacher at work was starting a “Biggest Loser” competition and I wanted to win. (yes, I am a tad bit competative) Well…it WORKED. For the months of September, October, November and December I won the monthly challenges. By January of 2012 I had gone from 200 lbs to 184.5 lbs and I had also gone from wearing size 18 to a size 14! *1st grade teacher happy dance*

Now, here is the problem. It’s March!!! OMG…can you believe that it’s March already?! Anywho, I’ve gained back 5.5 lbs. (smh) So what’s a girl to do?!

Well, I few weeks ago a childhood friend sent me a message via FB (Facebook) telling me about how much weight she has lost. In my mind I was like “yadda yadda yadda…whoopity whoop whoop… I don’t wanna hear this mess!!” But I took the time to really LOOK at her and her transformation. Can we say amazing!?

So I joined the program! It’s through AdvoCare. I am doing the 24 Day Challenge. Below you will find a breakdown of what it consists of…

Days 1-10 Cleanse Phase
The first ten days are about cleansing your body of toxins and preparing for optimal nutrient absorption, and you may enjoy weight loss as well!*

  • Herbal Cleanse-Citrus: helps to cleanse and detoxify your body.*
  • OmegaPlex®: essential fatty acids for increased overall wellness.*
  • AdvoCare Spark®: nutritionally-advanced energy*

Days 11-24 Max Phase

Give your body the best tools you need to achieve your next weight management goal during days 11-24!*

  • Metabolic Nutrition System (MNS®): Your choice of Max C+ (appetite control), Max E+ (energy), or Max 3 – for weight management, appetite control and overall wellness.*
  • Meal Replacement Shake – your choice of chocolate, vanilla, or berry: Complete nutrition in a great-tasting shake!
  • AdvoCare Spark®: nutritionally advanced energy*

Of course I am still working out at the YMCA (Zumba) and at home using my new XBox Kinect (Zumba and Dance Central).

For those of you who are interested you can go to my page “Edition 2012 – Week 1”. Each week I will be posting on how I am doing with the program. You can also check out to see what programs I will be adding!

Thank you for following me on this WONDERFUL journey!! To everyone out there who are trying to do better….CONGRATS and keep up the great work!! 🙂

~Love, Peace, and SOOOOOOOOUL!!!

This is a place for me to reflect on things that are happening in my life.  I might just be one person in this big world of ours, but I'm one person that's on a mission... Life:: the sequence of physical and mental experiences that make up the existence of an individual. Life is a funny thing.  It is forever changing and as it changes so will I.

You may ALWAYS speak your mind here! :)
