The AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge: Day 2

Today we received the Catalyst and extra Spark I ordered last week! Catalyst is a supplement that you can take in conjunction with the 24 Day Challenge to assist with maintaining lean muscle mass as you burn fat through exercise. To learn more about Catalyst and other AdvoCare products, click here

Lindsay's Day 2

Food:  Kashi wheat cereal. Lots of fruits and vegetables (celery, carrots, blue berries, orange, banana). Turkey sandwich on wheat bread. Spaghetti with meat sauce (lean ground beef, whole grain pasta) and salad for dinner. 

Energy Levels: Great! I had a high, steady level of energy all day. This is different than my usual energy levels, which was a caffeine (coffee) induced energy high in the morning that bottomed out after lunch leaving me feeling tired and unable to concentrate.

Exercise: Ran 4 miles

Success: Sustaining a high level of energy throughout the day.

Challenge: Avoiding processed foods, dairy, and lunch meat. I am starting to realize just how much processed food &dairy my family eats.

John's Day 2

Food: Skipped breakfast and ate a banana when he got to work. A couple handfuls of peanuts. Sugar free pudding. 2 turkey sandwiches on wheat. An apple. Natural granola bar. Celery & carrots. Spaghetti with meat sauce (lean ground beef, whole grain pasta)and and salad.

Energy Levels: Ok.

Exercise: Weights (lower body). Cardio - 2.5 miles on elliptical.

Success: Making it through his 2nd day without coffee.

Challenge: Food choices and eating too much - especially at dinner. Also his low energy levels are an ongoing struggle (prior to AdvoCare).
