I feel like there’s a misconception around the 24 Day Challenge and while yes, many people lose weight in the process, it’s really about so much more than that. And you can tell me if you think I’m wrong and that’s fine, but I want to share the other side of it.
1 – It’s about creating healthy habits, not dieting
For so many people, the biggest factor of weight loss or a healthy lifestyle comes down to their diet and what they are consuming. As soon as you start focusing your attention on what you’re putting into your body and focusing on clean, real foods, you’re going to start seeing results. Hands down.
2 – It’s about energy
Because who doesn’t want more energy to get through their day, their todo list, the FUN things they want to do in life?
3 – It’s not over on Day 25
You can’t tell me when you finish eating clean for 24 days, after seeing results and feeling boat loads of energy, that you have a desire to return to your old habits and lifestyle. I just don’t think that’s true. Instead, it comes down to moderation and a better handle of the 80/20.
4 – It’s about community
I’m not even kidding! These people are fantastic and truly supportive! From the Facebook group full of recipe ideas, motivation and support, to all of the phone calls and text messages, I feel like I’m surrounded by a group of people that truly care. They care about me, my health and my goals.
5 – It’s about how we FEEL
For me this is the biggest of them all. I know I don’t need to lose weight and that’s why the 24 Day Challenge has nothing to do with weight loss for me. It has to do with how I FEEL about myself. I’ve been indulging more the last few months and even if those indulgences were “cleaner” versions, they’re still treats and should be consumed as such, not on the regular. This is especially true when I know those kinds of things drag me down physically and mentally.
I’m not telling you that you have to do it. But I’m also not telling you that you shouldn’t. After seeing some amazing results and energy from the Advocare Performance Elite line, I had to give the 24 Day Challenge a try. If it helps me break bad habits, if it gives me more energy and I feel better about myself, then it’ll be totally worth it.
Have you ever tried the 24 Day Challenge?
What would you be looking for out of it?
Yes, for sure! While I’ll be using it post-baby to lose a little weight and get back to healthier eating, I will also be using it because it makes me feel GREAT! And it’s good for my fitness and all that jazz too 😉
Exactly! Obviously it’s great to help people lose some weight as well. But I don’t want flack for anyone who feels like that’s what I’m trying to do because I know I don’t really need to lose anything. 😉
the energy thing is the best result. everything is fresh you feel awake and you’ve created habits. great outlook on this!
Thanks, Laura!! It’s Day 4 and I’m already WIDE AWAKE and feeling energized!
I’m doing it right now – my first one! =) It will definitely be something to get used to, but I’m already loving the energy. MRS probably isn’t a good breakfast choice I’m learning, but I’ll figure it out as I go! I’m excited for the energy + CF performance that could come from this. We will have to chat Performance Elite line, Katie!
Yes we do!! I haven’t tried all of them yet but I’m slowly working my way through. O2 Gold and Nighttime Recovery are WAY UP there on the list though!
