So, after much deliberation, I decided that I’m going to dive head first in a 24-Day Challenge with AdvoCare!
After last week’s post about my current weight loss/fitness “lifestyle”, my fire has been reignited and I don’t want another summer to come and go where I’m feeling so blah about myself. I’ll also be starting the Tone It Up Bikini Series later this month with my friend/TIU partner (Hi Katie!) and I think the 24-Day Challenge will be the perfect segway to get me over this little speed bump of a plateau.
For the past three or so years that I’ve been consciously trying to lose weight, I always get to this point and can’t seem to get down much further. I stick around the same three pounds and bounce back and forth between them. To be honest, I usually get so fed up after a few weeks (which I’m hitting at this point …) and end up gaining the weight back because it feels like nothing I do works.
I’ve tried the 24-Day Challenge in the past and it didn’t work for me because I wasn’t committed, but I am NOW. It’s an investment (even with my discount as a distributor that I get), but I think it’ll be worth it. I’m starting the challenge on Monday, April 6 with my best friend (and hundreds of other people) and I’m excited to see what happens! If nothing else, I’m hoping it gets me past this plateau and into a better mindset in time for the Bikini Series!
I’ll be making an effort to let you know how things are going and I’m thinking of setting aside a post every week (probably on Wednesdays, since that seems to be when the healthy lifestyle bug hits me and I want to write about it). I hope you’ll be interested! If you’re not, I’ll be back to my normal ramblings about favorites and online dates and Thursday thoughts every other day of the week. 🙂
Have you ever done anything to push past a plateau?
Weight loss/fitness aside, do you make an effort to go after what you want, even if it’s scary?
