It's the weekend and boy am I gearing up for a grand Easter day tomorrow. My morning started off with my energy drink spark, morning vitamins, meal replacement shake, and the simple exercises; plus walking my daily mile. I have also been steadily working on my upcoming projects. I have had two amazing project offers come in this week so I am progressively working on which one to take. I went and seen "Love, Simon". I loved the movie and it did place a few things into light about my own life as a gay man.
Snacks for the day was a Nature Valley mixed fruit bar, mixed fruits, and cucumbers. Final meal for the evening was a small salad. My weigh in today was a steady 183.
MEAL FOR THE DAY: MEAT SANDWICH WITH SWEET POTATO FRIES.
Grill a slice of honey ham, four slices of turkey bacon, and a small handful of pepperoni's.
Wheat bread with a small spread of mayo and mustard. Add lettuce and pickles along with the grilled meat.
Served with Sweet Potato fries baked.
I hope everyone has a great weekend, see you tomorrow!

These two days are my vast. Basically I am watching my calories and only eating 600 calories per day for two days. Before the vast I started at a weight of 198 and tomorrow I will be posting my new weight loss. My morning started with exercise, my vitamins, a meal replacement shake, and my energy drink spark. I ate 2 Nature Valley fruit mixed nuts bars, and one scoop of Brown rice with chicken each day. one scoop of Chicken rice with half a cucumber in apple vinegar and a pinch of Tony's Seasoning each day for a dinner. Once you get hungry try eating fruits or veggies, water is also good for filling in the gaps.
I felt a little tired but great once I started finding something to do. Keep your fluids going and keep active. I managed with business as usual and just maintained an active two days. Overall it wasn't a bad vast. Keeping it up and totally pleased with the results.

PLEASE NOTE, I am nearly describing my own experience with the Advocare products, Advocare does not endorse my work nor am I a spokesperson for the company.
During the first ten days of my program with Advocare I was on the Herbal Cleanse. This cleanse consisted of three healthy meals, as you will see in my previous posts dated "DAY ONE - TEN", exercise (Which was 10 push-ups, 10 squats, and 10 jumping jacks.) daily, walking at least one mile daily, plenty of water (your water in take should be double your body weight so my weight started at 218 so I made sure to drink 10 20oz of water or more a day.), a fiber drink, your vitamins, and your cleanse pills. Make sure you maintain on portioning your food in take, keeping less than 15g of sugar per meal, less than 2000 calories per day, and less than 400mg on sodium per meal.
