AdvoCare

If you have watched basketball, football or Nascar, then more than likely you’ve seen an advertisement for AdvoCare. If you’ve seen any of my previous posts, there’s a chance you’ve heard me mention AdvoCare.

What is AdvoCare you ask? AdvoCare was founded in Plano, Texas in 1993. They provide nutritional, weigh-management, sports performance, and skin care products that are backed by the latest scientific knowledge and ingredients and created safe and effective. AdvoCare products help to improve lives through superior nutrition and wellness.

How I got started with AdvoCare
A friend of mine offered to share products with me to try and I was instantly hooked on AdvoCare’s Spark. Spark is a vitamin and amino acid supplement energy drink mix. I tried the grape, pink lemonade, and fruit punch flavors. You just mix one service with 8 ounces of water and drink. The amount of focus and energy I had was amazing. No more groggy feeling, I was ready to tackle the day. If I’m being completely honest, I wasn’t a fan of the meal replacement shakes, they just aren’t for me. However, Kasey loves them and has one daily. He really enjoys them and their many flavors. Like with all things, one product isn’t going to work for everyone but for me. I knew I would be ordering Spark and I wanted to share Spark with friends and family, so why not get a discount while doing so as well? That’s just what I did. Back in Oct. 2015 I signed up as a distributor so that now when I purchase products for myself or others, they are discounted.


I am still learning more and trying different AdvoCare products. I am currently in a 24-day challenge with the same friend who first shared AdvoCare with me. She has been an amazing accountability partner during the challenge so far and I will share with you more about the challenge once we’ve finished. There is such a wonderful support group and I’ve been able to reconnect with a few ladies that I went to high school with. I am hoping that not only out of a more healthier lifestyle, I will establish long lasting friendships as well.

I am going to add a tab at the top of my site along with my Young Living and Photography business information incase you want to read more about AdvoCare. I will link my site there as well and if you have any questions or would like to try a product on me, please just ask!

Have a day full of sunshine!

Advocare

I had to take some time tonight to share with you my first experience with as titled above, Advocare. Before I do that though, let me start with a little back story. 

As you know, I am currently in the Weight Watchers program and attend weekly meetings. I have been in for a month and have lost a total of ten pounds and am very happy with the progress I’ve seen and the program itself. However, there are still moment where I feel sluggish and just worn out. A friend of mine reached out to me and shared a little bit about Advocare and how it’s benefited and changed her life. I was skeptical at first but willing to try some products that she offered to send. I felt like no matter how bad my experiences had been in the past with weight loss products and meal replacement shakes, if she felt so strong about this product then who was I to doubt it before giving it a try myself?

Yesterday I received the package from her and was immediately excited to try the drink mixes, Spark. She sent me a few flavors along with a couple meal replacement shakes. I must admit, I am still apprehensive about the shakes but I’m going to put that aside and give them a shot.

 

With school back in session for both my daughter and myself, on top of cheerleading practices, planning a birthday party, and working full time, I’m not getting as much rest as I should. Oddly enough, I overslept this morning and felt sluggish and just exhausted. I decided to give the Advocare Spark Energy Drink Mix a shot. First flavor, grape. 
When I opened the package I could immediately smell the vitamins and literally told myself that I was not going to like it. I poured 8 ounces of water into my blender bottle, poured the spark packet it, tightened the lid and gave it a good shake. Opened the lid and again, got a whiff of the vitamins and to be honest, at this point I wasn’t that excited anymore. I just knew that first taste would be gross and I would be pouring out. I took a deep breath and took a sip.

To my surprise, it’s delicious! Like really, really good. I finished the 8 ounces in less than a minute because I kept wanting more. No lie, this is no sales pitch. Just an honest review from a very skeptical and picky tasting person. I was shocked. Within no time I felt more awake and that sluggish feeling I had before was no longer penetrating through me. I felt well rested and ready to face the day. 

 

Not only was it delicious, really impacted how I felt in a positive way, but it fits into my Weight Watchers program. What more could you ask for? I have no idea where this initial experience with Advocare will lead me but I do know that I am incredibly thankful for my friend who shared Advocare with me and was willing to provide samples because she feels so strongly about this program and its products. If I would’ve allowed my initial thoughts to take over just based on past experiences and the smell, I really would be missing out.

So there you have it folks, I am a fan of Advocare’s Spark energy drink mix. Grape was delicious and guess what, so is the fruit punch!

   

If you are an Advocare user, I’d love to hear what products are your favorite and least favorite. I will be trying the chocolate meal replacement shake in the next few days and will share my experience with that as well. I’ll keep you updated on where this beginning experience leads and I’d love to hear from you on your experiences!

Until next time, xo!
