Nanea Marcial

Nanea is a relentless role model who says that it’s easy to lose track of tasks like what you’re eating, staying active enough, especially when life events get in the way.  That’s how she felt over 3 years ago, when she was going through a divorce and taking care of her newborn baby and two-year old son.  Wearing a size 14, Nanea didn’t feel like herself and needed a positive outlet.

My friend, Joette, told me about this 24-Day Challenge.  I was always slim growing up–she had never seen me this way, with a broken spirit and wearing a size 14.

Nanea was addicted to coffee, and drank too much of it for years.  After 24 days, she improved her diet, reduced her coffee intake, and dropped two sizes.  Shortly after her initial success, she continued working out but lost some momentum with her diet.

She began another 24-Day Challenge a couple of years later, knowing she needed more than just a workout regimen.  She kicked her coffee habit and replaced it with Spark.  She dropped another two sizes by continuously working out, eating three portioned meals and three small snacks a day.  She also cut out fried food and dairy.

She also increased the intensity of her workouts by exercising five days a week, competing in multiple Spartan races and 5ks and doing yoga on the weekends.  She continues to build lean muscle and has maintained a size six for over a year and a half with the help of Catalyst, Muscle Strength, and Post-Workout Recovery.

AdvoCare’s New Fit Line!

Hi there! Just finished up with AdvoCare’s National Success School 2017, and I wanted to write about AdvoCare’s latest product line called FIT.  These products will help you take the guesswork out of what to use before, during, and after you work out!

I received my FIT Pack today.  This is what I received:

img-pre.fafc2c8d648f126b2395fc962ecc1e84You use this 30-45 minutes prior to a workout.  This strawberry lemonade flavor is 20 calories and only 3g of sugar per stick pack. AdvoCare has used Stevia, not sucralose, for sweetening, and the caffeine derives from green tea, so this is more for people going to a plant-based diet.

img-intra.c3864b113a2dd73c3c0a2dc1d317b158This comes in a coconut lime flavor (yum) and is to be used while you’re working out.  This is 15 calories per stick pack, with only 2g of sugar.  One of the ingredients is coconut water powder, and, like the Pre-Workout, Stevia is used to sweeten.

img-post-chocolate.471ffa6e8091eb9f8fa864b492768ba0The Post-Workout Protein and Herbal Supplement comes in two flavors:  chocolate and cinnamon bun. I am a little burned out on chocolate, so I chose the cinnamon bun flavor!  You use this within one hour after a workout.  It can also benefit greatly in long-term recovery when consumed in the evening. This does contain milk, so I wouldn’t recommend this for those who are lactose intolerant.  One pouch is 100 calories and 3g of sugar, and contains Stevia also.

If you buy the bundle, it’s a total cost of $99, plus shipping and tax.  While supplies last you get a FREE cinch bag!  I will be trying these products after I am done with the cleansing portion of my Slim Down challenge, in one week.  I will inform you of what I think then!

Being a Role Model

It’s very easy to lose track of what you’re eating, how much activity you are involved in, etc.  That was me a few years ago, before I got involved with AdvoCare.  I had to deal with a very difficult manager, and I was stressed out dealing with my then teenage daughter.  I drank to deal with the stress, and that, along with eating too much sugar and drinking too much coffee, caused me to balloon up to a size 14.

My friends, Danny and Pamela Mears, introduced me to AdvoCare and told me about the 24-Day Challenge.  I knew I couldn’t continue on the way I was going, and AdvoCare does offer a money-back guarantee, so I decided to take the plunge.  My husband did it too for the support.  After 24 days, my diet improved, I stopped drinking alcohol, dropped down to one cup of coffee a day, and cut out the sugar.  I lost 8 pounds and 11 inches!  I felt so much better and was able to work out more now that I had gotten some of that weight off.  I continued eating healthier and working out.  This was August 2015.

I continued doing 24-Day Challenges every 90-120 days so my weight could keep dropping.  I had never been this big before, so I knew I wanted to get back into at least a size 8.  I still drink coffee, but I drink more Spark than I do coffee (one in the morning and one mid-afternoon).  I also eat 3 balanced meals a day and about 2-3 snacks a day. I eliminated fried and processed food, too.  I can’t hardly stand the yucky feeling I get when I eat fried or processed food anymore!  It’s not worth it.

I now work out 5-6 days a week, have competed in a few 5Ks and am working on building up to a 10K.  I run 4 days a week and do weight training 2 days a week.  I have improved my endurance and strength and have maintained a size 8 for a year now.  I think those are great accomplishments for a 49 year old woman!  My favorite products are Spark, Catalyst, O2 Gold, and L-Arginine Extreme.

I am doing things now that I haven’t done since I was in the Army, which was over 30 years ago.  Not only am I back in shape, but I have my spirit back and have hope.  I have regained control and can be a good role model to others.

Overall, I give God the glory, because He is the One who gave me the strength during my times of weakness.  I can be joyful in my heart because I know He is the One in charge!  Amen.

Is AdvoCare Rehydrate better than Gatorade?

It is Memorial Day weekend, which is the unofficial start of summer.  The temperature is now 86 degrees Fahrenheit, and it’s 10:01 PM here in North Central Texas!  If you are spending any time outdoors, it is important to stay hydrated.  Gatorade is a very popular brand, so I wanted to put up a comparison between it and AdvoCare Rehydrate, which is the official sports drink of Major League Soccer.

Rehydrate vs Gatorade

So, based on these facts, I would definitely recommend Rehydrate over Gatorade. Not to mention that Rehydrate has only 6 grams of sugar compared to Gatorade’s 32 grams!

Rehydrate is part of AdvoCare’s Active Line.

Nikki Tigg-Runner and AdvoCare Distributor

Nikki and I have some things in common; we started on AdvoCare with a 24-Day Challenge, and we are now runners thanks to AdvoCare.  Here is Nikki’s story:

Nikki is a mom who never played much with her son because she was always tired.  She was tired of wasting time and disappointing him, so she knew she needed something to energize her.  She took a chance on AdvoCare in March 2013 with a 24-Day Challenge.  She didn’t want to lose a lot of weight, but she said she was a “fluffy momma” and needed to gain confidence.  She reached her goal weight three months later by cutting out the sugary cereals she ate for breakfast and dinner with proteins and low-fat options.  She also became more active.

In three years, I ran a 5K and a half marathon.  Before AdvoCare, you would have never convinced me I could complete either of those.  Taking products like Catalyst and eating more complex carbs and protein gave me energy–Post-Workout Recovery allowed me feel great enough to actually work out two days in a row!

She has taken a break from running due to some back and knee issues, so she focuses on nutrition.  Taking care of her body in the kitchen helps her stay on track even when she’s not at the gym.

My AdvoCare Website

I have completed two 5K runs in the month of April.  On April 8, I received first place in my age group in the Purple Plume 5K run in Frisco, Texas.  Also in Frisco, Texas, at The Star (Dallas Cowboys practice arena), I ran in the inaugural Draft Day 5K on April 29.  There were over 1500 runners, and I placed 516th overall!  I thought that was pretty good for someone who didn’t run until about a year ago!

 

Purple Plume 5K Run, Frisco, TX

5K Medal

Well, I ran my first 5K in MANY years yesterday.  I was doing to help some friends’ boys raise money for their high school band.  I have been running for some time now with my dog, Lucy.

Lucy

I ran a good pace, but not fast by any means.  I have never been fast, and I know at 49 years old, I won’t be.  I was like the “Little Engine That Could”, saying to myself, “I think I can, I think I can!”  Some good music helps a lot too!  I did not stop, I just kept going.  Lucy and I usually run five miles, 3 days a week, so it’s not hard for me to run 3.1 miles.

When the time came for the announcement of winners, I was just sitting in the stands resting and visiting with people.  I enjoy meeting new folks.  When the time came for my age group (44-49), I was listening to the winners; the names were called for 3rd place, then 2nd place, then it became time for 1st place.

“The winner for first place is Lori McCall!”  I almost passed out.  I wasn’t expecting it, but it really made my day.  My friends were so happy for me, and when I posted this on facebook, I got 125 likes.  I hardly ever get that many likes.  Most of my friends know that I went down 47 pounds in weight, and I have also had two bunionectomies.  I haven’t really run since I was in the Army, and that was 30 years ago.

I really enjoying running now, and I want to keep doing it and keep improving.  I know a 5K isn’t that long, but it takes time to work up to, and I would like to do a 10K in the next few months.  I want to tell you what products I am taking to help improve my health and performance.
