What Just Happened?


What's up, Buttercups??



What just happened??




Is November really basically over??    Cuz I'm pretty sure I just posted on November 1st and it was... yesterday?


We've got so much shenanny activity happening, it's not even funny.


The AdvoRunner Virtual Turkey Trot was bigger than last year.  



 In fact, I'm still sorting through all of the entries so that the drawing can be fair and square.  I don't wanna missuh-one-uh-you.


Aiming to do the drawing either later today or tomorrow.     Don't leave me.


Of course, my own Turkey Trot happened in these parts and it was awesome.  And horrible. 

Awesome because isn't it always?   Horrible because my friend and I somehow ended up getting sucked in with a Boston Marathon kinda girl who wouldn't let us leave her.   Liz, we love/ hate you.

We really wanted a nice little leisure run.   


Instead we ended up running 7:40 minute miles.   






The Diet Bet went off pretty awesome and our pot is almost $700.       





Giddy up for winners on that too.   We officially end on Monday.


Ps-  I'm thinking of hosting another one in January for a post New Years start date?

You don't have to use Advo products to play.  (although you're missing out...) 
   Whatcha think?


Who doesn't love gambling???



Speaking of Advocare...









I know.   Rumor on the street is that they'll be gone before the 1st.


And White Chocolate Peppermint finally made it's return (!!!)

I know.



If you're a busy mom that chases monkeys all day, have a job like me where you live outta your car, OR you pretty much don't have a hot second to make lunch, breakfast, brunch, linner, or a snack during the day... you're gonna need these.    22 g protein and pretty much the perfect portion of balanced nutrition.        200 calories.    Here's the deal... we all know I'm a haus.   And I swear these keep me full until I can make a rational decision.



$79 gets you $69 worth of Spark... PLUS 20% off anything you ever order.  Including these delicious White Chocolate Peppermint drinks of heaven.   


Still confused?   Message me and I'll help.    advocarerunner1@gmail.com

Plus, I'll add you to my team page and we'll all be one big happy family and live happily ever after in peppermint bliss.




Thanksgiving came and went.



We had such a fun day.    Oh and ps-  it was basically summer in Ohio on Thanksgiving day.    The weather was #OTH.   Thankful.  For many things.




Other important things....

You guys need this MAC holiday set lipgloss IMMEDIATELY!  I can't stress the importance here.








This is the Nude set.   There are other varieties but this was by far the most versatile and beautiful.

And here's the deal.... I paid $35 for this a week ago.  It's currently on sale for Black Friday for $26.   Say wahhhh?




KEEP is having a Black Friday sale as well, which apparently never happens.  On the fence?   Today is the day.    50% off some of my faves.



I wear the bangle in some capacity every single day.  Not lying.


Not on sale right now but I'm also obsessed with the believe bar. And cobalt, per usual.     Right?




May as well knock out your Christmas shopping from the comfort of your couch.    



I'm also working on my Crossfit comp post.  It's coming.  


I basically spent half the day like this...



And pretty much made this face all day...


Nobody said Crossfit was pretty...  But somehow we love it.




Hope you all had an amazing holiday with those you love!

November! And We've Got a Post!




Coming out strong right outta the gate!!!

This was me approximately four hours ago.


Legit.



Turns out that now that the official "fall back" has hit that 5:30 p.m. is  the new midnight.


Halloween.   

All kinds of fun.

And all kinds of Milk Duds.   

This ain't your first rodeo.   You guys know the Milk Duds get me every year.


Three days of shenanigans = two tired monkeys, two belly aches,  and a tired mama who was ready to hit the hay at 5:30 p.m.   As mentioned, this is technically the new midnight so this was practically acceptable. 



Soo....the little one was all prepped and ready to be a mermaid.   Then at the last minute, she decided that mermaid costumes are for babies and they're super embarrassing and...all the kids are gonna think she's a toddler...  and.... crocodile tears....and sobbing on the floor....and.... the school party starts in like 5 minutes....and.... I just bought this God forsaken costume from Pottery Barn Kids and you're gonna be cute and wear it just like we planned....

Next think you know, my butt crack is sweating and I'm whipping out a witch costume from the toy room circa 2012.   


It's never easy is it?    But somehow we sacrificed and she did end up a mermaid for approximately 30 minutes the next day.  

So winning...kinda.



Diet bet starts tooooomorrrow.....




The pot is right at $500 and still growing.     STILL time to get in!  

Missed the story?   Here ya go, yo.




Now that it's November, we can start getting serious about talking about how we're gonna get our Christmas shopping done early...

.... And then still wait till December to panic.


But seriously... we CAN start talking about how we're gonna get our Turkey Trot on! 


Start getting your plan mapped out.    It's #GDFR.


In case you  missed the deets.

Run/ walk/ crawl/ move forward in any manner.    Must be the distance of a 5 k and must happen on Thanksgiving Day.  

Post a pic on my Facebook page or post a pic on Instagram with #AdvorunnerTurkeyTrot.  One of my monkeys will complete the live drawing.  


Two Prizes involved this year...  
1. One full 10 day cleanse! Who doesn't need to do a 10 day cleanse between Thanksgiving and Christmas????  Exxxxactly.   
2. My favorite running product with a side of Spark... 1 bottle of 02Gold and 1 box of Spark of your choice.  
Get your plan down! We're all in it together!


Did I tell you guys I've got a partner Crossfit Competition coming up??



I'm pretty pumped but this pretty much sums up my partner.   Da Crossfit PoPo.  I love her though.



This day is gonna be all kinds of awesome and hilarious.


I'll be giving you guys a full update on how I fueled once again.     I'll be anxious to compare my last comp and the products I used to this one.  


That is coming up in exactly 14 days so time to get serious up in here.





For my Diet Betters and 24 Day Challenge peeps... good luck tomorrow!   

For the rest of you...it's Monday.. give it hell!


xoxo
