Lean in 13. It's #GDFR



Sooo... looks like Monday March 21st is go time.    Just a quick little check in...

If you're joining us and need to start sooner or later because of life and all of it's challenges, by all means...


  One week to psyche yourself up and get your goodies.


This also will not interfere with St. Patty's Day for all of you green beer drinkers. 
    Just looking' out for 'ma people.


The Dirty Truth

1.  This program isn't easy.    In fact, it's hard.   Really hard.   So if you don't feel mentally prepared, it may not be the best time.  However, there is definitely strength in numbers so if you're teetering, come join us.   We're in it together and in it to win it.  It'll be twice as hard without support and company so why not come play?  

2.   It takes prep.   And planning.  And cooking.    You'll be eating a lot of the same foods every day.   It's not exciting.  I'm not gonna lie.    However, on the positive, there is a little comfort in knowing what's coming next every day.   It's all pretty much meticulously planned for you.  To me this means minimal room for error.  


3.  It's not an Advocare-created plan.   It was created by lean and mean independent distributors, nutritionists, and trainers that saw the awesome possibilities of combining carb cycling combined with these awesome products.


Light at the End of the Tunnel:

1.  It's 13 days.    It's only 13 days.   We can do anything for 13 days.

2.   By day 14, you're going to be leaner than you thought possible.  #springbreak #summer #abs #whatwhat  Even a few days in, you'll see a difference.   #hardcorefact

3.   This plan contains a lot of various supplements so we can modify.   It's not one size fits all.    Our group Facebook board is where we trouble shoot.  And vent.  And celebrate.    You can also shoot me an email-  advocarerunner1@gmail.com

4.   You're going to feel nothing but amazing when it's said and done.   Sticking to something difficult for 13 days is going to make you feel strong in itself.   Feeding your body real food and real supplements for 13 straight days....   Big yes on top of that.    Did I mention that we'll be drinking all the water???   Yes, we'll be drinking a ton of water.   This too will make us feel amazing.


5.   Most of the products that are needed are probably already laying around in your Advo cupboard.   
MNS
Thermoplus
Catalyst
Muscle Gain
Spark
Oasis

*If you're not sure which MNS to use or you are sensitive in general, I would definitely recommend MNS 3.  I haven't decided which route I'll go but may play around with all three.


Just wanted to check in, say hey girl hey, and give you guys the debts on the start date.

Hope you're all having a great weekend.  It's pretty much spring here in the 614.   Sounds like an 8 miler to me.   

Laters.

Where I've Been and What's Next



Hey Cats,

Meow.

It's been a minute. 

Like a zillion of them to be exact.


Honestly, I feel like I just hit "publish" on that Jan. 31 post and what/what?  It's practically St. Patrick's Day.

What have I been up to?


1.   Making sure the right stuff is in those backpacks.      And basically keeping humans alive and watered in general.      Manning homework, sports, clean underwear...you know the drill.   Turns out that stuff takes time.  


2.  Moving.   Yes.   This in itself is equivalent to running 10 marathons in a month.  I swear it is.  Or maybe I'm old now?    Don't answer that.
 We moved into an awesome house in a great neighborhood  and we're finally feeling a teensy bit settled.  However,  sometimes when I least expect it, another box filled with "stuff" that needs a home seems to fall right out of the sky.   

3.   Doing that yoga challenge!   Remember how I mentioned it in my last post?    Well, I kinda loved it and I swear it made those crossfit and running aches and pains just a little less painful.   Not to mention that I felt just a little more centered every morning.  

I missed a couple days in all but not bad.  Not bad at all considering that yoga and mobility in general have always taken a backseat to running and crossfit.    
But I'm making time and most days it's only between 20 and 30 minutes.    Did I mention that I usually do it in my pajamas?   

Huge win right there.

If you're interested in the program, it's free.   And Adriene is now my best friend.  She doesn't know it but we're all good.
   She's funny.   She's got her own little non-crunchy yoga vibe.   And she's funny.  Did I mention that?




4.  Other various random activities...


Hanging out with #Runnerdog in my pj's...
That #RD is so desperately needing a wig busting.  Don't call the ASPCA just yet.  It's happening this week. 





Crossfit Open-ing

Yes, it's back.  

2 brutal workouts down... 3 to go.   Heaven help me.  Nighttime Recovery help me too.




Disney on Ice-ing

If you've got girls, it's pretty much the law.








Okay, sooooo........ let's get serious.






There's currently a big group in my Advo crossline doing Lean in 13.       
This has clearly inspired several of us.    
They're already looking legit amazing.

The big question.


Who is Lean in 13 meant for???

The Lean in 13 program helps to put your metabolism back on the right track and pushes your body into an intense “fat burning” mode.
1. To Jump Start a new weight loss program
2. To break through a weight loss plateau
3. To lose a few inches just in time for vacation
4. To lose a few inches and recover from a vacation 

Brutally honest disclaimer----
I've tried this plan in the past and did not succeed.    I threw in the towel about halfway in.   Granted, I prob wasn't in the right mindset.  And I was just kind of over it in general.   However, was I noticing changes?  Yes.   Did I hate eating the same thing almost every day?  Yes.       Did I miss the peanut butter deep down from within?     Yes. 
We've got our culprit.


BUT.... I've given it some serious thought this time around.     Pretty sure I'm down.    If you're even remotely interested in being down with the plan with me check out www.choosethechallenge.com.  


SO much good info.  Click on Lean in 13 under the "challenges" tab. 
You can see the daily plan, supplements, food recommendations,etc.  


It's basically a carb cycling program, coupled with products designed for fat burning, appetite control, and gaining muscle.   It's all designed to help you lean out like no other.    This plan will work best if you're an experienced challenger and somewhat close to your goal weight.
