Day 19 of Advocare 24 day challenge

Day 19... Man I know I would be able to tell the difference more if I just went to the gym. This move has really thrown me for a loop. BUT, I do not have Caleb all weekend so I plan on going and checking out the new gym by my new house and using it all weekend long!!!

In the mean time... Read another success story!!

Jason Butler: I have been on the Advocare products for about 3.5 months.  I always thought I was in pretty good shape before and was just a hefty/big build guy.  Boy was I wrong.  After my first 24-Day Challenge I dropped from 240lbs. to 215lbs (25lbs. lost), lost 4 inches in my waist, and went from 29% body fat to 20%.  Continuing on the products I am now down to 204lbs.(bringing the total to 36lbs lost) and will be below 200 before the New Year, I have lost another 2 inches in my waist (bringing the total to 6 in lost), and I am now down to 18% body fat (that is an 11% drop in body fat % in a little over 3 mths.) and still dropping.  Advocare and the products have changed mine and my family's lives.  Our kids love the products as well and we have transformed our home into a healthy living atmosphere!  Greatest decision I ever made in my life to try these, cause man they sure did work and make me wanna work!!  Attached are some pictures you can use of me and Brooke.  Her story is very similar to Brittney's.....very petite and small but she has lost a little over 7lbs, 3inches and her body fat % has dropped from 25% to 19%.  And she didn't think she had much to lose!  Hope this helps and I love being able to pour into people's lives and help them make a decision to make a change!

Days 17 &18 of Advocare 24 day challenge

Life - it is what gets in the way whenever you are trying to do something you really want to do. How do we deal with this? You just keep pushing on. I am not going to lie, this part 2 of this challenge has been hard for me. I am the worlds worst at remembering to take pills... Yesterday, I left my packet at home so I went without. Today I am restarting. I am really trying to stay on track but life always seems to throw me a curve ball, but in no way am I going to strike out. I am going to keep swinging until I cant swing anymore. (Like the baseball analogy, Haha)!

Brittney Coe - I work with Brittney and I remember the 1st day I started The Caffey Group, I sat in her office and we spoke about Advocare and weight loss. Back then I was nowhere near ready to lose weight. After I had Caleb, I decided I was ready but wanted to go at it alone. So I did, and I lost the 101 pounds. After losing the weight I started having a hard time with maintaining. Brittney and I spoke again and this time I was interested. Brittney shared stories with me about how it has changed her life and how she has never felt healthier. I decided to join her at a mixer and after that night I was sold. The story that sold me was not only hers but a couple who were over 50 years old stood up and spoke about how they did the challenge and worked together and lost almost 50lbs. They are grandparents and they stood up and changed their lives. Just very impressive! 

Brittney is a mom of a little boy, Brayden, who turned 1 this past summer. She is a very petite woman and when you see her you would NEVER think that she would be a person to have a story to tell... but she does. In college she had gained some weight and she wanted it gone. She started selling Advocare mainly for the discount for her own products. She recently got really dedicated and is selling the products as a business and making some good money. I am actually signed up to sell under Brittney. To read more about Brittney go to!

Days 13-16 of Advocare 24 day challenge

Guess who is back... me!!!

Man moving was a pain in my tush! Actually the moving process was fine, I am blessed with amazing friends who basically did everything for me. Word to the wise though, never move with a toddler present. He was so sad when we packed up his stuff. Poor kid thought we were getting rid of everything he owned. Another word to the wise, do NOT do this challenge while moving. I stayed on track with my pills but my food slipped really badly. I am human and I can admit when I have messed up... well, I messed up! But today is a new day and I am ready to take the bull by the horns. I still have 8 days left of this challenge and I going to finish it out strong.

One thing I can really say about it all is that I have so much more energy. I am hardly ever tired, I feel so relaxed, I just feel really good. I am addicted to the Spark energy drinks, they taste like kool-aid and I loved kool-aid growing up! I also love that I can fit into my jeans without being nervous. I love that I dont have to lay on my bed and suck in just to zip and button. 

Advocare is a great product, not just for losing weight but to feel like the best you that you can be. The vitamins I am taking daily are something I wouldn't normally just pick up from Walmart because I am not "smart" in that area of what to take and when. Great thing about Advocare is that they lay it all out for you and label the package! So easy! 

If you are ready to feel better and maybe even lose some weight, I am here to help... Advocare is here to help!!!

Tomorrow: Brittney Coe's story with pictures!!!

Day 12 of Advocare 24 day challenge

Not much to report today other than the fact that I like phase 2 WAY better than phase 1. Advocare has laid out the MNS packets in a way that its so easy to take them with you where ever you go. I feel great today and I am not bloated or anything. I really am falling in love with this 24 day challenge. 

I will not be blogging Day 13 or 14 due to me moving this weekend but I will be back Monday! My plan is to stay on track as great as I can this weekend and not have a screw up day like I did last weekend. I am however, going to have my cheat meal...! Hello Fat Girl Friday!!!

Oh and BTW just to keep you interested, I took pictures last night for myself and WOW I can tell a difference. I am so excited for the 21st to come around so I can share my pictures with all of you. - CHECK IT OUT!!!

Stories to come next week: Brittney Coe (yep, you are going to be a story Brittney!) and I am going to talk with Jason Butler (a guy I work with) who is currently on his way to getting below 200 pounds by January 1st!!

Day 11 of Advocare 24 day challenge - Cleanse Results!!!

Okay people settle down, I am about to announce my results from phase 1.... 
The 10 Day Cleanse!!!

Weight: Day 1 - 185.4 & Day 11 - 176.4 = Total lost: 9 pounds
Waist: Stayed the same at 41 inches

HipsDay 1 - 44.5 inches & Day 11 - 42.0 inches = Total lost: 2.5 inches
ChestDay 1 - 40.5 inches & Day 11 - 39.0 inches = Total lost: 1.5 inches
Left thigh: Stayed the same at 23 inches
Left bicep: Stayed the same at 13 inches

So, I lost a total of 9 pounds and 4 inches!!! I think that was a pretty darn good 10 days for me, even with me slipping up twice! 

Today I start phase 2, taking the supplements at breakfast and lunch. I still plan on eating semi clean but I am also going to reintroduce Fat Girl Friday. Everyone needs a cheat meal at least once a week or you will end up breaking down and giving up all together. Someone wise once told me to look at it this way, you have 6 meals a day, 7 day a week.... that comes out to be 42 meals a week. If you cheat on 1 or 2 of those meals, you are still eating 40 healthy meals! Seems okay to me!! Oh and this someone was Mr. Larry North himself. Don't know who he is? Go Google him!!

Advocare - I am going to be joining up with some of my fellow Advocare people and starting in a couple of days, I will be not only blogging about my journey but also about their journey on the 24 Day Challenge! I have quiet a few people I work with who have done this challenge and have succeed with flying color. I will be posting their pictures along with before and after numbers. So stay tuned!!

If you are interested in what Advocare has to offer you, please feel free to contact me! I would love to talk to you more! Or if you just want to go on and order go to 

New Years is right around the corner, are you ready to make a change for 2012?! My goal in 2011 was for it to be my last year being overweight...EVER! And now, I am going into 2012 in my healthy weight range for my height and I am not stopping there!! Make 2012 your year!!!

Day 10 of Advocare 24 day challenge

Today is the last day of the cleanse (just in case you haven't been keeping track)! Tomorrow I will start phase 2 of the 24 day challenge. I am really looking forward to that part because its not as strict and I do not have to drink that fiber drink again! Oh by the way if you have a strong stomach, make sure you read the last paragraph today because its a story about the fiber drink from my boss. I almost threw up a little when he told it to me, so of course that means I have to share it with you!!

I have a new rule at my house... NO CHOCOLATE EVER! Not for me, not for Caleb, not for ANYONE! I bought Caleb this bag of coal (chocolate) for his stocking. Well there I am last night watching a movie and what do I do?? I eat the entire bag of coal. Why, you might ask... BECAUSE IT WAS THERE! Not good Jordan... not good! So my workout (cardio) I did after work yesterday was just wasted on a bag of coal. But hey, at least I worked out! From here on out, chocolate will not be welcomed into my house. 

Tomorrow I will go over the process of the last 14 days of the challenge. How it will work, what I can eat, what supplements I will be taking and everything else. I will also be posting my measurements and weight (no pictures just yet) from the end of the cleanse. So don't forget to come back tomorrow.

Fiber story - Okay so I went upstairs to meet with my boss and while up there I told him I was doing the Advocare 24 Day Challenge. He did it awhile back and lost 35 lbs and he didn't stop there. Now when you see him, you hardly recognize that it is him. Anyways, while up there I told him I liked everything so far EXCEPT the fiber drink. He laughed and said "Do you want to know what NOT to do?" and I answered "sure" not knowing he was about to gross me out. Now you all think its about going #2, right? Well, you are wrong. He goes into the story saying that he was in a rush and so he mixed all his drinks (meal replacement shake, spark and fiber) the night before. He woke up, shook up his spark and drank it. 30 minutes later, he shook up his shake and drank it. Then he went to shake up his fiber drink... it had turned into gelatin! GROSS! I wish I could say the story ended there... he then proceeds to tell me that he ate the gelatin!!! WAM BAM NO THANK YOU MA'AM!!!! Can you imagine?! The drink is like clumpy vomit, and then gelatin form... barf-o-rama!! That is really only something a man would do, a dedicated one at that.

Day 9 of Advocare 24 day challenge

Today and tomorrow then I am officially DONE with the 1st phase of this challenge. I always knew I could do it but, it just feels great knowing I have accomplished something that a few years ago I would have thrown to the side after a day or 2. Actually I probably would've quit after drinking the 1st Fiber drink. I think you have to be really dedicated to being healthy to drink that stuff. But, tomorrow is my last day of it and all the angels in heaven are rejoicing right along with me.

Today is going great so far. Well, to be honest... I left my Spark at home and so I snooped around some Co-Workers desk and finally found some. Thanks Autumn! Pink Lemonade 1st thing in the morning on an empty stomach isn't really how I would have liked to start my day, but better than nothing!!

Last night I realized that my AB video was already packed and at my new house (oh by the way, I am moving) and so I couldn't do my workout. Caleb was already in bed and so I opened up Pinterest (oh how I love Pinterest) and found a workout. It was 20 seconds of each: squats, mountain climbers, high knees and jumping jacks. I did this workout 4 times and then did my own ab's. It may not have been what I had planned but, its better than nothing!

That is my new thing for today... "Its better than nothing!" You may not get the HUGE results you want but any results are better than nothing. You may not get the presents you want from Christmas, but any presents are better than nothing. Next time you are disappointed in something stop and think about all the people in the world who go without daily. Be thankful for what you are blessed with and remember something is always better than nothing!

REPEAT - Day 8 of Advocare 24 day challenge

Yesterday was suppose to be Day 8 (start of part 3 of my 10 day cleanse). Well, it is know going to be known as “the day Jordan decided to act like didn’t exist”… Let me just run you through my weekend.

Saturday, I did great. I even went out to the bar and saw Wade Bowen play. I didn’t drink or eat anything bad. I was the DD and at about 2:30 in the morning Sunday, I made a pit stop at Whataburger (hahaha Jamie) for the drunks I had in the car with me. Well while making the order, I felt a hunger pain. I ordered me a chicken biscuit, why? I do not know but I did. Then I finally made it to bed about 5 am Sunday morning. Slept until about 11 and made it home after noon. I had a shake for “breakfast” and went on with my day. I had to go to work and turn in reports, I made it to the gym, and then decided to go grocery shopping (because I had NO food at my house). When I went to check out, I realized that my money, debit card and license are in my jeans from last night that I left at my friends house. So I had to leave there with no groceries and go home. I got my card back later that night BUT it was to late to take Caleb to the store. So I made due with a chocolate bar and a piece of chicken. Healthy right?!

So that is why I am repeating Day 8 today.

Repeat Day 8 is going good so far, thank goodness to the stash of food I have in my desk. I have plans tonight to do my ab video and Caleb and I will be making a trip to the store. I am not going to let 1 bad day ruin this all for me… instead I am picking up from where I messed up and deciding to start over. Because isn’t that what life is all about? None of us are perfect, we mess up and stumble all the time. But when we do so, we pick ourselves up and try, try again. Why wouldn’t weight loss be the same?

Day 7 of the Advocare 24 Day Challenge

Today is the last day of part 2 of the 10 day cleanse. That means tomorrow I have to start drinking that awful fiber drink again for 3 more days! Gross...

I won't lie, yesterday was H-A-R-D for me. 1st I went and ate at a Mexican restaurant for lunch with my real Dad. I ordered a Rico Salad with no bacon bits and grilled chicken and the dressing on the side. Hard came into play when I saw what my Dad ordered... 3 of the best enchiladas they had. Then I get back to work and I hear the sweets in the break room calling my name. I didn't cave but it was hard to tune them out. Then last night I had no plans and so I moved stuff into my new house. Hard came to visit me again, when I was driving home and really wanting to stop at sonic for ice cream... But I didn't stop. Instead I went home and finished my Christmas cards and went to be at 9! The things you gotta do to keep your mind off food...

Today is a bit easier, but the again it's not even noon! I will be out and about today so I have packed my handy dandy lunch box. I have my snacks and water ready at my disposal. I have lunch plans with a friend and we are hitting up Jason's Deli. Dinner is still undecided but I promise you this, I won't cheat! 

3.5 days left of the 10 day cleanse and then I can start part 2 of this challenge. I am looking forward to December 20th!

Day 6 of Advocare 24 day challenge

1st and foremost, if you EVER decide to do this Advocare 24 Day Challenge make sure and drink your Spark energy drink in the afternoon. I got so busy yesterday that I forgot to drink mine. BIG MISTAKE! I went and worked out (might I say, I think I am getting back into the grove) and then by 8 P.M. I was ready for bed. I took a bath and was in bed by 9 P.M. Lesson learned, I wont forget my afternoon Spark again. 

Day 6 - Going into the weekend usually scares me. The weekend is when you back track and think "its okay if I eat bad, I'll just restart on Monday." I will NOT do that this weekend. I have already prepared myself mentally and I have all my meals planned out. I am use to having Fat Girl Friday (my 1 cheat meal a week) but while on this cleanse I am not even doing that. So this might get hard, but isn't "hard" the place where you really start to find out what you are made of?! 

Side note... so yesterday I was talking to Lo (as she was being mean to me and making me do these AWFUL declined sit ups) about how the choices in your life can touch so many other people. How my choice to become healthy, Facebook about it, blog about it, etc... has helped so many people start their own journey. I post my blog and hardly ever receive comments on the actual site, but I get Facebook messages telling me how I am inspiring. I get phone calls asking me for my "secrets". I receive text message telling me that because of my determination to change my life, they have decided to get off the couch and change their lives too. The list can go on and on. Just think, if you decide to change your life, how many lives will you be changing without even knowing it? When I set out on this journey I did it to change my life and to change the path for Caleb... helping all these other people along the way has been a huge plus!! God is so great in how he uses our lives to change other lives!

Okay I am done, I will step off my soap box (for today)... 

Y'all have a wonderful day, I know I will!!!

Day 5 of Advocare 24 day challenge

Last night I made double chocolate chip cookies stuffed with an Oreo. Talk about hard! Not the process of making the cookies but the strength it took to NOT eat one. But I overcame the smell, overcame how good I knew it would taste and completed the task without eating a single cookie. It might have helped that I put my scale on the floor next to me while I was baking them… I know I am crazy BUT it worked!

Today is Day 5! 19 more days… 19 more days! I woke up this morning and it was the 1st time in a really long time that I haven’t felt bloated. I put my jeans on (that have been tight) and they fit good. I am not surprised by any of this, I knew what I needed to do to lose the weight but I just haven’t been doing it. Something has been kicked started back deep inside me and I feel my dedication turning back on.  And, I love it.

This Advocare Challenge is great, however if you aren’t ready to put in the hard work, to give up the “good” foods, to really focus and lose weight… it won’t work for you. Everybody can sit there and say they want to lose weight but until the fire is turned on deep inside (a fire ONLY you can turn on), then nothing you try will work. That is why there are so many yo yo diets… there is NO quick fix to lose the weight. You didn’t put it on overnight and it’s not going to come off overnight.

I have a passion in my heart to help people succeed in their weight loss journey. I will dedicate my spare time to you, give you tools you need, encourage you, give you workout routines, etc…. if you are ready to dig down deep, find the fire within, turn it on and lose weight, let me know! I would love to help you out. If it’s working out, learning how to eat right, starting the Advocare 24 Day Challenge (which I sale!), I am here for you!!

If I can do this… so can you! You just have to have the WANT to do it.
