Me and a giant Spark at AdvoCare’s 2015 Success School in Arlington, TX this past Saturday. Didn’t see the Pink Lemonade one or I’d have swiped that bad boy! #lovespark #advocare #healthylife #fitover40 #fitlife #tastyvitamins #blog

So Alyx, bless her, gets an attack of the sweet tooth now and then and today was a great day because I was also hit with a a sweet tooth attack! These little gems were made by combining melted chocolate chips, almond butter, finely shredded (no sugar added) coconut and chocolate Muscle Gain protein powder. Mix, scoop, refrigerate. Done. #advocare #24daychallenge #fitlife #fitover40 #fitmom #healthylife #cleaneating #grainfree #cleansnack #snacks #blog

And Day 7 of our most recent AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge is done! We started the day with some weight lifting, then a 15-ish minute workout and followed it up with a custom shake that Matt mixed up with Muscle Gain, Post Workout Recovery, Fiber Drink, mixed berries, coconut milk and ice. Split amongst the four of us (varying for size) and we were covered for breakfast. Then Matt and I were off to work on a gym install for a couple of hours. Back home for lunch we had soft tacos in corn tortillas with ground meat he made a couple of days ago and lettuce, guacamole and salsa. All around this is super simple food with no added sugars, flavoring, preservatives or extra scary stuff. The goal with dinner was to use the Brussels Sprouts and otherwise empty out the fridge. That there are left overs for Matt to take to lunch tomorrow is a big bonus. Dinner ended up having the Brussels Sprouts, chicken breast, rotisserie chicken and carrots all dumped in together with garlic pepper and some other seasoning blends. It was tasty and simple and uses up those last bits here and there rather than throw them away. Eating clean does not have to be expensive! The Challenge systematizes and takes the confusion out of eating. Here’s the other thing that doing a 24 Day Challenge does for you…it keeps you on track for 24 Days! This weekend we were on the road and out of our routine. We would have LOVED to have done our normal and said road food doesn’t count but we are on a Challenge. Good stuff! #blog #grainfree #paleo #positivechanges #cleaneating #healthylife #fitmom #fitover40 #fitlife #24daychallenge #advocare

Winnah…winnah…chicken dinnah! Day 6 of our AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge finished with Alyx’s spicy baked chicken, carrots with butter, garlic and pepper and a simple salad of mixed greens, tomatoes and guacamole. I know folks misunderstand paleo as low carb but we eat more carbs on a challenge than off. (Hint: fruits and veggies are carbs) Herbal detox tablets at bedtime and done. #24daychallenge #advocare #munsonfamily #fitlife #fitover40 #fitmom #healthylife #cleaneating #positivechanges #paleo #glutenfree #grainfree #blog

We’re in AT&T Stadium at AdvoCare’s 2015 Success School. There are over 20,000 people here. It’s a lot of people but it is only a fraction of the number of people signed up in AdvoCare. One of the best features of AdvoCare, in my opinion, is that there are multiple ways to be involved. The vast majority of people who sign up in AdvoCare sign up simply for a discount on the products they use. Who wouldn’t? There are other direct sales companies that have products I like, that I would like more at a discount but they don’t offer a non-business building option. I don’t have interest in buying a minimum amount of products every month. None. So this weekend, in the world of AdvoCare, is about helping the ones who are interested in creating a secondary income and doing something bigger than simply get great products at a discount. Neither way is more right than the other but these options are one of the many reasons we love being involved with this business in particular. #positivity #fitmom #blog #fitover40 #advocare #bettereveryday #munsonfamily #positivelife

Lunch on Day 6 is interesting. There wasn’t a ‘perfect’ opportunity for the fiber drink this morning so we bumped it out to the lunch time shake option. No matter what, we got it all done. #healthylife #advocare #fitover40 #blog #fitmom #cleaneating #24daychallenge

Starting Day 6 of my 24 Day Challenge at a hotel. Probiotics still first thing for that gut health. Not the tastiest breakfast but clean and fast. The carb/sugary options are amazing at hotel included breakfast bars. Cereals, muffins, high sugar yogurts, bagels and toast…just add any of these for an insulin spike and immediate stop to body fat burning. #24daychallenge #bettereveryday #cleaneating #fitmom #blog #fitover40 #advocare #roadfood #healthylife

Food on the road staying solid on the AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge…BBQ with sauces on the side. Most definitely awesome! The Dallas/Ft. Worth area has In & Out Burgers which do a protein style bunless burger. Done. #glutenfree #bettereveryday #cleaneating #munsonfamily #24daychallenge #advocare #blog #fitmom #fitover40 #healthylife #roadfood

Today, Day 5 of our AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge, has been…odd. The girls and I built a smoothie based on AdvoCare’s Muscle Gain Vanilla Protein. It is low carb (2-3g carb & 12g protein per scoop) which gave us more wiggle room on added fruit since we felt like a banana berry smoothie sounded good. We did three scoops of protein, 1 small banana, 1.25 C frozen mixed berries, 1/2 C coconut milk and ice. It was delish and hit the spot. I made refrigerator pickles last weekend so I had one of those, later a handful of grapes and then there were gluten free lemon scones. Mia made them and I did my parental job and had one. Coconut and tapioca flours made for some really fluffy treats that will definitely be made again! It ain’t rocket surgery! #fitfamily #fitmom #healthylife #blog #advocare #24daychallenge #munsonfamily #cleaneating #cleaneating #bettereveryday #glutenfree #smoothie
