11 Things I’ve Personally Learned from the Advocare 24-Day Challenge

As my 24-Day Challenge draws to the end, I thought it would be important to give a short list of what I’ve learned through clean eating and exercising. This week has been really great for me because I’ve hit the goals I’ve set for myself. I believe you can too, whatever your goals may be.

  1. It is your decision and yours alone to set goals and commit to healthy eating & exercising

  2. Create a routine and follow it

  3. Have something to look forward to…set goals & reach them!

  4. Drink water, water, & MORE water

  5. Don’t compare yourself to others

  6. Control your portions to be successful

  7. Food is not a reward

  8. Prepping meals does wonders

  9. Cooking is exciting & satisfying

  10. Rid your kitchen of bad foods

  11. Most importantly…have fun with it!

If you would like some more tips then I suggest checking out EatingWell and USA Today. Taking my own advice, I had a little fun the other day by experimenting with random items in my kitchen. I mixed peppers, broccoli, onions, garlic, herb seasoning, potatoes, turkey bacon, chicken, teriyaki sauce, and coconut oil. I ate an appropriate portion of this of course. I wasn’t sure how it would taste but it worked out very well.

Have you ever experimented in your kitchen? Let me know in the comments.

Thank you for reading and I’m looking forward to sharing my results along with Sara’s and Aaron’s next time. Feel free to reach out to me at nicololihealth@gmail.com or connect with me on Twitter and/or Instagram.

    I love hearing about your personal journey during this process! I enjoyed how you made a delicious looking meal, mentioned how important eating the appropriate portions multiple times, and was honest with “I wasn’t sure how this would taste”. Its very personable!
