The gauntlet has been thrown, my friends.
Today, Cory and Emily start their 24 Day Advocare Challenges, and they’ve done what they do best: they’ve made it into a competition.
And, I’m doing what I do best: refereeing their competition.
Cory is fresh off winning a diet bet held at his office, and he’s feeling good-ish; coming off Thanksgiving isn’t easy for anyone [in this house, at least.] But, he’s a guy and can simply think about losing weight and it happens. [HOW IS THAT FAIR?!]
Emily is an Advocare Rockstar. Actually, today is her one year Advocare anniversary. It’s probably weird how proud I am of her, but I really don’t care. In a year, she’s lost 30 pounds, 3 sizes, over 35 inches and looks absolutely amazing. She wasn’t looking for a quick fix, she was looking for a lifestyle change, and she found it. She’s worked so hard and I’m just so happy for her. I mean, look at that transformation!! #proudBFF
And then, there’s me.
The only part of this trio who’s gaining weight. Someone told Cory when he started his office diet bet that he shouldn’t try to lose weight while I’m pregnant, which I thought was a bit much.
I mean, I get it. Normally, it’s not easy to get bigger while watching your partner get smaller. But oddly enough, I feel great about my body, even as it gets bigger [and bigger…and bigger…] So, if my loved ones want to feel great about their bodies, I’m all for it!
Good luck to two of my favorite people! Now, can someone pass me the OJ and french fries?
