Well HELLO everyone!! I've been gone for a while again, but doing good things for me and my family. School got out in May and I ended the year with a promotion and a new business venture under my belt, and because of the second a belt that is a little smaller and getting smaller as the days go by!! I'll tell you all about it!!
But a little about what else has been up. The kids are growing by leaps and bounds, Ashie Jo will be in the forth grade next fall and Brandon will be in 8th grade!! Makes me sad that they grow so fast. Time slips away and they change everyday. They are awesome kids and get along like best friends and I am so blessed for that.
I'll be in my forth year at the Middle School come Fall and will now be the Head Cook, moving up from Cooks assistant. It's kind of scary but the gal that was the Head Cook is now the Kitchen Mgr, moving up with the retirement of the Kitchen Mgr that was there for the last 23 years!! So I'll have lots of help still and we will learn new things together but also it's the same thing just in a new position!!
And the reason for my waste line getting smaller is also my new business venture. One of my very best friends since college, Sandy Moss, introduced me to AdvoCare in April. She had been talking about "SPARK" on Facebook almost daily, saying how great it made her feel and that it was the next best thing next to sliced bread. She talked about the 24 Day Challenge and how it helped her lose weight and inches and that she felt better than she had in years!!! I was curious but somewhat skeptical of the product. But I have been wanting to lose some weight for some time but just couldn't get it together enough to do it. She messaged me on night and ask if I wanted to try AdvoCare? Yes, I did but didn't know if I could afford it as I don't make a lot of money at my job, basically just buying food and that's it. Well she made sure I could try it and got me stated. I wanted to wait until school got out, May but this was April and she said .. "no you start as soon as you get the 24 Day Challenge Bundle". Since I usually do as I'm told I did. I got the box in the mail and started the very next day!! I was leery of starting while working, we don't get but one break and are going from the time we get there until we leave!! And since there is a cleanse involved was afraid that I'd be in the bathroom and not working!! But Sandy assured me it would be okay!! So I began on April 25 and in 24 days it really did change my life!! I lost 20 lbs and 16 1/2" of unwanted fat!!! And I feel better now than I have in years also. The Spark drink really is amazing and I recommend it to EVERYONE I tell about it. It is an energy drink that if only 45 calories and not a lot of caffeine but loaded with tons of vitamins that are good for you. You really can tell the difference once you drink one you will be hooked,,, in a good way. Even my Trucker Man loves then and has lost over 15 lbs himself and is notching his belt a little tighter these days too. I became a Distributor within 2 weeks of trying AdvoCare and have made it to Advisor level. There is opportunity to make money with AdvoCare along with feeling so great you can also make some money selling it to your friends and family. The best part is that the company doesn't require you to sell a thing, so if you become a Distributor you automatically start saving 20% on all the products for yourself. This product sells itself really. Once you tell people how great you feel and they actually see it with their own eyes how great you look and feel they want to know what you are doing. I Spark them... give them a packet of Spark and it usually turns into them wanting to try the other products. These are supplements you should be taking for your overall health anyway. If you need it AdvoCare has it if you don't need it they don't carry it. They have a trim line, a wellness line and a line for Performance Elite for the body builders out there.. If you are interested than click on the link above and check out the company. They are a fly by night company, they have been around for over 20 years and have lots of information for you on the site. Or message me and I'll help you with anything you might want to know. It's been amazing for me and my kids sure do like the new better me!! Ladies if you have hormonal headaches, I DID... but honestly I haven't had ONE headache since I began and I was a 6 pill a day girl before. I can't tell you it will get rid of yours but I has been well worth it for me and it sure couldn't hurt to try. As you can tell I'm sold on the product and will use it from now on. I'm still losing weight even after the Challenge and I am currently down 30 lbs since April 25th!! I'll do another cleanse in Aug and keep my inside feeling as great as my outside!!
One of my besties Tanya, of Bead & Needle is also on the product and she is doing amazing!! I just go to see her this week, she was in Denver visiting her parents and we got to take my kids to the zoo for the day. It was a great day and I love her so much and am so happy she is feeling as good as I am and looking even better!! If you want to check out my AdvoCare micro site, I encourage you to do so. Lots of good information there. Please use my name to get to my page under the "find a distributor" link JOLEEN LOCKE or my Distributor #130455450. Get some Spark!! You won't be sorry!!!
