Before I started the Advocare 24 Day Challenge, I was given a couple packages of the Spark energy drink to sample. It’s a powder that you mix with water. I made it around noon that day and drank it right down. Yummy – watermelon! It had a very pleasant taste, was easy to mix, and I suddenly had a huge burst of energy that sustained for the rest of the afternoon and into the evening. I call this burst of energy – “Waaaaaa!” In fact, it was 1:00 a.m. before I was able to fall asleep that evening which wasn’t so great the next morning having less sleep.
I am sensitive to caffeine, and I don’t drink coffee or caffeinated drinks except on rare occasions for this very reason. Soooo, I told my thin friend who gave me the samples about my concern of not being able to go to sleep that night. She told me she sipped her Spark through the morning. I thought I would give that a try. I am sure the guzzler habit I have developed for eating and drinking has been one of the contributing factors for my weight problem.) That did the trick for me! I make it first thing in the morning in my water bottle, and I sip on it before I eat breakfast, on the way to the gym, during the workout, and am done sipping it before noon. I am also drinking glasses of water between sips of Spark.
I love the Spark! I truly think this has helped my body go through the shock of exercising and have the energy and endurance I needed. When you are lugging an extra 100lbs around much less trying to step, do lunges, and all that other crazy stuff they make you do in the exercise classes, I can do it. Not only does it give you exercise, but I feel more focused. I think my self-diagnosed ADD has greatly improved while drinking Spark. I can finish a task before I am distracted to do another one, and I can work faster and more efficiently.
In the Advocare 24 Day Challenge kit, I got the citrus and fruit punch flavors. I like both of them and have been alternating them each day. I know that after the 24 Day Challenge, I will still be using the Spark. It’s that good!
