Happy New Year!

January 4, 2010
Happy New Year!
 
I want to tell you how proud I am of each and every one of you as you’ve utilized AdvoCare to help you reach your goals in 2009.  Whether you have been earning money, losing weight, or getting in better shape; AdvoCare is a vehicle to help you achieve.
 
I’d like to invite you to personally join me in a brand new weight loss goal for 2010.  If you would like to work with me hand in hand for 60 days in 2010 and lose up to 30 pounds, read on.
 
We will stay in constant contact via email, phone, and instant messenger.  I’ll be here to offer you all the support you need.  If you would like to participate, just reply to this email and we will get started right away.  You will have to make a commitment to utilize some AdvoCare products and do a little bit of exercise.  Nothing rigorous.  Personally, I am joining my local gym, but only because we’ve had so much darn rain in South Carolina that I’m not getting outside enough to ride horses, go yard work, or walk.
 
We will be using some core AdvoCare products, drinking lots of water, Sparking up daily, and checking in.
 
If you participate, and you make your goals, you will receive $50 in AdvoCare goodies from me at the end of the 60 days.  You can choose to lose as little or as much weight as you like.  The challenge is yours.  I hope you will all participate with me.
 
I am going for the full 30 pounds.  And I’ll share with you that I have THREE road trips during this time – one being AdvoCare’s Success School January 22 through 24 in Forth Worth, TX.  Can you picture yourself there with me?  There is still plenty of time to register if you are already an AdvoCare distributor.  If you aren’t, then you might want to make the investment in yourself to immediately receive your 20% discount on your products.  If you would like to let AdvoCare be your vehicle for some extra income in 2010, I’ll work with you hand in hand there as well.
 
If you have friends or family who would like to participate in our challenge, that would be fantastic.  Just have them send me an email and I’ll get everyone started.  The actual challenge will run from January 5 through March 5, so we have time to get our product in hand.
 
To your success!  If you have any questions don’t hesitate to email me or catch me on my cell at 803-389-0972.  Upon receipt of your reply, I will help you plan your first order for the challenge.

Water for Fitness and Vitality

November 23, 2009

Water For Fitness And Vitality

The right nutrition is the cornerstone of health and
fitness and water plays a major role in your fitness
nutrition plan.

Water plays a vital role in all aspects of the metabolic
process. So much so, that without it you would survive for
only a few days.

As you probably know already, the body is made up of more
than 60% water and this level must be maintained for
optimal health.

It can be difficult to do because we are losing water
continually via urination, respiration and by sweating. To
avoid dehydration, water reserves must be constantly topped
up by drinking at least 8 cups of water each day.

But when you exercise you need to drink even more because
of the additional sweating. The amount lost depends on the
type of exercise, your bodyweight and the surrounding
temperature but you can easily lose 2 pints or more for
each hour of exercise and this must be replaced.

The Signs of Dehydration

There are a number of signs for dehydration and you should
watch out for these. Dark colored urine, with a strong
odor, is one of the easiest signs to spot.

But there are many other warning signs like a dry throat
and mouth, dry cough, dizziness, exhaustion and even loss
of appetite. The signs of severe dehydration are even more
dramatic and include pain when urinating, muscle cramps and
spasms, headaches, nausea and even delirium.

The Best Time To Drink

Drinking the right amount of water at regular intervals
throughout the day will keep the body hydrated and
functioning properly. In preparation for exercise, it is
advisable to drink 2 cups of water about two hours before
your session.

Then immediately before you exercise, drink a cup of water
and during each hour of your session sip between 2 to 3
cups.

After the session you also need to drink more water to
replace the fluid lost through sweat.

To really make sure you’re on target, weigh yourself before
exercise and again when you have finished. Work out how
many pounds you have lost and you will need to drink one
pint of water for each pound.

Are Special Energy Drinks Not Better Than Water When I Am
Exercising?

Sports drinks and energy drinks contain a mix of
carbohydrates and electrolytes (minerals) dissolved in
water.

They tend to have fruity flavors and are pleasant to drink.
When you exercise for longer periods (more than an hour)
then sports drinks can be beneficial because the
carbohydrate in them provides the body with readily
available energy to boost performance.

But for short exercise sessions there is no real benefit
over plain water, despite the manufacturers’ claims to the
contrary.

If you are serious about your training and fitness, it is
worth considering retaining a personal nutritionist or
subscribing to a scientifically developed program like
plan:one to make sure that your fluid intake is sufficient
and that your fitness nutrition plan is tailored to suit
your personal requirements exactly.

Swine Flu Vaccine Linked to Deadly Nerve Disease

September 1, 2009

A warning that the swine flu vaccine has been linked to a deadly nerve disease has been sent by the UK Government to senior neurologists in a confidential letter.

The letter from the Health Protection Agency, the official body that oversees public health, was leaked to The Daily Mail, leading to demands to know why the information has not been given to the public before the vaccination of millions of people, including children, begins.

It tells the neurologists that they must be alert for an increase in a brain disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which could be triggered by the vaccine. GBS attacks the lining of the nerves, causing paralysis and inability to breathe, and can be fatal.

The letter refers to the use of a similar swine flu vaccine in the United States in 1976 when:

  • More people died from the vaccination than from swine flu
  • The vaccine may have increased the risk of contracting GBS by eight times
  • The vaccine was withdrawn after just ten weeks when the link with GBS became clear
  • The U.S. Government was forced to pay out millions of dollars to those affected

Concerns have already been raised that the new vaccine has not been sufficiently tested and that the effects, especially on children, are unknown.

Lost 12.5 Pounds This Week

July 10, 2009

Okay, I’m totally psyched!  I’ve gone from lightly promoting AdvoCare to basically just people that notice the weight loss and ask what I’m doing to preaching the AdvoCare and hCG combination from the mountaintops.  But as you can well imagine, with 12.5 pounds lost in ONE WEEK, people are asking what I’m doing.

Best of all, at this rate I will be below 200 lbs. next week and I haven’t been less than 200 lbs. in over 17 years!!!!

How I Added One product to my AdvoCare Regime and Doubled My Weight Loss Speed

July 8, 2009

How I added one product to my AdvoCare regimen and doubled my weight loss speed.
Sometimes the best things in life are the easiest. Not free, in my case, but easy. You know me. You know that I’ve been using AdvoCare products for the last three years and have lost over 70 pounds.

Well let me tell you what I’ve done.

In addition to my regular AdvoCare products:
MNS Max 3
Slim
Thermoplus
MNS Meal Replacement Shakes
and twice a year Herbal Cleanse

I’ve added one non-AdvoCare product. hCG (Human Corionic Gonadotropin). Taken under the tongue, these nearly flavorless drops help to flush bad fat out of the system and protect organs by maintaining good fat around them. I can’t begin to tell you what has happened in just TWO DAYS.

I dropped 7 pounds. And I’m not subscribing to the 500 calorie diet that most hCG diet mongers tell you to do eating nothing but chicken and lettuce and onions for weeks and weeks on end with an apple thrown in every day for “variety”. No way.

I still put creamer in my coffee. I have my meal replacement shakes. I had fried rice from Chinese take out last night. I snuck yogurt into my shake this morning. The weight just keeps coming off.

Before adding hCG I had plateaued at about 213. Wavered from 213 to 217 and back and forth. But couldn’t get any lower. I was trying everything I knew to do.

Then I added hCG and within 48 hours I was at 210. I haven’t weighed 210 since I was pregnant with my now 16 year old and that was fairly early on in my pregnancy.

I am so happy I could just dance. Please don’t hesitate to contact me for information on how you can pull this off, too. shannanh@comporium.net

Easy Health and Beauty Shopping

April 1, 2009

I spend a LOT of time online.  And I do a lot of my shopping online.  It saves time and money.  The better I’ve become at bargain shopping, the more excited I get about shopping online. 

One of my newest favorite shipping sites is Wiki or Shop Wiki.  There wide selection of health and beauty products makes online shopping a breeze and saves me a trip to my local big box store.  One of the coolest things about the Shop Wiki site is that its more than just a link to items I need to buy.  There is a cosmetics guide to help me select brands and colors that suit me best.  I’ve learned more on there in a short period of time than any Mary Kay or Beauticontrol party I’ve ever attended.

The other really cool tool on the Shop Wiki site is the hair care guide.  Once I started going to discount hair salons like Great Clips, etc. I lost my great one on one relationship with a stylist who really understood my thick wavy hair.  The Shop Wiki hair care guide has helped me discover new ways to condition and style without drying out the tangled mess I already have to work with.    Let’s face it.  Most of us still need all the help we can get.
