Need a Little Afternoon Spark? Try Sparks by Advocare! #Review + #Giveaway


It happens to all of us... if we had a great night's sleep the night before, we start off our day full of energy. My day starts sometime between 5:30 and 6:00 am, I am awake early, and prefer the morning to the late afternoon and evening. I get myself up, and try to get a couple of hours of uninterrupted work in each morning, while my husband and son are still sleeping. Since I'm up working early, and then mix work with the daily routine, I sometimes find myself falling over, exhausted between 3 - 5 pm. I usually have a sort lived second wind between 6 - 8:30 pm, but as 9 pm draws near, I am too tired for more work, entrainment, and sometimes even too tired for conversation!

Presented by Erin Brown, Independent Distributor

Lucky for me, my energy level was about to get a big boost. A few weeks ago, I reconnected with an old friend to MBP, and former MBP Jr. Contributor, Erin Brown. Erin had honestly shared her own experience with the exhaustion of being a new mom with me, and was excited to introduce me to AdvoCare, a company which offers health and wellness products, and had helped Erin get back on track.

Advocare is a direct sales company, whose products are shared by independent distributors. world-class energy, weight-loss, nutrition, and sports performance products along with a rewarding business opportunity. Advocare is endorsed by some pretty well known names, such as Jason Witten, Dallas Tight End! Advocare was founded in 1993, by Charlie Ragus, who chose the name AdvoCare, because he believed in being avdocates who care. Advocare was founded on Christian, family-friendly principals, and promotes loyalty, and integrity, building self-esteem and self worth in all people, and promotes quality products that change lives.

Erin shared with me that the Advocare products were helping her to feel better about herself. She had more overall energy, was losing weight, and was making money, thanks to the Advocare business opportunity! Erin is so passionate about Advocare, that she wanted me to try some of their products for myself, so that I could see how wonderful they really are!

Erin sent me a fabulous sampler of AdvoCare Spark® Energy, in yummy flavors!

I sort of didn't know what to expect from the AdvoCare Spark® Energy mixes. I was happy to see that the mixes were individually packaged, and that there were a variety of flavors to try. It's always better to try a few different ones when you're trying something new. Lucky for me, Erin sent me great flavors, like lemonade, fruit punch, mango strawberry, watermelon, and a Mocha Coffeccino mix, as well! I love fruit juice, and seriously love pink lemonade, and coffee, so I knew these were going to be great flavors for me!

So, what are the AdvoCare Spark® Energy mixes, anyway?
Spark Energy mixes are a Vitamin & Amino Acid Supplement

KEY BENEFITS:

Enhances mental energy and focus*
Provides support for long-lasting energy*
Helps fight occasional drowsiness*
21 vitamins, minerals and nutrients
Sugar-free and only 45 calories

Who is it for?

Someone who has trouble waking up or feels "energy slumps" throughout the day.
Someone who can't work up enough energy to live life the way you want.

I was sold on trying these from Erin's personal testimony, and after reading more about the Sparks on the Advocare website. I definitely feel sluggish during the afternoon, and let's just say that I am noticing that my metabolism isn't as fast as it used to be, either! I was ready to give one of the Spark mixes a try, and went for the Pink Lemonade mix on a particularly warm spring afternoon.

I poured the mix into a glass, and mixed with cold water. 

The Pink Lemonade Spark mix looked and smelled sweet and yummy! I love lemonade anytime, so this was a great afternoon pick-me-up, and much better for me than turning to my coffee pot. I am always wary of energy drink mixes. I don't always react well to them, and I have to admit- I was afraid of what the side effects from the Sparks might be. Erin let me know right off that they never made her feel shaky or jittery... I knew that since she's also a mom, she wouldn't take anything herself that could impact her ability to function normally and care for her child. I felt like I was in good hands, and I was right!

Bottoms up- the Pink Lemonade was absolutely refreshing!

 I loved the taste of the Pink Lemonade, and the other fruity flavors of the Spark mixes. I expected them to taste sort of chalky, but they didn't. They were smoothly mixed, and each one wound up being a refreshing, tasty treat!


Here are some of the other flavors I tried- Mango Strawberry being my second favorite! They were all so delicious!

How Did I Feel?

Truthfully, after about an hour after drinking the Pink Lemonade Spark mix, I did start to notice that I just sort of felt brighter. My mood had improved considerably, and even my husband noticed that I seemed much more chipper when he got home from work. I felt refreshed, like I had a new wave of energy, which helped me to concentrate on the things I needed to get done. I expected to feel like I was hit with a sudden wave of energy, and to feel extremely jittery, or like my head was swimming, but that never happened. It was a gradual overall feeling of just feeling better.

Coffeccino Mix- Mocha flavor. Mocha is my favorite!

Along with the Spark mixes, I also received a sample of the AdvoCare Coffeccino® mix. I love coffee, so I knew this afternoon or morning delight would be quite the little treat for me!

The Coffeccino is a vitamin & nutrient supplement, and is right for anyone who:

 has trouble waking up or feels "energy slumps" throughout the day
wants to support your weight-management program
wants assistance with appetite control

Here's the inside of the pouch, containing the drink mix- just in case you're wondering what it looks like.

The mocha Coffeccino can be enjoyed several different ways: as a hot beverage, blended with or served over ice, or as a cold drink with no ice. I was tempted to to blend it with ice, because that just sounded so, so good. However, I really wanted a little pick-me-up, and making it into a hot drink was going to be faster, and easier.

I poured six ounces of water into a mug, and stirred in the Coffeccino mix from AdvoCare.

Within about a minute, my drink was ready. It smelled absolutely delicious! My favorite coffee shop definitely has some new competition! I casually sipped on the yummy Coffeccino drink for about fifteen minutes. I felt like I was drinking a high dollar cup of coffee, with added benefits! Let's face it- coffee is sor of not that great for you, and I drink way too much of it. It does give me a burst of energy in the morning, but makes me feel like crashing later in the day. 

The Coffeccino is amazing. Not only did it taste great and give me lasting energy, it curbed my appetite, and kept me from snacking during the day. I ate healthy meals, and feel like I am off to a great start of getting back on track for my goal weight for this summer.

Forget the coffee... Coffeccino by AdvoCare is the smarter choice!

I am so glad that Erin introduced me to AdvoCare. I had only just heard of it in the past, and wasn't really sure what it was all about. I love the products I tried, and think that they're great for anyone who wants to feel great- mentally, and/or physically.

Ready to jumpstart your weightloss plan and feel better about yourself? When I drank the Spark energy mixes for one week, I noticed that I was less hungry throughout the day, and my clothes fit better.

She'll help tailor a plan and product bundle just for you, and offer the support and encouragement you need to stay on track!
