holiday hustle.


it’s time to get your butt into gear and hit it hard before the holidays hit you! we all tend to overindulge during the holidays and run low on time for exercise, so you definitely want to head into the holidays with optimal health.  furthermore, you want to develop healthy habits and have a strong base going into the new year so you aren’t making new year’s resolutions to work out or eat clean (like the majority of folks do!)



when you sign up for the challenge, you receive 24 days worth of advocare products along with a nutrition guide and challenge planner/checklist. the products include the 10-day herbal cleanse complete with probiotics, herbal cleanse tablets, and the fiber drink, 14 meal replacement pouches, two boxes of spark energy drink, 56 MNS pill packs for the max phase, and a bottle of omegaplex to last the entire challenge. basically, it’s a lot of product. at a cost of less than $8 a day, it’s a screaming deal and a sound investment for your health and happiness.

the challenge has two phases: the cleanse phase and the max phase. the good news is you get to EAT the entire time! i never do well with cleanses where you can’t eat.. so this one is perfect for me. in the first 10 days i personally lost five pounds and 13 overall inches. the cleanse consists of a fiber drink, probiotics, herbal cleanse tablets, omegaplex, and spark energy drink. the max phase is days 11-24 and it is what i am currently doing. the phase consists of a meal replacement drink in the morning, spark energy drink, MNS pill packs , and omegaplex.

there are also companion products that are available to take while doing the challenge. i personally have opted to take three of the companion products: thermoplus, catalyst, and carb-ease.  the catalyst is taken for the full 24 days and the other two are taken during the max phase only. the products aren’t required for the challenge, but many people do use them in conjunction with the challenge. i have found the companion products to work well for me!

i want to let you all know that advocare products are informed choice approved, which means they have gone through rigorous testing to make sure they are all SAFE for you to use. this is an edge advocare has on most other supplement companies out there. you can take these supplements with peace of mind and know you aren’t harming yourself. click here to read more.

i mentioned the challenge comes with a nutrition guide. it does not dictate your meals for you exactly, but it gives you guidelines of what to eat, when to eat, and.. most importantly.. what not to eat! it is very simple to follow and leaves room for customization if you have dietary restrictions or social events that force you to eat out. it seriously is the most flexible challenge i’ve ever done, and i am seeing so much success!  you can see my first day of the challenge here to see the type of things i was eating (although i didn’t include snacks in that post.) i will also be sharing more of my meals and snacks in the future!

so, that’s the stuff you receive from advocare when signing up for the challenge.. but i am making the holiday hustle extra special, so you will receive even MORE if you sign up!

  • email support throughout the full 24 days—have a question? concern? problem? i am here to help!
  • periodic emailed newsletters and videos throughout the challenge guiding you through everything.
  • exclusive healthy recipes to fuel you through the challenge as well as meal plan ideas and tips.
  • workouts for in the gym and at home along with demos, ideas, and tips.
  • supplementation information including benefits and how to implement certain supplements to reach your goals.
  • fun food and fitness-related challenges for all participants with over $250 in prizes up for grabs.
  • strong sense of community and full access to a private facebook group so you can interact with others during AND after the challenge.

now, no challenge would be complete without INCENTIVE, right? i know we all have a little competitive edge in us. sometimes that’s what it takes to keep me accountable and on point. so here is how the incentive of the holiday hustle will work…


all participants will send in their day one photos to me on monday, october 7th. challengers will also weigh and/or measure and write that down for day one (optional but encouraged.) after day 24, challengers will take photos and also weigh and/or measure again. all participants will send in final photos and any changes in weight and inches to me along with any notes about how the challenge affected you. i will use this information to select three winners.

we call ALL use extra cash for the holidays, so i decided to take money out of my pocket and give it to you! plus a few fun prizes to make the awards extra special!


$200 cash, living proof fit gear tank top, a blender bottle, and box of spark energy drink ($315 total value)


$150 cash, living proof fit gear tank top, and box of spark energy drink ($200 total value)


$100 cash and box of spark energy drink ($125 total value)



like i said above, in addition to the awards i just described, there is more chance to win stuff just by participating. throughout the 24 days, i will be holding various fitness and food challenges with prizes, random gift card drawings, and other fun incentives for all participants to have a chance to win.

ready to sign up?? CLICK HERE to get the challenge! once you have ordered the products, send me an email to—> mealsandmoves @ with HOLIDAY HUSTLE in the subject line. let me know you are IN for the holiday hustle! i will immediately put you on the email list to receive all the inside info for the challenge and to be added to the facebook group. once on the list, you will begin receiving emails from me regarding the timeline of the challenge, details about the drawings, mini-challenges, healthy recipes, workout ideas, tips, and other important participant info.

hashtag = #holidayhustle

if you have QUESTIONS about the holiday hustle, the 24 day challenge products, the 24 day challenge itself, or the companion products.. please shoot me an email and i would be happy to answer anything before you sign up!

this is for USA ONLY. unfortunately, advocare does not ship outside of the USA. if you have a USA address, you can join! the products do take anywhere from 3-6 days to arrive (advocare is based in texas so it depends where you live) so plan accordingly and place your order enough in advance to receive your products prior to the challenge start date—october 7!

SIDE NOTE.. if you have any interest in becoming an advocare distributor like me, SHOOT ME A NOTE before signing up! there is a fee to become a distributor and i realize this is not for everyone, but if it interests you.. it’s DEFINITELY worth taking a look into! the company is awesome and it’s a great opportunity. distributors receive 20% off the product initially (and can work up to a 40% product discount.)  if you decide to become a distributor rather than simply ordering the challenge straight up, you are STILL eligible to participate in the holiday hustle and receive all the benefits and will be entered to win all the prizes!

okay, i think that covers all the bases! i can’t WAIT to see you all have success with the HOLIDAY HUSTLE and head into the holidays hot & healthy this year! let’s do this!

Sara @ fitcupcaker September 17, 2013 at 6:16 pm

I would like to try this, but how do the advocare products taste? What if I sign up and then hate the flavor of the meal replacement or fiber drink or something :(


Trisha September 17, 2013 at 9:22 pm

Hi Sara,

They’re honestly not that bad. The fiber drink is probably the worst. My suggestion would be to add a little bit of orange juice or orange Vitamin Water and down it as quickly as possible. It gets thicker, and incredibly nasty, the longer it sits. The mocha Meal Replacement Shake is AWESOME! I ended up ordering an extra box a few days into my challenge so I could have it every day for breakfast.
Spark tastes a lot like Emergen-C.
Hope that helps!


Janetha September 18, 2013 at 8:18 am

Thanks for chiming in, lady! xo


Janetha September 18, 2013 at 6:21 am

Hey! I can assure you the meal replacement is delicious. The fiber drink doesn’t taste bad, the texture is a little weird, but not intolerable. You can mix it with the spark and it’s actually pleasant to drink! Promise, taste isn’t an issue. I’m the same way.


Maria September 17, 2013 at 8:06 pm

I would like to try this challenge as well. However how do you stick to the plan if you are out at a restaurant? How strict is the plan?


Janetha September 18, 2013 at 8:24 am

Hey, Maria! It is a very flexible plan. I have eaten out many times on the challenge so far. It’s very adjustable to real life situations!


Suz September 17, 2013 at 8:50 pm

Hi! Interested in the challenge. Question, do you know if any of the products have added iron? I can’t have it unfortunately. Thanks!


Janetha September 18, 2013 at 8:23 am

Here is a link to the full ingredient list of the MNS packs. I don’t see added iron, but you will want to look it over to make sure it has nothing you can’t have.


ColeyD September 18, 2013 at 8:22 am

Hey Miss Janetha!! I am in desperate need of a swift kick so that I can get my butt back in shape!!! I am really excited about your next challenge…. did you do a free day on this? You mentioned that it was easy to follow and stick with… how about eating out and adult beverages? Just wondering? Thanks a bunch!!


Janetha September 18, 2013 at 8:40 am

It is only 24 days.. so, no.. no free DAY! But I have had a free meal each week. I haven’t had any booze for other reasons (Sober September for me.. long story) and I figure 3 weekends is not that bad to give up drinking, especially since the holidays will bring lots of food and booze! It’s really an easy plan to follow, though! xoxo


ColeyD September 23, 2013 at 8:42 am

Thanks for the response! And, you are right! It’s only 24 days! I am excited and ordering today! Thanks for always finding new things and inspiring us to be healthier! I am looking forward to this challenge!!


Janetha September 23, 2013 at 9:20 am

Awesome! We have a lot of locals doing the challenge.. FUN!


ali moll September 18, 2013 at 11:24 am

Sounds like a fabulous challenge Janetha! It’s not in my budget right now, but I am definitely “in” for the next round! Sounds like you are loving it! So happy for you! Have a great day!



Jessy Carlisle September 18, 2013 at 11:53 am

Hey! I’m not looking to lose tons of weight or anything crazy because I am pregnant right now. I looked up some stuff online about Advocare and Pregnancy, and it seems like it is deemed safe. I will of course ask my doctor, but I was wondering if you knew anymore info about that? I would just like to cleanse my system and kind of feel healthier. I’ve been eating healthy and working out, but I would love to add some supplements like these and help out my SLOW digestive track :)


Janetha September 18, 2013 at 1:31 pm

It definitely helps with the slow digestion thing. If that is your issue, I would go with the MNS 3 pack over the C or the E. I don’t have firsthand information about the challenge and pregnancy, but I, like you, have read only positive things. I would definitely chat with your doc and go from there! I am always inspired by pregnant women who are looking out for their health!


Amanda September 19, 2013 at 10:35 am

I really want to try this. I need something to get me back in weight loss mode. I will have to think about it. .


Janetha September 19, 2013 at 11:34 am

Let me know if you have any questions!


Amanda September 19, 2013 at 10:45 pm

Ok, I wanted to ask you about some of the products. How do they make you feel? Jittery, etc? I’m not really sensitive to caffeine. I can drink stuff like NO explode or other pre workout drinks and have no problems. I was just wondering how these made you feel.


Janetha September 20, 2013 at 9:38 am

I had to stop NoExplode because it made me crazy.. tingly and jittery! I now use the Arginine Extreme for my preworkout (not part of the challenge, just another one of the products) and am LOVING it. I don’t miss my coffee, the spark in the morning actually makes me more energetic and alert than coffee, and I love that it has vitamins and aminos in it. The thermoplus doesn’t make me jittery, either, as some thermogenics have done in the past. I can honestly say everything I have tried so far I love–no crazy side effects and I feel great!


Aimee September 30, 2013 at 8:27 am

I used to use the Thermoplus but stopped b/c I thought I read it has soy in it. Is that true? I would like to take it again if it doesn’t contain soy.


Janetha September 30, 2013 at 8:39 am

Doesn’t look like it.. here is the product page. Scroll down to the ingredients:

I see you are into Nerium! My friend sells that and LOVES!

BZ September 22, 2013 at 7:06 pm

Yea! Just ordered mine, I cant wait to start! Is there anything other than ordering the product that needs to be done?


Janetha September 23, 2013 at 9:17 am

Hey! I saw that you got the products.. just email me with a note saying you are in and I will add that email you write from to the list :) You will start getting emails the Friday before the challenge!


Amelia September 24, 2013 at 8:54 am

Hi! Do they ship to canada?


Janetha September 24, 2013 at 10:00 am

I’m sorry, but they don’t :(


Stephanie @ Wholesome By Design September 24, 2013 at 6:26 pm

I would love to do this challenge but not right now. Are you going to hold another challenge at the start of the new year?


Janetha September 25, 2013 at 9:04 am

Most likely!


Katie September 24, 2013 at 10:03 pm

Hey lady,

I think I am totally going to get my ass I gear and do this. Tell me whats the difference between the Max c and s and such?



Janetha September 25, 2013 at 9:04 am

Hi! <3 The C is for appetite control, the E is for energy, and the 3 is for weight loss, energy, and overall wellness. I did the 3! If you have a lot of weight to lose, the C is preferred. If you are dragging and energy is your goal, the E is best. XO


maria September 26, 2013 at 4:31 pm

Thinking about it… when is the start date (when do i need my products by?)


Janetha September 27, 2013 at 11:49 am

texting you! oct 7…


Bonnie September 29, 2013 at 5:35 pm

Ahhh!! This is just what I need…I’ve never bought a product(s) like this before because I’ve been able to get strict and tighten up my diet to real foods but I’m in the EXACT boat you were – about 60% clean eating and it’s just not enough. I want to feel good in my skin again. I bought it (my mom split it with me for Christmas!) and sent it to her; it arrives Oct. 2nd and hopefully it will get to Canada by the 7th. If I get you my pics but I’m a day late to start, can I still be in for the challenge? Hopefully there are no border issues. THANKS! Can’t wait…


Janetha September 29, 2013 at 6:08 pm

OF COURSE! Yay, so excited to have your energy and see your success!


Bonnie September 29, 2013 at 10:26 pm

ps – super thrilled to hear about your GI issues…I bet you feel absolutely amazing and what a great, unexpected side effect! :D


Alex @ Alex Tries it Out October 1, 2013 at 12:05 pm

I saw your post, and it seems you had great success with this! Wish I could join you for the challenge, but with a marathon coming up very soon I’m hesitant to change up things with my stomach. I think I’ll check this out come October 21st, though!

Thanks for sharing!


Janetha October 2, 2013 at 9:27 am

Good luck on your race! That’s amazing. Let me know if you have questions when the time comes for you to do the challenge! I am happy to coach you along the way even though it’s going to be after the Holiday Hustle :)


Dawn October 6, 2013 at 6:31 pm

If I order tomorrow, when will the production arrive and when is the exact start date of the challenge? I want to try this as I need a kick start to eating better. I’m taking a brak from boot camp and running because of injuries, my eating, however needs to be reminded of this little fact. Seriously thinking about this.


Janetha October 6, 2013 at 7:35 pm

Hey! It actually starts tomorrow, so it’s a little late to join the actual Holiday Hustle. But you can do the 24 day challenge at any time and if you order it I am here to coach you along the way! I am happy to help even though you wouldn’t be in the hustle officially. I will also be doing a New Year challenge!


Dawn October 7, 2013 at 7:50 am

Thanks for posting back Janetha, I will definitely try the product and likely attempt to do the New Year challenge. The results you experienced are FANTABULOUS!


Sarah October 8, 2013 at 3:51 pm

Does this product ship to an APO?


Janetha October 8, 2013 at 8:41 pm



Allison October 22, 2013 at 9:40 am

Is there caffeine in the spark?


Allison October 22, 2013 at 9:46 am

One more question, did you use the Max3 or the Max C?



Jessica October 23, 2013 at 7:55 am

How many people have signed up for the holiday hustle so far?


Janetha October 23, 2013 at 9:09 am

Sorry! The hustle is actually over in one week :) There is a November challenge kicking off on Nov 1 if you want to get in on that!
