I was the most excited about spark. Since I’ve started working in my current position I’ve become dependent on coffee. Despite what all the research and medical studies are saying about the health benefits of coffee, the coffee drinks I like are not healthy! They are loaded with milk, syrups, artificial flavoring, you name it. Even if I order my usual caramel or peppermint latte with nonfat milk I’m still looking at about 290 calories that I’m consuming in one beverage. So when I heard about spark I was stoked! Only 45 calories, no sugar, and energy without feeling jittery? I’m in!

All my advocare goodies showed up last night but my 24 day challenge isn’t starting until the 1st. I was so excited that I figured I’d at least try the spark and see if it is as amazing as all the reviews I’ve read or watched on YouTube. I received the watermelon flavor in my distributor kit so I grabbed that one this morning since one of the reviews (Mitch's review in particular) raved about the flavor.
The instructions say to mix the packet with 8oz of water, I generally like stuff like this a little bit watered down so I tried mixing it with about 10-12oz. WOW! Still way too much flavor for me.  I have a grande sized Starbucks tumbler that I drink from at work so I just went ahead and filled that baby up. Now it’s more to my liking, and I’m getting in about a cup more of water that I should be drinking anyway. I don’t know if watermelon is going to be my favorite flavor though. But that is not surprising considering I don’t usually like watermelon flavored anything; with the exception of jolly ranchers and this is definitely not that jolly rancher watermelon flavor. It’s not terrible but I’ll probably prefer the orange flavor.
Maybe you’ve seen those funny somecards or the pictures on pinterest with whatever funny looking animal who’s eyes are bugging out of his little head with a caption along the lines of “I put redbull in my coffee this morning and now I can see sounds!” Yeah I’m not all about that feeling. Which is why I steer clear of redbull or monster energy drinks. So I’m happy to tell you SPARK IS NOT LIKE THAT. I don’t feel wired. I don’t feel like I’m moving at warp speed while the rest of the world is standing still. I’m just here, awake, doing my job; exactly what I was hoping for! The last few days, right before lunch I’ve felt like I was dragging but today I’m focused and getting stuff done. I’m also not super hungry which is a plus in my book!
All in all I think this stuff is pretty great!
