Today is DAY 1 of my journey to health! I am so excited. I have alarms set on my phone for 8 am, 10:30 am, 1 pm, 3:30 pm, 6 pm, and 8:30 pm to remind me to eat - five of those are fueling times, and one is a lean and green time.
I decided to keep it easy and I'm literally just following the plan. I see some people go out and try to split their lean and green into two meals and eat half at lunch and half at dinner, or try to "hack" their fuelings, but I'm not messing with all that. I'm eating a fueling by itself five times a day, and one full lean and green once a day.
I don't really like meat, and meat doesn't really like me, so I'll probably have to eat a lot of seafood.
The journal from the Optavia Guide is super helpful in keeping me on track so far. I started my day with a cranberry honey nut bar and then had a creamy chocolate shake mid-morning. I tried the rustic tomato herb penne at 1pm and then a creamy peanut butter crisp bar late afternoon, with my lean and green at 6pm with lettuce, tuna, avocado, and on-plan dressing. Before bed, I had a chocolate mint Cookie Crisp bar, and that was my five fuelings plus a lean and green for today.
My coach checked in with me and I told her I feel like I've been eating all day long, but otherwise everything is good! I'm used to drinking a lot of water, so hitting 100oz wasn't a problem for me.
She told me to dream big - average loss is 10lbs per month but she lost faster than that the first few months.
Overall, it was a good day 1!
