Week 3 was super easy and super quick. I still can't get over how easy it is to follow the Optavia 5-1 program.
Some of the things I worked on this week - the mental work is necessary for my success.
- Less caffeine. I already didn't drink much, but I was drinking a ton of tea and the occasional cold brew coffee. I'll still do that occasionally (especially when I mix the cold brew with one of the Optavia shakes - yum), but I'm more conscientious of it.
- Documenting my foods, even just the fuelings, so I know which ones I am eating when and can track patterns.
- Limiting fueling bars to 2 per day. I've read they have a higher glycemic index than other fuelings and to limit them most days, unless it's one of those wacky days where you're out and about and can't easily accommodate the other fuelings.
So here's my Week 3 details from my weigh in:
I lost 4.2 pounds!
That brings my total in three weeks - just 21 days - on Optavia to -18.8 pounds. Holy crap. I can really see and feel the difference in my bust and my waist. And, my face is much thinner too - noticeably so.
