Week 4 was probably the most difficult week I've had yet, and it's because I spent the weekend out of town with a group of friends, where we barely leave the rental house and basically eat and drink all weekend. However, this time I packed my fuelings, prepped my own meals (okay, honestly I would have been doing that anyway because I was doing the food elimination and not eating dairy, gluten, meat, etc.). I didn't have any alcohol, although I could have had up to two shots of clear liquor each day and still stayed on the plan technically - and I would have gone with vodka and lime Bubly with a squirt of fresh lime. I still had an absolute blast even not drinking, I don't think anyone was the wiser (haha, I was pretty secretive that I wasn't drinking), and I drank the lime Bubly (sans vodka) in my drink cup, so I could alternate that with regular water.
Other than that though, my week was great! I feel so amazing. I decided I want to share Optavia with my friends and became a coach (more on that in another post). I even have my first client! I am still in awe over how good I feel, and how great I am sleeping at night.
Some of the things I worked on this week - the mental work is necessary for my success.
- Eating a larger variety of fuelings. I have a lot that I tend to skip over and put off eating until another time, so I'm being more aware of rotating through them all.
- Documenting everything in my app and my journal - food and water. I like to have it written down so I can go back and reference it if needed.
- Going to bed when I should and not staying up reading too late.
So here's my Week 4 details from my weigh in:
I lost 1.7 pounds this week!
That brings my total in three weeks - just 28 days - on Optavia to -20.5 pounds. AMAZING. I am SO proud of myself and I want to shout it from the rooftops how easy and foolproof this program is.
