OPTAVIA Fueling Hack - Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownie

I know I have gone on and on about how I prefer not to "hack" the Fuelings, and I still choose not to add stuff to them - I eat my five Fuelings plus my full Lean and Green every day. 

HOWEVER, I was tired of seeing the Girl Scout cookies peanut butter patties on my counter, so this was my alternative. You mix a Brownie Fueling with 3T-4T of water, pour it into a silicone candy mold, top it with 2T of PB2 (prepared as directed)

It made eight heart shaped "candies" in this Wilton silicone mold





They aren't really easy to eat when they're frozen, but once they soften enough to eat them, they're sticky and messy and it just seems like more work than it's worth for the benefit. 

HOWEVER, the taste is worth it, if you're wanting that chocolatey-peanut buttery mix of flavors! 

This isn't something I'll do often at all, but it was fun to try it and see that it does work. 

I also did this with a chocolate shake and peanut butter shake - you can see that here: http://www.myjourneytoahealthyme.com/2020/12/optavia-fueling-shake-hack.html

Progress update - smaller jeans!

I started following the 5&1 program on October 12. That’s less than 4 months ago if your sense of time is skewed like mine right now. 

My goals were more about how I felt rather than my weight. My dream goal was to fit into size 10 jeans again - I’m 5’10” so that is (I thought) a comfortable size for me. 

Today I pulled out some size 8 jeans. They fit perfectly. It’s extra funny because just yesterday I shared this first picture - size 16 to size 10 jeans (same brand, style, rise, etc) and I knew the 10s were getting big but didn’t think the 8s would fit yet. 

This program works!
