Hello and Greetings from my bed on January 1, 2012!!! Thank God for allowing us to see a New Year! Not going to write too much this evening, I will write a Day 1 Pt. 2 post tomorrow.
However, I have been on a food shopping rampage for the last two days and I am pooped out! This afternoon after church I immediately went to the grocery store to buy some veggie burgers and ended getting these brilliant ideas for more meals during the fast. Such as: veggie sausages in homemade Italian sauce, spinach whole wheat orzo and homemade hummus. The day before was a mess and a half because after the gym I went to three different farmers markets to get fruits and veggies. I will try and post a picture of my fridge last night. So, when I got home from shopping this afternoon I attacked all the fruits and veggies and started separating them into sandwich bags so I wouldn’t have to do it daily. 7 hours later I am writing this blog! Wow!! I achieved a lot the only thing I didn’t do was eat the entire time and cut two heads of lettuce. Lol!
Tomorrow I will tell you the rest of my Day 1 and oh before I forget my dinner was awful but I am mentally preparing myself for this box of cereal until the end of the fast. I had shredded wheat cereal with unsweetened soy milk. I am already used to drinking soy but with vanilla flavor however this cereal shouldn’t be sold in stores. It gets soggy wayyyy too quickly and I do not like soggy cereal. I wanted to gag while eating this cereal. Tomorrow morning before the gym I know to add fruit and less milk!
I am reading my usual bible reading (the next three chapters of Revelation for my bible study on Wednesday) and I am also reading Psalms 1 & 2 for the Daniel Fast!
Have a good night!
This is the refrigerator, lots of veggies behind veggies!
For those of you who follow my blog, who are also fasting, may God give you strength during this journey to draw closer to Him. Xoxo
