Daniel Fast Day 10

10 Jan

I’m half way there guys!!! Today I woke up feeling a lot better and wanted to hit the gym to get back into the swing of things. I am so afraid of losing so much weight while fasting, so I had cut down my gym routine tremendously. I miss it though. I find myself eating less and less and I think that I will only eat salads and a few stir-fry’s here and there for the rest of the fast. I have really enjoyed making all the different meals and it really opened my mind to what the vegan lifestyle is really like. I have come to enjoy my veggie sausages and didn’t think that I would actually finish the 4-pack during the fast. I bought so much food initially that it was actually enough for the entire fast. I have to buy some more bananas for my oats but that’s it. Like I mentioned this morning, I love the person that I am becoming, I am just thinking things through a little bit more and I am blessed! How could one ever say they aren’t blessed?

Today’s reading is from Luke 7 and I will continue to read the next 3 chapters of Revelation for my bible study.

Be blessed!

Daniel Fast Day 9

10 Jan

Yesterday I was so sick!!! The entire day! I had to force myself to eat oats and a banana around 3 in the afternoon. I’m sure it was those amazing tacos that I had but I don’t think ill eat it ever again. I drank Pellegrino with lemon and had a bottle of water. I was not feeling it at all.

I did manage to complete my bible reading for the fast, Luke 6 which was when Jesus chose His disciples. I do realize that I have more talks with God and I am conscience of what I’m saying or how I am reacting to certain things. I notice more people talking to me about the fast and their issues. It allows me to uplift those who I would have never thought needed the encouragement. I love the person I am becoming.

Be blessed!

Daniel Fast Day 8

9 Jan

I heard a great word in service today and oddly enough the Pastor was discussing fasting. Thank God I am fasting to draw closer to God because if not, I would have definitely felt awkward because of what he said. He said something along these lines, “Fasting does not make you holy. God will not hear your prayers over anyone elses because you are fasting. If you’re fasting to become more holy then you should stop fasting and go eat ten cream puffs.” I don’t even know what a cream puff is but I am glad that is not the case for me. Later he went on to say, “Because we serve a God of goodness, He will bless you no matter if you are good or not.” So many people fail to realize that God is good to them all the time even if they do not walk after Him. He is always looking out for His greatest creation yet people call it luck, I call it favor!

Today I was a bad girl and didn’t eat my first meal until about 6 pm today but it was amazing and delicious. I had a small bag of mixed raw nuts during service. Then after service I had a small bag of freshly popped popcorn and a hand full of my tortilla chips. That was it all day. Lots of water though but no food. So after searching high and low for soft tortilla wraps with no preservatives, I finally found some but they were frozen and I was hungry so that wasn’t going to work. Then I walked my way over to the taco aisle and discovered white corn hard shell tacos which are all natural!

I made a bean and corn filling for my tacos. The recipe was from vegetarian times. http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recipes/9129.

I added a few of my own things as usual: mushrooms, spinach, fresh black ground pepper, avocado, and vegan cheese. (Which wasn’t too bad … The cheese.) I didn’t use the sour cream and I also had a little bit of brown rice on the side. Amazing meal and I will definitely make this again after the fast, it was very good.
