Hi all and thanks for all your comments. I have been meaning to add that! They all mean so much to me! You are all so inspiring!
I went for a walk yesterday. I guess with all the sunshine I didn't realize it was sooooo cold out...24 with a wind chill of about 13. Anyway, when I got back from my 30 minute walk, my legs felt like boards...stiff and cold. I sat down at the computer to check my mail and I just started feeling sick all over and spent the rest of the day in bed or on the couch or floor...trying to relieve my calf pain, which I did with ice and exercise.
I am enjoying this journey in Lent and what is really helping me is knowing others are coming along with me, like a few Spark friends and friends from church too. We are all in it together! PTL!!!
I am on track with my Bible reading, praying, praying the rosary and my food commitment of NO fatty chocolate, no pizza, no fast food. I did have a fat free fudge bar yesterday and it was great.......it is the Popsickle brand.......I think it may be reduced fat, not fat free. Anyway, it was great. I ate it slowly and enjoyed it!!!

WOW, I am so glad I did the 3 day veggie, fruit, water and a handful of almonds. I just feel so good; not sure how to say it, but it is like I have all this energy! Last night I almost got into the potato chips. This is a veggie right??? I just felt the devil pulling on me, but I told him to bug off! This is bringing me closer to God.....especially in the times we are living in...with the economy being so bad!
It seems like once a week or so, I read about someone taking their lives! How sad to feel that things are so bad that people exit out! I pray for people that are on that verge....that they get help, seek Him! I am not going to get all melodramatic now!That is NOT who I am.......just thinking......we really need to be positively minded more now than ever and remember all of our blessings DAILY!

OK, this is the last day of the 3 day fruits, veggies, water, and almonds. I do feel a little hungry; got to have my almonds. I have not had those yet; shame on me. DD called this am and was not feeling all that great....Well, duh, i told her, only water, coffee and a fruit smoothie over the past 3 days! But she is totally doing this......her sacrifice for the glory of God, and I love that! She is dating this new guy since November and he is a fallen away Catholic like her, and they are totally committed to attending mass every Sunday! That is a big ..........I have even said Novenas for this gal!!! I am hoping he may be the one!
I need to go and read my Bible now.......I actually really look forward to it!

I just get too weak, but I am doing a 3 day fruits, veggie, liquids.I did have a few almonds and will do the same today.....Got to have some protein! I feel I can do it! I have been reading my Bible and just finished 2 Thes. Wow, that book is really interesting.....you might want to check it out. We are one day closer to spring and glad I got out for a walk this morning. It is supposed to rain this afternoon!
