Off to a running start
Tuesday, January 04, 2011
Okay, so actually it isn't starting until tomorrow, but its close enough. We are doing a 'Daniel Fast' at our church to ring in the new year. I'm SO excited! Not only will this really get me moving in the right direction spiritually, but physically and nutritionally as well.
And I am SOOOOO ready for that!
I decided that I wasn't going to try and keep track of anything over Christmas, just eat in moderation and try to be reasonable with the sweets and other goodies I knew would be there. I had a lot of fun with my family and a great Christmas. I'm sure I put a little of any weight I lost back on, but seeing as I haven't even weighed myself since my initial starting weight, I wouldn't know! LOL!
So, we are starting our Daniel Fast tomorrow. It will be modified, since I have four children to keep fed and I am not comfortable cutting all meat and lots of other things out of my diet abruptly for the next 21 days since I'm nursing. We will be on a vastly different eating regimen, though. I can already feel myself detoxing after all those cookies...Whee!
All the extra water and veggies and fruit will definitely jump start my weight loss and start us off right in a new healthier lifestyle. I am committing to getting healthier in 2011, body, mind and spirit!
Praise God Who makes all things new! I look forward to feeling like a new person in and through Him!
