the hardest day!

yesterday, i was sitting in church when our lead pastor announced the church is planning on a 21 day daniel fast for lent, the days leading up to easter.  doing  a quick calculation i realized i would be away for most of it. off the hook! then p.tim quickly described the 21 day daniel fast...basically it's a fast from everything but water, fruits and veggies

my first thought was

1- that's easy. i can totally do that

2-wait. that's not smart for me at this time in my life. over the last month ive made some noticeable changes in my diet...i eat 3-4 times a day,  meat every other day (almost) lots of iron and protein just to name a few. i've already noticed a difference, chris too...ive gain weight, not that i can tell you how much because i dont and will not weigh myself! but my clothes are tight and my face is round.  this is AWESOME.  in the future i can go into more detail about why ive decided to do this....

so instead i quickly thought, what can i give up that would make me pay (haha)???

my answer made me quiver in fear

sweat broke out

i started to have a mini panic attack

before i could chicken out, i looked at my freind who was just happened to be sitting there beside me and said "coffee. starting tomorrow"

so, today, the first time EVER. i have gone with out a coffee and i have 20 more days to go...which i KNOW will lead me into march break....sigh...

i have to thank my friends and family who helped me through the day today. because, im not gonna lie. it was ROUGH!!!  i had the shakes, anxiety tried to butt in around 12, but i made a tea...which ive now decided is the drink for the weak (sorry dad)  and sipped my tea as i taught science (metamorphosis of butterflies)  and history (black history in canada)  but im sorry. it did no good. i felt sluggish, sweaty and blue all day

but ive made it!  i did it!  i went 24 hr with out a java!!!!  i can do 20 more......sigh

until then my bestie in the the cup, i miss you....i will see you in 20 days.....

for me, this is the hardest fast i have ever done!
