27 days of fitness

So… today marks day 27! Day 27 of WHAT you ask?!?! Well some of the ladies who I did the Daniel Fast with at my church suggested we continue working on our physical health after we completed the fast.  We committed to doing 21 days of fitness (going to the gym, or working out in some way, shape or form) for 21 days straight.  Well I ...

Day 21 – Daniel Fast

  So, today is day 21… and this marks the end of my Daniel Fast.  This evening I was spending time with some friends I reflected on how nice it felt to have made it 21 days, and as I shared about my experience I was reminded that the BIGGEST lesson that God has taught me during this fast is The race is not ...

Day 19 – Daniel Fast

So I was talking with a friend today, who shared that one of her friends mentioned/insinuated that the Daniel Fast wasn’t a legitimate fast, and basically not as good as fasting completely from all food.  My friend and I both disagreed with that idea, and began sharing how important it is to not feel ‘judged’ or put down by others when following your personal ...

Day 18 – Daniel Fast

Today I’ve been thinking about something I read in Joyce Meyer’s book – Power Thoughts “Success begins with a thought”.  I find that statement very motivating!  I believe that getting to day 18 of the Daniel Fast has come with the practice of thinking and believing that I could really do it (with God’s Grace of course). I also read somewhere that it takes ...

Day 15 – Daniel Fast

Ok, very brief post tonight.  Just checkin in… and checkin out… I committed to writing a blog a day for 2011, and again just like last week (on the weekend) I almost forgot. I’ve really got to implement something that will help me MAKE SURE I don’t miss!  I’m not as young as I used to be and I am imagining that at some point this poor brain of mine will eventually fail ...

Day 13 – Daniel Fast

It’s 3:30pm on day 13 and the STRUGGLE IS ON!!! I was diving home from a meeting this afternoon, and I saw a man in the car beside me sipping ever so gracefully on his Tim Horton’s beverage (I imagined it was a large tea, 3 sugars and 2 milks… just how I like it) And I wanted to reach through my car window ...

Day 12 – Daniel Fast

So things aren’t getting any easier!!  Thought by now I’d have the swing of things, and not be craving all the food I have restricted myself from having on the fast…. BUT NO!!! The cravings are still here! Alive and well!  Is it frustrating? Yes, but should it be surprising? No! The whole point of this fast has been to increase my personal discipline, ...
