Today’s been great! It started out a bit on the slow side, and I must admit I was a bit sad to get out of bed, and face Day 2.  But after going grocery shopping, checking out some labels and finding a few food items that I actually found satisfying I began to think: ‘I can really do this!!’

Ok, so What is the Daniel Fast?

The Daniel fast is a spiritual fast intended to honour God and help to increase personal and spiritual discipline.  In the Bible Daniel fasted for 3 weeks “In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three full weeks. “I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.” Daniel 10:2, 3. 

To learn more about the Daniel Fast log onto (I’ve found this blog to be very helpful in preparing me for the fast).  The fast primarily consists of fruits, vegetables, and water.  When I decided to do this fast I must admit that I didn’t really know 100% what I was signing up for, however once I began doing my research on the days leading up to Day 1 of the fast I began to realize that as hard as it would be, it was doable if I prepared myself well.

One of my goals for 2011 is to significantly increase my discipline and learn how to say NO to myself specifically with things I can too easily over indulge in (i.e. food, TV. spending, etc.).  Instead I want to be more intentional about what I spend my time, and energies doing.  I am trusting God for the strength and determination to get through this fast and to grow spiritually throughout the experience.

Wwwwwwoooooooooooooooooooooooooaaaaaah for the end of Day 2!!!!!
