When I left work the hunger pangs started in on me. I finally ate some raw chicken noodle soup around 7pm.
|Breakfast, lunch, snack, early dinner......|
|The water fast breaker - raw "chicken" noodle soup|
And I had 3 potato chips!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just three though!!! LOL!
I am proud of my accomplishment! I have never completed ANY fast. Granted this fast was for one day, but I'm happy about it.
What got me through it? Thanks for asking....
1. I had a made up mind. I possessed the determination to see the challenge through. The mind is a POWERFUL tool.
2. I didn't focus on food. When lunch time hit, I was outdoors (being chased by cicadas - have MERCY!!) going for a run. I avoided even smelling other people's lunch.
3. I had support. I knew others were doing it with me. I also was texting a friend throughout the day to keep me laughing.
I know now that I can do ANYTHING I set my mind to DO.
Now I have no excuse to GET IT TOGETHER!! I have shown myself that self determination and self control is available for me to tap into.
Peace and blessings!
