And so I begin the Daniel Fast for the second time. I feel much more confident than I did during my fast last March. I’m anticipating 3 weeks of increasing self-discipline and devotion to the Lord. And hopefully not too many food cravings!
My goals for this fast include the following:
- Spend time every day in the Word and praying.
- Follow the eating plan and lose 10 pounds in the 21 days of fasting.
- Walk for 30 minutes every day.
- Drink a half-gallon of water every day.
Day 1 was pretty successful but today my toe decided to act up which meant no walking. Blah. I’m disappointed but also thankful that I don’t have to beat myself up or feel guilty like I used to. I think I’ve grown enough to realize that not reaching a goal today doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try again tomorrow. And so I will.
