Told y’all I’d keep you updated.
Today marks 4 months.
4 months since Chris, Asher and I, along with our entire church, went on the Daniel Fast.
Not gonna lie, those first days were hard. No coffee, no sugar, no preservatives. Pretty much no nothin’.
But God showed up in a huge way, and we all managed to finish out the three weeks without killing ourselves or each other.
After the 21 day fast, Asher and I decided to start the Daniel Plan – a modification of the fast.
And we started exercising, a non-negotiable part of the Daniel Plan.
But it was a good thing, for both of us.
We’ve both found our
And our favorite healthy foods.
And here we are, 4 months later. It’s been such a journey.
I am so proud of my boy (who graciously allowed me to use his pictures to illustrate).
He has changed so much, it’s hard to accurately capture it in pictures.
He’s grown over an inch. Has lost 18 pounds. And has a whole different outlook on exercise, eating and honoring God with his body.
We’re going to continue on with this new and oh-so-different lifestyle. We’ve finally settled into a comfortable rhythm.
And other than missing chocolate like crazy for one week every month, and wishing I had a completely different metabolism, there really isn’t anything I’d want to change.
To be honest, is the first time I’ve ever tried to work out and eat healthier for a purpose other than shaping up and/or losing weight. Our goal, from the beginning, was to be obedient to God and follow His promptings to take better care of ourselves and the one and only – love it or not – body He’s blessed us with.
And God makes all the difference.
