Did I ever share with y'all that my church has a thing every January called "Awakening"? Come to find out other churches do it as well but because this is my first year with this new church, I didn't know that.
So anyway, Awakening. 21 days of a "Soul Detox". I don't think you're supposed to really talk about it, it should be private. Is that right? But I am dang proud to be doing my first fast, especially for 21 days.
Y'all, people have brought in cakes and candy this week. I have resisted and kept on trucking with my fruits and veggies! I'm probably going to turn into a banana by the end of January. It could be worse I guess.
I'm not going to lie though, I am pretty hungry haha! Being Southern just doesn't help me. I love my butter and sweets. But the crazy thing about this, is that since I've started, I haven't craved all of the horrible food that I did before. It's like those cravings just stopped. I don't want sweets at all or anything with butter. I kind of like not being able to eat certain foods like milk, dairy, etc. The process is much easier. I'm only on day 4 but I'm already contemplating continuing after the 21 days are up. And by continue I mean no meats or sweets. Well okay, a sweet on occasion. Wouldn't that be vegetarian? ha!
I'm pretty excited to see how long I will last. It sure does make weighing in every Friday a lot more bearable LOL!
Have any of y'all done a spiritual fast before? A soul detox? Any advice/tips!?
Happy Thursday y'all!
