As we are ending Lent and headed for Resurrection Sunday, Dale decided that we would fast from sun down on Friday to sunrise on Sunday. I am now into this deal for about 6 hours and so far so good. I am kind of curious to see how the food cravings go tomorrow. I am sure the time spent in prayer and devotion will distract from my mind telling me that I need to break into the kid's Easter candy. By the way, we do not celebrate the Easter Bunny but we do have candy for the children on Easter morning. It is fun and a tradition. I am pretty sure I will be the first to wake up Sunday and eat candy. Hopefully, I will contain myself. My hope is that the next hours will not only bring me to a closer time with Christ but also ween me from "bad" foods. I hope that this small sacrifice of giving up food and spending extra time in prayer will bring me closer to my Savior.

I am just soooo sleepy

Since I have been working on cutting out the bad and putting in the good, I have become exhausted. I feel so tired all the time and my migraines have increased. I wondered if this was normal. I have read a few things about detoxes. Maybe this would help boost my system by getting the bad stuff out faster. I am not sure. I do know that I want to sleep at least 12 hours a day.

Jillian is a Christian

Yes, this is not weight loss news, but I thought I'd share. She prayed and accepted salvation Tuesday night. Her baptism will be Sunday. Dale is going to baptize her so that is exciting, too.
This all makes me want to try harder to be healthy. I want to be there for her as she grows up in life and grows in Christ. She is such a wonderful child. I am blessed beyond measure.

About the whole living healthy thing. I walked about 2 miles today (it is a guess cause we walked forever) and ate healthy. That is until tonight when a box of Crunch and Munch was found when I woke up sleepy. I always want crunchy sweet food when I first wake up. So, other than that I did well. I even passed 4 Wendy's on the way home today and was craving their new Bacon Bleu burger. I avoided temptation and made it home without a pound of hamburger and bacon in my stomach. All in all I would say today was terrific.
