Day One of my Punishment Detail.
It’s been twelve hours, twenty-two minutes and seventeen seconds since I had a bite of food in my mouth. Only two and a half days to go. I can feel myself weakening. Almost fell down the stairs. No strength. I think my ribs are sticking out. How can I keep going? Not even a cup of coffee to comfort me. So…tired…camt fele teh kaybrod…goin daaarrrrkkkk…eajfaliiooooeeeeeeeeee jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj
…NOT!!! I don’t quite have enough fat to live as long as a polar bear through the winter, but I bet I could go a couple of weeks minus calories.
It’s kind of interesting, last night I found myself kind of perversely looking forward to this week of fasting. It’s a challenge, and I am all about that. Nor really feeling the hunger yet, but I do miss my coffee. However, Beth and I were talking, and you know what? We both want to do this correctly. I really want to focus on God during this time, so that when I feel the hunger I am pointed toward Him. I want this to be a time of prayer and focus; spiritual awareness. Hunger and I are not friends, so this is definitely out of my comfort zone.
In times past when we did the Daniel fast, I remember having a caffeine headache for two days, and my kidneys ached for four. Interestingly, no headache today. We have cut back on caffeine intake, so hopefully we’ll be relatively ok with that. I am a bit hungry, but that’ll change; I expect that I’ll be real hungry later on. I find myself tired, but that I expect will improve. During our last Daniel fast I missed the coffee for a few days, but then not so badly.
And I tried to convince my wife last night that hops and malt should be allowed on this diet. They’re grains, right? She didn’t buy it.
