Day 21 of 21 Day Challenge!!!!

OK..Don’t get too excited.  Apparently, I can’t do math because we’re actually day 20 not 21.  I don’t know how that happened but we will be officially done on Monday!  My first splurge is a chocolate protein shake that I’ve been craving to have.  Other than that, I’m going to continue my new routine and eat a plant based diet.  It’s been great.  I feel full and I feel satiated.  I’m not going to think about it too much.  It’s a lifestyle change and I’m happy I could prove to myself that I could do it!

The last 21 days, I haven’t had any sugar, alcohol, caffeine, dairy, meat products, processed food, fried foods, and I survived!!!  Actually, I feel awesome and I’m really glad I did this.  I’m really grateful for my friends that joined me in this challenge.  I appreciate the support and the accountability.

As I shared before, the main focus of this fast was for spiritual reasons.  There were four areas of my life that I felt stuck in and it felt immovable.  I could not in my own power change my heart or circumstances.  I needed God’s help and his grace to help me overcome.  Well, here we are at day 21 (technically day 20) and I’m so happy to announce that GOD has answered all four of those impossible prayers!!!  I am blown away!  My faith has increased and I’m more convinced of his presence in my life than ever before.  I feel very humbled to know that only HE could answer those prayers.  Two of the prayers were about specific relationships that I could not break through.  I’m happy to say there is peace in my heart for those relationships and it’s no longer a stumbling block for me.  The other two prayer requests has to do with career choices/paths.  WOW!  God didn’t just show up but he showed off!!!  I believe that God is looking for faithful people and he’s just waiting to shower us with his blessings.  God didn’t just meet the expectations, he exceeded it mightily!  Sorry I’m being a little cryptic.  I will share more details as they come but as for now, I just have to say that I am extremely grateful and humbled for the blessings.  I totally don’t deserve it but I will gladly take it and give him all the glory!

Thank you for following along.  I’m so encouraged by your support and love.   At the end of the day, isn’t that what we desire?  To be seen, known, and loved anyway!?  I am on cloud nine right now and I want you to know I’m here for you.

Day 5 of 21 Day Challenge!

Day 5

Clarity! In order to have clarity, you need to take away distractions. What kind of distractions do you have? Food? Social media? TV? Gossip? Worry? Bills? Relationships, Drama? Too many things on your plate?


What can you start stripping from your life today?  I’m notorious for over packing my schedule.  I have no problems teaching three classes, drive my kids to activities, run my errands, clean, make dinner, and go to a birthday party all in one day.  I appreciate my very wise husband who teaches me to say “no”.  Just because I can, doesn’t mean I should.  So, I had to cancel some things for this weekend and now I have some space to breathe and just be.  I don’t have to do everything!!!  Whew!!!

Are you praying for clarity? When we are bogged down with “stuff” it’s easy to have too much chatter in our brain.  During this fast, focus on the letting go of the things that no longer serve you.  It will be hard…but it will be freeing:)))

 

During this cleanse, I’m eating pretty much a vegan diet.  It’s really not that bad.  The food is tasty and I feel so much better.  My only gripe is that it takes a lot longer to prepare and plan.  Other than that, I’m doing well and haven’t cheated at all!  Yay me!
Much love,
Judy
