Fast

If you notice, I've changed my goals a bit.  I've added back in the DVD workout since the kitchen is done and we can use our family room again.  I've also changed my walk goal to a total number of miles.  This is because I've actually been doing it that way for a little while.  If I'm really busy, I'll only walk 2 miles, but then the next day, I'll follow it up with a 5 mile walk to balance.  So, I said to myself why not just make that dang change?  And I did.  Also, the fasting.  I'm really glad I added this into my routine.  I've decided, though, that a 24-hour fast is too focused.  I don't want it to be about a specific time, but FOR a specific reason.  Of course, I won't be "fasting" for 2 hours.  But really, I'll keep the habit of fasting after dinner on night A until dinner of night B.  That way, it's more about my closeness to God than the 700 Calories I'd save on the food during the fast.

Remaining - NOTHING

That is pretty darn awesome! Great job Beej!

Two hour fasts . . . that struck me as funny. I would say that wouldn't be viewed as much of a sacrifice in God's eyes. :-) I thought it was interesting to read you are going to fast for a specific reason, not a time. That is an interesting concept. I suppose that is probably how the great prayer warriors did it. I seriously doubt any of the desciples said, "I am going to fast for 24 hours!" Instead, they probably thought something like, "This particular prayer needs all of me. I am praying and fasting until I feel the peace of God."

Great work for the week Beej! Enjoy the weekend.
