Awakening 2010 and redo C25K
Sunday, January 10, 2010
Good morning all. Today is Jan. 10, 2010 and it is the first day of Awakening 2010. Awakening is an annual 3-week fast that my church hosts. You can read more about it if you wish at www.awake21.org.
. I will be participating for the first time this year with a strict version of the Daniel Fast. Until Jan. 30th I will be eating nothing but fruits, veggies and soy protein. I will also drink nothing but water and green tea. It will a challenge but one that I am ready for. Due to this fast I will mellowing out a little on the workouts. I will still walk everyday and I am starting the Couch to 5k program today as well. I may also still do my EA Active on the Wii. But since I will be eating less than 1000 calories per day I am not going to overdo it with the cardio.
I am doing this for spiritual reasons but since I have a wedding coming up in a few short weeks I am excited about the aspect of being smaller on my wedding also. I have never done anything like this before but it will be a time for me fall facedown before God and pray for some really big things this year.... my marriage, my health and my finances are my biggest. Also to draw me closer to Him and to see him move in my life. I have been a Christian for a very long time but as an adult I have tended to turn my back on Him too much. I want that to change. I am looking forward to this.
My starting weight for this 3-week challenge is 219.2
