One Down...Nine to go...

I made it through day one!  I know that days 1-3 will be the most difficult.  After that, your stomach kind of gets used to the lack of food.  It was a bumpy start though.  I got to school and realized that although I had brought some yogurt for snacks, I had forgotten the protein shake that was supposed to energize me and get me through the morning!  And on top of that, my kids earned a reward and chose to eat in the room today so my room smelled so yummy!  (Yes, cafeteria food often smells better than it tastes.)  So, at my planning time, I went to the store and got some packets of no sugar added instant breakfast and half a gallon of milk.  That got me through the afternoon.

While I was driving home, all I could think about was making a cup of chicken bouillon.  While I waited for that to heat up, I ate some cottage cheese.  I never thought cottage cheese could taste so incredibly good! 

Tonight, I had to return a movie and I wanted a tea.  Max was with me and I caved and got him a burger.  I can honestly say that he got it all...I didn't even taste a morsel of it! 

So I made it through day I am fasting - HA!  for my bloodwork in the morning.  At least it's not hard to fast when there's not much you can eat anyway!  I have to be at the hospital (40 minutes away) at 8:00 in the morning for all my pre-surgery blood work and xrays.  It might behoove me to get to bed! 

Thanks for praying me through the day!
