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 one...now 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!
