I have done Lent for years as an adult, so that I can show God that I appreciate and value ALL that he has done for me.
So, I decided that I would participate in the 21 Day Corporate Fast with my church.
And, for some strange reason this has been the hardest test. LOL
I guess because when I observe Lent, I give up things that really “hurts” a true sacrifice! I give up things like Social Media, red meat and pork, alcohol and sweets.
However, our church consist of FISH, VEGGIES AND FRUITS ONLY!!!
So, I’ve had to pull out all the stops and creative dishes. Because you can certainly get tired of just fish for 21 days. On a later post, I’ll share some of my meals that I’ve had this far. TODAY IS DAY TEN of the fast.
I’m hanging in there and trying to make it to the FINISH LINE!!!
I love food and since I have started on my #GetFit journey, I wanted to try new things and try to incorporate them in my day to day eating habits.
About 2 months ago, I tried chik patties and it was actually good. I prefer them in the oven, although if you don’t have much time you can put them in the microwave (I personally don’t care to do it that way).
So, this is what I had for lunch today and I paired it with avocado and drizzled a little of my avocado cilantro dressing on it and it was YUMMY! 🙂
It’s important to eat for a BETTER YOU and it’s very exciting to try new things! And, it doesn’t hurt to try something once and if you don’t like it– you don’t have to get it again…just to try it out and if you like it.
So, during your weekly shopping… pickup something NEW and give it a try! You might be surprised and actually like it!!! I’m still on my journey and I am going to make this fun and exciting. Two years ago, I would have never picked up anything that veggie based or even give up pork, but I did.
Well, I thought it was going to be quick and easy for me today. Makeup and dress, that’s all I had to do. I begin to apply my makeup and I did it in record timing (30 minutes).
Once I was done with makeup, I took my dress off the hanger that I was prepared to wear… and it was so cute. I put it on and all of my UNDERGARMENT STRAPS are exposed and there’s no way to fix this situation at this point.
Remember, I had this planned out in advance because it was for the Pretty Hat Tea event at my church. And, with a tea party… you need hats! Well, my hat went with original dress.
Fast forward to me having to make a quick decision! Being plus size, it’s NOT always easy to make last minute wardrobe changes– especially if you purchase something specific for the event. Although, you may have a closet full of clothes – it doesn’t mean it will be an easy fix.And, after THREE CHANGES… this had to be my FINAL SELECTION. Still cute and that’s all that mattered.
