Excerpt: The Pursuit of God, The Human Thirst for the Divine, A.W. Tozer

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, The Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, "Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away." Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wondered so long. In Jesus' name. Amen

Day 2 Results

I was so tired after not sleeping well on Monday night that I went to bed at 8 p.m. on Tuesday and slept (give or take a few) 12 hours!  Slight headache was still hanging on.  But I took some Excedrine and took a nice hot bath and it disappeared for the most part!

1 egg, 1 slice toast, 1/2 banana

I used a non-stick skillet for my egg so that I would not have to use any grease.  It still stuck!  I put the egg on one slice of the skinny, round bread and it was very good!

1 c. cottage cheese, 1 hard boiled egg, 5 saltine crackers

I like to eat at lunch at 11 so that by 1 I've digested the food and I can walk.  I cannot walk on a full stomach.  I get cramps and just feel miserable!  I needed to go to Walmart to get more water, so I did that before my walk.

1:30 - time to hit the pavement!  I changed up my route today.  I started at the car port, walked up the parking lot and over and around the fellowship hall out and around the back of the church property, back around the church by the weeping willow tree, down the parking lot, up the drive, across the property by the road, back down the side of the house next to the field beside the house and back to the car port.  In the half hour, I was able to do 7 laps as described and a couple laps around just the parking lot.

I took this picture because one of the songs I listened to on my cardio tape was the song by Carole King, I Feel the Earth Move (under my feet).  You can see the ear phone wires hanging down and the tape player clipped over the top of my pants.

2 turkey hot dogs (no bread), 1 c. broccoli, 1/2 c. carrots, 1/2 banana and 1/2 c. vanilla ice cream

I cooked the hot dogs in the toaster oven because I cannot eat hot dogs boiled!  Instead of cooking the broccoli, I ate it raw.  I did the same to the carrots.  It was a good meal, but for some reason I was hungry an hour after I ate!  But I did not snack!

Water intake today:  120 oz.

Tomorrow is my last day!  Anxious for Friday to roll around so I can see how much weight I loose!  That will tell me whether the diet was worth it or not!  If so, I will probably do it again and make some allowed substitutions!
