Two days… not too shabby. Two days is a huge feat for me. I fasted, having two snacks during the day that did not equal a meal (per our priest; not mandatory, mind you), and a modest meal in the evening.
I did get a bit crabby right after lunch but water and/or a piece of fruit took care of that. That mood is understandable considering I am surrounded by kids all day. Perhaps at the end of these forty days my mood will be, “I did get a second wind right after lunch which is understandable considering I am surrounded by kids all day.” Any wagers, anyone?
