“But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself…”

Day 2 Reflection

Reflecting on Day 2, I had to truly rely on my purpose. I snacked on raw almonds and ate a hearty salad, but I felt content despite some temptations. I am a chocolate lover and the idea of not being able to grab one of those chocolate and mint or even chocolate and peanut butter energy bars seemed to nag at me at various times throughout the day. I went back to Daniel 1:8 and my purpose. That fed me throughout the day with a mix of mini cardio and strength training sessions. Thank God for Him supplying strength through His Word.

Focus on Faith

Today we focus on Daniel’s commitment to remain undefiled during Live @ Lunch Bible Study. Our biblical focus is Daniel 1:1-16. We look at what Daniel was both refusing and requesting regarding his daily provisions. What we tend to see is that those ten days might have been a test, but I can only imagine how much personal strength and confidence it took for Daniel to even take the risk to make his request known to his captors. I want to keep my focus on my faith as a part of my detox journey.

Focus on Fuel

I got to mix things up a little bit today. The vegetarian chili was a great kickstart to this 10-Day Detox Challenge, but I am itching for something else. I might roast some broccoli and cauliflower with some quinoa or brown rice plus a hearty salad of mixed greens. That sounds like a plan.

Focus on Fitness

This morning I kicked off my workday with a brief session of modified pushups and stretches. I tend to take the first 10 minutes of my day doing my AM workout and downing at least 10 ounces of water. By organizing my fitness breaks throughout the day, I have managed to keep my energy level up to par and I have been able to push through some periods of the day that usually found me looking for a nap or midday siesta.

This has been a great time to mix up my workouts, too. Last night’s breathing exercises and stretching yoga poses settled me in for a good night’s rest and got me in a comfortable place for just sleeping through the night. If I keep this up with daily fitness breaks, I will find myself in an entirely different place come Christmas Eve at the end of this 10-Day Detox Challenge.
