We failed miserably this Christmas. I crumbled under family pressure. Let’s just say, some of our extended family are not on board with our recent lifestyle changes. Many have expressed concern for our “deprivation” and they have voiced their dislike for our new food dishes. So when it came time to create the Christmas dinner menu, I buckled. I resorted to some yummy dishes that were once our favorites. One day wouldn’t hurt us, right? Wrong! One day has affected us in more ways than we could have ever imagined. There have been stomachs, headaches, mood swings, cravings, tiredness, and other unmentionables. We’ve all experienced an all time low.
Still, we give thanks to the Good Lord for allowing us to fall short this Christmas. This step back has given us a much needed boost to move forward and continue with a new lifestyle change that is counter to what we have known and are currently surrounded with. It’s not easy to eat clean when we’re trying to accommodate the desires of others or our flesh. We must keep our eyes on Him and continue down the path that He has led us, a path of eating clean—to glorify God.
Let the detox begin!
