I have some good news and bad news. I am going to share my bad news first. I have decided to end our Sacrifice Challenge early due to some health issues. Last night after dinner we were all sitting around having some family time when I had a gallbladder attack. I haven’t had an attack for months due to eating healthier, exercising, and losing weight. I thought I was out of danger, but I have a feeling this challenge triggered something causing an attack. My normal diet consists of tons of fiber, veggies, chicken, whole wheat pastas and bread, and healthy fats. I do splurge more than I should, but with my gallbladder issues I have really tried to be good. This week consisted of tons of red meat, very few vegetables, and very little fiber which is why I had an attack last night. So due to my gallbladder issues I have cut our week long challenge short.
We have learned so much this week and I wouldn’t take it back because it has been a great experience. Today Garrett was complaining because of the healthy snack choices I was giving him and I quickly reminded him that we could always go back to eating Ugandan food. He changed his mind really fast. It will be a great experience to look back on if only to remind them what they could eat if the complain.
The good news is that I am feeling 100% better today. My attack last night was a pretty short attack lasting only about an hour.
I haven’t exactly decided what our next challenge will be but you can stay tuned for a new challenge coming up in February. Our kids have been coming up with great ideas for future challenges. I think they are afraid of what I might come up with.
I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow worshipping our GREAT God!!!
