Being in the office has been a lot of fun today as always! I am not going to lie I am dragging a bit, all of these heavy foods don’t always agree with me.

I enjoyed your comments about my fasting today, it is seriously been such a humbling experience to step into the “non-westerners” world. Giving up deodorant and toothpaste for ONE DAY is really not that bad.

Question: What is the hardest thing you have ever had to give up in your life?

Sleep is the hardest thing I've ever had to give up. I don't think I've slept well since my first baby was born 4 1/2 years ago! Good thing I slept a lot and enjoyed it during college and when I was single.

It isn't something I purposely gave up, but the hardest thing that I've had to do without would be running water. It's embarrassing to have to go your neighbor's house to get buckets of water to be able to wash or flush your toilet. Living without electricity is hard, but without water is the worst.

Wow! The food looks great and healthy too. Who says you can't lose weight and still enjoy food. Is that peanut butter on the pancakes?

Hardest thing for me:
Off the top of my head, giving up on Mac and Cheese all the time.

I just have to say that I'm a little jealous that you have such a great work environment and fun people to work with ;) Not to say that I don't like where I work but you have som much in common with them and seem to be friends even outside of work. You are truly lucky to have that.

Cute, my mom used to make us Mickey pancackes all the time.

The toughest thing I ever gave up was Diet Soda. I stopped drinking it for a year, and now I have started back again : / I need that discipline back.

That cake looks really good. I try not to think of eating healthily as giving up on certain foods, but it has been hard not to just eat dessert everytime I'm in the mood.
