Ah Lent. I’m not Catholic, but I can jump on board with things that can make me a better person. So I participate in giving up something each year for Lent.
Last year was Chocolate – which I did a very good job of! I only craved it for about the first two weeks, and then I was fine. But I realized last year that just because I give up Chocolate doesn’t mean I am healthy. I was substituting it with a million other vices.
So this year I am going to give up Junk. My diet could be cleaner, it could be more focused on filling, healthy foods. So that is what I am going to do. I am going to focus on healthy, filling, clean food. Ice cream, fro-yo, popcorn, anything in a single serve package, etc. You get the idea.
- Diet cola (I can’t just give up everything)
- Beer (God wants me to be happy)
But everything in moderation, right? I figure cutting the crap out of my diet, and filling in the gaps with the good stuff will give me an overall fresh start.
Eating fish on Fridays, I can jump on that.
- Breakfast: 2 Eggs Scrambled, 3 strips of bacon, coffee w/ fat free half and half
- Snack: Banana
- Lunch: Big salad, yogurt, clementines, diet coke
- Snack: Apple
- Dinner: Med Salad
- Snack: er. Water?
Water intake: Goal of 100 oz
Because this is my “Wake Up Wednesday” I am pretty excited – everything is new, fresh, and clean. My past mistakes are not defining me, and I will be successful this go around.
