Almost a former blogger

Still rambling about running. Sometimes other things.

If it ain't broke, don't eat it

I thought about a long drawn-out post about ending my pescetarian way of eating, but there really isn't much to say. After hitting and exceeding my goal of eating no meat except fish in February, I broke down and had steak on Sunday. While it was good, I didn't miss it. Then today I had lunch with my wife and son at Chick-fil-A. While tasty -- who doesn't LOVE Chick-fil-A? -- it hasn't settled well with me this afternoon. So with the start of Lent tomorrow, I thought it would be good to recommit myself to a diet that was working just fine and opening the doors to trying out a lot of new things. I can easily do this again for 40 days. While I've never really given up anything for Lent, there's no time like now to start.

No matter what your religion, 40 days is an excellent chance for you to give up something and make a difference in your life. Give up that daily soft drink or weekly ice cream or Facebook or complaining. While giving up something, start something new -- walk an extra 5 minutes or do push-ups twice a week or say something nice once a day to someone else.
