Reminder. Today is Ash Wednesday. A day of fasting and abstinence. Fasting as in 2 small meals and 1 normal meal. Abstinence as in no meat.
For Lent, I am doing very similar to what I did last year. I am doing the 17 Day Diet (no sugar, pop, red meat, non-whole grain, etc). I wrote about it more in depth last year. I am also doing P90-X again.
Sadly, after the wedding, I never got back into the groove of being healthy, and I so miss the energy I had. Not to mention, I didn’t realize it until around Christmas, but I hadn’t had a migraine in a very long time and my headaches had pretty much gone away. I also wasn’t nearly as sick either. Clearly, it worked, and this time I intend to stay healthy. I won’t be one of those health nuts where I won’t even touch sugar (hopefully (I just want to be able to consume within moderation), but, I feel that I need to be much healthier.
Stay strong and vigilant this Lent. Offer something up, and stick to it. Don’t cheat. You can do it.
