In Response To: Goal Busters (Loni)
I did something that I think and hope will be helpful - I gave up wheat for Lent! I've read that it takes 21 days to establish a good habit, so I figure 40 really ought to be good. The downside is feeling that after 40 days it will be o.k. to eat it again. The upside is knowing that if I successfully abstain for 40 days my body will give me a way-over-the-top reaction if I try to eat it on Easter! And of course, the instant you give up anything for Lent you are immediately surrounded by it. At my Bible study, we had a birthday party - cake, cookies and donuts, of which I had nary a bite. Tonight, our church had a night out at the YMCA. Pie, donuts, cookies, homemade brownies, pretzels. I did eat some frosting from brownies, but nothing else (I mean as far as wheat goes). Did you ever notice how much dairy and sugar you eliminate from your diet when you give up wheat, since most desserts are made with wheat and dairy? I didn't get much exercise this week, though. I had some family crises going on and was unable to get more than 6 hours of sleep a night, and so didn't have enough time to exercise in the morning, though I'm trying to work it in daily in my routine, such as taking the stairs instead of the escalator ( and it does help!)
