I saw this the other day on a little photographic tour of London, and it made me chuckle. Sometimes we can take our selves way too seriously (especially in the clean eating state of mind). I am a major pie fan, I must admit – so it really made me laugh!
Things are going well, I changed position at work which has been such a good thing for me and could not have come at a better time. I’m loving the fresh start at a new work place with new people and new commute to work that I could actually walk (only 2 tube stops away)
Lent starts on Ash Wednesday. I’m a christian and I’m seriously thinking about going Pescetarian as I do most years. I feel it might jump start my clean eating and encourage me to experiment more with vegetables, fish and grains, but i said the same last year and I ended up substituting with cheese instead – d’oh… Having said that I believe i’m in a different place now compared to last year, and if I want to eat more grains I believe I really will.
Regardless of the meat/no meat question I’m thinking of using it as an excuse for a clean cut cold turkey of chocolate. I’m sure I won’t be the only one and it will be a good way to break the habit that I seemed to have fallen into this year, even though I don’t really have a “sweet” tooth.
I’m also giving up social networking for 40 days… the reason being quite personal. I find that I can get quite engrossed in other peoples lives which is unhealthy, and I would rather use the Lent period to focus on my own personal and spiritual needs. I am at a real cross roads in my life with regards to my health/happiness/career – and I always seem to complain that “there isn’t enough time in the day” but really I probably spend more time online then I care to admit. i will still continue to check in with my weightwatchers blog and goodphat – but twitter/facebook/pininterest will be off limits.
But like I said before, let us not take life too seriously! i’m not doing these things because i have to, but because i want to – I feel it might be helpful in my personal walk to a healthy mind, soul and body.
Are you giving up anything for Lent? What are your thoughts about social networking? What do you do to achieve inner balance?
