Being a vegetarian I was thrilled to pick up a copy of Skinny Bitch... about 5 months ago. The book goes where no other diet book has gone before; The Authors Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin lay it down as for as getting serious about what you put in your mouth.
The premise of the diet is vegan and it basically tells us what we already know, YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT. And lately... I've been not doing such a good job feeding my temple. You cannot be a goddess downing Ben & Jerry's and Doritos... not that that's what I eat, haha.
So anyways, back to Lent...
This year I am giving up all seafood, eggs and dairy for my already meat-less, pop-less diet. Oh, no fast food either... I know it's extreme, but I need to recondition this machine!
I am also doing some things... like using my gym membership at least 4 times a week. I already pay for it, might as well go. If I can't do it for myself, I'm gonna do it for Jesus.
Speaking of Jesus, those kind of sound a little selfish, so I also have decided while purging my diet, I will purge other things... like my closet that is ever so quickly exploding.
My goal is to:
1.) Go through all of my clothes, take what I can of designer brands to resale shops, and the rest I'm giving to my church and the Purple Heart.
2.) Find somewhere to donate my old desk top to; it works just fine, I just don't need it.
3.) Go through all of my tuberware tubs full of shit from college, etc. and if I'm not using it, I'm donating or tossing it.
By Easter I'll be thinner, more toned, refreshed, AND I'll feel good about myself and what I'm doing... oh, and I'll try to be on time to work.
I feel like I'm spring cleaning my body and my soul.
