I was raised Catholic, so for many years Ash Wednesday symbolized the beginning of Lent. Which meant the beginning of "no meat" Fridays as well as giving up something for 40 days. While I am no longer a practicing Catholic, my brother convinced to give up the following things for 40 days:
1. BAD fast food (ie fried foods, salty, carbs...the delicious stuff.)
3. Baked goods
So, obviously I started this yesterday. And what did one of my co-workers bring in? Some homemade baked goodies.
Plus it was crazy busy, with lots of call-ins. By the time the day was over, I would have punched someone for a candy bar. (Not literally. Well. Maybe half literally.)
My brother says by the end I will no longer crave these foods. We'll see, as these foods compromise a large majority of my diet.
I'm not doing this to lose weight. It's more like I want to prove to myself that I can stay away from crappy foods for 40 days.
