Each Monday, I write a Motivation Monday post, which is to help motivate me and you in terms of physical well-being, both diet and exercise. For 2011, I also am including a “no” and a “yes” to help motivate us toward being physically healthy.
No restaurants for rest of lent
I’ve already committed to performing simple acts of kindness for Lent, but now I thought I’d commit to something on the physical side. This one is pretty simple: no restaurants for the rest of Lent. That might not seem like such a big deal, but when you only can eat fish on Fridays and sometimes your wife is still working when you get home from work and you feel lazy, you just want to run to the local restaurant for its Friday fish fry. At least, I do and that’s what I did last Friday. However, I know with a little planning, I can do it as I can say…
Yes to home-cooked and homemade meals
Why I say “home-cooked” and “homemade” is because I’m not much of a cook, I’ll admit, but I can make myself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or a grilled cheese sandwich and a can of tomato soup. I also can throw a frozen pizza in the oven (oooooh). So I’ll cling to life and sustenance somehow, even if it’s by the skin of my teeth:
Do you eat out too much? What are you going to do about it? Anything? No? Well then fine, be that way.
