One thing that I am adamant about is NOT setting myself up for failure. When I choose a goal or challenge, it is natural for me to be gung ho about the situation. If I fail at the goal, I usually make modifications or plan smarter when I revisit said goal. Sometimes this takes weeks, months, or even years. In a future blog post, I may tell you about the first time how I was gung ho to train for a half marathon and quit because of my hair. YEAH I SAID IT, HAIR. A year later, after proper planning (to include cutting my hair off) not only, did I race my first half marathon, but I went on to complete my first full marathon.
With that said, I am modifying my lent goal it to allow decaffeinated coffee. Bear in mind, I am not necessarily participating in lent for religious purposes. I wasn’t raised Catholic, so I don’t know a lot of the details outside of the bible verse that Jesus fasted for 40 days. I am using this time period to challenge myself health wise. How has your lent period been going thus far? I understand if you opt to keep the answer to yourself.
