All fast food restaurants, including chipotle, subway and pizza places. Also giving up specialty coffees. I love a good chai or mocha post long run but I’m stick to plain coffee for the rest of Lent.
I always give up something food related for Lent because it is something that I enjoy. I would give up TV, Internet or shopping but with work I need TV and Internet. If I could give up work for Lent, that would be awesome! I’m planning a wedding and have baby showers to attend so I can’t cut out shopping. Plus I really don’t shop that much and get maybe an hour of TV time in a day anyways.
I know people make the argument that you shouldn’t give up something for Lent to help your diet but I disagree. I think you should give up something that you enjoy. Something that makes your life a little more difficult, to keep reminding you why you gave it up. I enjoy fast food or chipotle after a long run because it’s delicious and easy to grab. But I’m cutting it out and making a sacrifice to not have it for the next 40 (or so days).
Sidenote: I’ve only had fast food once this entire year and it was Chipotle.
This is a little better than last year when I gave up everything. Now I have an
unhealthy obsession with marshmallows. Ever since last year, I can’t stop eating them.
