I noticed that I seem to be putting on weight, at least it seems that way to me. I’m more on the average size, especially in my hips, but finally this year I was able to fit into size 8 jeans for the first time. Recently, my size 8s are seeming a little tight. This could just be because I’m not swimming like I was in summer.
So I’ve decided to try and eat better and expand my diet to more healthy foods.
Today is Ash Wednesday, which is the start of Lent for us Catholics. If you’re Orthodox, however, you already got started on Clean Monday, the idea of which I like better. On Clean Monday, those of the Orthodox faiths will clean the house and fly kites, which I believe is synonomus with cleaning the soul, to get ready for the resurection. Meanwhile, us Latins are smearing dirt on our foreheads.
