If I didn't see people with ash spots on their forehead, I would have still suspected...
For some weird reason, I start craving fish on Fridays during Lent - even when I don't know it's Lent.
I guess that I was a practicing Catholic for long enough that the traditions of Lent are ingrained in me, even though I no longer practice Catholicism.
Weird, I know.
Last year, I gave up Facebook for Lent.
I could do that again, but since Pip Squeak (my new grandson) is going to make an appearance during Lent, I don't think that would be a give up that I would be able to keep.
I know there are a lot of things that I could give up...
Some I probably should give up, but I am not in a good space to give up stuff like Chocolate and Caffeine or even tasty foods.
I thought about giving up my two games that I play on the phone, but that would eliminate a primary reduction of stress in my life. Not a good choice.
So, I thought about things that I could do to improve my life.
I could try to blog everyday, but does that really improve anything?
Perhaps it would help with my mental state, but it just doesn't feel right specifically for Lent.
I even talked to MBB about exercise or trying to get back to 10K of steps a day.
Then I look at the weather forecast and realize that it isn't quite the right time for my lunch walks to return.
Honestly, I am not going to be successful without them. And looking at my travel schedule - for work and personal - I just don't see how an exercise program is going to become a habit over the next 40 days.
Anyone got any suggestions?
I know that I am already late in starting, but I have no problem going a few days past Easter.
I should admit that I don't follow all of the Lent traditions.
As much as I crave fish, I had meat for all three meals today.

I think we both agree that I need to combine the cake from this recipe with the icing of the Apple Streusel Cupcakes (posted yesterday).

I love my Galaxy 3 smart phone.
Absolutely Love it. Great pictures. And video.
But, it sucks for blogging and long emails / texts. Especially since the last upgrade.
I'm sitting at a pool tournament where spectator seating sucks. I can't ready watch MBB shoot, I already finished my book, and the auto-correct is driving me insane.
What's up with the random caps?
I should be making one of my huge To Do lists, But (leaving that wEird cap. That one too) can't seem to find the energy. Maybe that cup of coffee I just had will kick in soon.
I usually just save these posts and publish them later when I can get on the computer and make them look better, but that's not going to happen this time. Lol

I know what the cause is, but the only "fix" is time.
Patient, I am not.
I did decide to change the look of the blog page.
Was getting tired of the maroon swirls.
Not sure if the dark gray is any better - kinda monotone and color-less.
Hey, fits my mood today.
I did have some yummy, left-over potato soup.
My fitness pal doesn't like it so much - gotta work on reducing the calories while keeping the taste.
Have I mentioned that I was successful on that challenge with the peanut butter pie.
I haven't documented that one yet, because I may be able to squeak out a few more calories.
Stay tuned on the results of that one.
I made a good dent on the 12 books for 2014, but fell off a bit on the practicing of pool.
I'll get back to that one.
I did get to 10,000 steps five times in the last week and a half. Now to get back to that daily. I am doing better with tracking the calories, hoping that leads toward less calories being tracked.
I'll be so happy when mother nature allows me to walk outside at lunch again.
Don't know that this blog post had any rhyme or reason other than I was at my laptop and could type a bit.
That needs to be priority as well.
