The Lenten season began last week with Ash Wednesday marking the beginning of the season of Jesus and His journey to the cross.
In the Christian faith (and perhaps others) it is tradional to “give up” something as our sacrifice to walk this Lenten path.
My Lenten Journey is patterned after my “word” for this year “CLEAN.”
Many areas of “clean” are in my journey; Body, Mind, Spirit and Home. Some are deeply personal and others I wish to shout from the mountain top.
As an athlete, I always strive to exceed my personal best. Last Friday, I began working with Dina Griffin MS, RD, CSSD sports dietitian extraordinaire. She is walking (running?) this journey with me as my guide to becoming more metabolically efficient!
My mountain top shout is not only about the foods I need to “give up” to become more metabolically efficient, but the foods that will best support my desire to swim, bike and run faster, further and better!
For the specifics of this plan, please see my blog on Nourishing Athletes. On this blog, Nourish Your Life, I will be pondering the “journey” aspect of it.
