Blogger Filler Content: Pictures of Food (and a Brief Detour to Religion)

Did you enjoy Fat Tuesday? I sure did.

Paczkis eaten: 1.5 (I had half of each flavor – chocolate, custard and strawberry/buttercream)
Miles swam last night: 1 (32 laps)

Now that it’s Lent, I’m trying to decide what I’m going to give up. I’m not a practicing Catholic anymore, but I like using Lent as a time for sacrifice and reflection. I’ll probably do the standard “no sweets and junk food” which is a huge sacrifice for me, especially since I bought a big bag of sour grapefruit slices the other day.

I debated giving up signing up for races but I don’t want to set myself up for failure. That would be a much harder sacrifice. Although I’m already signed up for three races during Lent, and any other races I’m considering are after Lent. So if they don’t sell out by Easter, I can still sign up. If they do, well, it’s not like there aren’t other races. So this would just prevent me from signing up for spontaneous races during a time when I really shouldn’t be doing additional races.

This is why Catholicism cracks me up. We rationalize our way out of or around what we’re supposed to stand for. Is it really a sacrifice, or is it just an excuse to be healthier and save money? Things I should be doing anyway.

My “religion” of choice (Just Be Good For Goodness Sake) is much less complicated. Although I saw this on Pinterest, and I love it as well:

Moving on … this post was supposed to be superficial and primarily about food, as a means to poke fun at the bloggers who only post pictures of their food yet have hundreds of followers … I fail at even that.

There is a Chipotle across the street from my office. This is dangerous. I am trying really hard to not go there everyday for lunch.

Hey! A picture of my food! And it resembles a salad! I must be a healthy living blogger! Now let me go into great detail about it:

Normally I get a Burrito Bowl from Chipotle with the following: a little bit of brown rice, black beans, veggies (peppers/onions), chicken, three salsas (tomato, corn and medium), cheese and lettuce. The other day I decided to be “adventurous” and try something other than chicken, so I got the barbacoa.  

Just writing that out … now I know what I’m having for lunch … again … I’ll try the carnitas and maybe report back to you if I’m still tapped out on blog content.
