Lenten Diet, 40 Days of Fitness

I gave up rice for lent this year. It isn't easy when you grow up in Iraq. We eat rice almost everyday. So, when I saw the following article by the Associated Press, I thought it was a better idea than giving up rice, coffee or chocolate:

BOCA RATON, Fla. — Instead of giving up the usual chocolate or coffee during the Lenten season, members of one Florida church are adding something _ exercise.

Advent Lutheran Church kicked off their six-week program "40 Days of Fitness" on March 1 to encourage members to get moving. The program offers free Saturday morning workouts, along with volleyball, yoga and cycling classes during the week.


That's actually much harder than it looks.
