What are you giving up?
February 12, 2013 2 Comments
I’ve participated in lent since I was a little girl, and even in college convinced even my non-believer and even Jewish pals to participate with me.
I think it’s a great excuse to really challenge your will power and recharge your New Years Resolutions, as well as the religious aspect, if you are down with that!
In past years, I’ve given up beer, cheese, “gossiping,” cake, snacking– some years great, some years I only made it to the weekend (like the year I gave up all sweets and ate an entire cookie cake come that very next Sunday.)
This year, instead of just giving something up (french fries, my favorite food on the planet, so favorite I named one of my teddy bears “french fry” when I was 5) I am also giving myself a goal. I vow to work out at least 15 minutes a day until Easter.
I’m not saying I have to run 15 minutes, or even do cardio, but I have to do something to get my blood flowing and energy boosted 15 minutes a day.
Happy Fat Tuesday, kids!
What are you willing to give up?
