I almost forgot that today was the first day of Lent until checking my blog stats yesterday.
Thank you, random searchers for reminding me. (And Trebek, I’ll take “Distances crazy people run for” for $800 for the “what’s 20 miles.”)
Last year, I gave up Sweet & Low in my coffee for Lent–I actually ended up never adding it back in and still just do milk or cream in my coffee. This year, I’m in the same boat. I’m generally happy with my diet. I’m trying to refine it a bit more to tone up my stomach, but I’m not in the position to make any big dietary changes again, so I’m not going to cut out anything big.
I’ve heard of the idea of adding something in–which sounds like an awesome idea–but once again, I’m going to cut out something small, but that I love.
They are absolutely one of my favorite indulgences, and I get them basically any time I’m at some sort of casual restaurant where they’re on the menu. They are one of those indulgences that always make me happy at the time but usually bother my stomach later.
And I’m gonna miss ’em for the next 39 days.
Mom? French fries at Easter dinner?
Do you give things up for Lent? Are you giving anything up this year?
