I'm happy to report another loss this week!
Total since 1/5/13: 18.3
I'm just a week away from hitting my first big goal.
Today is the start of Lent. Now, I am nowhere near a good Catholic but I do participate in giving up something for Lent and we don't eat meat on Friday's during this time.
What am I giving up? For starters, the drive-thru. My drive-thru adventures are usually on the healthier side of things but I could always choose something even healthier (apple and water) and my wallet will be happier. I wanted to give up eating out all together but we'll be taking hubs' parents out to dinner on Saturday, so there.goes.that.
I'm also giving up junk food. We've had a lot in the house over the last week or so with all the snow and "need" for comfort food. I really pushed the limit with all that I took in and know that I would continue to push it if I don't call it "off limits". In this instance, I'm clearly OK with saying something is "off limits" because I'm giving it up for God. It's only 40 days. I can handle it.
Do you participate in Lent? What are you giving up? And if not, do you have any other traditions that you participate in? I would love to hear about them.
