Lenten ruminations...

Sunday, April 24, 2011

The reason I practise so many Lenten disciplines, is just because I've been doing it for a long, long time... it started with just one or two things. And I don't suggest that everyone should be doing this. I just like to do it because it reminds me of what Jesus went through, what others have to go through in other countries, reminds me to pray, etc. etc. I thrive on demonstration lessons! :)

So how did I do this year... well, over 7 weeks I only lost 3 pounds, so it certainly wasn't for losing weight. However, I'm still glad for those 3 lost--slow but sure gets the job done, and all that.

Really, all the physical things I had no problem with. I'm looking forward to having toast for breakfast again, for sure, and something other than peanut butter & toast for lunch. Which is why it'll be a good thing to get back to the SP Nutrition tab, which lets me fit in as much "sin" as possible, and still lose weight, lol!

I also had no problem giving up Lexulous for Lent. It'll be fun to play it again, after that huge break! But as for the Facebook tab... I suppose part of the problem is that I was allowing myself *some* Facebook, and it was hard to draw the line in the proper spot. Plus, my niece has the cutest year-old twins, and post photos as much as she can--I couldn't possibly miss those! But wouldn't you know it, she actually didn't post any, for most of Lent (her computer wasn't working).

Anyway, I want to try and continue to have LESS Facebook, and post here more. Even though I kept finding excuses to check, I think it helps to just not keep the tab open.

Now to organize the exercising... the 7-day Bookcamp was great, but I have to find a way to include the new Wii that we got for Christmas!
