Day 24- The Hardest Break-up

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Don't worry guys! Me and the boyfriend are lovely, so the break up thankfully isn't with him. For the past 20 years (yes, since I was a baby) I have been in a serious, long term relationship with cheese...yes, cheese. Feta, cheddar, swiss, bleu, and all of the other delightful flavors. Today is Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent, and since I am Catholic I observe it, which means I need to pick a food or something I enjoy and give it up for 40 days until Easter. This year, I chose CHEESE.

This breaks my heart, but I know it's for the best, lol. Looking down at my last supper of a cheese quesadilla on a whole wheat tortilla, I was upset, but I did it. I broke up with cheese. It's just too high calorie and too salty and too everything that's not good for someone trying to lose a significant amount of weight.

If you're Catholic, what did you choose to give up for Lent this year?!

Hope everyone had a fabulous day!:)

    I am proud of you! I chose to give up pizza, which is a major cheese contributor to my life. I LOVE CHEESE. It is the reason I couldn't become vegan full time. If you need some support, let me know!

    Good for you!

    I couldn't think of anything giving up that would be hard enough to consider a sacrifice, so I'm going to make meditating a habit - which will be VERY hard for me!

    Good luck!
