So, yesterday started Lent.. For those of you that aren't Catholic, it is a 40 day period from Ash Wednesday to Easter that most people traditionally give up something they can't live without. Not to say that I am a good Catholic, but I figured this year I would use it to my advantage.
So, yesterday I embarked on my 40 day journey to no longer bite my nails (huuuuge bad habit), no more drinking (not even happy hours or wine) and staying in my calorie range (as best that I could).
This past week I had a long weekend off from school and I totally slipped up, got extremly lazy and didn't track any of the crap I ate. Don't you hate when that happens? LOL. I do.
And I don't want it to happen anymore. So hopefully this "Lent Challenge" that I am doing will help. I need to decrease my sugar intake, I am finding myself eating sweet cereals and bars that really don't benefit my nutrional need. I need to cut that out of my diet so I can start seeing some results for the spring.
No more excuses! I am going to do this.
Have a great week, Sparkies! xoxo
