So, today is Fat Tuesday and I'm going to keep this short and sweet.
No day, no party, no celebration, no cookout, no vacation, no day off, no night out, no picnic, no wedding, no shower.....
THERE IS NO DAY THAT SHOULD EVER BE A DAY DESIGNATED TO BEING CARELESS.
Remember, you owe yourself more than to lose any self-control. If you want to celebrate today, treat yourself to something indulgent like a massage, a manicure, or a great piece of out of season fruit that is highly overpriced. You will appreciate that guava so much more than the regret you will feel eating that stupid jelly donut.
Life is about choices. Should you partake in the next 40 days of self-sacrifice, show yourself that you dont have to dive off the bandwagon just to get right back on. What a stupid, stupid idea.....
Don't use Lent as an excuse to give up a bad habit, use it as a motivation to be a better you. 30 days builds a new habit, 40 proves to you it sticks.
Be kind to yourself. Be stronger than the temptations today. There is no Fat Tuesday, only FIT Tuesday. Remember that :)
Peace and love!
