May is traditionally the month of Mary. While trying to think of ways to honor our Heavenly Queen during this time, I decided that I'd try to use some of my efforts to health and fitness as a way of mortifying myself for her.
I'm really trying to cut out on those thoughtless little nibbles I have throughout the day... the little tastes that you don't track, but that add up all the same, and often sabotage your efforts. I'm going to try to turn this into a little service to offer up to Mary.
So instead of taking a little taste of that cookie that's lying around, or a couple pieces of the chocolate out on the table, I'm going to offer up the lack of them in honor of the Blessed Virgin, and say a Hail Mary instead.
Does anyone want to join me in making weight loss efforts this month spiritually beneficial as well, as a means of honoring our Blessed Mother?
