What I Gave Up for Lent

Lent was yesterday, did you know that? Alright, so I'm not Catholic. However, I do give something up for Lent every year.  I usually give up pop, but I don't really drink it that much any more. This year I am going a little different route.

This year, I am giving up sweets. I do have a sweet tooth, and just about every weekend my grandma makes something sweet. Now, perhaps I do bend the rules a little bit. To me, a frappe is not a sweet. It is a beverage. Also, I do not count muffins as sweets, they are breakfast foods. Do you agree with me on these?

Another thing I am giving up for Lent is second helpings. Listen, when I am done with my plate of food 95% of the time I will go back for seconds. Not because I am hungry, but because the food was good. That only adds extra calories, extra weight, and I end up full and sick to my stomach. NO MORE! I hope that after Lent is over I can continue this habit and say that I lost some weight in the process.

I usually struggle the first week, then I'm good to go. I will let you know how I did at the end of Lent!

What are you giving up for Lent? Leave me a comment, I'd love to know!

P.S. Is it me or is Lent actually 46 days this year? Math is not my strong subject, so there is a good possibility that I counted wrong. Haha!
