IF you celebrate Lent, then what will it be? We do, so every year, I try something harder.
I've been thinking of this for a few weeks now and trying to decide what I will go without for the weeks of Lent season. I've come to a conclusion.....
Now, as some of you know, this will be quite a task!!! I love my adult juice! A LOT!!! So, I figured this would be a true testiment to my faith and willingness to do without. I have done chocolate, caffiene, all sweets, fast food, etc in the past. I've also done things such as not biting my nails or not cussing! Well, all of those were just fine, but none have been as hard to get through as I imagine this time will be. I'm starting to sound like an alcoholic! Well, it will be difficult. I love a cold beer out with friends or a glass of wine and a bath to wind down, so I guess we'll see!
The other component I'm adding in, is to committ to exercising 5 times a week. I'm on a good schedule now at 3-4, but would like to intensify it if I can manage.
It starts on the 25th (Ash Wendnesday) and goes through Easter!!! I pray I can make it!
