Yesterday was Ash Wednesday. We know that because my husbands name is Ash and everyone wishes him a happy Ash Wednesday. They think its hilarious.
Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent. Last year I decided to give something up for Lent, I was so successful I have decided to give it another try.
I have thought long and hard about what to give up this year. I decided I would like to give up the extra 10lbs I am caring around, but something tells me that’s not how this works. So plan B) give up something that is causing the extra 10lbs. Last year it was soda, particularly caffeinated soda. It worked out wonderfully and I can now honestly say I don’t need soda in my life.
Unfortunately the only other thing I can think to give up is sugar, and I am really not excited about that prospect. Sugar isn’t a huge problem for me, but I can’t think of anything else and I do really enjoy something sweet now and then.
So I guess sugar it is, wish me luck.
