Actually, there are two reasons for the title of this post –>
1 ~ 40 days of Lent starts today
2 ~ 40 Days – Progress Pictures
Other than those two quick topics, this will be a fairly generic post. I am not much in the mood for sharing feelings and such.
I am back & forth about what I should sacrifice or “add” for Lent. Last year I gave up Diet Mountain Dew for 40 Days. I succeeded, but I remember it being very difficult – Nowadays, that might not even be a very great sacrifice, because I do not drink them often enough (Thank U Shakeology!!)
^ Maybe I should do this one?
I decided that I am going to give up eating between meals on the weekdays. This will be so tough for me because I am now used to having a small snack after school and before working out with Ben.
I am actually worried about failing and not making it through the entire 40 Days – But that is not the right attitude to start off Lent.
I almost decided against this, but then Ben said, “Well it is supposed to be a challenge, right? It’s a sacrifice.” I can definitely do this. And I have also “added” something positive ~ it is a religious addition and no need for me to go into detail on this post…
And of course dinner included no meat tonight – which is really no big deal, because it is hardly a part of my diet as it is –>
^ Eggbeaters whole wheat wrap, with Laughing Cow cheese, and salsa, & additional Eggbeaters and peas on the side = Yum
And now, 40 Days of Progress ~
The picture below kind of expresses how I am feeling about all of this right now, after my first 40 Days –>
^ Yes, definitely…
I feel like I am perhaps in the middle of that big knotty success mess right now. But as I always say – Slowly but surely.
