Sticking to diets, exercising regularly, being organised, remembering basic things (like really really basic things…my child’s lunch box for example), being professional at all times, keeping composed under stress without freaking out and general ‘Super Woman’ type behaviour has never been a strong point for me – I know I’m not alone with this, my weaknesses are normal….right?
So lets throw in a Christian Festival called Lent. I’m not massively religious, (I went to a Catholic School…of course I’m not), but thought I’d join in this year and renounce a luxury that would help both my health and ‘Spring Clean’ me, (apparently this is part of the whole Lent experience). So we’re 4 days into celebrations…I haven’t started yet!
Better late than never is what I say…so I’m sacrificing sugar…and wine! This is going to be hard, as I have one spoon of sugar for my first two coffees of the day, I sweeten my porridge and have half a spoon of sugar for each of my 4 other cups of tea for the rest of the day, and I’m renown for drinking wine…and lots of it!
I’ve posted this to the *cough* millions of blog followers…stop laughing – so that I can spur myself on and hopefully hear back from others who will also be enduring the Lent pain. So far I know of a friend who has quit chocolate, but taken up shortbread…another has stopped her white wine intake but not her red (!)…Please let me know if you are strong Lent Abstainers…we can do this…we can!! x
