(If you've read my blog long enough you know who that is).
But really, other than that I'm not feeling like doing a whole lot. Even though I have a whole lot to do. I hope I'm not getting sick. I'm hoping that it's just a case of the lazys.
In other news, I've decided what I'm giving up for Lent. Last year it was Jolly Ranchers. And funny how I've haven't craved one since.
This year I'm taking a huge leap. NO SWEETS.
But it's something I've battled with for years, but at the same time it's the first Lenten season in a long time that I feel ready to take on this spiritual challenge. To most it might be "oh, so what, no ice cream?" but to me it's much bigger than that. It's a time to sit back and reflect on why I do the things that I do to my body. This body was designed just for me, that I should respect much more than I currently do. I'm ready and capable of taking such a huge leap.
Because I am totally and 100% addicted to anything sweet. I mean really. If you covered brussel sprouts in chocolate, I'm sure I'd love them. Candy flavored grass trimmings? I'm in. But, its also something I've totally hated about myself. I always wanted to be one of those peeps that when offered a big slice of carrott cake would say "nah, I'm not much of a sweets eater."
Well, I've proved that I have endurance. I quit smoking. I have run a marathon. I have overcome many odds that people had against me. I've beat them all. So, why not be one of those "nah, I'm not into sweets" kindof girls. (Its gotten so bad that Troy often says I have another pocket in my stomach reserved purely for sweets.)
Now, will I gorge out on banana pudding, Hershey's kisses, brownies, Heath bar blizzards, chocolate cake, York peppermint patties, bubble gum, Lifesavers, jelly beans, caramels, chocolate chip cookies, cheesecake, or oh my gosh Marble Slab ice cream on Shrove Tuesday? Probably not. But on Tuesday evening, somewhere in Moreno Valley, you may find me staking out a local Target for one last candy bar crying "farewell my little friends...farewell..."
