There are about two weeks left in Lent. It has been a bit rough at times because I gave up some major vices for Lent. That list includes sweets (i.e. candy, soda, ice cream etc.), fried foods (I love buffalo strips, especially with honey mustard), and pizza (which I have tons of access to on an almost daily basis). In general, part of the reason for giving up those specific things is 1) I'm trying to get leaner, 2) in a few days there is an event at which I will attempt to run 3.2 miles which is a lot for me and 3) diabetes runs in my family so avoiding sugar and obesity now voluntarily is far better than doing so with my life on the line.
That said, I am almost literally counting down the days until Easter so I can indulge in the stuff that I have been without for the past few weeks. Seriously, when the clock strikes midnight, game on.
