yeah I’ve been horrible at this…so basically I’ve kind of lost the whole momentum and motivation to do much in regards to exercise…I’m trying to eat healthily but that’s a struggle in and of itself.
BUT. Lent has been a good thing this year because I gave up a few things that have helped me:
1. eating out - this not only keeps me from excessively eating food that isn’s super good for me, but also helps out my wallet!
2. alcohol - don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely not an alcoholic, but I do usually have a drink or two on Fridays and Saturdays…so not doing this helps my calorie intake and wallet situation :)
3. Fusion Brew - this was an indirect sacrafice…I initially was abstaining due to my no eating out rule, but then realized that I could probably get away with it since chai and coffee probably doesn’t count as eating out…but I easily go to Fusion 3 or 4 times a week because they’re right under my apartment building. darn you, SAMI! so I have not had Fusion Brew since February….cutting many cals and money! :)
4. makeup - this has no impact on my health, but has helped me in my humility. I have allowed myself to use only one item of makeup (usually being concealer) because I usually do the whole concealer+bronzer+blush+eye shadow+mascara JUST for going to class! how dumb! so yeah. as much as I don’t really care for how it makes me look tired all the time, it’s been a good way to not focus on how I look.
how has your lent been going? it’s my favorite week of the year! FINALLY!
