Religiously speaking, I’m not much of anything, and I’m definitely not Catholic. However, since my parents raised me (relatively) well, I know some about all kinds of religious holidays. Generally, I don’t observe any (by observe I just mean watch, perceive, notice, not to show regard for), except for the ones that get me free days from university.
Generally, my family only ‘celebrates’ Easter and Christmas with some really, really good food. However, this year I’m also doing Lent, my way.
In August of last year, I went to see a dietician, because I needed new eating habits, for my health as well as my weight. For a few weeks I was very vigilant about the diet, and it worked well. Then obviously, came Christmas, and it went out the window, because I love food.
Ever since Christmas I’ve been having trouble getting back into the groove. This is where Lent comes in. A few weeks ago Caitlin, said something on her facebook page about it, and that got me thinking.
Lent is a fixed period of time, with an end date, and a reward at the end, in the form of loads of Easter Eggs, chocolate or otherwise.
So, I’ve decided to stick to my diet for Lent, which is going well so far, but I’m sure it will be somewhat of a challenge!
