I decided to give up sweets for Lent.
Today, marks 2 weeks into this journey.
To be more specific I mean junk food. No cookies, candy, cake and the like. In addition, I’m giving up on sweet tea. Let me tell y’all. Sweet tea is my achilles heel. If I can have it infused into my blood stream, I would have done it a long time ago. Chick-Fil-A, McDonald’s, Gold Peak, Arizona, now Snapple…..I’m telling you man. I get real crackheadish around it.
“It be calling me man”
“I like getting high…”
It’s actually been a few years since I’ve given up anything for Lent. Not that I’m a heathen but I couldn’t really think of anything. Yeah I could have done something like chocolate but that’s not hard for me and wouldn’t have been a real sacrifice. Plus I believe you have to be “there” mentally. I wouldn’t have been able to last. But this year, I really wanted to test myself, not just for Lent, but for 2012 in general (we’ll talk about that in another entry). Mentally, I’m ready.
In conjunction with that, I’ve increased my physical activity. Wifey can’t keep up! That’s a joke. Ha Ha. I’m playing. I couldn’t give up everything sweet! Ha! Get it! I’m here all night folks!
So yeah, like I was saying, 2 weeks down. 4.5 weeks left. (typing that out makes it seem like an eternity)
And to make matters worse (or tougher), look what was in the house this past weekend:
Jesus be a fence!
