Today is Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent. Lent is 40 days from Easter.
My whole family has decided that we’re all going to give up junk food for Lent. (cookies, chips, popcorn etc)
Plus some of us are giving up meat and their Ipods too.
It’s been a few months that we have gotten into a bad habit of opening a bag of munchies while watching tv after dinner. We only use to have chips etc on Saturday night since that was our movie night.
So now that everyone is on board it’ll be easier for me to stick to my diet.
What are you giving up for Lent?
Just a quick note to wish you all a Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!! Hope you are all enjoying your time off and spending quality time with your family and friends.
Remember the holidays are not a free for all, so stick to your guns and have some self control when the tempting foods are in front of you. Now I’m not saying don’t indulge, far from it, have your treat but know your limit, then walk away from the table. You didn’t work so hard this year so that you can pack on 10 lbs in the last few days of 2011.
Let’s start 2012 lighter so we won’t be starting the year with yet another new years resolution.
Let’s say good bye to 2011 and hello 2012, let’s start the New Year with a bang!
What’s on your menu for your Low Carb holidays?
