Mardi Gras was on Tuesday...
For some, it was a day of celebration. For others, it passed quietly without a second thought. For me... it was a day of last minute munchies before giving up junk food for Lent.
Now, before you jump to any conclusions... no I am not Catholic, nor overly religious. BUT... I like the idea of having a defined period of time in which it give up something. Especially something that I could probably do without. Like junkfood.
Junkfood? What exactly defines junkfood? For me it is a lot of things.... chips, cookies, candy, fries, cake, brownies, ice cream...etc. Which is a lot to try to give up. 40 days. It will either feel like an eternity, or I will start feeling fantastic without the added junk in my diet. I have a feeling it will be a little bit of both.
I want to keep this blog updated as to my progress, partially to keep myself on track but also to be accountable. Or something... :) Fingers crossed.
