Yesterday Ben and I were talking about Lent. (Ash Wednesday is a week from tomorrow.) I mentioned giving up sweets. Ben doesn’t observe Lent because he’s not down with the Pope.
But even though Ben doesn’t observe Lent, he was super on board with giving up sweets! Random, I know. But, not that random because he has been complaining that I have turned his “meat tooth” into a “sweet tooth”.
My influence has him addicted to sugar and he wants off the hard stuff. So, he decided to stop eating sweets immediately. This will actually make it easier for me, so I’m going to start weaning myself off the stuff tomorrow and also give up cussing for Lent (this is going to be a rough 40 days).
Since this commitment didn’t begin until dinner, I’m saying my Vitatop and Yogurt snack with copious amounts of pumpkin butter is okay.
This afternoon I went to meet up for the group run and ended up super late and tried to catch up with everyone before turning around with the beginner group. Oh well.
You run some, you lose some.
