I think most of you know what Lent is, but since I got some questions here is a Cliffsnotes version:
Lent is a (mostly Catholic) tradition of prayer, observance and fasting in the 40 days leading up to Easter. Today is Ash Wednesday, so Easter is 40 days from now. (Note: I just wrote “Eater” instead of “Easter” because I’m preoccupied with food.)
(This pic is me and my bff in third grade. I am big boned or she is tiny boned, pretty sure it’s the former.)
For the next 40 days (and nights) I am giving up sweets and diet soda. To me sweets are cookies, cake, candy and ice cream.
I ended up doing a slow 5 miler about 2 hours after breakfast. Yeah, my body prefers to run when it’s still asleep and it was rough.
Lunch was an egg salad sandwich.
Dessert was a finger of this new banana PB from the jar. It’s good.
