Hey Hey. I know I’m not Catholic (never have been), but back in college, my roommates and I decided to give up sugar for Lent. I think we did it for two or three years. We had little rules, like Robin’s birthday we could take of and such. Well, turns out Robin still does it, and I’m going to do it this year, too. I’m sick of my will-power-less self stuffing food into my mouth, even when I’m supposed to be on a diet. So, I’m not doing this for religious reasons, but to prove to myself that I can control what I eat, and to be healthier.
So, sorry, family, but there will be no more sugary cakes/cookies/goodies made in this house for the next 40 days.
I echo Tina’s thoughts–thank goodness for splenda, diet dr. Pepper, vanilla diet coke, and sugar free pudding. I’d like to think I could do it without any such treats at all, but I know that’s not going to happen.
So, if you’ll excuse me, I think I’ll go and finish off the ice cream filled cake (thanks, Mel, for the cool pan! It turned out great except I don’t think I packed the ice cream in there tight enough as there were some air bubbles) and eat any chocolate I can find TODAY so they won’t be there for me tomorrow. Wish me luck, and send encouragement, and understand that I may be a little bit grumpy from now on.
