Was it a healthy one or a big fat full of sugar one??
I have to say I didn't have one this year, healthy or otherwise but I came home from classes on Tuesday to find Jamie and Jessica had devoured four each so they made up for me!
So now we find ourselves into Lent, giving something up for 40 days.
Does that appeal to you? Have you given something up this year?
In our house we had the conversation and Jamie has given up sweets, Jessica categorically said she does not want to give anything up and I am struggling this year to find something too give up!
I know that makes me sound like a saint and I am far from that I promise, but as you all know I gave up sugar and chocolate etc some time ago now, which was my usual thing to pick for lent.
These days I allow myself a treat once a week in line with my diet plan and to be honest if I gave that up I think I would be pretty miserable as I look forward to it so much.
Someone suggested wine but again I only have a drink once a week now and you have to have something to look forward to, am I right?
I don't eat bread anymore which is another favourite that people give up, so I was a bit stuck!
Then on Facebook one of my clients said she was going to give up complaining and so I thought, theres an idea, it doesn't have to be food related, I could give up something else.
Now my husband and daughter would probably like me to give up my phone and Facebook but I could never do that!!!!!
So I am going to give up stressing about little unimportant things, I am terrible at worrying about small things that really don't matter in the big scheme of things, so that is my decision, for the next 40 days and lets hope it carries on, I am not going to worry about all the little things in life.
I have decided that when I find myself going off down a train of thought about something silly (the kind of things I stress about are the dishwasher not being emptied or the bed not being made within an hour of getting up) I will count to 10, tell myself it really doesn't matter and think of all the positive things I have achieved that day.
I will let you know how I get on!
So please hit reply and share with me what you have given up for Lent?
