40 days of Lent

Well happy Mardi Gras! Today it is traditional to eat pancakes, because in ye olden times, people would eat pancakes to prepare for Lent to get rid of their dairy products, since we can't eat them while fasting.

Also can't eat meat.

Or during the day.

So basically, for the next forty days, I will be observing Lent by giving up food during daylight hours, meat, and alcohol. Sound strange? It is. But I want to give this a try. Maybe it will help me to appreciate life a little more.

Also, I'm giving up one other thing:

Complaining about my weight. So for 40 days, I will do my damndest not to do any of these things. Eeee.
