Being a good Catholic girl!!

Postby Sassygirl » Wed Feb 21, 2007 10:16 am

Today marks the beginning of the Lenten Season (which basically means that there is 40 days until Easter). It is Ash Wednesday and as my children go to a Catholic school, they are encouraged to "give up" something that they really love for those 40 days and I have decided to join them. So as of today, I will not have any chocolate, cakes, biscuits or lollies for the duration of Lent. Wish us luck :D

40 days is a long time to give up the goodies. Be strong and all the best. You will lose a lot of weight if you can stick to that.

I had a friend in Perth who used to give up ice-cream for lent as she really loved her ice-cream. That always stuck in my head for some reason.

Giving up chocolate, cakes, bikkies and lollies will not only be good for you physically but spiritually as well.

Best of luck. :D

Oh no! I forgot all about it... ate a little bit of steak tonight for dinner. And does this mean I missed out on pancakes yesterday? :cry:

Yep you sure did. It was "Shrove Tuesday" or Pancake Tuesday as it is commonly known as. And yes I had my pancakes - with lemon and sugar (um marrrrrr). Stuck to fish for dinner last night - and had absolutely NO CHOCOLATE!!! :D

Good going Sassy :!:

I've given up biscuits for lent - They keep calling me from the cupboard. I think that I might need earplugs before Easter arrives.
