Today marks a personal best.
It's the seventh day of Lent. Which means the seventh day without chocolate for me. First time I can remember going that long without chocolate. We are entering unchartered territory here folks.
Oddly, it hasn't been hard. I get a nightly craving from about 8-10 pm every night. The intensity of that craving seems to be related to how much other sweet stuff I have eaten that day. Less sweets definitely equals less craving. I might even be tempted to give up the refined sugar altogether for the next 41days.
I might as well. Due to our current life status, we have already given up television, our gym membership, our newspaper, and real butter. What's a little sugar on top of that? Maybe it will nicely balance out the lack of the gym membership in relation to my expanding waistline. There has to be a silver lining somewhere, right?
