Shrove Tuesday was a few weeks ago. We certainly are not religious (though we always LOVE pancake Tuesday) but I like the idea of giving something up, as a test of will or strength.
I’ve focussed a lot on my health and fitness lately, and I’m hoping to add to that. For ‘lent’ I’ve given up alcohol. I don’t drink copious amounts, but have a glass or two of wine a few nights a week and sometimes more on the weekend. The past few weeks have been tough at work and I got into the habit of looking forward to that glass (or several) at the start of the weekend, so I wanted to see if I could break that habit.
I’ve found the going easy so far, even going to a friends’ birthday party this weekend was simple…soft drink only.
I’d love to say that I’ve thrown myself into exercise as an alternative stress reliever, but I’d be lying! I did a fun run last weekend (more fun than run!) and have lost all exercise mojo since then 😕.
There’s just over a month to go until Easter and the alcohol-free road ahead looks pretty good at the moment. I’ll update you in another week or so and see if I’m still so chirpy!!
(It’d be a different story if I had decided to give up bread or cheese!! 😧😧😧)
