Lent, Day 45: One Day Left…

Wow, I can’t wait until tomorrow!  I feel kind of silly about being THAT excited about the end of Lent, but still…   I think this is the first time I have ever ‘given up’ anything for Lent that had an actual impact on my daily-life the way this turned out to have, so I guess at the very least I feel I’ve done the thing right.   When I was younger it was always giving up things like ‘candy’ or ‘soda’, which in my case isn’t that much of a sacrifice.   I still boggle that I didn’t think giving up meat would be all that much of a sacrifice either; I was wrong about that.

Lent, Day 44: Good Friday

Almost there now.  I can almost smell the sausage cooking…

Good Friday has always been one of my favorite services of the year.   As a rule I’m not a very emotionally-affected person, so the fact that a church service actually depresses me is kind of novel and interesting.  I actually find that sort of nice.

But it seemed fitting that today was a Down Day, so I went in to our Good Friday service feeling subdued anyway.

Lent, Day 43: Maundy Thursday

I guess technically I broke my Vegetarian fast for Lent tonight, but this was sort of a planned thing.  Zion partnered with Apple of His Eye ministries to put on a Seder Meal for the church, which obviously involved eating lamb as part of the ritual.   I went in planning that I would participate, since the whole point of going vegetarian was as a form of religious observance, and that was also the point of tonight’s meal.

Lent, Day 42: Narrow Garage

Yet another reminder of the fact that losing weight also means losing actual size and girth.   Andy cleaned out the garage this past weekend, which meant a lot of the stuff that had been piled up on ‘my side’ (or at least, the side where we park the van, which is the car I usually drive) was moved out and disposed of.

Lent, Day 41: Goodbye Qs!

I meant to mention this earlier, because it came up while I was shopping last week… But tonight I was going through my closet again to weed out oversized clothes I knew I wouldn’t wear again, and in the process I was reminded of this.

Yeah, we’re revisiting this topic.  Feel free not to click the cut if you’d rather not know.  I understand. 🙂

Lent, Day 38: Jeans, Revisited

Technically, you know, Lent is over now.  As of today we switch to Holy Week, as today is Palm Sunday.  But the idea is to stay ‘fasting’ until Easter, so I have one more week until I can eat meat again.  Almost there.

Today’s topic is jeans.
