So Lent began yesterday – a time of self sacrifice for God over appoximately 40 days, traditionally 5 Sundays I believe.
And I’m gonna be completely up front and say that I am, in fact, an Atheist.
(So I may very well be inccurate in that last sentence, even though I went to a convent school. But that’s another story altogether…)
Now before you shun me for having no soul and no faith, I do believe in self-sacrifice for something worthwhile.
And since everyone else is doing it, I guess it’s a good opportunity to
be a sheep try and make the effort and hopefully not be alone in this ‘giving something up’ scenario.
A big challenge for me with this run will be a change of diet. I’m aware that I will not have to starve myself, in fact, far from it.
However, I’m a big snacker and won’t often say no to a full pack of Choccy Hobnobs (or any chocolate biccy for that matter).
And I do love my Wine. And I love love love my Southern Comfort.
So for this month at the very least, whilst I’m trying to get my stamina up (before starting the 6 month training schedule at the beginning of April) I’m going to try and give up booze and biscuits. Or at the very least cut down.
How hard can it be?
