Giving up for lent...


This is the time of year everyone stuffs themselves with pancakes and break room discussion turns to how you're going to punish yourself for it for the next 40 days and nights. I have never really bought into it, mainly because I think if you want to give something up just use it- don't wait for an excuse.

But, this year is a year of breaking habits. Im proud of how well I have done with my new years blogalutions and how I'm doing on this blog. I'm trying so hard to lose weight and get fit so I'm feeling like this is the year I can achieve things. This brings me to...

1). Giving up chocolate for lent- when trying to get control of my weight this is the one thing I can't seem to kick. I know loads of people do this, but this will make such a difference to me.

As you may have read in an earlier posts I started a new job at the start of this year and have been over enjoying the new novelty of a salary. I love shopping always have but have been ridiculous in the last month. It's been fun, of course it has but it has but it has to stop.

2). Two month shopping ban! It will be tricky especially with my new found love of high end makeup but starting 17th March not a single possession will be bought. Only food and basic toilettries (as long as I have used up all that I own) are allowed. I thought about including socialising but I have a second job evenings and weekends so thats not a huge issue at the moment.

So there it is! Are you giving up anything for lent? Hopefully we can encourage each other!

  1. Good luck with it! I never even try and give something up, I know I'd be setting myself up to fail.
