Lent Ideas

Sorry for the late post today.  Just to give you an idea of how my day is going - after I finally got Ina Mae to stop crying so that I could run, all the smoke alarms in my house started going off.  Lovely.

After a frantic phone call to my dad, who reassured me that my baby didn't have carbon monoxide poisoning and instructed me to re-set the breaker, all was well.

As today is Fat Tuesday, I am really picking my brain trying to think of something to give up for Lent.  Last year I didn't give anything up, instead I added something - a green item in every meal.  Although it was great for my diet and nutrition, it really defeated the purpose of Lent - to give something up.

Here are a few ideas of things to give up:

  • Dessert
  • Processed foods
  • Alcohol
  • TV
  • Facebook (would I survive?)

Any other ideas?


Breakfast - kale and cheddar omelet with everything toast

Lunch - salad and chicken breast sandwhich

Dinner - chicken tamale bake following *this recipe* with beans and more salad

Another 3 miles while watching Glee.

Thought for the day


  1. Hey Racheal are you still sticking with Weight Watchers? I will have to try the chicken tamale bake for sure.

  2. You are rocking girl... and I never thought about people giving FB up for lent. I think that's a great, challenging idea!
