{Lent} Week 2

So lent has been going really well and tomorrow marks two weeks since my last bit of chocolate.

I haven't been doing as well with the exercise, though I walk around so much as work and uni that I feel that it equates to 30 minutes a day.

The thing with lent and giving up chocolate is that it's not as hard as I expect it to be.

I'm not trying to sound like a saint or anything but it's been really good not eating chocolate, almost like opening my mind to other foods and snacks in the world.

I am a creature of habit and tend to just grab and eat the same old thing everyday because it's easier.

It's forcing me to open up my mind to new foods which is great.

As for the running, well, I ran last wednesday when I had a day free, but I have honestly not had a free couple hours to go running and recuperate, usually I use that as an excuse, but between uni, 21st, and working, I've been finding it quite hard to fit one in, and sure enough if  I do I'm too tired to run.

Like right now I got home from uni at 2pm and have working starting at 4 in 45 minutes.

I will run this wednesday though, maybe try and keep wednesdays open for running.

Hope you lenten plans are going well!

God bless!!


  1. You know I've never done anything for lent before in all my years as a Christian. I've done 40 hour famine but the 40 days before Easter has never been something that I've done. I'm glad to hear you've been going well with yours. I couldn't do chocolate at the moment while being pregnant! Maybe next Easter!

    1. I never did it as a teenager, but I tried, and the last few years has been great to see myself pleasantly surprised at the ability God gives me to survive 40 days without soft drink or chocolate. It also makes me think more about God on a daily basis when I'm thinking, oh wait I can't have that it's lent. Looking forward to Easter Sunday! Though can't fall into the habit of eating a block a day though! Good luck with your pregnancy, how far along are you now?

  2. Well done! I love chocolate, but only the right kind of chocolate. So when my mum hasn't sent me any chocolate from Europe for a while, it's pretty easy to do without.
