We’re over 2 weeks into Lent and I figured I’d give a little check in.
No sugar and no judgement. I’ve somehow decided it would be a good idea to remove from my life the keystones that my whole self is built upon.
On my Sugar Free eating:
So far so good. For the most part.
I’ll be honest and say that I haven’t been checking that everything I eat is completely sugar-free but my focus is more on ensuring that I stay away from obvious sweets than the sugar in my crackers or my nonna’s pasta sauce.
But I have been staying away from desserts. My dessert cravings may have decreased a little (a very little) but not my sugar cravings. I’ve been eating tonnes of fresh and dried fruit to keep my taste buds satisfied . . . but I could really, really go for a cookie right now. I miss cookies hard.
On Being Judgmental
Also, for Lent I’ve been trying to better myself by attempting to be less judgmental. I know it’s not exactly a switch that you can turn off, but at least I can be more aware of times that I’m being judgmental and I try to let it go.
So when a girl beside me in the change room at the gym spritzes perfume and lint rolls her yoga pants, my initial reaction is to roll my eyes in annoyance at the necessity of a pre-workout beauty routine. But then I think
“Let it go. Why is this your business anyway? There’s nothing wrong with her wanting to look good.
Besides, she’s probably thinking you’re a smelly slob who should put on deodorant anyway.”
I guess being less judgmental is making me self conscious by thinking other people are judging me. . .
hmmm . . . I don’t think that’s how this thing is supposed to work.
