I’ve failed. Ohhhhh….yes. (insert huge sigh)
Where did it all go wrong?
I’m usually pretty good about Lent — you know that 40-day period of sacrifice on the run up to Easter? I have a feeling this is going to be a strike against me on a growing list
, although they’re probably not strikes at this point but gongs— I’m serious.
My sacrifices were the following:
- No added sugar
- No added salt
- No cocktails
If there were others on the list, obviously I didn’t commit them to memory, and actually, I’m slowly losing my memory,
which is why I have 10,000 Post-It Notes neatly and strategically placed on my desk — definitely O.C.D.
Here’s where I failed:
- Not only have I gone gangbusters with the sugar, I’m all over brown sugar. I drank mint tea and no less than 3 heaping teaspoons were in the mug. I’m a stone’s throw away from being a diabetic if I keep this up.
- I eat a seafood. A lot of seafood. Food from the ocean makes me happy. Here’s the problem…Have you ever had bland, unsalted seafood? Ewww…so not appetizing. Yep, pass the salt, please! And if it’s a sushi day, soy sauce is a must — although I guess I’m not so bad because I prefer the “low sodium” soy?
- So, the no cocktails thing. (long, audible sigh) I tried. Really I did.
I’m not a drinker.However, look at that gorgeous drink. Just let it all sink in…By the way, it’s called, “Birds of Paradise” and you can find it at Havana Central in New York City. (Why do I feel like I’ve posted already about this? Oh well.) Mmmmm…and look at the picture…it had sugar around the rim! Great, another strike. It really wasn’t my fault. It was girls’ night out before an evening on Broadway.
Lent: Is it possible to do a “Do Over” because this whole 40-day thing…I failed.
So, is anyone else failing during Lent or did you make New Year’s resolutions that have already gone ‘poof!’?
Remember this blog post: I hope I don’t crack…? Well, I cracked.
