So lent has been in full swing for about 2 weeks now. I have not started missing meat yet, but I have been reminded how having meat makes meal-planning easier. Soda, on the other hand, I MISS. I miss having a coke in the afternoon as a quick pick-me-up. I love you, tea, but you just are not cutting it.
In terms of not spending money on things I don’t need. I miss that too, but when I saw how much $$ I had in my checking account, I realized that I didn’t miss it THAT much. I was able to put more money into our savings account, which we will need if we move or whatever.
Today at the gym I decided that ellipticals and walking on a track is just not cutting it. I feel like I have accomplished nothing. I need to run again. I am going to spend my saved money on a really good pair of shoes and hope that shoes help my hip issues. Done. I WILL have a runner’s body again. I don’t care what it costs! The health benefits more than make up for it in the long run. (haha… pun intended)
