Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent.
Every year, I attempt to give up something. A few years ago, I gave up milk because I used to drink an abnormal amount of the stuff. Nowadays, that would be easy because I don’t drink milk that much anymore. This year I have decided to give up carbs. Why? There are a few reasons.
First, I don’t need them. Carbs, you are harmful to me despite how much I love you.
Second, I am going to the Bahamas in 3 months…enough said, right?
Third, it’ll definitely be a challenge and I need more of those in my life right now. (Ahem, 5K training….)
So, for the next 40 days, I will be carb-free. No bread, pasta, crackers, etc. etc. It will impact my cooking but I don’t think it will be so dramatic that I will slip into a boring routine. I’ll do my best to change up the proteins, veggies, soups, even the desserts since I consider cakes, cookies and the like to be serious carbos.
Nevertheless, with my dance schedule, new 5K training and Jillian Michaels ab routine, I think a bikini in 3 months just might be possible. Maybe, we’ll see.
