if you are taking statements...
- Some days are good and some are not - just like before this challenge.
- Fries and chips and pasta do NOT compensate for no sweets and soda. That's a good thing!
- Already, in two weeks time I can see just how dependent I have become to consuming. Eating, drinking, buying, computer/blogging (consuming images and ideas, quickly and half-heartedly). I think one of the best things I can learn from this challenge is how to just NOT consume something. Not have a three o' clock treat and not have something in it's place, either. Not nurse a diet coke while doing other things. Not buy shoes (I say this, because I remember when I did Lent I seemed to compensate my lack of treats with purchases). Maybe after a while I can start being patient and find satisfaction in the doing of things. Really, I have been such a slug, so so unhealthy. I haven't put a lot of focus in learning or growing my talents or rearing my family or keeping house.
