The first week was easy.
The second and third weeks have been a tad bit more difficult.
After two weeks of not hosting our teen group or small group due to conflicts and sickness, we were back on schedule during the second week of lent.
Which meant I was back to baking and creating snacks.
I love to bake. It relaxes me but I realized I have a tendency to lick spoons, spatulas, and clean out bowls. It has been a test of my will to not give in to the temptation to have sweets. It is actually been more difficult than easier.
Although going without the fountain soda has been easier than I thought. There are times, like when we have pizza that I really wish I could have a soda. I am not finding my car driving myself itself to the convenience store like in the past.
I do miss some of the daily interactions on facebook but in general I find it freeing to not be on it. I know I will definitely limit my time on facebook once lent is over. I realize how much time I waste in a day on facebook even if it is in little snippets each day.
If you gave something up for lent, how is it going for you?
