This is about Lent, one of my favorite traditions. Do you know me? Then you know I love little games of deprivation. Deprivation Games.
I try to challenge myself for Lent because it is a finite way to get rid of something that has become a habit. I usually give up candy and something else, like beer. This year I should give up wine and Facebook but then what would I have left in life?
So, I'm giving up candy and Ritz. What's that you say? Ritz? Why on earth would anyone ever need to give up something like Ritz?
At my house, we buy Ritz at Costco and those buttery, flakey treats are my go to for any mealtime. Not so healthy, not so wise.
Candy is a no brainer, no one needs it and I won't miss it. But I do eat it and so not eating it is better than eating it.
So there you go. No mas Ritz. See you in Easter you crispy devils.
10,000 steps a day: I nailed it again! Every day in February.
Drink less wine & more water: I did so so on this one. We had a lot of guests this month which means more wine.
Get more sleep - see above note. I don't think I did as well with this in February, but I did change the settings on my phone so at 10pm the lighting switches to night time, thus indicating it is time to go to bed. I think I'll see progress on this in March.
On my 52 political actions, from the top:
Marching in protest
Calling my senators not to confirm Davos
Donating to the ACLU
Reached out and chatted with angry, conservative donor
Sent email to Feinstein about why I marched
Donated to Chris Murphy from Connecticut
That's it! I need to double up here. I am falling behind!
