Good morning, everyone! If you’re like me, you need a respite from the nonstop, 24/7 media barrage of coronavirus and/or Super Tuesday news, right?
So why not stop here and rejoice with me as I celebrate my first weigh-in of Lent with (of course) a loss!
Whew! It’d be kind of embarrassing to GAIN weight during Lent, right? I mean, it’s happened before, because even if you go full-on Orthodox (kinda sorta) and give up meat and cheese, there’s still bread. Yummy, filling, calorific bread!
And y’know, I should confess* I’m not exactly super religious about this stuff. I mean, YAY JESUS and all that!! But the institutional structures that have been put up in His name sometimes leave me a little cold.
Still, half the whole faith battle is keeping the candles lit till the Light comes on, right?
And I like lighting candles, so that helps! Meantime, I’ll keep doing the Lenten thing, but I’ll also keep counting the calories, because contrary to what some vegetarians might tell you, it is DEFINITELY possible to be a fat vegan!
So let’s see: my todo list so far:
- Keep lighting the candles, and
- Keep counting the calories.
Sure, whatever you say! See ya next week, my fellow nerds!
*’Cause I’m Catholic — get it??
