Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent, and this year it happens to fall the day before Valentine's. So it's sort of rough that I'm giving up chocolate before one of the biggest holidays for sweets.
40 days of no chocolate starts here. Don't worry, I had a handful of Lindt Lindor truffles last night to hold me over.
It made me think of something my Monday night [insanely intense] spinning instructor always says [that mkes me hate her a little bit inside]... "you can do anything for 3 minutes." She always says it. The most torturous, hardest intervals for 3 minutes. But, it's only 3 minutes, and when you look at it verses your entire day, it's not so bad.
40 days out of 365 isn't going to kill me. "You can do anything for 40 days!"
Happy t-40 days until Easter [and lots of chocolate treats]!
