Fat Tuesday: Last chance to break out the unhealthy snacks

Born and raised in a Catholic family, Lent has always been something I grew up around–teachers encouraging us kids to give something up, and aim to do something to better ourselves.

But whether you are religious or not, Lent is a time to challenge and better yourself. That’s why this year I’ve decided to give up unhealthy snacks.

This is going to be a tough one, because chips are my favorite thing to eat for a snack. It doesn’t matter the time of day or night, when hunger calls–potato chips are the best.

I’ve also decided to make an effort to go to the gym five days a week. It’s amazing the excuses I come up with not to. It’s too cold. I’m too busy. I’d rather eat some potato chips.

Is there anyone else giving up anything for Lent? Share any ideas or past experiences by leaving me a comment! And remember, today is the last day to indulge before you begin your challenge.

Now, some potato chips are calling my name…


  1. I love chips too, especially Krunchers. We celebrated Mrs Ford’s birthday today (it’s actually tomorrow) with a large fat-laden BBQ dinner. Cake later. Tomorrow, we atone for sins and try to sit up straight.

  2. I think you take after your mother because I love the chip snacks too!! Although I don’t have the will power to give them up for Lent…..you go girl!!

  3. I’m actually not catholic but I decided to give up listening to this one Korean singer his name is wang lee hom. hes really kind of weird

  4. Haha, good luck! Potato chips aren’t really my thing, but maybe I’ll have to get into them to eat around you!

    As for my sacrifice, I think I’ll avoid time-wasting web sites, get something constructive done.
