Lent + Sweets + Inactivity

So today marks the beginning of 40 days where some people give up something important to them, and some don't. While I do not want to get into my religious beliefs on this blog, I am going to participate in the Lent ritual. I have decided that during Lent this year, I will be saying "NO" to sweets, meaning all of them. *shudder* AND committing to 40 days of exercise and physical activity.

The best part....the man is doing it with me! Well, I'm not going to hold my breathe on the exercising part. But, he did say he would support me and go the no sweet street with me as well. Yay!

There will be no couch potato days like this......

There will be no indulgences like this.....
The picture may not be great but hands down the best bread pudding with caramel sauce I have EVER had!

Since the title of this blog screams what I'm passionate about, anything paired with chocolate tastes better, it'll definitely make for a challenge. But, I guess I'll just have to settle for my other love in life...KISSES!!!

I'm hoping by committing to 40 days straight of exercise that it'll get me back into my old habits where I loved to get up early in the morning before the man, and get a great workout in. I felt better, I had more energy, and I got a lot more accomplished. Plus, it'll help me feel better for MY WEDDING! 93 days and counting.....


  1. Best of luck to you in your challenge! I don't participate in Lent but if I did, I would give up wine....yeah, right. :)

  2. Thanks awesome!! I give you a lot of props for doing this, I wish you will and hope you feel great by the end!
