Gimmicks and Gumption

Did I say "mark my words?" Because what I meant was "Mark my words starting Wednesday." Skipping class today for no good reason. My room is a mess. I need to do laundry. I need to do homework. And I've done nothing. Well, I'm writing this post right now, so I'm going to count it as something so the list of To Do's are not completely unchecked.

So then. STARTING WEDNESDAY! things are gonna happen. Good things. And they are going to continue happening for the next 40 days. Lent is on the horizon and I'm jumping on that Catholic Bandwagon! Just the lent part though, because I need a gimmick to get myself motivated. (Don't judge. Gimmicks are fun!) So I've decided to give up the processed shit and vomming.

I'm ambitious.

By processed foods I'm not including some of the healthier staples in my diet such as nonfat greek yogurt and other nonfat dairy products, tempeh and tofu. Also, Kind Bars and LĂ„rabars will be acceptable. So basically the Lent Allowed Foods are.... Veggies, fruits, seeds and nuts, eggs, nonfat dairy, tofu, tempeh, quinoa, oats and the aforementioned exceptions. And no vomming anything.

This will definitely be challenging, I'm not gonna lie. I can't even fake that this will be easy, it's definitely doable but ooohhhmuhgawd so not gonna be easy. These past two weeks have been the worst of the 2011 and I've got to do something to get my Twenty Eleven Mojo Back!

It's not going to be easy but I must. There is Ferret Status to be had and, bygolly, I will have it.

40 days start tomorrow.


  1. Good luck on your Lent diet! I'm adopting a vegetarian diet for Lent, but I don't think it will be as ambitious-ful as yours, as I'm close to veg anyways. Do you have any good tofu lo-cal recipes I could steal?

    Alrite MOJO! (I felt sparked up just reading that in your post. :) Here's to 40 days of self-improvement!! <3

  2. you. can. do it. i love lara bars too mmmmm.

  3. Man, so many people are giving up things for lent and even though I’m not catholic I want to as well. Hmmmm not sure what I should give up... actually I should give up shopping but I think that would be taking things too far.

    Good luck with the lent challenge :)

    My room is a mess and I need to do laundry but I’d rather spend my time doing other things like hanging out at the pub :/
