No, no. That is not what I am giving up. Geesh. Dirty minds everywhere. This is a Lent post. It’s about what I am giving up for Lent. Okay, back to the point…

Guess I will accept that I am guilty of click-bait, though the vulnerability of putting this out there can make a person feel exposed.

Over the years, I have grown SO MUCH by using the observance of Lent to change behaviors. I’ve lost weight and changed other habits that weren’t so kind to my body.

In the past decade I have transformed into an ultrarunner (running race distances of 31 miles or more), quit drinking alcohol, and moved to a more conscious manner of eating.

But I can’t get rid of the sugar. I am dependent on it. I fully believe the only way to break it is through total abstinence, therefore I am going to *attempt* the Whole30 plan for the 40-day and night duration of Lent.


You can follow me here on this blog as I periodically update how things are going. I hope to do this pretty closely to plan. I understand that I am not perfect, so I strive for progress to be better at this “no-added-sugar” thing.

I would also love any shared recipes!
