Today is Ash Wednesday, and I am one happy camper. Unfortunately, I partook in an epic binge yesterday as it was rightly called "Fat Tuesday" or Mardi Gras. But the good thing is that I gave up chocolate for Lent, so I am not prone to bingeing over the Lenten period because my binges almost always circle around chocolate or are at least provoke by cookie dough ice cream. Additionally, Ash Wednesday, as well as Good Friday, are the two days of the year that you are expected to fast. That's right! It is ACCEPTABLE to actually not eat...every day should be this glorious! I am going to try to keep the fast going if possible, and once I fail, I am starting the ABC. I figure that since the ABC diet is 50 days and Lent is about 47 or so (they don't include Sundays in the classic 40 day count), then the diet would be the perfect plan. Priests often say that it is good to give something up and/or do something in addition. Obviously, this is not what they had in mind but whatever. I have to go catch a bus to get to class now, but I will check in later at my first chance because I have more to say.

Happy fasting day!
