Lent 2012 Progress..

So it's not even been a week yet and I managed to break my Lent! I managed to stay off bread for breakfast during weekdays, for all of one day. And I managed to stay off fizzy drinks for about 3 days? I accidentally took a sip from a friend while blindfolded.. On the 4th sip I realised I had given them up for Lent. Now I'm sick so I'm drinking a fizzy Lucozade (a Powerade equivalent here in the UK). I haven't done Zumba once this week, and I also didn't go to badminton on Monday like I normally do because I'm sick.

I have however been on time, which is good, and I'm starting to be more productive, if anyone follows me on Twitter then they would have received my updates on how quickly I was getting through my to-do list! Most of my to-do list is to do with organisation so I'm doing that. The other thing I'm extremely proud of myself for is that I've been able to stay off crisps (chips to you Americans)! Now I'm a crisp-aholic, so this is quite a big deal for me!

Hopefully I can stay off the crisps and keep on doing the other good things I've taken up!

Wish me luck!


  1. A sip from a friend while blindfolded? How in the...?

    1. I was all excited that I had a comment then, but it's only you!

      Yes I should probably explain that..

      It's very boring, not exciting at all. For my dissertation I need to dark adapt people, so I was sitting in a room blindfolded trying to be dark adapted so that I could be a subject in my experiment, which my good friend kindly ran for me, which is basically comparing vision in light conditions (light room) to dark conditions (dark room). If you don't adapt properly the experiment doesn't work so well, hence me sitting there and them passing me drinks etc. They also filmed me blindfolded eating Prawn Crackers... not amused.
