Apparently, I've given up my sanity for Lent.

So the other day I was talking to my friend Sarah about things people do for Lent. I'm not Catholic, but I am familiar with the concept, and I've always thought it was an interesting practice to commit to something like that. She told me about the idea of doing something rather than giving up something, which intrigued me. We decided we were going to do exercises at home every night for forty days.

Naive little us, we said "100 situps and 100 pushups."

Yeah. Har har we're so cute and....one hundred pushups is not happening. So we're talking about maybe doing arm lifts, or mixing things up to incorporate other exercises.

I should have just given up sewing for Lent...but I suppose doing something that comes naturally to you doesn't really count, does it? ;) If you don't hear from me for a while...I'll blog again after Easter when I can feel my arms again.

    Neat little thing that helps you slowly build up your situps, pushups, etc. at a pace tailored to your very own starting point.
