Lifestyle; for lent I am giving up….Β 

A bit of a different one here. I’ve decided I am not going to give up chocolate or sugar etc.. you know the usual things. I have decided I am going to give up 5lbs. Yes 5lbs in weight, not money. 

I am really trying to meet my goal weight target & I thought what a brilliant way to try to motivate myself! In January I gave up alcohol for dry January & managed to lose 5lbs so easily… I clearly love a glass of gin πŸ™„πŸ™ˆ but now I am back on the alcohol & trying to budge the remaining 5lbs.

So far I have decided to up my exercise routine. I’m now going to the gym first thing in the morning before work. The days I don’t have to get up early for work (or even go to work) I will be aiming for 10 000 steps! 

If anyone knows of any yummy snacks or ideas on making them then please let me know! Food is my downside 😩 I just love eating! 

What are you giving up? Or is it not for you? 


  1. Haha that’s really smart! I’m guilty of not having given up anything for Lent in such a long time. My parents used to make me and my sisters give up something, but I feel like as I’ve grown up I’ve fallen off. I definitely want to get back into it cause I feel it’s still really important…


  2. A good healthy alternative instead of frozen chips is to make homemade chips using potatoes. I love making my own chips and sweet potato chips and they taste so yummy as well. I actually prefer them to frozen chips now Xx
