I have decided to give up running for Lent. Forget about that half marathon that I've already shelled out $300 to participate in. And all those miles I have logged in training. And the arm warmers, tank, and sparkly BIC Band that I bought just for that race. And the new shoes that haven't even arrived yet. Forget it!
.... just kidding.
But I am giving up two things for Lent.
|Starbucks. Adieu, beloved Caramel Macchiato, until April.|
Yes folks, you read it here first. I'm going to refrain from purchasing overpriced lattes and workout clothing for the next 40 days.
In honor of Fat Tuesday, I stopped by Starbucks on my way to work and got a grande Caramel Macchiato, which I then drank extremely slowly (it took me an hour to get through it).
And I bought one last piece of Lululemon:
|Cool Racerbreak Stripe Ribbed in Paris Pink |
(because we all know that if 'Paris' describes an item, I must have it)
Hopefully my abstinence from these two will help my wallet get fatter over the next 40 days.
Or, I will just go on a crazy Starbucks-fueled Lululemon buying binge on April 9.
It's really a toss up. Only time will tell.
Are you giving up anything for Lent?
