Lent 2019 – Update

Happy Wednesday!

So just over one month ago I posted about what I was giving up for Lent this year. Missed it, check it out here!

Lent is only 40 days long, only 40 days. That is honestly nothing. I mean giving up something for 40 days is nothing. But guess what. I caved with almost exactly two weeks left, I repeat, almost two weeks left.

My Lent Sacrifices of 2019:

  • Candy & Popcorn
  • Keep My Room Clean
  • Mindless Spending
  • Meatless Mondays & Fridays

Update:

  • Candy & Popcorn: Well the candy I caved on about a week ago, but I was so sure I would be able to keep up with the popcorn part. But I just caved & there goes that one. I’m literally sitting here eating popcorn as I write this.
  • Keep My Room Clean: My room is an absolute bomb. No matter how many times I clean it, it just gets dirty right away!
  • Mindless Spending: This I broke in March but i’m making up for it by doing a ‘No Spend April‘.
  • Meatless Mondays & Fridays: Yeah, no chance on this. It’s hard when you know you need the protein.

Well as you can see I basically broke all FIVE of my Lent Sacrifices in one month, literally less than two weeks left. I thought I could at least keep one but i’m weak & I caved. So don’t expect a Lent update over Easter like I was planning (LOL).
But guess what, there is always next year & I can try again then!

Did you end up giving anything up for Lent? How are you doing? 

Thanks for reading

  1. Aww nooo!!! It’s ok to fail hehe and it’s still amazing you tried! You gave up a lot of hard things lol like candy and meat and spending. How can you no spend when Payless shoes is going bankrupt and everything is 50% or 60% off!!

  2. I enjoyed this post. 🙂

    And, if it makes you feel any better, I failed as well.

    However, an alternative to giving something up, is to “take something on”, such as being more prayerful, or giving, or reflective.
