Did anyone give up anything for Lent??... I am so struggling :(

Recommended Posts

Ok well I was keeping it a secret but I already posted about it on here anyways so...I gave up smoking for lent! It has been 1 week and 3 days! I had one relapse but it tasted so disgusting that I *think* I am done!! Well at least until I decide to have a glass of wine LOL j/k!!

 

Good luck w/ giving up everything - it is HARD!! But I guess that's the point LOL

I gave up sweets. Sweets are totally my weakness, so it has been hard. I have been substituting what I normally eat for dessert - after every meal - cookies, chocolate, ice cream, cupcakes, etc...with vanilla yogurt and granola, or grapes, or some other flavor of yogurt. It has been hard, but I'm really ready to get rid of my crazy sweet tooth.

 

I gave up soft drinks when I was in college and I thought I was never going to be able to stay awake all day - kind of scary! But I have not drank soft drinks (other than every once in a while I have a Shirley Temple haha) since, so it can lead to better health!!

 

Good luck to everyone!!

Sweets are what I gave up. Every time I pass a finding machine or checkout at the store I'm tempted.

i SHOULD have given up eating all together hence the fact that ive gained at least 15-20 lbs. i know this b/c i tried on a blk dress of mine that i wore a year and 1/2 ago and its snug as a rug and at least 2 sizes too small. if i would have tried it on in the store and it fit me this way, i would have went up a size or 2. the fact that i am going to maui in 2 months makes me ill. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

 

but anyway to answer your ?, i gave up cursing and being a b*tch to joe, and to try and have more sex with him. im doing good with the no cursing so far ;o)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
