lentil soup

everyone is giving stuff up for lent. last time i checked, my religion didn't require lent giving up-ness, but i see how some people see it as a good time to give things up and make a change.
i'm not good at giving things up, so i thought i would try to add to, rather than take away. make sense? it does to me. i decided i'm drinking more water. alot more water. i already drank TWO water bottles this morning. that might be a new record for me. ok. so i'm not sharing all my additions, because then this would turn into a list of goals, which is too personal and slightly ridiculous to actually post.
so. are you doing the lent thing? and am i a bad person for not jumping on the bandwagon?

ps...my roommate has been eating lentils lately. i've never had them. i think that will be my official lent celebration. i'm trying lentils.

Lent? Really now?

Also, I thought you were the water drinking queen so I am a little confused on that one.

Also, if you are serious, I have a lentil soup recipe on the site that is actually really good.

Whitney said...

Ah, Yentl. It's been awhile.

I am pretty sure the church will pick up on the Lent thing here soon, so you better jump on NOW. Besides, Lent is for the COOL KIDS. Don't you want to be one of those?

I have never had any interest in the lent thing but then on the first day I thought maybe I'd give it a try. I'm not good at giving up things either so I decided to add in instead. I was planning to work out everyday (even if just on the Wii Fit.) Seemed easy enough. I like to do it at night while Jacob is studying. But of course on the 2nd day I went to sleep and realized the next day I'd already messed it up! I stink.

More water, huh? As long as you have your depends on, I'm sure you'll be fine. Unlike me.
